It's been a long, long time since I've stopped by these forums, so I figured this thread was as good a place as any to say hello again.

So hi!

I've spent the last two years getting a credential and a job as a high school teacher (somehow I got roped into teaching drama even though I've never even taken an acting class before), so that, combined with the fact that our artist dropped off the face of the Earth, reappeared, asked to take a year off, completed one strip after that year was up, then disappeared again permanently, Steel Salvation has been on the shelf for pretty much that whole time.

The good news is that I make a half decent drama teacher (we just sold out our production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), AND we all decided to take the plunge and hire a new artist, so Steel Salvation is back in business!

Our new artist, Kenan Halilovic, is super professional, impeccably on time, and he can mimic our old artist's style while adding his own twist to it. Plus, he's *really* good with backgrounds and scale, which is something I've always wanted for our comic. I'd add a sample of our newest strips, but the attachment upload thingy doesn't seem to be cooperating, so here's a link to our latest completed, uploaded strip. He gets even better from here: ... a2-34.html

That's quite a harrowing tail. Glad to hear you're still making comics though!

Hey, Rhys here. You all probably don't remember me (except for yeahduff, who I harrass on Facebook) but we had a comic here for a spell in 2006 (Forces of Good and Evil). I buzzed around the forums a bit before we decided to take our comic to our own hosting. I am still not sure whether that was a mistake. Anyway, we have been at the comic mostly since then, with a few punctuated hiatuses. Our current story arc is a techno-fantasy crossover tail co-starring Cortland (our whole comic is set in 2005, so our this story actually slides into the middle of Cortland's! It was hella fun to plot out)

Other than that, there is personal stuff that won't mean anything.
I have been thinking about the old days recently, and then suddenly remembered the password, so i thought i would check stuff out.

Via con Dios!

Wow, I miss you guys. The last time I saw many of you was about a decade ago in St. Louis. Since then, I got married and had a couple kids (Hannah, who just turned 6, and Aaron who's 3). I'm still living in Omaha and enjoying every minute of it. I have a blog to update the world on my boring life. Comic Genesis is in it, of course, if you want to look back at some our collective memories together. I also have all the photos from our meetups on my Flickr account. Internet is forever.

And I'm still drawing a comic called Out at Five, which gets updated on occasion. And I'm still a Cornstalker. Dammit.
