Author Notes

Okay, Okay... so let me start off by apologizing for lying to you, my readers and friends, about updates resuming on 12/26/16. After the holidays, it became kind of apparent to me that I was a little overwhelmed balancing work, my family, and this comic and ended up taking what I thought was going to be a little break....

Some things led to another and it's now even more apparent that I'm not only unprepared to resume updates, but I'll need to find a better system/routine for working on IKtH. That being said... IKtH will be going on a ***small*** hiatus while I figure things out and rebuild my buffer. I Killed the Hero will absolutely return. I refuse to be one of those guys who says hiatus but means he's quitting. I'm far too passionate about this project. That being said, I just finished the script for World 2, I'm feeling super pumped and am pretty confident you all will like where things go... so please, please, SUPER please, stick around. As for when IKtH will return... well, I'm not quite sure yet and I'm a little reluctant to give a date because last thing I wanna do is let you guys and gals down.

Again, I want to thank you all so much for reading, commenting, theorizing, and just being part of the fun. I'm a crazy lucky dude to have such an awesome little community backing me and I PROMISE I will not let you down.

Thank you so much for understanding and I'll see you guys real soon.

Not gonna lie, when you didn't update I was a bit disappointed but I figured it was the holidays, it's time to be with family! And really, it's necessary decompression time. So if you didn't get it then, take time now and get it! We'll still be here when you get back :)

Thanks for understanding, my friend.
Life kinda... snuck up on me there. I was totally overwhelmed with my job, my family life, and barely had time to draw. I did have a lot of free time to write though so the script for World 2... which I rewrote 4 times... is now solid and complete.

Thank you, Seabiscuit.
Everything is good now! Heck, everything was good then... I was just overwhelmed and a little burnt if I'm being honest.
But my... um... extended break has recharged me! I'm ready to resume!

Hello, Mr. Outlaw. I've read up to your most recent comic so far and I must say that I absolutely both adore and agree with everything in this story!

Thank you for making a comic that every gamer (both active and retired) can appreciate!

Thank me?
Thank you, Xovi! I really appreciate you reading and enjoying the comic. Knowing that it strikes a cord with my fellow game loving comic readers is all I ever wanted. I appreciate your kind words a lot!

Blarg! Welp, thanks for the update. I can easily tolerate a delay, no matter the duration because I dig this webcomic.
A few quick and easy Q&As might pass the time a bit.

Thanks for understanding, Zup!
Unfortunately, I didn't even have time for any Q and A's... honestly... they take about as much time as a normal update... but there will be more to come! Thanks for waiting.

Hey Outlaw! I finally caught up and wow I did not realise how long I'd be out of the loop! ;v;* I'm glad you're safe from the hurricane and I'm sorry to hear how tough it's been time-wise and energy-wise with all that's been going on. I thoroughly enjoyed the Q&A and the intermission - truly exciting stuff, I can't wait to see what you've got coming next!

That said, no pressure - I totally get it when you say you need a hiatus to recuperate and organise things. I hope you get a really good rest and manage to spend lots of time with your family (and new little one <3), and of course, I hope you can jump back in with renewed vigour and all the power-ups :D

Thanks for bringing IKTH to us Outlaw <3 we'll still be here when you're ready to come back! :D

You're a really good friend, Rufiangel. I appreciate you a lot.

The break was a little longer than I expected.. but now I'm fully recharged and ready to go! With excellent comics like Serpamia Flare inspiring me... I'm going to keep drawing!

I'll wait until you come back! I really liked this story because I liked the way you presented the story and everything too! Take your time and come back whenever it is already time. (I binged read the entire webcomic a week ago and felt sad for myself when I finally caught up. I literally just fell to my knees and just yelled "NNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!" to myself too. Heheheh
