  1. Thoth

    Well, I still check back here every once in a while; you never know when something is going to revive.

  2. DrAnonymous

    Am I the only one who can see only one comment on page 194, although there are supposed to be 82? (before mine)

  3. Lizardman

    Yeah, wonder if it rolled over, hit the max or something

      Check Please! *leans over to someone* We splitting the bill?

  6. scurv

    I wonder if he has a new project.

    • Lizardman

      Unfortunately there’s no info on the deviantArt, facebook, or twitter that points to another project. Though there was a recent post on twitter and it looks like one of the deviantArt posts was within the last year, so he hasn’t completely disappeared.

      • scurv

        Good to know at least, Last I heard he was in school and that tends to be a time sink.

  7. climbsquickly

    well, that’s my last check. Interesting webcomic while it lasted, but they don’t usually come back after this long. So long.

  8. Brian

    I suspect the author may have left the planet.

    • scurv

      Bummer is, is you might be right.

      • Kat

        Still may check back every couple of months.

        • Hyperion

          {spits out drink} dafuq? Just a few days go the comic was missing!

          • scurv

            Could be good news maybe?

  9. Hyperion

    Well here we are again… it’s always such a pleasure… to read this comic! Any plans for an update?

  10. Kat

    Perhaps this will be the time when we finally get an update! Is it too good to be true?

    • scurv

      I kind of hope so, but I keep thinking it is due to some error like a server rollback or some form of auto pay on a bank software that has this strip back up. Still I’ll check in every few days and hope for the best.

  11. DrAnonymous

    It’s back!!! Now we just need new updates.

  12. Thoth

    Well, what do you know! I thought that it might pop up again on a new site, but I really wasn’t expecting this one to revive.

    Although at this point my next bet would be on some fairly dramatic changes if new comics appear. Leaving it this long could easily indicate that the author doesn’t find the current plotlines compelling enough to demand attention.

    Here’s hoping that new comics appear someday anyway.

    • scurv

      He does good work, I would like to see what he has any other projects.

    • Hyperion

      Well, if he does have any projects, they aren’t on deviantart… and his last twitter update seems to be… July 11, 2015

  13. GlytchMeister

    Well, hopefully he’s still alive, first of all. Completely disappearing from the Internet without even saying goodbye? It’s a bit odd.

    I miss this comic… πŸ™

    • Thoth

      Hopefully he is – and at least we know that he was active for some time after his last update here. That’s something.

    • scurv

      I hope he just gt caught up in that whole job and life thing, shame though I would love to know what he is working on now.

  14. GlytchMeister

    Checking in… No dice. Sadness.

    • Kat

      I wonder if the author fell into the Twilight Zone…

    • scurv

      I do hope they are doing well, I kinda like to think that they found that awesome job that had them sign the contract from hell that has the NDA and No-Competition clauses in it.

  15. JacobMIX

    Good news everyone! Got a response from an e-mail I sent way back. Says he’s sorry for the wait, and he’ll start updating again soon.

    • scurv

      • JacobMIX

        AHAHA! April fools!… I cope with this by joking okay.

        • Kyle

          I hate you oh my god xD

        • Kat

          You have lit the flame of hope only to smother it mercilessly. May Satan spare no mercy on your soul, and let Laz be nowhere nearby to aid you.

          • Hyperion


        • GlytchMeister

          You sonovabitch. That hurt.

          Good one. You are merciless.

  16. RicRV

    Is this thing coming back online???

  17. Ric

    Is this thing coming back???

    • Kat

      At this point, it looks doubtful. The fact that it’s still here online is promising, but we ma have been abandoned.

  18. Kyle Multop

    I still hold out hope!

  19. Evonix

    Aww… More?

  20. Flavius


  21. Kyle Multop

    Never gonna give up on the comic until I know without any doubt that it’s never going to be updated again.

    • Scurv

      I think the writer moved on to other things in the IRL

      • Kyle Multop

        I agree, but several years now he’s renewed the domain after it expired, so I hold hope.

  22. Mike

    So this is for sure dead at this point, right?

  23. testdummy06

    Anyone even know if the author is still alive?

  24. Filias

    It’s Over, Isn’t It?,It’s Over, Isn’t It?……..

    • Scurv

      Sad to say it is, but sometimes other readers check in from time to time, more to check the comments then anything

    • Kyle Multop

      I see what you did there lol

  25. Flavius

    In a more serious matter, I WILL NEVER give up hope I hope you guys don’t either

    • Kyle Multop

      Nope, until I see a post on here that it’s over, then I’ll keep coming back to check

  26. Venalitor

    I always find it amazing that a comic can go so long without updating, yet the comment section continues on.

    • Flavius

      It just shows that there is still a love for this comic and always will be πŸ˜‰

      • testdummy06

        It is a good comic. Here is to hoping that the author has not died.

  27. Scurv

    Merry Christmas and Happy Newyears.

  28. Kyle Multop

    May 2017 at least bring an answer as to whether this comic shall continue!

    • Hyperion

      What’s significant about that date in particular?

      • Kyle Multop

        May, meaning may you have a good day, or may for force be with you, not may the month lol

    • Joxi
  29. Satrinity

    Checking in- followed this one years ago, but was usually too shy to actually comment. I miss this so much, though, and just wanted to join in on the nostalgia.

  30. Zizhou

    Oh wow, I haven’t thought about this is years until I saw a random blog post about it. Next time time I see David, I’ll ask him what the story was.

    • Hyperion

      You see him often?

      • Zizhou

        Now and again, though I did get a chance to ask him about it this last Friday. He said that at least one more update will be coming to just tell the rest of the plot…eventually. Frankly, he’s kind of amazed that people still regularly comment here.

        • Scurv

          I would be happy to follow any future projects he is doing, the man knows how to tell a story and make characters come to life, and that is a rare trait.

  31. Lucifus

    I’d forgotten about this site until I saw a thing for it on TvTropes.
    Thought I would get to catch up and see where it had gone.

    Didn’t expect it to remain dead…
    More surprised to read the comments here. The returning people who check in now and again.
    Well as this fades from my memory once more I’ll just leave with the hope someone one day comments with an update for this.
    It was, and still is, an amazing read. Nicely drawn and with a story I was invested in.

    If the creator is dead. Then may this stand as tribute.
    If alive. Someone hunt them down and get us at least a goodbye!

  32. Flavius

    Still not giving up we have a contact to the author HOPE HAS COME!!

    • Kat

      A contact? Does someone know how to reach them? The contacts given on this website here lead o ignored/unseen messages. One of us should hire a P.I.

      • shajhirah

        That would be hella creepy. I want an update as much as anybody but if it were my comic and I had personal reasons for walking away then I’d want to be left alone.

        • Kat

          I’d settle just for a note on the page saying whether they’re gone for good or just taking an indefinite break, but intend to return. An update is a far-off dream. So, here we are again. Same old page, same old growing web of comments from lonely fans. Ignored. Forgotten. Hopeful.

          • FlaviusAetitus

            ‘Zizhou’ says he sees ‘David’ the creator the comic every so often. He said next time he’ll ask and give us an update.

  33. Anime fan

    Brymstone updated in February. Thought I’d meander through the rest of my old fave’s that went the way of hiatus. WELL. On my way to Picatrix then.

  34. Scurv

    I’m actually kinda checking in weekly now that I’ve heard that the author is still alive.

  35. Kyle Multop

    I still haven’t given up hope, even thought its been more than four years lmao.

  36. Joxi


  37. Flavius

    Whisper of a dream

  38. Zimriel

    I figure this isn’t the last comic. The real last comic is when Lilitu tears apart her son’s soul for failing that test in illusory Earth. He was always a weak boy with a lust for power, she says, as she licks the last of his blood from her iron nails

  39. Scurv

    David has some storytelling chops, I would be delighted for a link of any future comic he did. And this one handles well with a reread.

  40. Fafhred

    Resurrection check….. failed

  41. SgtWadeyWilson

    I find myself here again, and I will be back. I hope we get something from this wonderful writer/artist by then, because I miss it, and seeing something good come back to the internet would be especially satisfying in these interesting times.

  42. Scurv

    His about page hinted at something in Q3/17 so…who knows.

    • Hyperion

      And Q3/17 stands for… what, exactly?

      • Scurv

        quarter 3, 2017 or in the late summer to fall.

      • Scurv

        quarter 3, 2017 or in the late summer to fall.

        • Hyperion

          Ah, okay. Thank you.

        • Yakumo

          So, assuming it’s the entire year 2017 broken into quarters, wouldn’t the end of this month be the end of quester 3?

          • Scurv

            More or less Yakumo, some businesses offset when they start their count as to take into account the holidays and such.
            But yeah Quarter 4 Normally starts around the end of sept. or the end of August.

  43. wkwillis

    You are coming back!

  44. IronPuma

    well, this is sad. I really liked this comic

    • GlytchMeister

      HE’S BACK
