The hiatus is over! Thank you so much for being patient through Slightly Damned's longest break ever (a whole two months). And thank you very much to all the wonderful artists who helped me out by sending me their guest art! Be sure to check out their art galleries! I'm going to leave their submissions in the archive until the end of the month. As much as I love them, it's a little distracting for readers to come across a ton of filler as they're working their way through the archive.

Here's a post I made on Patreon regarding what I was up to while I was "gone", and what I plan to do moving forward in 2018. The important part is that Slightly Damned will continue to update once per Saturday!

Upcoming Conventions

Arizona Fur Con ~ Scottsdale, Arizona - November 17-19

Midwest Fur Fest ~ Rosemont, Illinois - November 30 - December 3

Further Confusion (come see my panel, "Exhibiting at Conventions"!) ~ San Jose, California - January 11-15

Bonus Guest Art

Unfortunately I was not able to upload Zionus' art during the hiatus, but here is their artwork of Rhea meeting one of their characters! (click the thumbnail to see a larger version)

You can check out more of their artwork here: https://silentone51.deviantart.com/

Also, look at this amazing Buwaro costume TimmCosplay made for Halloween!

You can see him and his girlfriend dressed up as Kazai and Kieri, as well as tons of photos of other awesome cosplays, in his gallery! https://timmcosplay.deviantart.com

October 7's whopping three-page guest comic was provided by my pal, Princessnapped! It's her interpretation of how the purple bird demon might have met that wind Angel they're so sweet on. Hey, you never know: it could be true...

If you like fluffy art, then waste no time checking out the rest of her art!: http://princessnapped.tumblr.com/

October 14's guest art was a three-part series of illustrations done by Sun! It really highlights how much the trio went through on that fateful day in St. Curtis. Super awesome work!

You can see more of their work on their tumblr! https://poo-ichi.tumblr.com/

October 21's guest art is a rad piece done by birb! I really like the lighting here. Don't you think this would make for a rad album cover or something? I bet it would be some sort of fantasy power metal.

September 2's filler art was provided by Devin Slack! Don't worry, Kieri, this is all just pretend, right? Right??

Check out more of Devin's art at http://judasb3tr4yer.deviantart.com/

8/8September 9's art was provided by Arkaniwulff! They said they took inspiration from a Gundam 0079 poster for this, since I goofed on a Gundam Wing poster a while ago. I should do stuff like that more often!

You can find more of their work here: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/kojikogel/

September 16's art was provided by the unflappable Wingu! Having characters lie down in grass together is such a classic composition; I should try it out myself sometime! Thanks for the cute art, Wingu!

September 23's art was provided by Stront! Sakido's got kind of a rad Osamu Tezuka feeling to her in this picture they did, and I absolutely love it. Thanks for the awesome art, Stront!

Be sure to check out Stront's webcomic, Heros of Thantopolis! I love it, so you probably will, too! http://heroesofthantopolis.com

September 30's art was made by Lady Brightcynder! Wow, it looks like Kieri has her work cut out for her. I would love to play a Mega Man mod like this, but would Kieri be able to use the Demons' powers somehow? Well, anyway, I think this piece is great. Thanks for all your support and the great art, Lady Brightcynder!

I am taking a break from Slightly Damned pages in September! And maybe October. I'm not sure yet. Anyway, there will definitely not be any new vote incentives or page updates in September! (The comic will update normally throughout August. The last page before the break is #835.)

"Oh, have a nice vacation!"

I'm not going on vacation! I'm simply not going to work on Slightly Damned pages or vote incentives for a month or two. Instead, I'm going to do any combination of the following: working on The Junk Hyenas Diner, The Legend of Buwaro: Soprano of Time, my 151 Pokemon challenge, new Kickstarter campaign to reprint Slightly Damned books, fixing up outdated parts of the Slightly Damned website. I'll also be helping some close friends of mine with moving.

I'm not sure how much I can actually get done in a month or two since I intend to fulfill every Patreon reward EXCEPT specifically Slightly Damned comic pages and vote incentives. I just know that I'm going to keep busy! So it's not a vacation! And I'm not going anywhere, so you can keep up with what I'm doing on all my usual social media sites.

"But I only support you on Patreon because I want Slightly Damned comics! I'm removing my pledge!"

Hey, that's perfectly understandable and you don't have to justify your decision to me. This and any other time, I welcome you to adjust or remove your pledge anytime you want. But in my defense, my Patreon is for supporting ME, and all my projects; not just Slightly Damned. But FYI: pledging just $1 to an artist's Patreon is a huge help emotionally as well as financially-- it affects the way that fees are calculated and deducted. Instead of removing your pledge entirely, why not just reduce it to $1 for a while?

"So... do you want guest comics/art?"

YES! I would love guest comics and art to put up each Saturday that I'm "off" of making SD comics!

If you would like your guest comic or art to be featured here, please email it to chu [at] raizap.com! Please include your art, your preferred name and pronoun, and a link back to your website/art account/other work!

If you send it any other way, I can't guarantee that I'll be able to keep track of it (since I manage a lot of different accounts). Also, depending on how many I receive, I can't guarantee that all of them will be featured. Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but... either way, I'll share what I get the best I can.

EDIT: I've got enough guest art to tide me over until I start updating again in November. Thank you all for your contributions!

Thank you all for your patience and support!
