And now my little comic’s story has come to a close. At least for now. I still have some ideas brewing for the future, but at the moment, my characters and I need a break from the spotlight. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the old gang together again. Chances are, you’ll see some of them again soon. We’ll see.
I’ve been getting a little impatient with the progression of my comic, so I decided that I’ve been drawing enough to kick things up a notch. From now on,the comic will be updating TWICE every week, with new comics every Monday and Friday. Yes, that’s twice as much Out at Five for the same low price. Stop on by to start and end your workweek right!
I gave up Facebook for Lent. That didn’t mean the updates stopped, though. Hope you’re enjoying them.
Oh, hi! Did you just drop in? Well, welcome. Out at Five is a comic featuring characters of mine who have been around a while, and I just recently started drawing after a long hiatus. The story has picked up five years after certain events took place. You may want to consider a few options before diving right in.
- If you’ve never read my comic before, you can start at the beginning here.
- If you’ve read Out at Five but haven’t dropped by since my three-year hiatus (running between 2011 and 2014), you may wish to start here.
- If you’d like the extended backstory that took place in my first web comic, Cortland (which started back in 2004), the whole thing is available here.
Why, hello there! This has certainly been a nice, long hiatus, hasn’t it? In case you just tuned in, I stopped drawing comics back in late 2011 when my daughter was born. It’s been a fun, comic-free ride ever since then, and I’ve just recently added a baby boy into our family mix. Nevertheless, I’ve just recently picked up the pen again and have started sketching up some ideas for a kind of Out at Five Reunion, so you can see what all our characters have been up to since everything ground to a halt.
Also, I just had an extensive interview via email with Ideal Comics about my comics — mostly Cortland, but that kind of includes Out at Five, since they’re both wrapped up in the same universe. It brought back a lot of memories from the days when I was drawing a new comic every weekday and spent a good portion of my free time online with my buddies at Comic Genesis rather than chasing around a rambunctious two-year old.
