Issue #4 Bonus 9

Wednesday, the 6th of June, 2012

Sorry, is the first word that comes to my mind. It's not that I plan these disappearances aheads, but I can't help myself.

This time however It's also a time to reflect to what's been happening with myself and if it's even possible for me to keep a steady peace in my RL while still doing what I love, which is drawing.

In this context Alpha Luna it's been a huge project for me for the past few years and specially during the end of 2010 when it was its debut in paperback format for my local audience.
I gained a lot of attention but much of that fades quickly away and to be honest, while I got a lot of positive feedback and fans, in the long run I didn't get much of anything else.

RL calls and while it does I have less time and priorities take place and at the end of the day the lack of energies have a huge point on dis-continuing AL in a steady way (Im not that young anymore).
So, my mind have drifted to other subjects to ease the load while shutting down connection to the site and people. Is a responsable way of doing so? Of course not. But I'm a flawed person that prefers to shut down bonds than making a fuzz about personal dilemas, which is exactly what I'm doing here. And I wonder, if it's still worth it and I quickly answer, yes.

Meaning that I want to keep doing AL as long as I can... but I don't think I can dream as high as once anymore. I doubt it I will ever be picked by an important publisher in north america, and so I have to be realistic about it. I dont live by it, neither by doing comics or illustrations.

For about 7 years Al it's been going on for free online because I've loved getting feedback as I've progressed through it.

But recently and since my last absence I've felt a lot of pressure from people who claim certain debt from my part when people should remember this page is a free showcase, a window for a story that'd I love to bring more often but that also consume a part of my life.
And since my last absence I just got 2 o 3 emails asking about my status out of hundred if not thousand of visits I got each day. Which is a huge letdown for me. I get more job offers for other kind of art, furry art, tf art which are stuff that -actually- in the end keep this site alive, and NOT AL itself. While AL doesn't contribute to anything else than my pride.

I know I'm sounding a bit too materialist but it's the hard truth. People come, watch a page , smiles and walk away in a few seconds after I worked several hours into it. And that's how things are for most artist or any. But the difference here is that I'm not being paid for it and yet people demand more and I just can shrug.

Don't get me wrong, I love drawing, I love sharing what I do but I don't like being pointed out about how I irresponsable I am (when, probably I am) when from your part is only two clicks away.

So, all things considered I've decided to implement a new method. Is not revolutionary, but it will be sort of an incentive to help me out in this quest.

AL will resume, but first next page will be only available for 1 week in advance for donators only which will also include an extra bonus pic. After that week passes, the page will be available for everybody and the following will be immediately available for donators only for next week and so on.

This method will work automatically through e-junkie & paypal at my personal store and links will be available here at the right moment. So in the end everybody will still be able to view the comic freely while donators will be able to help me more directly while receiving something a page in advance. It's an incentive that will also help me out to see how many are really interested into see AL being continued and how many can really support it.

I hope you don't take this in the wrong way and you may understand from where I' coming from. Again, sorry for constant disappearing and I'll do my best to keep around while people care about Luna . Thanks to the people who has been supporting me all along.

PS: As for the pic above, it' just an image I had of a scene that may or may not happen at all in AL but I think it was cool enough to draw, kinda also inspired by the end of Game of Thrones season 1.

oracle33c says:June 7, 2012 at 1:24 amgood luck to you leo, great work, don't give up
MiniMink says:June 7, 2012 at 1:33 amGlad you're taking care of yourself Leo. I hope everything works out. Don't give up on your dreams of getting published, however. If you work hard enough, and really ask around, I know there's someone who would be more than willing to publish you. You just have to keep at it. I'll definitely contribute when I can, though right now isn't the best time, being unemployed and all ^^;. You deserve so much more than just a quick glance. You're one of the best artists in the furry and TF communities. I wish you the best of luck in the future.
David says:June 7, 2012 at 2:23 amLeo, you are completely justified in doing what you're doing;

I want to add that you, among a few others, are one of the biggest influences in my art! Your style and story have both greatly affected how I write and draw, and it's all thanks to you. I know that Real Life is sometimes inconvienient, but don't let that get you down. We appreciate all your hard work and hope that you have tons of success! You have the talent and the determination to work hard, and that's very admirable. Keep at it, and never loose hope! A slight glance is sometimes all it takes to get someone to fall in love with your story. It only took me one glance before I realized just how much AL has influenced my creative side! Thank you for having shared your wonderful gift, it is both wonderful and incredible!

Hope that didn't sound too... you know, "creepy fan base."

Thank you, and may happiness and success become your greatest friends!
Thee Forsaken One says:June 7, 2012 at 2:40 amAs long as you let me know when the new system is up and running then I shall consider becoming a donater. I really enjoy Alpha Luna and the universe it's set in. I'm still a little sad the forums disappeared but I'm glad to see some more art from you. :)
Thee Forsaken One says:June 7, 2012 at 3:11 amNow for a more thoughtful comment:

I understand the frustration of not being able to do what you love for a living. I also understand prioritising what gets you money over person work. Whenever I've been commissioned, I always put that before my own stuff.

Nowadays being picked up by a publisher never seems to be working out. Most people I think now go for self-publishing (And doing it via Kickstarter is becoming increasingly popular).

My advice, as much as it is, would be to keep doing as much of the comic as you can until you build up a critical mass of followers. After that, look into self-publishing. If you're successful enough you should at least make some money, and possibly maybe even attract the attention of some publisher.

Most webcomics I follow weren't able to do well enough for their author to work full-time on it until after about four or more years of continuous work. I know you've been working on AL longer than that but well there have been long gaps and fans aren't the most loyal of creatures (I like to think I'm loyal but that's because I got involved in the community that used to be here which made me stay even when comics were not being posted. I did love the create your own character contest even if I never placed.).

So yeah, I guess that's my advice which you can take or leave. Build up your fanbase then look into self-publishing. It's not too bad now and well maybe you'll make lots of money. :P

P.S. I utterly adore the picture of Luna here. It's amazing.
Azrael says:June 7, 2012 at 5:44 amLeo,

I came accross AlphaLuna two days ago. Fortuitous timing, no? =P I quite enjoyed it, both story and art, and I am very pleased to hear that you will be continuing to produce AL. As to the above; You do what you need to do to take care of you. Your fans will understand. Or they won't. Like my Old Man used to tell me: "You can please some of the people some of the time. As for the rest, fuck 'em if they can't take a joke." So thank you very much for your work and I look forward to seeing more when you can. =D
no-name says:June 7, 2012 at 6:27 amFirst off, it's good to "hear" that you are still around. Staring at your last Twitter entry for months on end made me wonder if you fell off the face of the Earth...or worse, but it's nice to see that you're alive and well. Okay, maybe just alive; I don't know how "well" your life is going right now, but I'm sure it's better than it was before. :p

In any case, I am writing this letter to express my appreciation for your work. I can't believe I've been following you for well over a decade now. I remember keeping tabs on you since Cambios and a two-page comic that was never completed. I think there may have been a colored sequence of the aforementioned comic, but my memory has been hazy as of late. From the days of Transfur and LoboLeo.net, it has been a fun ride and I'm sorry I never said that more often than I should.
I'm not one to ask about personal affairs; it's not my place to intrude on their privacy. At the same time, I don't like to bother people with obvious questions like, "When is the next page/episode/song/etc. coming out?". I have no place to demand such things, especially when you're providing "free entertainment". I'd be lying to say that I'm not concerned about these things, but I've seen several good artists (in my opinion) drop off the map because people just kept pestering them about that particular project that they're known for and nothing else. I'd like to avoid that scenario, so I usually keep a fair distance while supporting where I can via the Store.

In regards to the direction you will be taking AL, I'm all for it. As much as I hate the "FIRST!" status of most digital media (Remember when most video game pre-orders had PHYSICAL items before DLC became the standard? I miss those days.), I really like your work and I wouldn't mind helping you out this way. It's just one of those things you have to do to keep moving forward, right?
By the way, I recall you were selling physical copies of AL in Spanish. How's that going, any way? I also had some questions regarding several unfinished projects on LoboLeo.com, but the specifics can be saved for another day.

Once again, for what value these words may have, thank you for all you've done this past decade. I will continue to support you, whether it's in the shadows or with a donation. Please let me know when you will be starting this and I will try to jump on it ASAP.

Take care, man.
Drakalyte says:June 7, 2012 at 8:19 amI only started reading your comic yesterday and to be honest, I would donate if I had a PayPal, but I don't unfortunately. I'll get One if I can. Tumsa valda, bet mëness virsrokü.
TSG says:June 7, 2012 at 11:36 amHappy you're kinda back.

Personnally, I totally get your feeling, because I too make things for people to download on my website ( http://www.goblinounours.fr/tsglab/ ), and LOTS of people download and use what I offer, but don't even says "thanks".

Same thing on DeviantArt. People fav' things I do, but never says anything. I'm merely on DA just to help people having a big fav' gallery.

That's sort of how the internet works. We have to deal with it.

I'm not one to say "give us more pages for free!". My thought was always that you can make a page per year, that'll be fine with me, but on your end, don't forget that we come here on your website (once a day, I check it), and oftenly, we say things like "Leo, are you ok?", and you don't answer. That's the problem for me.

You SHOULD make a fuzz about personal dilemas at least once a month. It's a way to say "I'm alive!", because there's people that cares about you, here.
And then, we can talk with you, because if we're only anonymous people to you, I still think we can understand what you're dealing with.

Anyway, the donation system is a good idea. If I had any money to give to you, I would (because as I said, I have problems myself).
I hope it will work for you.
Leo says:June 7, 2012 at 11:54 am@David, @Minimink, @juanlopez, @oracle33c
Thank you.

@the forsaken one
Your are correct on the way of self-publishing and how important is to gain a consistence audience, thx for your words.

@Azrael thx for your words

@no-name
Thanks for your kinds words, it's nice to read of someone who's been following me for so long.
The physical copies of AL were sold (eventually) and I still have a few to spare , but I'm still waiting if I'll get any revenue on it. So yeah...
I have plans o post new stuff at loboleo.com but I can'tsay exactly when, one of the main work's for that site is almost done so ...maybe soon? :p
Thee Forsaken One says:June 7, 2012 at 12:29 pm@Leo

You're welcome although there is two 'e's in my name. It's not a typo. :P

Anyway, keep up the good work and I hope you get the new system up for Alpha Luna soon. ^^
Soriel says:June 7, 2012 at 12:34 pmLeo, glad to hear you are in good health. Since I discovered AL in my quest for good webcomics, I have kept checking this page every week day. I know it's hard to keep up in the real life doing what you like to do. I know life can be hard. But always remember that somwhere in the world, no matter where it is, there is always a blue sky. Even if it's rainning where you live, even if it's the night time, there is always a blue sky.

As for the page that would get out earlier for donators, I know RCSI is doing that with Code Name: Hunter (but they are far in their story and release pages at a steady pace). Why not go making a buffer at your rythm, get donators (they would be those that see the image first) then put them up here at a regular pace. I actually don't know if you are going to use that method, but it might work here.
Waffles says:June 7, 2012 at 2:49 pmYOU'RE FUCKING BACK WITH A NEW SITE!?!?!

*Wigs out*
Screwitman says:June 7, 2012 at 2:54 pm@Waffles/Sis, read the description.
Kenneth says:June 7, 2012 at 3:01 pmI waited, and kept waiting because I love your comic. I knew that you had other stuff to do than to draw to entertain us. I don't care how long I'll have to wait, because you could use your spare time to anything, but you are chosing us and the comic rather than all the other things you could do. So I don't mind waiting, because it's your time, and we are not supposed to make your decisions :)

And I may or may not be able to help, but I'll try. I might not be able to help you being published in USA, but I've a connection to the biggest comic puplisher of Denmark. If you would like to, I could put you in contact with them, and you could make some kind of deal if you wanted. What do you say?
Wafflestothemax says:June 7, 2012 at 3:26 pmHey Leo, thanks for everytthing! I hope that you will go further with Alpha Luna, even perhaps someday score a chance to publish your paper back in the US. I wish, that I can donate a few bucks for you, but someday I will get down of owning a credit card. Pfff, those publsihers are meanies for not publishing your book! I mean, you should be famous by now! You're inspired me to contining drawing, and taught me to keep a goal in mind even if it's senseless!
Leo, do your best, do what you can,even not if it's good enough for someone else, it just take some time, man!
max says:June 7, 2012 at 3:51 pmYOU'RE BACK!!!!!!!! I will donate if I can (im saving for something special)... well that's it, I love AL, I must admit I had lost hope... but you proved me wrong, and im happy about it :D
i'll see what I can do about donations :P
MoonMate says:June 7, 2012 at 7:26 pm>w< GOOD THING I CHECKED!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!! XDDD YOUR BACK!!!
TimidTabby says:June 7, 2012 at 8:16 pmI'm always a person with little to say, and most of everyone above has already pointed out great advice and such so I would feel like I'm repeating.

All I can say is that I'm equally happy to hear that all is currently well with you and that I hope life doesn't stress you out too much for continuing AL and all of your current and future works.

Know that I have, and always will be, watching and enjoying your works >^__^<
GunmastO says:June 7, 2012 at 9:33 pmEstoy contento que tú estás haciendo bien Leo. :D

I hope that my Spanish is correct. I'm taking an exam tomorrow.
VioletRosefall says:June 8, 2012 at 4:29 amDebo admitir que en estos últimos meses me había hecho de una idea poco profesional sobre la forma en que llevaste este periodo de 'inactividad', que enverdad habías perdido a voluntad por continuar el comic y simplemente le estabas dando el 'dedo medio' a los fans. Pero supongo me faltó visión para comprender o imaginar lo que estaba sucediendo.

Personalmente soy apenas un novato en el mundo artístico del dibujo, gran admirador de tu estilo desde hace años (no, no solo lo digo por el arte 'TF/lycan', lo digo por el detalle en las expresiones y perfección que le das a tus diseños sin ignorar el más minimo detalle de ellos), pero si se lo dificil que és intentar hacer que tu trabajo, aquel al que le das todo tu sudor y pasión, se convierta en algo más grande, su publicación o reconocimiento internacional... y creeme Leo, lo peor que uno puede hacer cuando la frustración te llega es el abandono total.

Yo escribo historias, historias que algun día anelo con publicar o darles una forma más material, y por mucho tiempo me dedique a 'publicarlas' por la web y solo 2 o 3 personas en este mundo se han molestado en siquiera leerlas; y no por eso eh abandonado ese anelo, sigo trabajando en esas historias con la seguridad de que un día alcanzarán el nivel que espero. ¿Para qué escribo esto? la verdad no lo sé, pero espero sirva para si quiera un momento de reflexión.

Finalmente, no, no retiro mi postura original de que un simple mensaje en el blog/twitter diciendo "Comic on pause for now, dealing with stuff, no estimate return date for now. Thanks." o parecido, habría hecho una gran diferencia en la reacción de las personas que seguían el comic. El arte TF/lycan por el que muchos te conocen (uff, yo me acuerdo cuando vi tus trabajos por primera vez y usabas el nombre LeoLooney, como pasan los años!) es punto y aparte, en ese caso no hay problema si solamente lo dejas pues es simplemente algo que haces por hobby. Por otro lado, este comic, aunque igualmente se le podría llamar un hobby, creo tenía una mayor importancia por que la gente lo ve/lee no solo por el arte sino por la historia que progresa con cada página, con cada diálogo, y el repetino stop de esto si casua cierto sentimiento de frustración para los lectores y fans que aunque no lo creas no solo 'dan click, ven la página y cierran la ventana' sino que dan voz de difusión a tu trabajo. Un mero 'hey vi este comic en esta página y me gusto, checalo!' llega a ser más valioso de lo que uno normalmente imagina y sucede sin que el autor se de cuenta.

Lo que hagas de aqui en adelante con el comic será tu elección Leo, y en resumen lo que quiero explicarte es que por inutiles, carpichosos o pocos que parescan las personas que ven/leen, siguen y gustan de tu trabajo (especialmente este comic) son una parte muy importante del mismo, más aún si lo que quieres es que este se expanda en un proyecto mucho mayor.

Te deseo la mejor de las suertes Leo, esperaré con interes lo que pueda venir en el futuro para Alpha Luna.

Saludos!
yamijenny87 says:June 8, 2012 at 2:48 pmif I could support it with donations I would but I have no income. so all I can do is support it in telling my other friends about it, as i have been doing, but your idea is a great one Leo and I am all for it ^_^ whatever helps
Damitri says:June 8, 2012 at 3:32 pmGood to see your back buddy.

Knew you would be back at some point despite the doom sayers.

Like the idea about the premium access for you artwork.

Good to see your back and hope you can stick around for a while

Regards

D.K. says:June 8, 2012 at 3:53 pmThis is EXACTLY THE CORRECT WAY you should go about continuing to produce this online manga. Number one: it's very well done and is a good product, so you deserve to profit from it in at least a small way. Number 2: anyone who has gotten to enjoy your work up until now can see it in their heart to make some kind of donation either now or in the near future. It's an investment towards something that they're sure to get plenty of entertainment value from. Good luck and keep up the good work!
Leo says:June 8, 2012 at 4:22 pm@TGS
I'll try to be more open. Thanks for you words.

@Soriel
Thanks for the link, I may can learn a few things from other comic authors. Thanks.

@Kenneth
Thanks for your offer. My issue with other countries is the localization. Danish or any other language but the ones I use (spanish/english) translation means a different barrier and a lot of work if it happens that any publisher gets interested, not knowing by myself what kind of comic culture there is there. That's why I've been pointing my chances North America mostly.

@Waffles
Thanks, you keep it up too :)

@Timidtabby
Nice seeing you around here, thanks.

@GunmastO
"Estoy contento de que lo estés haciendo bien, Leo" ;)
So you get an A-
:p

@VioletRosefall
La frustración es parte de la vida, pero a veces es imposible no sentirse afectado.
Si no estas publciando tus historias en la web, quizas deberías para recibir mas críticas. Si lo haces y aun no tienes gente que las vea, pues dale tiempo. Además a veces no necesitas una cantidad grande de gente sino un par que de verdad lo lean con aprecio. Es fácil recibir abalanzas de mucha gente y olvidar la autocrítica, ser auto-complaciente es uno de los peores estigmas para cualquier autor artístico o literario.

"LeoLooney" OMG... no me recuerdes xp. AL sigue teniendo mas importante que mi hobby de ilustraciones pero por lo mismo uno aspira a llegar a lugares distintos y cuando no se logra uno tiende a encogerse. Pero bueno, lo dejar mensajes es algo que repararé en el futuro, lo siento en verdad. Se que los lectores son importantes, intentaré mejorar, un abrazo.

@All
Thanks for your support and kind words! :) I'll be back soon.
Mike says:June 8, 2012 at 5:36 pmWelcome back! Glad to see you’re okay and the comic will continue (but mostly that you’re okay).
Mike (your sometimes Editor)
Lakehaven4690 says:June 8, 2012 at 9:51 pmhey leo glad you're back

i don't really have a PayPal account but i'll try to get one.

anyways why not see my videos, Leo? like this one

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ew6cgdIsifE&feature=plcp
GunmastO says:June 8, 2012 at 10:18 pmA- is exactly what I got on the exam. xD
Crescent says:June 9, 2012 at 3:21 amI am so glad i checked back :D Im so glad your back Leo. I apologize for getting a little impatient when i really can continue to wait. I'm 14 i get bored and impatient easily but don't think i'm upset with you for leaving again. Thanks for coming back :)
Kenneth says:June 9, 2012 at 3:47 amTranslation wouldn't be a problem. They are going to translate it (I hope i haven't misunderstood what you meant.)

And about the comic culture... we don't really have one :3 I think this would be the perfect comic to begin one :D

Well, tell me if you ever change your mind :3
tkfilm47 says:June 9, 2012 at 4:29 amSorry Leo.
Adolf Mingan says:June 9, 2012 at 4:49 amGreat to have you back Leo. Do not give up, you have come so far with this wonderful piece of work would be terrible to lose interested in it. Curious to see what twists/turns you have in store for us fans.
Ian 'Grim' Alarcon says:June 9, 2012 at 5:20 amHombre, me alegra que estes de vuelta, me alegro de igual forma que estes bien. Hombre es un placer tenerte con nosotros nuevamente. en tu ausencia me repase el comic haha muchas veces! en fin! es bueno que estes con nosotros. tienes mi apoyo, espero poder empezar a cooperar contigo muy pronto! Arriba Leo Carajo!
Kenneth says:June 9, 2012 at 5:55 amIf you meant communicating, the man you'll be talking to is fluent in English :D

I've taken this from the description from one of Humons Niels comics: "It’s a surprisingly common misconception that everyday Danes doesn’t understand English."
Leo says:June 9, 2012 at 12:19 pmThank you.
Kenneth says:June 9, 2012 at 2:06 pmIs that a yes? :3
Quint says:June 9, 2012 at 2:19 pmLeo it's good to see you back but I can understand your absence and I knew my patience would pay off. Funny you come back when the internet was done at my place. I'd like to see the comic continue so consider me a donator as soon as I figure out the system's up.
Carl says:June 9, 2012 at 2:51 pmIts really good to have you back leo, its nice to hear that you still care about the comic as much as we do. I know you have other things in your life other than this comic, so we all wont rush you with it.
holyXcross says:June 9, 2012 at 5:02 pm^w^// WB LEO!!!! just go a head and do what ever you like! really, we all just a reader! you're and author! so the decision is with you!
Patches says:June 9, 2012 at 9:28 pmGlad everything is starting to pick up for you, Leo. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be doing any donating. Far-too-sporadic updates doesn't really guarantee that we'll get those updates promised to us early in the first place. Just being realistic. You know how it goes: "Life Happens". What can you do?

/shrug

Hell, I never would have even of known that you had updated here if it hadn't been for a FB status update.

Regardless, do what you want and don't worry about us. Look after yourself first and foremost.
Leo says:June 9, 2012 at 9:47 pm@Patches

I'm trying to wrap my head about your statement "Far-too-sporadic updates doesn't really guarantee that we'll get those updates promised to us early..."
That doesn't make much sense. If I get a page ready I'll post the link here for a week ahead for donators only before posting it for the public. If I miss a week of updates, it won't matter, next page -whenever it comes- it's still gonna be posted early for donators. That's it. Hope now it's more clear.

That's the function of the FB group & page.
Waffles says:June 9, 2012 at 10:53 pmSO you're basicall saying that the rest of the webcomic if for the people who donate?

Fatalerror094 says:June 9, 2012 at 11:05 pm@Waffles

No, He's saying that thouse who donate will get to see a new page as soon as he posts it. The general (non-donating) public will get to see it a week after he posts it.

At least that's how I understand it.
Fatalerror094 says:June 9, 2012 at 11:12 pmIf I got it right that means the general public will be one week behind the donators as far as regular updates (assuming he updates weekly).
lonebluemutt says:June 9, 2012 at 11:58 pmI offer my apologies in my lack of comments. In my defense i'm use to people who hate comments and i don't mean to offend you by not doing so. I love the story and would love to see where it goes though i am to broke to donate myself. Again im one who sits in the background but i love good stories so please keep in mind that this person in general means no offense i'm just use to letting people be. keep up the good work
Leo says:June 10, 2012 at 12:45 am@Fatalerror094

You got it quite right. :)
Anonymous Wolf says:June 10, 2012 at 1:11 am@Waffles

No shit dipshit, Leo offically hate you, and he doesn't appreciate your retarded fancomics.*Sarcasm*

Leo is giving the page out for the one who donates to him early before it hits the webcomic to the public.
Michael Lim Kee Hian says:June 10, 2012 at 6:35 amYAY your back!Im sorry if i did not email. I hope my parents will agree to let me use their paypal accounts though, i'm under 18.
Ryann says:June 10, 2012 at 11:00 amOH!i am so happy that you are back @Leo >< you comic was so great.
your new method is a very good,but for me i have no choice but to wait your comic to open for everyone,because my parents did not agree to let me spend my money on website...
Please Don't get me in the wrong way....i really wish to donate some to you...but i need to listen to what my parents told me...Very sorry about it...
i really enjoy your comic...the story is interesting than many other comic i have seen...
At last, I say sorry to you again...
Moonfire says:June 11, 2012 at 9:17 amYou write

"And since my last absence I just got 2 o 3 emails asking about my status out of hundred if not thousand of visits I got each day."

Many people probably feel you don't want to be bombarded with e-mails asking "what's going on?", "where's the update?", and so forth. They figure they will respectfully give you the space and time to take care of whatever your life has placed as its priority without sounding entitled to their free diversion.

So don't feel unappreciated by the lack of inquiries.
Firekeeper says:June 11, 2012 at 12:52 pmHuh. Just last week I was telling people to shut up and be patient, that Leo would return eventually. As a long time reader, I've gotten used to the Disappearance of Leonardo Vidal. And behold, a day after I said that, Leo returns. Am I god? Maybe. Welcome back Leo. You were missed. Thankfully the missiles hit Las Vegas instead.
Kare says:June 11, 2012 at 6:28 pmYay Leo!
I'm happy that you still want to draw AL. I'm totally okay with the new formula, even if you would make it viewable for donators only (that i am not, unfortunately) it wouldn't shock me, i think work must be paid back in any way, i'm just happy for you that you can still do things you love to do!
Rocker says:June 11, 2012 at 7:17 pmThanks Leo, good luck
GEo says:June 11, 2012 at 9:46 pmJust glad to have you back Leo. If and when I have spare funds I will try and donate to you.
TSG says:June 12, 2012 at 12:46 amLeo, can you tell us how the next page is progressing so far? You think the donators will see it when? In a week? Two?

Quint says:June 12, 2012 at 6:15 amSo I'm going to guess, make a donation via one of the three items in the support link?
Rebax says:June 12, 2012 at 7:38 amHi Leo.

I just found Alpha Luna and I must say, it's real great! I've read it all, love the story, the art, the characters, everything. The only thing I'm sad about is the fact I won't be able to help you by donating... Seriously, I'de love to be able to help you out, giving some money to help you out, it's just this great a story.

I've read somewhere in the last page that you disapeared a while. I'm glad you came back. I'm reading a lot off stuff like this every day, but this one is in my personal top 3 of the best online comic or manga, people call them what they like, I've been lucky enough to find. Please, keep on the grat work! It may not be much, but you've got one more fan!
N/A says:June 12, 2012 at 12:16 pmgood timing, i was about the leave the site for good.

it's great that you are back.
\Kishio/ says:June 12, 2012 at 7:27 pmHey Leo, i'm happy that you're fine and back. I started reading Paradigm Shift while you were out. It's pretty awesome, but I love AL more.

Everything in life requires some sacrifices, and I understand you, maybe isn't worth to sacrifice too many things for a free comic. I'm planning a Shonen Manga with a friend of mine, and I am the responsable for the drawings. The thing is: We didn't even started publishing and it is taking me a lot of time.

Well, good luck for you and welcome back Luna!
Ziggurat says:June 14, 2012 at 5:01 pmlike i said the website survived,however that means i must leave :[...if they are any more problems concerning money just contact me at 973-563-3459 and ill try to donate more...remember that AL cannot not die not while im young and alive...see ya fans all later...As for leo continue with the awesome work!!!
SnowWolf says:June 15, 2012 at 6:02 amthats beautiful Leo, keep up the good work
WhiteWolf says:June 16, 2012 at 2:03 amLeo, we all greatly appreciate your awesome story telling, and beautiful artwork. ^+^ I stumbled across your comic years ago, and have been in love with it ever since. That being said, as much as I and many others love this comic, you shouldn't worry about us. If you need to take some time off, or even want to call it quits, it's totally your decision. I also wish I had some money to give, but I have very little, and my parents would kill me. xD I can only hope that my love and support for your work will be enough on my part. If I'm able to come around to some money, I will be more than happy to contribute. ^^
Gerwolf says:July 6, 2012 at 2:12 pmi am glad to see u up and healthy Leo and i am glad you keep up ur work again.

Greetings from Germany
Daniel says:August 3, 2012 at 12:16 amI'm speechless. This can be a speurb blog and very attractive too. Nice work! That's now not actually a lot coming from an newbie publisher like me, however it's all I may just say after diving into your posts. Nice grammar and vocabulary. Not like other blogs. You actually recognise what you?re talking about too. Such a lot that you made me want to discover more. Your blog has develop into a stepping stone for me, my friend.
