So about those changes I mentioned... I was referring to deleting everything. Not everything everything, since Chapter 1 is still here. I'm only starting over with Chapter 2.

Q: Why did you delete the old Chapter 2?
A: I hate it. I started out by trying to edit the remaining pages in the chapter so that I'd like it more, but it didn't really work.

Q: I don't like this decision.
A: Sorry. It wasn't an easy decision. I put a lot of time into those pages. There were 126 of them, so of course scrapping it all hurts me a lot. However, it would be worse to keep posting a badly written chapter that I'm not proud of. I'm going to miss all the comments that were on them.

Q: A REBOOT? WHAT ABOUT THE TIMMIES?!
A: They'll be back. All the characters introduced in the old Ch2 will return at some point. I'm changing the art style a little bit too. Just a lil.

Side note, the art in Ch1 disgusts me. But I won't delete it, because visuals are easier for me to fix than writing. I started quietly revising some of the Ch1 pages a while ago, and I'll continue to do that whenever I have time.

    Woah ok. This is pretty big- that's over a year of pages. Interested to see how you improve on chapter 2's writing.

    How is the update schedule going to work from here on out?

    The main thing I learned from the old stuff is I introduced way too many things in one story arc. So I'll try to not do that with this.

    Still doing Tuesdays and Thursdays. My buffer's nonexistent but I'm on summer break so I have time to build it back up.

    Well, I was wrestling with a similar decision a while ago as I believe you know. So I won't comment as to your reasoning. What I learned from that was to just go with my gut feeling regarding what was right for MY comic. And I firmly believe that's what everyone should do with theirs. Regardless of what conclusions I reached, they were right for me, but in the end it's an individual choice. And I'm glad if you're doing what feels right!

    I will personally miss those old pages, but knowing what I know about your work and the potential of your story and characters (I fell in love with them early on). I also find myself equally excited for what's to come. I am definitely loving this cover too!

    Thanks :)

    When I was still on the fence, I considered how you and other webcomic authors I follow have faced similar decisions with reboots or revisions. Everybody's gone about it differently, so I suppose it really is a gut instinct type of thing.

    Though I loved the pages you originally did I'm sure I will enjoy reading your new pages. I know I've done similar things in the past.

    Love this page too.

    As much as I'm going to miss the pages, I'm glad you thought it was for the better. Continue doing great work, and can I have an orange Timmy? :3

    Hey, I'm back!

    Oh wow, I knew I was missing something when I came back to read it. I'm liking the new Chapter 2.

    About the art in chapter 1, I have the same issue with the first two chapters of Empty Hallways, and I hate Chapter 1 Page 3 most of all. I also have started to quietly revise the art in the older pages, but I'm doing it at a very slow pace, so it'll take a while before any changes show up.

    I think it's far more important to upload new pages than to work on old ones, so I only mess with old pages a litte bit after finishing a new one.

    Thanks! I agree, I'm prioritizing new pages over revisions. It's a struggle

    Also, good to see you and your comic back! :D
