Okay, so here’s the thing.

I have an almost-finished page sitting on my Cintiq right now, which I somehow managed to power through despite compulsively checking Twitter every five seconds to see which cities gassed their protestors tonight (spoiler alert, mine did!), and it just doesn’t feel right. I think proceeding with the current scene in this climate of unrest would be tone-deaf and inappropriate, especially considering the racial makeup of the characters and the roles they’re playing.

It’s fiction! But fiction gets a little too real sometimes, or sometimes the placement and timing of it can come off as disrespectful, which is the last thing I want to do– because I actually care very much about the Black Lives Matter movement and absolutely don’t want to undermine it, even inadvertently, through the escapism I’m creating as a white person.

I’m sorry to do this right after a break. The Patreon is basically all of my income right now, so I’m kind of shooting myself in the foot, but there it is.

Doomsday will be back ASAP. In the meantime, I have protests to support, and so, I hope, do you.
