Outsider posts new pages (when available) on Mondays, but updates can be irregular, so I encourage you to use the RSS feed if you're interested in keeping up. [WIP Thread]

9 February 2015: Not... quite done yet! I'll post the new page as soon as it's finished.

2 February 2015: I'm delaying the posting of the new page by one week, to February 9th. My recent move put me behind at work, and I wasn't able to make up the time. Sorry for the delay, and I'll see you next week!

12 January 2015: Outsider will resume updates on Monday, February 2nd. I appreciate your patience and forebearance with this long and unplanned hiatus.

31 July 2014: "Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much! It just so happens that your friend here is only mostly dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive." - Miracle Max, The Princess Bride

22 August 2013: Just a note to let everyone know I'm still here, the comic isn't dead. I'm just going through a patch where it's hard to find free time. I'm still working on the 3D sets for the next pages, but hopefully it won't be long before I can resume posting pages.

20 May 2013: I finally got around to converting the Prologue pages to the new, larger format.

17 February 2013: New page: 102
Sorry for the long delay.

17 December 2012: Happy Holidays!
I will try to get page 102 finished as soon as possible. I did post a few updates in Insider.

25 October 2012: There is a review of Outsider up at Liberation Frequency, and they also have an interview with yours truly to go with it.

5 March 2012: Page 99 still isn't finished yet, but in the meantime, feel free to kill time perusing the Registry of Blue Peoples.

20 February 2012: No new page this week. I did add new images to Concepts and Guest Art.

14 February 2012: New page: 98
Happy Valentine's Day.

Don't panic -- the comic hasn't gone black and white; it's a flashback sequence.
