The Author Says...

Yesterday I put Fathead on a sort of hiatus and promised that it wasn’t ending… Well, after mulling over things for a bit I’ve decided that perhaps it is. As much as I’ve loved making the comic in the past, recently I’ve felt less and less eager to keep it going when I’ve got a hundred other things to focus on as well. In some ways the comic is becoming a chore and I never wanted that. So I think it should end… though not immediately.

I’ve still got twenty or so comics I was holding onto for an eBook I was planning to publish – though I doubt I will now – and will use them as updates for the next couple months. I’m also gonna draw a proper ending for the comic as well. Things will start updating again on the 2nd of January (which means there’ll be regular updates up until March).

I’m really sorry to just end everything like this. The thought of finishing Fathead has been lingering around the back of my mind for a while, but I didn’t really regard it as much of an option until now. It’s perhaps the thing I’m most proud of creating – it wouldn’t have lasted three years without everyone who reads it – but I think this is the right time for it to end.

Thanks for reading, see you in January.

Fathead's always reminded me a lot of GSICD.

Best to end it while you're still feeling up to it. I'll miss seeing your updates on my subs page. Good luck.

Thank you, Matt. You've been really supportive of the whole comic from the beginning! I did end up taking quite a bit of inspiration from GSICD...

Can't thank you enough for reading it. I'm not gonna rule-out the possibility of there being new comics in the future... just not anytime soon. :)

Yeah, best to end it before it jumps the shark.

Are you going to do a story comic next? I think I'd like to see that!

I'm probably gonna take a break from comics for a little while after this but I would reeeally love to do a story comic sometime in the future.
