With these two NSFW pages and a Ch12 preview, that's a wrap for chapter 11!
Unsounded's been going since July of 2010. Six years! 11 chapters and 940 colour pages to date. Not a bad run!
But I need a little break - not for my own sake but for the comic's. I want the space again to really wow and surprise you all without the panic of finishing three pages a week reining in my ambition. I also need the time to hammer out more script (though the entire story is outlined I've drawn through most of the script I had!) and design new scenery, costumes, creatures, and even write new songs and do animations. I hadn't needed to worry about any of that very much while we were in Ethelmik, but no more treading water now - we're moving out into the world!
So I have to ask you marvellous readers to be understanding these next few months while I'm working hard for you. I may not be posting, but I'm filling the page buffer with all the wonders I can manage. At the same time, in a few weeks I'll begin posting instalments of an illustrated prose prequel story on Patreon that describes Duane's first year or so undead, and how he coped with his deteriorating body and mind. You can go get in on that, or simply sign up for this mailing list to be informed when the comic's updates resume.
But maybe you need more? Long time readers may remember that I occasionally like to host a fanworks contests, and I think it's time for another one. Are you a fanfic writer or fanartist? Read all the details here!
It's been a heckuva ride and a real honour playing your storyteller. I appreciate you guys more than I can say and you deserve the best comic I can deliver. I hope to see you back here when it resumes on January 9th, and we can discover together where the river takes our zombie and our brat.76 Comments
