Happy Birthday to all those people who's birthdays I missed
You know I was totally going to post one of those pity "Gosh guys I dunno what I want do with the comic and I don't know whether or not I'm coming back and augh do you guys even like this thing that's so oollld" but then I just made a comic. I don't even know why I stopped. It was still fun, I didn't forget how to do anything, and the only reason why it's up so late in the day is because I didn't have time to upload before class.

Why did I stop doing this again? Summer courses and jobs basically. I started writing terrible fanfiction, that was fun for a bit. But I never took this page off my "morning links" so I saw it every morning. I just sorta stared at it. Questioned whether or not I wanted to do it multiple times. That happened a lot. And then I just sorta...started again today. Without reason. I just did. And it felt good.

I'm not going to make any more promises about my schedule anymore. I love this comic and love everything about its history, characters, and of course you guys, so I feel bad when I say "I'm gonna keep updating!" and then just stop. So update schedule is pretty much whenever, if you guys still read it anyway. Do people still read sprite comics? I dunno. I kind of stopped. I want to get back into that, they're fun.

So that's that. Oh! And remember that little project thing? It was going to be a little Dialogue thing I'd do where I'd take questions from you guys and they'd get answered in the voices of the characters. There's one example up now that shows what I mean. I don't have all the characters up at the moment but if anyone's actually interested feel free to send me questions in the comments and I'll get 'em answered provided they're to the characters and not me. If they're to me I'll just answer 'em here.

Thanks for reading! I hope your other comics don't have update schedules as bad as mine. Or Z's. Her update schedule is better than mine currently but it's still pretty funny.

Ultimate Yoshi, September 17th, 2014, 7:59 pm

I'm gonna predict that this next floor is going to involve some sort of race.

Luigi_96, September 17th, 2014, 9:16 pm

Link was just trying to be a gentleman... Dangit Zelda.

witswithme, September 17th, 2014, 9:36 pm

...Sure enough.
Mac and PC aren't here. And neither is Luigi!

And then the party is attacked by giant floating chins.

It looks like they found the Q room. *cookie to whoever gets that reference*

Joemon8, September 18th, 2014, 7:27 pm

Oh my lovely <3 <3 I have missed you so!
I'm so glad to see this back on the recently updated list ^-^
I'll do my best to contain myself in between updates, I can't guarantee anything though ;P

Extremmefan, September 19th, 2014, 5:45 am

No, Zelda! Link didn't try to look up your dress...

Megamean09, September 20th, 2014, 6:32 am

Well, I'm just glad you're keeping it going. I stopped keeping up with Smackjeeves during one of the many periods where I had to go many months without home internet two years ago, and when I got back, a number had been cancelled. Only four on my bookmarks were left.

And I don't know about other people, but I love sprite comics. Sprite comics are amazing. Why people would DRAWN fan comics when they could use sprites, I'll never know.

Extremmefan, September 21st, 2014, 4:45 am

@Megamean09: I'll never understand them either.

Cheese (Guest), October 10th, 2014, 5:36 pm

@Afrohawkman: As proffesor oak would say your doing a fine job shitlord, just replace shitlord with afrohawkman or amazing cool guy they are both pretty equel.

Gabuts, October 15th, 2014, 6:40 pm

Yes! YES!!

Extremmefan, November 2nd, 2014, 10:33 am

@Afrohawkman: Oh right... Q&A comic for Adding Zero and After Subtract.

somebodyoutthere (Guest), November 13th, 2014, 8:39 pm

alex (Guest), December 11th, 2014, 12:24 am

I breezed through after subtract in 2 days and I can't wait for the next part of this one! When's it coming? :)

6 months later...

longtimefan (Guest), March 17th, 2015, 2:30 pm

This is practically the last stand for sprite comics. Seriously! BnG ended years ago, Zelda comic gave up, most of the more hillarious ones gave up. Now adding zero has given up too?

I'd say this would totally suck if it werent for this place:

Seriously! We're down to this and that! =O

Mopwop, March 23rd, 2015, 7:52 am


longtimefan (Guest), March 24th, 2015, 2:23 pm

AGGGH!!! AGGGGG!! THis is like holding your breath for a year.

virtualboy2558, April 16th, 2015, 4:36 pm

You know... I've seen this comic not getting a lot of updates for quite some time, and it feels like it gets dragged out some more even after some progress. And I hate to see people just sitting around day after day with no knowing when the next update will be.

If you really want to keep working on the comic, Afrohawkman, I really have no power of stopping you... but if you feel like you this is more of a chore than a hobby, you could just tell us.

I've seen great comics like this end up left in the dust with no explanation given... other than figuring their creators don't have any joy or motivation left to work on them, or just don't have the time anymore.

But it's entirely up to you with what you want to do here, of course... just thought that it'd be better to get some closure than kept in the dark for a long time.

Afrohawkman, April 17th, 2015, 2:05 am

You know, to be completely honest, I don't have a response for you. Truthfully speaking, I would like to do it again but I don't know where I'd go with it or whether or not I should evolve into some other passion. I wonder whether or not I really want to do it or if I'm only doing it out of obligation to finish it. It's hard to tell because I have plenty of ideas, I just don't really know when I want to put those ideas to fruition.

I'm also just about to graduate and I'm dealing with writing a Master's Thesis which is a LOT of time haha. That and a few other identity things that have been taking up a lot of time. I don't know. If I ever get into it again I know I want to build up a big ass buffer to avoid these giant ass stops but I just...don't know. Sometimes I think I kind of want to start over, but still work with the same characters, y'know? I love this particular story, maybe not exactly where I went with it, but the story itself I enjoy and I love the characters.

I'll keep in touch as I see people actually check these pages more frequently than I thought. I could upload a "hey how's it going" page if you'd like a more detailed description on what's going on right now. And yes, I do check this page every day as it's on my morning coffee so I see the comments all the time.

Shrooms (Guest), June 15th, 2016, 2:31 am

Rip Webcomic 420BC - 2014
Just randomly remembered this webcomic, 2 years later. Kind of disappointing that it never ended or revealed the magic person

Shrooms (Guest), June 15th, 2016, 2:32 am

Tru lmao
@Super Bluey: Yeah I was very surprised by those ads as well
I just randomly remembered this comic today lol

Shrooms (Guest), June 15th, 2016, 2:35 am

@Afrohawkman: What was your degree in exactly? Did you find work with it?

Super Bluey, September 8th, 2016, 9:40 pm

So I came here to get a quick shortcut to The After Subtract(too lazy to google it) to re-read it and oh the layout is fixed.

Snivy1234 (Guest), October 20th, 2016, 4:08 pm

Sorry, but I really want the update. I understand if you have some important stuff but it's been 2 years

Guest, March 31st, 2017, 2:32 pm

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not the no updates for three years! Anything but the no updates for three years!

BaconBub, September 17th, 2017, 2:13 pm

we are in great danger...
it is 9/17, in the year 2017. If afrohawkman does not update again, the world will end as we know it. Also, kirby will eat his computer again.

Nova Ozuka, October 15th, 2017, 9:49 pm

And I finally caught up, though that's kiund of pointless if this never gets updated again. Reading some of the comments here, I can understand why updating is so hard. I almost never seem to get my own projects finished depending how long they are.

god (Guest), February 23rd, 2018, 3:49 pm

omae wa mou shindeiru

JovanW, March 3rd, 2019, 3:43 pm

Well, here I am...
Well, I managed to make a long and uneasy journey to notice this comic’s prequel, The After Subtract. Reading through was was really enjoyable and entertaining. I somehow noticed this sequel the same day I noticed the prequel, but see that this haven’t updated since 2014 and we hadn’t heard from Afro since 2015.
So what does this mean? Is this really dead and discontinued? Is it very unlikely that Afro would get back in this? I’m going to have to admit that it I would really appreciate it a lot if this comes back since it looking really good and would not like to be left like that.
It been bad enough when I noticed the Two Evil Scientists, it got stopped at almost 2,000 pages for some unspecified reason after it ran for nearly 7 years and we hadn’t heard from the creator since then. It had a lot of popularity and this has it too. It’s pretty hard these days to accept it when something you really enjoy gets stopped for some reason. I mean, I do see that some life issues get in the way.
I know it’s not always polite to convince someone to keep going, but is there anything I could (or we) do to reach out to Afro that would be necessary? You know, it’s good to never give up.
I will conclude this to say, thank you Afro for your hard work and excellent creativity in making the comics and successfully completing the prequel at least. I don’t know, but I wish there would be some way to make things better here.
