the saga of fred lactus

The Fathers Become The Sons

At long last, the exciting conclusion to the Saga of Fred Lactus is here! 

I've been working on this issue for over a year now and Fred has been a part of my life for much longer than that. It's tremendously rewarding to be able to complete the multi-part story I started years ago. A big thanks goes out to all the fans who have followed the story for as long as it's taken to reach the end.

So, I may be finished with Fred Lactus, but Rock of Pages is not over yet. I've got three more issues planned before wrapping the series, so stay tuned! Also, I think I've officially outgrown 3.0, so a redesign is in the near future.

I think I'm going to go take a nap first.

Through a Glass, Ugly

For those of you wondering what I've been up to, this may answer your question. The Saga of Fred Lactus Chapter 5 is now online! So check it out here, and be sure to read the story so far here if you need to get caught up.

I've spent a lot of time on this one and I hope you guys can dig it. Once I finish up Rock of Pages, I've got something planned that will allow me to update more regularly. For now, just bear with me. I may disappear for awhile again, but don't worry. This isn't the end.*

*Spoiler Alert

A Special Holiday Announcement

Greetings People of Earth.

All of my fans have been up in arms about having to wait two months for a Rock of Pages update, and both of them want to know what's going on. Well, the bad news is you're going to have to wait just a little longer. 

I recently took on a new full time job that keeps me occupied 40 hours a week. As much as I love the flexible schedule of freelancing, it just wasn't enough to pay the bills and I couldn't pass up this opportunity. That being said, I'm still 100% committed to keeping this comic going. Everything's just taking a little longer these days.

Also, since last issue, I've been working on a lot of stuff that doesn't necessitate updating the website. First off, I made my own font, which makes lettering way easier, and it looks way better. It's going to debut in a new Rock of Pages #0 issue, which is the other thing that's been keeping me busy. This is going to be available in print as part of my 2012 convention exclusive. While I don't have my convention schedule finalized yet, I expect it to premier at the Gem City Comic Con, on March 31.

Coming up next for me is the Saga of Fred Lactus: Chapter 5. The Lactus stuff always seems to take more time , so I imagine it'll be a couple months before it's up here. Thanks for your patience.

Finally, I'd like to extend my gratitude to everyone who's visited the site this year. Your feedback and support really make it all worthwhile and I hope you each have an awesome holiday season. This year's been great for me and I hope it only gets better in 2012!

Exposition Ahoy!

The Sad Skater has returned! Check out The Saga of Fred Lactus Chapter 4 here. And while you're at it, you should probably catch up on the story so far by going through everything here.

This issue is a milestone for a couple of reasons. First, weighing in at 30 pages, it's the longest issue thus far. And i'm usually happiest with the most recent one I finish, so there's that. But also it means I'm now more than halfway done with Fred's Saga. It's definitely a weird feeling to now be approaching the final act of my time-traveling epic. Don't think I'm winding down though. In a lot of ways I'm still just getting warmed up. There's plenty of crazy surprises still to come.

Chapter 5 will be issue #18. Check back next for more Xopher-centric adventures.

The Sad Skater Returns!

Issue #9 is up! Due to popular demand, the second chapter of The Saga of Fred Lactus has arrived. I'd recommend catching up on the first chapter here, then heading over to the next one here

Thanks to everyone for your continued support and interest. Hopefully I'll be able to get the next few issues without too much delay.
