What Happened to The Zen of Nimbus?
APRIL 10, 2008
I haven't posted a "Zen of Nimbus" comic since February. I've received some nice e-mails asking why I've stopped working on what had been a weekly comic for several months, and will I be starting up again?
The Travels of Nimbus #3
The answer in context with the comic is that Nimbus got fed up with the intruding telephone, and needed a break. He's currently traveling around the world, and I'm working on a series of images (such as the two seen here) that document this journey.
The real answer is that life intruded, I've been busy and I fell behind in the comic, first for one week, then another, and so on. I now have a real appreciation for what it means to do a weekly or even a daily comic. I honestly don't know how Charles Schulz was able to sustain "Peanuts" daily over so many years, with no apparent drop-off in quality (I've been buying the Fantagraphics' Complete Peanuts volumes as they become available, and am reading them with my son).
The Travels of Nimbus #5
I'll pick up the "Zen" comics again at some point. They're too much fun not to do.
