(Jon sez:)

Your Writer: Jon Kilgannon The current popular image of the hacker is a thin, handsome fellow with a distracted look, a very small vocabulary, and a long coat. Y'know, Neo from The Matrix. Real hackers never look like this. Many of them are pasty and unhealthy people who frankly look more like the Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons than like a movie star. Therefore we have Henri the mobster hacker, as seen above.

Mark assures me that the Russian agents who were tailing him have all been killed by a beautiful Canadian agent with a submachine gun and a heart of gold...or whatever the heck it is that kept him from getting everything done on our previous hiatus, so this hiatus is the real one.

Your Artist: Mark Sachs That story is of course complete rubbish, but that shouldn't stop you from dropping me a line if you do happen to be a beautiful Canadian agent with a submachine gun and a heart of gold. Just thought I'd better make that clear.

Anyway, yes, on this ambiguous note, we're going back on hiatus for a brief and precisely-scheduled while. As always, you can check my LiveJournal for the background if you are interested. I was going to set up a one-shot mailing list so people could be alerted via e-mail when the comic returns, but that doesn't appear to have been possible on the Internet for years now. Thanks, spammers! In the meantime, for that sci-fi webcomic-ness I wholeheartedly recommend Schlock Mercenary, Indavo, Zap!, NSTA, Nekko and Joruba, and last but far, far from least Starshift Crisis. (Edit: Oh, and how could I have forgotten Girl Genius?) See you soon.
