Folks, thank you for the tremendous outpouring of supportive comments. I want to take some time and answer as many questions and dispel many of the rumors that were posted here, rather than address them individually in the long column of comments for 666.
First: Discontinuing this comic because I can’t make money.
The amount of effort that I expend to put up the comic three times per week was far outpacing the monetary return. Contrary to what you might think, they best way for webcomic artists to make money from their comics at the present time is to print books and sell the collections. That’s where the big I-can-quit-my-day-job money is. Without that resource available to me the best I can do is dice sales and the occasional T-shirt. Quite frankly it is not enough. Make no mistake: I have many, MANY more models in my work room than I would have had without sponsors that paid me in store credit, so I cannot say that I did not ever benefit from the comic.
B: Games Workshop shut me down.
Not quite true. Don’t blame GW for this, I was the one who decided to use their IP. They are well within their rights to allow or not allow any use of their property. I was hoping that since Turn Signals has always been an advocate of Games Workshop and their products that a mutually-beneficial arrangement could be made. That did not happen. If someone at GW wanted to make it happen tomorrow I would be all ears, but for now I’m moving on. They let me live for almost 6 years when they could have really shut me down any time they wanted to and for that I must thank them.
3: Kren and Frep are dead.
As anyone who has read Turn Signals knows, no one is really dead, no matter how badly they are obliterated, atomized, shredded, or vaporized. I have plans for them, and Cavendish, and everyone else, assuming I can get Games& off the ground.
Delta: I am getting Games& off the ground.
True. It was supposed to pick up where Turn Signals left off, but that has not happened yet. I am not a computer genius like Webmaster Larry and I still need to sit down with him and work out all of the web page, WordPress, and ComicPress bugs that I am currently staring at. I’m hoping I have entertained you enough that you will point your eyeballs at my next comic but I know that statistically I cannot bring ALL of you over to a new and different webcomic, but I hope that some of you will join me and Keenan, Eric, Klak-Nor, and Reg over at the game store. Keep checking here for updates that will direct you there shortly.
V: Turn Signals is going away:
Nope, it will be here as long as I keep paying Dreamhost, which I intend to do for the foreseeable future. So the archives will exist for as long as you wish to paw through them. I’m trying to figure out a way that ComicPress will randomize comics and show a new one every day, but I’m not sure it’s capable of that function yet.
Well, I’ve got some drawing and some computating to do… SEE YA!
