hey guys!!

so sparkler monthly is up and running which means at long last off*beat is continuing.
I'm nervous and excited after all these years it's really a mixed bag of emotions for me right now.
(Well pregnancy hormones probably don't help with that....)

I want to apologize for my lack of presence on the web these days.  I really don't want to keep going on and on about how tough this pregnancy has been on me, but's one of the longest hardest things I've had to endure both physically and mentally in my entire life so my time sitting upright at the computer has to be spent very wisely (and is pretty much exclusively work related)

Thanks again so very much for the support and encouragement and I hope you guys will enjoy the last book of Off*beat.  It certainly has been a long time coming!!

  • Listening to: Investigation ID
  • Reading: schedules and scripts
  • Watching: my computer burn into my retinas
  • Playing: random iphone stuff
  • Eating: everything tastes like acid reflux
  • Drinking: room here

When the series is done updating on Sparkler, are you going to sell it as an e-book? I'd rather just own the whole thing at one go. Sad that I won't be able to add it to my book shelf though <3

ZOMG! More Off*beat? *excited flailing*

And you're having a baby? CONGRATULATIONS! I hope it all goes well. :)

Read it. Grinning my head off. :D

I don't remember if you've said, will there be a print version available? If not, I guess I'll just have to sign up to Sparkler and download the new chapters as they go up.

So freakishly happy that I finally got to read the 13th chapter!! *^____^* :excited: :excited: I've been super busy these past couple months but I did read the chapter as soon as it was available!! Makes me feel so giddy and fan-girly all over again! I'm so glad your work has so much support!! X3 Now I have that oh so familiar impatient feeling of waiting for the next installment! ><  I'm so surprised by Tory ohoho OuO

So chapter 13 did things to my insides that just made me want to shout or cry or just sob grossly into my keyboard. I don't think I've ever been this excited for something in my whole life which is saying a lot. Adorable chapter and I just love this comic so much. I'm just so glad you've picked it up for sure now because I don't know if I could take years waiting for the next chapter.
Thank you for existing!

Just got off one of the shittiest job interviews of my life yesterday amidst the various other tough things as of late that usually mean not stopping to do things like read comics. But as it turns out, when I saw word the next chapter of Off*Beat was finally up, I still had to stop and read. Thanks so much for making something that could turn my day just a little bit more around. Though it's hard just reading one chapter! I wish the whole thing could just be up now, hehe. But I guess after all this time, it's good to savor what is left as well. :) Good luck with pregnancy/baby stuff!

Ahh, Jen! Congratulations on your pregnancy! I hope things are going well for you! :heart: It was so lovely to read the latest chapter! I feel very fortunate that this was possible.. thank you for your hard work and perseverance!

Oh man, you have no idea how happy this makes me. Off*Beat is my favorite manga in the entire world and to see more of it now is just the best thing ever! Do you know when the next chapter will be up? And OMG, I DID NOT KNOW YOU WERE PREGNANT! I wish you luck, you're much more brave than I am! :heart:

Heya! I clearly remember reading off*beat back when we both were drawing for Tokyopop. But rereading the sweet brand new copies I got from the Kickstarter, I gotta say it's pretty damn good and way more subtle and multilayered then I remember! It's especially great when read all at once! I'm pretty excited to read the new stuff, or even that there is new stuff.

NickAlmand Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013
Yaaaay!!~~~<3 So glad to hear it, Jen!! And the baby probably explains why I couldn't find you on gmail chat lately! xD If we ever live near each other, I'd totally babysit! x3 Um, but after the baby's potty trained. >_> <_< ^_^
