See you later, Sera.
Oh for fucks sake finally find a comic worth a damn and it’s already dead, the main character highly relatable, a world wrought with mystery, crestfallen filled with secrets lost to the ages. This comic could go on for years! Rivet hed, vamps, other witches, valentine, all 121 towers, too many untapped sources too many. Artistic style rare, dark and noir, but even and controlled, vibrant and alive! This is one thing I most hate bout online comics: the best end too soon and the shit ones continue. I love your comic, but I kind of hate you the creator honestly because you made a world of mystery and beauty and you choose to let it die.
Save this one, save your world, don’t let this go to waste.
He’s not letting it die. The next story isn’t going to revolve around Sera, though it will be in the same universe, from what I’ve gathered.
Also, this comic has been going for more than 10 years. You’re just late to the party.
Honestly, this comic has had the longest run of any webcomic series I’ve ever read.
sinfest is the only older one I’m aware of
Sluggy Freelance is probably the oldest webcomic to get its start on web browsers. It began in 1997, and it’s still going.
Dominic Deegan is right on up there too.
Having only recently discovered this, and now finishing it, I feel like a hole will be left where this use to be. I have definitely enjoy the ride and will definitely miss it. But to all the fans and to the author himself, I’d like to thank you it’s truly been a most enjoyable experience and it has also been the single best comic I’ve ever had the honor of reading. I will be immediately buying both volumes.
Last I checked, Sluggy Freelance (mad science, aliens, demons, all that fun stuff) was still posting; I got into it back in ’98 & it’d already been going a while. One of these days I *swear* I’m gonna get caught up…
I share in your desire for more s rose. that’s why I’m taking the route of fan fic.
I too have just found this comic a few days ago, and I wish there was a fourth book (or more!) focused around Sera ;-; I just want to give her a hug DX
GAH I found this three days ago and I’ve already read through the WHOLE THING TWICE GOD DAMMIT GIVE ME MOAR SERA PLZ. This is the most adorable character in the history of plots. I can’t even compare Ville from ARTD to her. I just… All I want is more. This comic started with one mood–depressing. You know what, though? It was the most perfect portrayal of depression I have ever seen. Next, during “Goodbye Crestfallen”, it turned to tension and stress. You know what? Most perfect stress portrayal I’ve ever seen. Next, the color exploded. “Break Your Stupid Heart” is the most emotional piece of art I’ve ever seen in my life. The meeting with Maddie, the meeting with Crawlsie, and then suddenly this is over. I know it lasted ten years, but it needed thirty. This is one of the most perfect pieces of art the world will ever see.
Thank you, Aaron, for shutting down my brain completely so this comic is all that I can think about.
Ever since I started using the hiveworks hub for all my comic needs, I’d always see HSS but never read it. One day I was like, “you know, I always see this but have never read it…. So I’m going to read it,” and now that I’ve finished, I’m a little sad. T’was a truly wonderful ride and plan on buying the books. Guess now I’ll start reading ELDRITCH! to satisfy this new craving HSS has given me.
