You're probably wondering
... Why I decided to suddenly update, not with a new page but sketches of pages from the old plot line?
Well to be very honest, I haven't been on the groove with Heroic Villain lately. I'm finding difficulty in writing the new plotline for Heroic Villain and I feel like I've lost my heart and initial drive I had for the comic. I also feel like I've lost the purpose and feel of this comic and I have nothing but regret in trying to revamp it which made the comic feel quite dead to me.
I feel horrible for keeping my readers waiting on it for so long even though I know that most of my time is now with Magical How? on sparklermonthly and that it's the fault of my schedule. I still feel bad even knowing that and I don't think I have enough apologies for those that are loyal to Heroic Villain and waiting on it.
I kept thinking that maybe I'll have the drive for it again but so far I'm unable to muster it up and do so. Everytime I see Heroic Villain I just feel nothing with it and god I hated it so much to just not feel any drive for a work I have.
I uploaded these unfinished pages of the old plot line which were from the beginning of Chapter 3 from 2014, since it didn't feel right to make an announcement with nothing else.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that, Heroic Villain is possible dead now and I don't want to lie to you fantastic readers about the state of it. I'm regrettably sorry for making you wait and having an update like this and for getting your hopes up. I am sad and I hope I can come back someday, maybe not with Heroic Villain, but with other works.
Thank you for being wonderful readers, smackjeeves is my home and where I started with comics, I'll definitely be back with something else.

gosh darn it these non-pages are so cute. the comic really had some life to it back then. it managed to be cute and fun but still had serious moments and times that invoked worry or suspense.
man, i get that you wanted to change things up but i think you passed up on something great. the revamp was alright but it didn't hold a candle to the original. i get that you wanna quit and that you're not feelin it anymore, but maybe instead of quittin you can take this as a sign if you believe in those kinda things? hear me out here. to go along with the update you decided on postin unfinished pages from the old story when you coulda just written up an easy page with a small drawin detailing what woulda happened in the new story. i think your heart's still in the old story, man. maybe take some time to consider continuin with it. it doesn't gotta be soon. take a holiday, do some soul searchin. then come back and see how you feel.

I'm sad to see this one go but I'll keep following your projects and keep reading Magical How? :)

Yeah, it wasn't hard to guess the comic wasn't coming back, but it's ok, you should only devote yourself to what bring you happiness when you work on it, or at the very least what gets you more attention/monies which can in turn bring you happiness.
