Over the years I’ve seen entirely too many webcomics succumb to hiatus. Fortunately, two comics I rather enjoy have emerged from those misty shores and resumed updates once more. After a two month break (due to cartoonist Gina Biggs’ going on maternity leave), the high school relationship comic Red String has resumed updates again. For the time being, Biggs will be updating on Mondays; given the vagaries of young infants, I’m glad to see that Biggs isn’t overextending herself. While I would love to see more updates of Red String, I’d rather see reliable updates than a constant struggle to get more done than is feasible.
A second comic I’ve been looking forward to is Aaron Alexovich’s Heart Shaped Skull (or Serenity Rose 3: Break Your Stupid Heart), a rather enjoyable comic about a twenty-something witch coping with the fame of being one of only five American witches (in that there are only 57 witches in the world – and these witches have the ability to alter reality… and for their very dreams to take life). After two years, HSS has resumed updates; I must admit I rather enjoyed today’s strip, which basically summed up the previous two storylines for both new readers who’ve not yet perused the comic’s archives, and older readers who might need a quick refresher.
Welcome back, Gina Biggs and Aaron Alexovich. Both of your comics have been missed.
