I’m pretty depressed tonight. Maybe it’s ’cause I’ve been sick with a head cold for days, maybe it’s ’cause I just got done watching the Christmas special for the Ricky Gervais show Extras. Who knows?

Anyway, I’ve been rather inconsistant in my updates lately and I owe you an explanation. Many of you know that my wife has recently had a Kidney and Pancreas transplant. Although It’s gone very well, we’ve had a few setbacks in recent weeks. The good news is that it seems we are past the worst of it now, but it hasn’t been easy. So, I’ve been focusing most of my attention on my family and not my comic. When I’ve felt up to it, when I’ve had something funny or intriguing to present I draw a comic. When I’m busy or I don’t feel very funny, I let the updates slide.

No worries though. As I said, things are starting to look up and I plan to return to consistant and timely updates soon enough. Plus, I’ve got a book I’ve been promising you all in the works and I am looking forward to getting that put together as well.

Thanks again for your support and your understanding! I appreciate you all!

    Dude, relax. Hasn’t Robot been on the beach for like, how many hundred years? We can wait a few weeks. (well, I can, and I’ll smack down anybody who fidgets too much while waiting, okay?) Two replacement organs are a big deal. You just take care of your patient and we’ll be patient. (And if any more organs are required, offer up Larry the Gull as a donor)

    Jen and Gary in your corner! Looking forward to your book, but take good care of your family first. Hang in there!

    Well, at least you’ll have some new ideas when things are less hectic/stressed – like maybe the girl gets sick and robot has noidea how to fix (change the oil?, tighten up the springs?, do a reboot on the system?).
    You Da MAN!

    No problem Matt! We love your characters and whenever they appear online they make us happy anyway. Yours is a more than valid reason for missing updates. Our family is a treasure and we’re supporting you when you need to address your attention towards them. All the best to you and your family. And don’t you worry one bit!
