Page fifty! A little milestone :) How time flies! 50 short pages from writing a letter in desperation to jumping on a table declaring he’s the king of thieves. I hope you guys have been enjoying the comic! Comments below are always welcome!

Transcripts

Macavity: You?! Why aren’t you dead?
Sid: (stepping up onto the table) Hah, none can kill the Thiefking! When death came for me, I stole back my life from his very grasp!

Harry: (making her way round the back of the crowd, dropping comments as she goes) That’s better than Macavity ever did, isn’t it?
Assorted Rogues: Aye!
Assorted Rogues: Yeah!

Harry: Seems like he’d be a much better leader.
Assorted Rogues: Maybe so..

Harry: He must’ve stolen the mark from him, after all.
Assorted Rogues: That’s right!
Assorted Rogues: He looks the part, for certain!

Macavity: Hold this.
Macavity: I’ve got a fly to swat.

No I don’t like this comic, too awesome for me.

yes, that is my issue as well. she’s overdoing it on the awesome quotient! speaking of, komikate, how are you keeping up with the rigorous 3 updates/week schedule? way more work than your darken schedule, no? i am grateful, impressed and surprised!

I’m full time on comics now, and that helps a lot! Much poorer but much happier :)

 I must ask, do you actually make a living out of these comics?

Haha, I’d be doing much worse if I weren’t married, I’ll put it that way. In a year or two, if things go well, I’ll be making a living wage. It’s not an industry for the money!

Done right, you can do decently enough for yourself.  If you want an example thereof, look at Howard Tayler of Schlock Mercenary.  He went from being a part-time cartoonist and the product manager for GroupWise at Novel to a full time cartoonist about around October of 2004, having made it somewhat of a public announcement at Linucon 1.0.

I do do pretty ok, I just need to build up a bigger reader base and get some books out! I know the path, I’ve just got to make my way down it :)

Books will be a mainstay for sure, but I encourage you to set up a method for people to pay for downloadable pdfs too. I have been astonished at the number of people quite happy to pay money for what they could almost as easily see for free. (I work at Studio Foglio, so there’s a few years of hard data now.)

I’m taking a stroll through the archives and just realizing this: asking someone to hold your stuff in a room full of professional thieves is just plain stupid, Macavity.

(Yes, I know, they’re his goons and loyal and all that, but still.)
