Greetings everyone, it's Arven here!
I hope everything is going fine. As for me, I'm currently stuck with University exams, and although busy, I still manage to keep the pace of the comics constant.
However, that sadly cannot be said for the months to come.
Don't worry, nothing bad has happened, nay I daresay the contrary. My University selected me and 5 more students for a period of studies outside of Italy, where we will be able to work on our thesis.
Specifically, we will be staying at the University of Nottingham, Great Britain, for roughly four months, from the beginning of July to around mid November
While absolutely honoured of this chance I was given, I'm also very nervous. I've never be far from home for such a long time.
And along with all the general preparations that such a journey might require, came the problem of comic pages. Right from the get-go, I absolutely refused to leave you guys pageless for four months
XD However, not knowing whether I'd find a scanner, or even just the practical time to draw pages once I'm there, this crazy me had the insane idea of preparing comic pages in advance
, to post once I'm abroad. Yeah, extra Chakra and Africa pages. They're being produced at this very moment, and they will be posted during my stay at Nottingham.
The one issue is that, Chakra currently uploads 4 pages per month, Africa uploads 2. That's 6 pages every month, multiplied by roughly 5 months, it gives around 30 extra pages for me to work on. You can understand that, what with exams and private life, that's just too much for me to handle XD I drew a good handful, but that sadly won't be enough to cover the updates for those months at the current pace
For this reason, I came up with the unavoidable solution: the pace of the comics has to be slowed down a little, at least for the 5 months during which I'll be away. From the beginning July to the end of November, Chakra will be uploaded every other Saturday instead of every week, whereas Africa will no longer be on Wednesday, but on Saturday as well, specifically the Saturday in which I don't upload Chakra
. This way, pages of Chakra and Africa will alternate on Saturdays so that you guys still have one comic page every week.
So the main change was basically for Chakra, since Africa will be every other week, as always, only on a different day.
I know, this may look and sound confusing, but no worries, it's a lot easier than it seems
What you guys end up losing is two Chakra pages a month.
But no worries, this won't be forever
! Starting from December, the pages will be posted with the good ol' schedule again
, and we'll all live happily ever after.
This new schedule is solely for the months I won't be in Italy.And if I do manage to find a way to actually post more pages, then by all means I absolutely will
! But for now, let's keep this change valid
On another note, I'm absolutely thrilled to leave in July. I don't know the exact day of my departure just yet, but as I do get to know it, I'll keep you guys informed! And if anyone of you happens to hover around Nottingham during my stay period, feel free to come and say hi!
Thank you a lot for reading, and I hope you understand!
