Things Didn't get Better
by Meghasissues

So, I've returned to explain myself a little bit and try to figure out where I'm going from here. So some people may have noticed that my comic started struggling and then completely stopped a couple of years ago. There's a long story behind that but here's the short version. I was in the hospital for a long time and when I got out I didn't really know what to do with myself. I still don't. I worked hard on this comic and on so many other things and nothing has really panned out. I tried taking time off to take care of myself. I tried working on other projects that didn't feel as hated. I tried finding something that felt like I was doing something instead of just throwing things out into the ether and hoping that somehow someone would like them. None of that really worked. The whole time though I kept telling myself that I'd pick this back up when I felt better.

That hasn't happened yet.

I know that's not something you want to hear or know about some online weirdo who writes a comic that sometimes manages to be funny. Sometimes things don't get better and people can't keep making things when everything feels useless. We're all human. It happens. I know I'm not the only person that this has happened to. I'm not trying to make excuses for me dropping off the face of the planet or being bad at this. I know how terrible I am. I'm just trying to make a concious effort to be better.

So yeah, the comic stopped because I was waiting for things to get better. They didn't. I'm tired of waiting. I'm going to make things better for myself.

 

Damn Hipsters will be returning in 2017.

So those of you that know me from my career as a mini comic artist will know about my obsession with They Might Be Giants. Today they posted up a link to a blog that is so mindbogglingly fantastic that I wish I had thought of it first. It's called They Might Be Hipsters and uses lyrics from TMBG songs set over unrelated pictures to create some of the greatest hipster images known to man.

I'm really tempted to finish up issue two of Dr Worm now and put some hipsterisms in it just to give a shout out to the blog.

Hate
by Meghasissues

Ok guys I'm gonna have to get real for a second here.

To the wonderful people that post up hate or send me emails telling me how much I suck without leaving your name or a way to respond back. 

I would like to thank you for this.

 

Yeah the internet is a great way to pick on people anonymously  so you're under no threat of being called out yourself but here's the thing as much as you say my comic sucks or I don't know what I'm writing about at least I'm putting something out there. I do this comic once a week as a way to keep my name out there and laugh at the stuff that annoys me. A lot of my comics are based off of actual quotes I overhear in hipster bars in Savannah so when I constantly get mail and comments telling me I know nothing about the scene and I shouldn't make fun of it, I have to giggle a little. I never claimed to be a hipster or know anything about it and most of these things that people are saying are me being uninformed about hipsters are said by hipsters themselves. I just clean it up and put it into comic form. If you don't get the jokes or don't like them don't read it. It's as simple as that. I'm not going to take down your hate but I'm not going to get angry at yell at you for it either. I'm just going to laugh it off.

To go back to me putting up the persona of being a sarcastic asshat for a second here the more you hate my comic the more indie cred you give me. It kinda makes me the most hipster webcomic on the net cause if anyone liked me I'd be mainstream.

 

Thank you <3

Hey guys,

Check the youtube channel for all the news and coming updates to the site.

For those of you wondering what the new donation button is for it's kinda so I can afford to do this. Everytime $20 gets donated there will be an extra comic uploaded that week. It sucks that I need to do this but I'm running two comics and still going to school so I have to start finding ways to make this into a job so I'm not losing money and killing myself from over work at the same time.
