104 – It Finale Happenedon May 6, 2013 at 12:01 am
[Larom Lancaster] …You’re quoting something again, aren’t you?
It’s true; this, the two-year anniversary of Shark’s arrival, is the final regularly-scheduled update of Poor Shark. Without even mentioning all of the different trips I have planned this summer, I’m heading off to college in a couple of months to get a Master’s degree, and I likely won’t have my scanner, the right software, or the time to reliably keep producing comics. For the past two years, I’ve been making this comic once a week without ever skipping an update, or without ever being even a second late. I’m really proud of that–even some of the webcomic artists that I most respect can’t claim they’ve never had a delayed update.
Anyway, I say “regularly-scheduled” because there’s still a chance I’ll have more content up here at a later date. There are a few scripts I’ve had planned since Shark’s early days that I just didn’t feel I could do justice with my drawing abilities, or that they would have taken too long to do. If I ever drop my standards a little, it’s possible I can still post some pencil sketches of Shark’s escapades in the future. In addition to all of that, I plan to use what little extra time I have while at graduate school to work on a game I’ve codenamed Project Crissaegrim. (Given that my previous project was named Solais, I guess I’m codenaming my projects after Castlevania weapons now. This is a thing. I’m running with it.) Once Crissaegrim takes off, I’ll be sure to post updates here or on a sister site regarding its progress and how to join in and play it.
Anyway, it’s been a blast to bring Shark’s antics to you over the past two years, and I want to extend a big “thank you” to everyone who has been a reader of my comic, past, present, or future. I appreciate all the support, and I hope you’ve enjoyed Poor Shark as much as I have!
Yay for super passwords.
Thanks for the timely updates, devotion to it, and comedy for the past couple years. I think nobody will mind being a lil’ patient for anything else to come out from you. 😀
It was a good run! I don’t read very many webcomics, but PS is one of the only two that I check on a regular basis (the other being xkcd). Good luck with your future projects and education!
*Cough*… Now that it’s all over, I have a confession to make. There’s something I have to get off my chest. It’s been building up inside me for far too long.
I… I always preferred pointy-nose Shark.
THERE! I SAID IT.
I hope we can still be friends.
There’s something to be said for pointy-nose Shark. A few people seemed to like him better. I…I GUESS we can still be friends.
(xkcd is a good alternate comic but if you ever want more I can totes recommend some)
Just wanted to shout out that I’ve really enjoyed your comic!!!! Had me busy for 5 hours straight once.
Thanks PandaPenguin! I’m glad you enjoyed it! =)
I like roundy nosed shark! But minecraft shark is a close second.
I miss poor shark 🙁
I miss making it too, but I don’t think I’d ever have time now. 🙁 (But thanks for thinking of Poor ol’ Shark.)
