Apologies for no update over the weekend. This comic went through, like, 4 drafts. Eventually I landed on this, and this is the chapter end. There was enough dialogue for two comics, which were originally planned, but since comics are a visual medium… when in doubt… go with the wordless concept.

And with the chapter end I’d like to say thanks again to all my loyal, die hard and/or casual readers for helping Shotgun Shuffle stay on its feet. I still get emails saying “Remember when you almost quit.” Yeah. I do. All the time. :) So whether your supporting me on Patreon, or just supporting me with word of mouth and viewing my silly comics, I thank you. It really does mean the world to me, and I’m more than happy to bring you Chapter 5 on Wednesday. If you haven’t noticed, I’m very adamant about each comic being upheld to a certain standard of work. No comic, no matter how much or how little it impacts the overall story, is ever phoned in. Each has to be my best possible work. It can be tiring, it can be stressful, and God knows, it’s time consuming. But it’s what you’re worth. Sure I want to be a better artist, and writer in the long term.. but it’s never about me. It’s about how the webcomic community deserves the best possible quality of comics their artists can produce. This is something I felt before I made strip one. It’s how I still fell about it now.

On a similar note, there is a comic that started almost a year ago I’d like to plug, which is entitled Nevermind. It’s cute, it’s different, and it’s also in relative obscurity. It’s only at about 40 strips, so it’s not hard to catch up… so if you’re into “adorably weird” (and if you’re reading this, you run a high likelihood) please throw some love at Azure by clicking the link and perhaps leaving a comment. One thing I enjoy the most is the use of colored word bubbles. I may steal that.
