The Triumphant Return

This was originally going to be a more spectacular and hard-hitting comeback, like you see on TV when a washed up soap star hosts a new reality quiz show; unfortunately it turned out to be less dramatic, like when a washed up soap star hosts the supplemental show to the reality quiz, on a second channel.

You know the kind.

But yeah, there's an arguably kickass new site, and some of my favourite comics to date, looking (again, arguably) better than ever — only problem being the hosting and domain won't play nice with each other for another 30 days. So that whole "hit the ground running" thing I was aiming for kinda went out the window.

So that left me with a couple of choices: aim for the dramatic re-return and go another month without updates while I wait until I can get the site online, or say to hell with it, and start updating regardless. And as we've already gone far too long without a proper update, I honestly couldn't leave y'all hanging simply in the name of vaguely dramatic effect!

As for me, I'm off to the US again — and should in fact be there by the time this goes up, provided I didn't burst into flames as soon as I stepped off the plane — but As You're Up will continue to update weekly while I'm away (and afterwards of course!)

Glad to see you posting again. One thing I've come to trust is that you always come back.

Like herpes.

Thanks guys! Having a great time over here, catching up with folks and just-about-not-turning-to-ash in the heat!

Also Gibson, I may just have to use "Like herpes" as an endorsement quote on the book when it gets printed!

your art is amazing! what editing program do you use?

I will now be disappointed if you don't.

In all seriousness, I don't know how much of a selling point a quote from me would be, but if you want an endorsement, I'd write you one. In fact, I think I may have already done.
