And? All you'd hear is the sound of crickets. Last update was July. Ridiculous.

:soapbox: I don't know how Piro gets by with his rate of update, when MegaTokyo is his income, but that's not Arioch's deal, confound it! Outsider is done 'cause he damn well feels like it!

Geez: It's not like y'all pay a dime to the man … :roll:

And I read two webcomics produced as a second job for both writers and they manage to update at least three days and as many as five per week.

megatokyo updated fairly regularly for awhile, long enough to build up a good sized archive and a strong following. plus it's been around for a long time. it helps the story and art is pretty good. now they make most of their money off of selling things like T-shirts, printings of the compilations, bags, plush toys, art supplies, etc., to their fans.

on the otherhand, you have comics like Schlock Mercenary, where the comic hasn't missed a single daily update (even when their server room literally exploded, it was only delayed for a few hours) in over a decade, and is still ongoing.. it makes it money similarly, mostly by selling compilation books (since archive diving can take forever otherwise), and some spin off products (like the plasma cannon instruction manual coloring book and their upcoming miniatures game)

honestly, while i find the glacially slow update rate of Outsider annoying, i understand it. and frankly, i read some comics that update even slower (looking at you Dresden Codak!), not to mention a number which are so irregular in updates that they haven't updated in years (Alpha shade, Dela the Hooda, and others..)

Sorry, but I call bologna on that one. I really want to love Outsider. I really, really do. It's got superb production value and there is a great backstory here. But good grief man, we're down to maybe two updates per year now. To me, this says that Arioch either has too much going on IRL or just has a shoddy work ethic. Either way, it means that this comic, at this rate, will NEVER get finished within a human lifetime. This is not an exaggeration. And I, for one, refuse to remain invested in a comic that seems not to acknowledge that it DOES have fans that will wait 7 months for a single update. It's flat-out disrespectful.

For that reason, in my opinion Arioch needs to take a long, honest look at his capacity, ability, and desire to produce this comic and either move forward with a realistic and REGULAR production schedule, or quit.

or he should, as an alternative, find interested and capable fans that help with the work, he can then just give the basic storyline and leave the rest to a team.

Honestly, Schlock is the example I'm following with Jack of Harts. There is an update every single day. Period. End of line.

Honestly... **** this comic. If the author can't bother to post an update, I'm not going to be bothered to follow it.

I reiterate what I said earlier in this thread. Based on the current speed of updates, all of Outsider's current readers will have literally died of old age before the planned story arcs have been completed. This is not an exaggeration.

He's doing art assets for a computer game if you check his other projects.

My assumption is that once he gets done with that he will return to doing this...

maybe...:)

That's nice, but I stand by my assertion that everyone currently reading this comic will be dead before it's finished.

When I saw this one walk out on the last page, it occurred to me Our Hero might still be under mindprobe, like some Farscape story I half remember, or the "simsence prison" thing from Shadowrun …

Woop-de-doo. And for a whole year we had NONE. Or maybe 1 in 6 months.

Nothing has changed with this production schedule. A slight burst of activity doesn't make up for the fact that this comic's targeted production is unfeasible.
