Still on hiatus while I work on pages and stuff. Felt unfair to not try to update or upload something in the time span that's passed.

As always, please refer to @cotcacomic on twitter for any news/updates/developments.

You can also consider supporting me on either Patreon or SubscribeStar! You get to see new pages as they're finished and I am working on more physical rewards. You get things like prints, stickers, patches (and other goodies I have planned).

Dear Shekets,

Saw your Twitter message of April 7 "@cotcacomic: I don't think cotca will be continuing anymore, sorry" ... that is such sad news!

That said and personal reader disappointment as to all the plot and art we will be missing aside: that cannot have been an easy decision, so let me take a moment to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful pages you put up, the great art, the rich stew of kabbalah, vampirism and sundry other ingredients into this, your very own and unique offering.

I am sure I speak for others when I say we enjoyed it and that we will not only miss it... but will happily think of the characters, the quest for grandbébés and your drawing style.

Whatever hardship brought you to this decision: take care of yourself and I wish you the strength to overcome what needs overcoming. Your story and art betray a sensitive soul with the power to survive.

Many thanks for what you shared and all the best, strength and happiness for you.

I really appreciate your comment and your kind words. I've not been in a good state of mind and I'm not sure when or if I'll recover from it.
I would really like to continue working on cotca but right now it's just not really something I can dedicate any energy to. I'm having a lot of trouble with drawing things in general, so all of my creative stuff has come to a halt.
As of right now, I don't really know what's going to happen.

Then do not pursue cotca right now: I saw your personal written commitment at the outset of the comic and also in the detail and work you spent on it.

I think I can relate to that drive. I am the son of an artist: I have seen that the true will to create/express is a deep-seated thing. But when it gets blocked, something even deeper is obviously at stake. So, if you need to hear it, know that it's alright: leave this aside and focus on just 'being' for now, work towards being okay and getting through. I give you a good chance of getting through, as well: your work betrays a wonderful mind and a humorous and somewhat irreverent personality. Could be worse, right? ;-)

Wishing you all the best. If you ever want to reach out, by all means do: batavian-one [at] protonmail [dot] com
