Hey everyone - so, here we are, Chapter Six. I feel like this is where things really start to pick up, plot-wise, but I feel like I'm always trying to tell myself that, heh.

I've recently hit a mighty block and it's been kinda rough motivating myself to do any work, lately. I have the Q&A pages done already so there's no concern, there, but depending on how things go I might take a week hiatus, if that's okay with you guys... let me know in the comments below.

Either way, I can't wait to see how you all like this next chapter. I love you all, thank you!

It's important that you take care of you, first. If you need to take a break, take a break. I'm pretty sure you'll not lose anyone.

LOVE the cover. The layout is goals.

GOD!!! I am STILL not over this cover!!
This is just intensely well-done, man. It's more well-done than those charbroiled playing cards up there, and lemme tell ya, those are pretty dang well-done.
And I really love how everyone looks so serious and then Al just looks like he's being crushed by existential ennui. This is a character I can relate to.

Aww, thank you so much, Tali :'D

I liked this one, yeah. And yeah, Al isn't doing so hot, haha. He actually SPEAKS this chapter so we get to see him like, saying things, to Hugh!

I mean... I'm for the taking care of myself part, but uh, the rest... is that taking care of myself? XD

I don't know what I'd do with a whole smuggling ring! I'd probably drop it somewhere D:

A brief respite for you so that you can recharge your mental batteries and then probably deliver better story-telling in the future? That's a no-brainer. Step back and do something completely different that's not art or story related. Maybe even take a day trip to someplace you have never been before. Or, visit your Happy Place once more, wherever it may be.

We will still be here when you get back. And you (and the story/artwork) will be better for it.

Hey, thanks, Bob :) I'll see how the coming week goes and let you all know, I hope you enjoy the Q&A pages going up next week. If I can recover from this slump by the time those go up I should be fine.

Be well! :D

Awesome cover.
Making a comic is a grind, I'm sure, so thanks!
If you need a break (and who doesn't?), we'll be waiting.

We can't wait to see what happens next, Those Unknowable is, as we've said several times over on Twitter, one of our very favorite comics. The story, the writing, the pacing, the art, everything is so polished and well done.
