And I'm Off!
by Jason Shiga | 2016-08-01 18:25:16

It’s hard to describe what I’m feeling right now. Demon was my life for a very intense 2 year period and now it’s over. The comic has been taken down, the shigabooks store has been removed and I’m leaving for France in 10 days.

Closing this chapter in my comics career has been bittersweet. There’s a giant hole in my heart where Demon used to be. And now that I’ve had a taste of what it’s like to work on a webcomic, I’m a little nervous about returning to the world of traditional publishing. I don’t want to say too much but the project I’ll be working on in France is a secret 500 page interactive comic akin to Meanwhile. As much as I’m looking forward to starting something new, I confess that I’m going to miss the feedback, encouragement and camaraderie from YOOUUUU, my loyalest of readers.

Of course, this isn’t goodbye forever. I do hope to let you folks know about the progress of my new project, as well as give updates about my new life in France and news about the Demon volumes being released by First Second this year and next. I’m even hoping to launch another webcomic here in the not too distant future. Thanks once again to everybody and I’ll see you soon!
