Hey, I'm not gonna lie to my readers!
If I intend to get shitfaced, I,ll do it, and still do the comic... later.
I never get it when webcomic authors try to justify their lateness with lame/boring excuses. If I had sex with 17 gorgeous women over the weekend, I'd say so as to why I'm late and dehydrated. If I just don't feel like it, then I,ll skip a day and just hand it in later. I'm on my own schedule here, and I know you guys will still come and read it, even if it is late... that is, if you like the comic.
