Wonder Weenies :: If you live any where near a Scandinavian (or in Minnesota like yours truly), you've heard a Sven and Ollie joke. While I don't plan on making any of those, I couldn't resist naming our two attendants after this tradition.

Remedy Is On Indefinite Hiatus

I know. And all I can do is apologize. Not only to the few hundred regular readers we have (don't forget those tireless Google bots) but even more so to Corey and anyone else who invested in making this comic a reality.

For several years now Remedial Comics has been a hole I throw small amounts of money into. Whenever I had more to spare I would sometimes throw a one time large amount of money into it (and I'm not alone Corey spent a mint on Wondercon).

But I simply don't have the money anymore.

I know many of you would point out that it's pretty cheap to put a comic on the internet. And you are right. Corey works for peanuts. But that's the problem. I can't even afford peanuts anymore. And there's no way I'd even ask him to work for less.

Simply put I'm on empty.

Now I don't want you to think I created Remedy to make money. I didn't. I love telling stories and I love Artur Siedleski and Ash and all their friends. And I wanted to tell their stories. And I hoped that people wanted to read about them.

But the people didn't. Not really. I'm not discounting you faithful readers. I truly appreciate your devotion. But you need a lot of ballast to keep even a small ship like this one stable. And without the readers we just never got the support that comes with that.

And now I'm broke. Actually like most Americans these days I'm in debt. And I don't have the funds to pay the debts. Let alone make new investments in the comic which has never shown a profit. I can't find a job, I have to find a new place to live. In short things are dire.

So I'm doing what I have to do to try and keep a roof over my head and food in my stomach. It is what it is. I was so looking forward to getting Ash and Remedy back on the streets together. But life is full of uncertainty. Maybe this will just be a temporary stop. I certainly hope so. But for now I'm afraid this is the last Remedy update you can expect.

Again. I'm very sorry. I hope to be back. But I can't promise anything at this point.

Wonder Weenies will continue on as normal. So if you're a regular reader please continue to do so. I may not be able to compensate Corey for making Remedy with me but I can (with help from one awesome contributor) keep the site up and running. So at least there's that.

Best wishes.
