This is not to say that The Chronicles of Loth is dead. I spent a lot of time working on this. It's just not going to be continued in the comic format.

Thank you everyone for your kind words, and sorry for my comment, I know now it was in very poor taste. I’ve been self-deprecating for some twenty years now, it’s a hard habit to break. I do have a comic I’ve been working on, it’s just that I’ve been working on it for four months now and I haven’t even finished one page, so I didn’t want to make any promises since my work schedule is erratic and I still might back out and do a different comic idea. Just please bare with me and forgive me for being an insensitive ass…



…damn you self-deprecating…

Oh... it's really sad to read that upper post, specially since your comic was one of the main reasons for me to create comics and become an animator.

But well, my best wishes to you in your future endeavors and thanks for the message instead of just letting the comic fade away.

Thanks for all the fish!
In all seriousness, I have enjoyed this comic to its fullest. From its humor to... some other things. xP
Peace be wit-chu!

I've enjoyed your art, characters, and stories for some time. I'll keep checking in to see the next iteration.

I love your comics and hope to see more from you!

Life can suck like hell. But you have to keep hope! Don't let it consume you. Things will get better!

I wish you both the best of luck and hopefully things start to look up for the both of you. I've enjoyed reading Loth and I look forward to following you both and seeing what new projects you come up with!

I enjoyed Loth! Sad to see it go... It kinda ended on a cliff hanger too! The story was great, the art was getting better and better.

Also, thoughts of homicide at work are fairly normal ( I hope ) ... Thoughts of suicide might be a sign that you need a new job!

Thanks for everything. I've enjoyed reading Loth, but I'm not surprised keeping it in comic format was too taxing on you, comic takes much more time to make than writting and this is big story.

J.E.Flint: I would like to read that post, but the plugin you are using for scrolling makes it extremely hard. The right column is empty most of time. Firefox 24.8.

HKmaly, I use chrome so I didn't think to test it on firefox.

It's a temporary version but I'll look into it right now and see if I can fix it. Thank you HKmaly

Sorry to hear you've been through a rough patch! Thanks for the story & comics, which I have enjoyed thoroughly, and I hope you regain your footing soon. Good luck!

Sorry to hear the comic will be ending, but understand sometimes life is a bitch.
Trick is to make it your bitch.

...if you figure out that trick, let me know. Please.

Wait, does that mean don't have to check in all the time?

Prose can work, maybe add a single image that fits the page, Yamino does it quite well with the 'Missing Moments' part of "Sister Claire"

It was a fun run while it lasted. Thanks for some great memories and awesome artwork.

Don't let your dreams die! I've been in places where the sadness is suffocating. I can only tell you to focus on your dreams and think positively. I know I would love to continue reading about loth in story form or even if you kept with comics but the quality dropped a ton.
If you are really thinking about suicide multiple times a day, seek help. Seriously.

I totally get life getting in the way, and understand not having the time or motivation to do something you once loved. I have enjoyed this comic for several years, it was one of the little things I would look forward to looking at when I would bet back from missions or patrol while I was over seas. I absolutely love the story, so please don't end it, keep writing it in a purely word format if you can, I love the comic, but love the story more. All I can do is tell you how much your work has meant to me and was often the only bright point in an otherwise dark and lonely time. Life can be hard, but please don't forget that it will get better there a a bunch of faceless people around the world who care about your work, people who have been touched and had their spirits brightened by it. So if anything please know that you have made a differance in the lives of myself and others. I wish you all the best and once again ask not to let Loth's story just end like this.

Thank you.

Sorry it isn't going so well. Remember, sometimes you can adjust what makes you happy. It isn't always what you think it is.

I would follow the story in other formats, as well, but I will remain a lurker here until while the space lasts.

I should have posted here more often, I've been reading the comic since it started. It is a wonderful work of comic art and story telling with great and saucy side art.

You may not believe it yourself, but you do tell a good story and I hope someday you can find joy in it again.

Like so many others have posted I've had quite a few low moments and this comic has certainly been a bright moment in an otherwise dark world. It pains me to see you walk away from the comic but I can understand that sometimes a change is needed. That said I strongly disagree with your sense of self pity. You were telling a truly ensnaring story. I know first hand how depression can make you feel like a complete waste of space. Seeking help and counseling or perhaps medical treatment is not a sign of weakness and may be something you should look into even if it's only part of a transitional period in your life. If you truly feel that you can't continue I can understand and respect that, but don't you dare say that the story is worthless. It's meant a lot to a lot of people and it's been an amazing journey. Thanks for the trip!

You make me sad.

Always remember, when life hits you on the head, sometimes you just have to kick it between the legs. With a pair of steel toed boots.

Oh, honey...
I know how you feel. I know life can sometimes be a total butt, and sometimes you just feel like curling up into a ball and wishing it would all stop being so bad. It's okay.
Look at it this way: you've actually done something pretty incredible - making a webcomic, making the art and story all on your own time with your own energy, pushing out each page, every week, on time, connecting with readers and adding a little more beauty to this world - something most people can't say they've done, ever. I've been reading Loth from the start and it's crazy how much your art has evolved. You've changed, you've learned and helped others learn because of what you do, you've actually made the world a brighter, better place - and I hope that, whatever you do from here on, you just remember that. You're a cut above the others; you've got something great to your name now. I hope you remember all this work you've done with happiness: it's something to be really, really proud of.
I wish you only the best for the rest of your life, and I think I can speak for all the other readers here, as well as myself, in offering my gratitude for all you have done, all you have accomplished.
May your sails be always filled and your luck always good and true~!
