After being hit by a car a few months ago, things have been very strange for Max. Not only can he see ghosts, but one in particular claims to have saved him from death! But there are reasons why ghosts are not allowed to save humans.
Updates every other Tuesday (with occasional doubled up updates for special events)
Alright this is gonna be hard to say, especially days away from an anniversary, but the writing's on the wall
Guardian Ghost is dead
I sincerely appreciate all of you for sticking around this long in anticipation for an end to the story, but all of my passion for it is completely gone, like even writing a summary is a huge feat (not that I've given up on it entirely mind you, but it's not gonna appear for a good long while at the very least)
Once Fighting Dreamers is done and I have some time to breathe, maybe I'll revisit the story and try and redo it. The characters themselves were great, it was the plot that killed it, and I'd like to revisit the idea once I have way more comic and storytelling experience under my belt.
I cannot stress enough how appreciative I am of all of your support, but I think this is the best option. Thanks so much for reading and I hope you check out FD, or just hang around until I revive Guardian Ghost in the very distant future
I love you guys, see you soon ^u^;

Guardian Ghost is going to go on hiatus for a bit
It's plot lost direction multiple times over, and I need some time to figure out if I want to keep going with it or just summarize the rest of what I have planned in a picture storybook style and end it that way, a bit of a cop-out but at least it'll be done in some manner.
Getting back to GG just gets more and more tedious each time and I feel like I need to back off from it for a while in order to get back on track with it, even if that track means ending it in a lackluster way
I'll still be updating Fighting Dreamers regularly cause I actually know where to go with it, maybe some skips here and there while I figure out New Job stuff.
I'll keep you guys updated as things progress, and as always, thanks for reading ^u^;

I seem to have worked myself into a bit of a burnout, a combination of overestimating how much I could handle during a buffer (and all of it slamming into my face when it ran out) and also CT Gamer Con is coming up next month (March 24-25th) and I'm selling at that so I'm just getting bits of hyperfocus on actually getting projects done
Basically I'll try my best to update but if updates get skipped that's why, sorry guys ^-^;

I'm gonna have to skip the Guardian Ghost update this week, and carry it over or maybe just go on hiatus for both series. All this prep for Terrificon and having to plow through longer work shifts is destroying my creative drive and my page development is suffering more than usual.
I'd rather wait until I can actually focus on getting a more coherent narrative going (rather than going a page at a time at weekly intervals, which messes things up) and that might not be until after the con. And forcing myself to get pages done when my mind is so scattered is what messed up CH7 last time, and I really don't want to end up in a similar scenario this time.
I'm really sorry, I'm just incredibly unfocused and conflicted this month. It'll blow over eventually but until then updates are gonna be weird.
As always I will let you guys know of any developments.

Since I have a con coming up in August, and I'm also in the process of drawing out a prettier version of Fighting Dreamers to pitch to some comic company in the near future, I'll be dropping Guardian Ghost down to Every Other Tuesday until I've caught up with the workload.
Fighting Dreamers should be up the opposite Wednesday to Guardian Ghost's updates, so there will at least be a comic on a weekly basis for those of you that follow both. (at least until CH3 ends but that's a process in itself so that will be a bit)
Thanks for reading, thanks again for the guest art, and I'll give you a heads up if things change around drastically.
In the meantime, if you're in the Connecticut area August 18th-20th, check out my booth at Terrificon! It's in Mohegan Sun Casino and they're still open for tickets! http://www.terrificon.com/comic-con-tickets.html
(once I've rested my wrist a bit I'll get right on drawing some quick stuff for the guest artists, just message me on Smackjeeves/Tumblr/Discord/Skype/Tapastic/My Email if you participated and have a character you want a quick drawing of!)

I've been going crazy with page making these past two days, and I seem to have the page making times balanced with work now, so the weekly updates will resume starting with the update on FEBRUARY 2ND

So after working on the page for the next update day, I got excited with the way I was coloring it and decided HEY I COULD PROBABLY REDRAW THE FIRST COUPLE CHAPTERS WITH THIS
That turned into these 10 pages
Now new readers can see what the art turns into right from the start (rather than seeing the art I started with back in 2012) and current ones can see another spin on Max's revival!
I hope you guys enjoy it :D

I got up to Page 12 retexted and cleaned up for Guardian Ghost Chapter 5! And since I only need to do up to page 25, and I can skip over the pages without actual talking, we're bound to get this done and print ready before GG's 3 year anniversary this Monday :D
And not to worry, I kinda faltered on last week's update, I'll have this week's ready to go by Tuesday, and something awesome planned for the anniversary :D
