Happy Fathers Day to any Dads, too all you kids gather your credits, make sure you have enough DLC and give your Dad a call.

Here we go with Hiatus Pack 2, which includes some Team Logo designs. Thanks to everybody who submitted suggestions last week, there are so many of you Autonoms I had a lot to choose from, so thanks! I designed 6 logos and went with the one I felt came out the best, the rest will show up around the arena.

As a general update, production is going well, faster than I thought, but got some big pages coming up that will need some big location designs for the sub levels. Regardless, still a bit too early to lay out a concrete hiatus schedule, so check back on Sundays as always.

Thanks so much to those who donated this week, Johnathan B, Tim R and Nadja H!

Lastly a new drawing from UchihaDEMS up in the Fanart Gallery, thanks!

See you next week.

Okay, i'm going to be dorky and geek out for a second. YAY, one of my names got chosen! Woooo! :)

Pressing "Reply" would have helped... Anyways, Congrats.

Thank you! :) Congrats to the others who got their names chosen, too. Even if mine's an opponent, it's still kind of neat. Usually if i'm commenting or trying to get involved in a community, I get ignored. Participating in this one has been a really pleasant change of pace!

Cheers, it's a lot to keep up with but I appreciate anyone who comments and try to reply to as much as I can, as well as do a bunch of reader participation stuff.
Liska 16th Jun 2014, 1:00 AM edit delete reply
It's really rare and quite appreciated. Not that I want you to feel obligated to reply... it's just a pleasant surprise to see an author *really* interacting with their fans on a real time basis.

My names weren't picked :(
...then again I can't blame you XD

So, are you a dad yourself?
Notos 15th Jun 2014, 11:25 PM edit delete reply
Yes as the audience grows it will be harder to pick things to include when I do these kinds of reader participation bits, back when I used to only get get 10 or so comments I could include them all (like the Band Name suggestion one) back in Chapter 2. Still, I appreciate every suggestion. And nope, not a dad.

(Jaw drops to the floor)

Omigosh, you chose one of my suggestions for GALVIN's team??? I'm so flattered....thank you!

But now you've got me curious....just what is Strikeball? I got the impression it was a soccer knockoff, but now you've got Gogol in a bowling pose...?
mountain0goat 15th Jun 2014, 10:41 PM edit delete reply
The Strikeball sport that I know of is somewhat like paintball but with small plastic bullets instead of paintballs. the players wear cardboard dress (on top of the protective gear) and they can tell the shots from the punctured cardboard.
guns are ultra-realistic copies of existing weaponry. the bullets fly farther than painballs and less protective gear is necessary for this making this game really simulate a modern-day skirmish.

I don't think that this is what Notos had in mind though. my guess is something resembling dodgeball.

You'll find out early in the next chapter! And thanks for the suggestion, of course.

Double HUUUUGE congrats then b^^d

Oh Wow! - So many great logos there :D
Grats to Ryglights on naming Glavin's team - and to the rest of us who named the others ^^

(Inc me! Yey :D Glad you liked Casey!)
((Also, is it a co-incidence that the Motorhead's colours are 2/3 the same as S+G's? - Awesome either way!!!)) :D
Notos 15th Jun 2014, 11:35 PM edit delete reply
It was fun to design them, I've never really attempted anything that is supposed to resemble a team logo, my experience in logo design has all been corporate so far. And thanks for the suggestion of course, Motor Heads was particularly cyberpunk sounding so I couldn't ignore it.
Draginbeard 16th Jun 2014, 12:42 AM edit delete reply
really cool glimpse of the production stuff and sketch work =)
Rauron 16th Jun 2014, 4:43 AM edit delete reply
Very cool logos, and Galvin's team's name is particularly fitting! I'm a bit confused about what Gogol is doing in his sketch; it'll be cool to see the game!
Notos 16th Jun 2014, 7:24 PM edit delete reply
Indeed, it was a good suggestion. Nice and cyberpunk-y yet still sounds like it could be a real team name. And the poses are just general throw-y sport-y poses, there's a lot of running and tossing in Strikeball.

So excited to see the strikeball team in action for next chapter!
b3nc0 16th Jun 2014, 8:25 PM edit delete reply
Thanks! So ridiculously proud right now ^////^
Kuddos on the logos, should there have been a poll, my fav logo would have been Gear Crushers but I dig the Silver Bolts though, especially the visual double entendre ♥
See, not even promoting /my/ suggestion (◠◡◠)

not having a facebook profile means I get to spam random sites' comments with the good news :P

YEEEAAAH! Congratulations…
And you're perfectly right to come here and anywhere‼ Who needs FB anyway?

Okay, even on Hiatus this comic has great energy and is just ripping fun. I look forward to every update. Take care and thanks.
Notos 17th Jun 2014, 2:12 PM edit delete reply
Thanks man, I try to post fresh content even when on hiatus, gotta stay relevant and keep people's interest.
Jonas Felix 18th Jun 2014, 2:31 AM edit delete reply
the comic have some facebook page, or tumblr, or twitter?
Notos 18th Jun 2014, 12:16 PM edit delete reply
Not at this time, I'm pretty inept when it comes to social media. I might look into it at some point, if I do it will be mentioned here, of course.
angua 19th Jun 2014, 7:01 PM edit delete reply
I really like this comic <3, I wonder if it's possible to make twitter for BT so we could fallow updates there?
Pretty please?
I see someone already asked the same question so I'll just 'vote" for twitter ;)
Notos 21st Jun 2014, 2:41 AM edit delete reply
Hey there, thanks! I'll look into a twitter account, I'm just not really sure how that kinda stuff works, seems like another thing to update and keep track of! If I decide to take the plunge I'll mention here, of course.
