The SuperFogeys 2015 Teaser and Special Announcements

Discussion (25) ¬

    Christmas came early, it seems. It’ll be torture waiting until next year for more SF, but good things come to those who wait. I’ll also admit to being bummed about the series ending, but I have faith that you guys will end it with a bang.

    Count me as one of the first in line when SF’s Patreon gets off the ground.

      I’ve always intended the series to end–and have had the ending in mind since almost the beginning–but it’s a bittersweet thing to actually be this close now.

      We will appreciate your future support.

      Looks like someone is missing.

        Where’s Speedy?

        Come on, he’s too stubborn to die!

    Huh. I can’t believe it. The naga wasn’t lying.
    The Hiatus bomb actually worked. o.0

      I confess to having no idea what any of that means.

    Hi Brock, any chance of more chapters being posted to Comixology, or books being made available to purchase? The Th3rdworld site has been down, pending ‘maintenance’ for years. I backed the Team Frog Studios Kickstarter hoping to buy copies of the books but of course that fell in a heap. Thanks, Bruce

    • Brock Heasley

      Bruce, I can’t tell you how sorry I am for how the Kickstarter has turned out. I still hold out hope that it will be resolved properly.

      The Th3rd World Store is back up and running, but the link just hasn’t been changed yet. You can go to this link right now to purchase the out-of-print SuperFogeys Vol. 1 (once they’re gone, they’re gone):

      Also, we just submitted the next two issues of SF to Comixology last week and we should see those up very, very soon now. I’ll be sure and do a post about it when it happens!

    Tears. Bittersweet is right. I just don’t want the ride to end!

      I hear you, Heidi. But all good things…

  6. devilflamejr

    As they say, all good things must come to an end. At least this time, the end isn’t coming until sometime after next year! I’m curious though, will you guys work on another comics-project after you end this one?

    • Brock Heasley
      Brock Heasley

      Great question. Marc and I haven’t discussed anything of that nature, and I doubt we will for a real long time. SuperFogeys is not coming to such a quick close that we even have to consider what’s next right now. The end is merely in sight.

      All that said, I’d certainly love to work with Marc again after this. We have a pretty easygoing working relationship at this point and he’s an incredible artist. I know how rare all that is.

      • devilflamejr

        I’ll keep my fingers crossed then :-) By the way, I suppose it’s a given, but please give a heads-up when the patreon site is up and running ;-)

        • Brock Heasley
          Brock Heasley

          Will most certainly do!

    To be honest, I read a lot of webcomics a chapter at a time, so the change to your update schedule I’m afraid to say that I’ll probably forget about Super-Fogies for a while, but then I’ll remember and probably read two chapters in one sitting or something. I have to say, it is one of my favourite webcomics, just because the story manages to be dark and interesting but not depressing.
    Speaking of not checking webcomics for months, I’d better go and read Genocide Man.

    • Brock Heasley

      We know something like this will happen–people are bound to forget about us–but hopefully we can make a big enough splash upon our return that people will get excited again. There’s GREAT stuff coming up.

  8. Sabrina Pandora

    You have a great strip here, guys. I came into it recently, but it is one of my favorite things- as funny gag strip that slowly evolved to reveal itself to be a far deeper and more interesting story than it set out to be, surprising readers and creators alike. And you are doing it very well.

    I’m sad to see you go on hiatus. I hope that your new publishing schedule works for you, although honestly, given your current problems and such, I’d strongly suggest you go in the other direction. Shotgun Shuffle was ready to fold, announced it, took the time to set up a Patron and now his job is doing his strip. It is worth looking into.

    Because you are doing good work here. And it isn’t going to get better on hiatus I suspect- but hey, whatta I know. Not like I’m lighting the webcomics world on fire either :)

    Good luck whatever you decide. But the level of support of your fans might just surprise you if you let them.

    • Brock Heasley

      Thank you for the kind words, Sabrina!

      If Patreon could actually pay as much as you say… yeah, that would be incredible. That would certainly solve a lot of problems. You’re giving me some motivation here. As soon as I get the outline for the future figured out and the next scripts going, that’s top priority. I can’t wait to see what happens.

  9. Slug

    Seconding what Sabrina Pandora said.

    Get thee to Patreon. I hate the change to the update schedule, but that’s what RSS is for, innit?

    Besides, I have yet to see a webcomic that updates regularly and quickly, and which does not suffer problems in either quality (of art & writing) or burnout of the writers/artists. Heck, even old salts like “Sluggy Freelance” have this problem. Mostly, I guess I’m saying, good luck, hopeful thoughts and prayers are being said, and Merry Christmas!

    Now get back to work, or tomorrow it’s one piece of coal for the fire, and no more!

    • Slug

      Dang, that last bit was supposed to include faux tags indicating Scrooge-iness!

    Sad to see SF stop for a while, but it’s life. Don’t know what lead you two up to this, but it happened to me too for whatever reasons. Mine were … I just can’t keep it up like that anymore. I’m just too exhausted and too stressed and have too much of real life and paying jobs to take care of. It’s sad, but I try not to let it get to me. My webcomic is on stop right now while I finish the next chapter or book too. Sadly, mine was designed to NEVER end, now I want it to. But unfinished? Meh… It is what it is. I need to move on to Christian comics too. I didn’t imagine that I’d only get this far on SuperMilo in 5 years. It’s taking far too long and is becoming less enjoyable. Hope it’s not that way for you, Brock. Or you, Marc. I’m just impatient, I think, and waiting a week or three – because real life is busy – to do the next comic strip? That KILLS me. And getting in trouble for neglecting real life because I’m busy writing and drawing? Yeah, that’s getting REAL old. Anyway, as you can see, it depresses me. But I know it won’t be like this forever or all the time. I had a good run. Will again one day. Anyway, just wanted you to know… If Th3rd World or you collects the entire SF in books or a book, I WILL buy that book. It doesn’t even need extras. And if SFO is collected… Count them as bought by me. Adios, my friends. Until next time.

    I know you guys are working on it, but could we kinda get a hint to as the completion or near completion?

      Just posted a blog to answer that very question! Including a return date!
