Webcomic description

What if you woke up one day in a strange new world with no memories? That's exactly what happened to Aweli the Bulbasaur: she can't remember anything but her name and the fact that she used to be a human. As amazing as the Pokèmon world seems, Aweli soon realizes something much more sinister is taking place right underneath everyone's noses...and Aweli seems to be deeply connected to it. With the help of her newfound best friend Kannick, Aweli searches for answers; to the past, to the present calamity, and to her own memories. But perhaps some things are best left to rot in the shadows of time.....

Why should i be mad at you? I mean come on,youre the author and not me. You have all the rights to do whatever you want with every single one of your comics,so that means you can take a break whenever you want. Just focus on wherever your passion is and dont force yourself to make comic pages,that would only increase your stress levels (nobody wants high stress levels) and burn yourself out. After all,every human needs to take a break sometimes <3<3
You have no obligation whatsoever to keep creating this comic, and no-one has any right whatsoever to be mad at you at all in any way over you not updating. It would have been different if you officially, through a webshop or similar, say, clearly offered 100 pages for like $10 per person buying, and then after receiving payment didn't deliver those pages even after a very long time, people might want a refund - but you are giving this away for free, so people have absolutely no right to complain in any way.

As an aside, there are very, very, very many webcomics that goes on hiatuses, and for most of them without coming back ever. I think it is much more the norm than anything else, and it is 100% OK. Especially because people's interests changes over time, and they often grow and experience stuff and the like, and they become busy with other things. And some people have bills to pay, and their webcomics may often give them (almost) no income if any at all. And again, when you give something away for free, others really can't make demands of any kind. I would suggest that you should only update the comics if you like to do it and you think it helps you well in various ways. Other suggestions I have is that you can also do smaller webcomics (like 10-page experiments), or unrelated stuff, or what you feel like - you should do what you like to do.

One way to look at it is to take it as a learning experience and reflect on what you learned, what you did well, what you did less well, what you could have done better, and so on, and see what you can learn from it - not that you have to tell anyone else about it, just ponder it a bit if you like to and you think it could be helpful.

If you later return to the comic, and think that you don't want to continue it at a later date, you can always do a kind of 1-page text summary that helps close it up. I think that is a nice way of doing it.

Also, I think your comics are very nice, and thank you for giving a heads-up, that is a nice thing to do - some people end up only giving a heads-up after like 1.5 years or even longer after the last update, so giving a heads-up while updates have still been coming is very good style of you :).
That’s totally understandable! It can be hard to balance more than one project at once. Just take your time to focus on where your passion is and make sure to take breaks so you don’t burn yourself out.
