Jeph is busy (was: Is Alice Grove a deadfic?)
« on: 04 Aug 2015, 12:30 »

Jeph's normal schedule for publishing Alice Grove is "Each Tuesday and each Thursday". However, the last publish was July 27th, a tuesday, and it's been a week since we got anything. Has Jeph abandoned Alice?

He's been away at an event - that's why there were fillers in QC as well.  He doesn't bother with fillers for Alice Grove, but he has done some catching up in the past by publishing two comics later in the week.

It's a bit early to be calling it that. Jeph's been dealing with some other stuff and probably just doesn't have time right now to keep up with both comics. Alice has always been and likely always will be the side project, while QC is his bread and butter. Comics will resume when life calms down, I'm sure.

Indeed.  He's also in process to move to Canada as well, so give it time.

He usually updates on Twitter with info. His latest tweet says Alice is pushed back to Thursday/Friday this week.

Also, no updates for a week is enough to call for the CSI team? Some of the comics I follow update so irregularly that a monthly update would be remarkable. Some disappeared for up to a year before restarting because of the artist's life issues.

Goblins went on an over-a-year hiatus a while back as well. Sometimes comics just do peter out.. The creators lose interest, other obligations get in the way or writer's blocks turn to mountains and the comic just get fewer updates as time goes on or stop abruptly. Many times the creators will announce it though when they do decide to end a series. None of that really applies with Jeph and Alice Grove though. I do believe he is still keen on telling this story. Life just has a way of disrupting plans sometimes. It's good at that.

Just one more year and the nutjobs in Australia will be gone though. Abbott is less popular than stepping on a Lego brick with bare feet.

QC in Canada would be interesting but highly unlikely.

And has been since five minutes after the last election. He's the political equivalent of Australia getting a bad tattoo while very drunk.

I didn't know Jeph was moving to Canada, but I don't follow his Twitter etc.

I'd like to share that optimism. I can't shake the nagging thought he'll experience a surge of popularity, probably due to fearmongering, and somehow get back in.

I'm not sure Abbott realises he didn't get elected because Australia thought he would be a good prime minister, he got in because Australia was sick of Gillard and Rudd constantly fighting for the Leadership and were wary of minority governments after the debacle of the election before. I'm believing he'll get voted out next election because I'll go mad if I believe otherwise. It does worry me that Australia nearly always gives governments a second term though.

And in case any non-Australian's think we are exaggerating about this jerk:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3IaKVmkXuk

The only thing I don't like about this video is that it was made before he decided to give an Australian Knighthood to Prince Philip of Britain and before he said his greatest achievement as Minister for Women was getting rid of the carbon tax because it was aimed at putting more money in household budgets.

I'm willing to bet that's because Alice Grove is story based and QC is character/relationship based.

Thought I'd go count up how many AG comics (not including text-only notes) we've had in each of the months of 2016:

January - 5
February - 6
March - 8
April - 6
May - 6
June - 6
July - 4
August - 4
Sept. (so far) - 2

Looking back at that, there's only one month where you could say the comic has updated twice a week. In the others, it's updated either about 1.5 times a week, or, in July through today, once a week.

I'm not berating Jeph; keeping up a weekday comic (QC) on top of AG is a real commitment. And I appreciate his commitment to keeping the quality of all his comics high.

But I do think we ought to re-think calling AG a twice-weekly comic if it only updates at half that rate. Just-sayin'...

March - 8
April - 6
May - 6
June - 6
July - 4
August - 4
Sept. (so far) - 2

Looking back at that, there's only one month where you could say the comic has updated twice a week. In the others, it's updated either about 1.5 times a week, or, in July through today, once a week.

I'm not berating Jeph; keeping up a weekday comic (QC) on top of AG is a real commitment. And I appreciate his commitment to keeping the quality of all his comics high.

But I do think we ought to re-think calling AG a twice-weekly comic if it only updates at half that rate. Just-sayin'...

He said he'd be getting back on track shortly so maybe we'll get two this week or the next.

January - 5
February - 6
March - 8
April - 6
May - 6
June - 6
July - 4
August - 4
Sept. (so far) - 2
