Metapost: It’s Overlookween! Booga booga booga!

Ohhhh, what’s this, rising from the dead? It’s zombie El Santo! Sppoooookkkkyyyy!

Yup, I’m still around, and yes, this site is still alive. I hate to be one of those guys who chimes in with a “Oh, man, real life’s been busy y’all, and sorry I haven’t updated my blog” folks that get made fun of on … er … MadTV? Is that still a thing? But it’s all completely true. October was nuts. I had to be out of town for a while, a close friend of ours was hospitalized, other traumatic crises happened (some serious illness in the family), and here we are.

I’d hoped to post Part 3 of my MS Paint Adventures: Homestuck review by now, but as you can see, there was no time to read and no time to write. So again, apologies. However, I can also tell you that in the meantime, I was immersed in the scared arts of clowning and puppetry, two of the major themes in Homestuck. Which should give me far more insight into the inner workings of Andrew Hussie’s mind than any other online review ever! (But really, I was learning it to entertain kids at a Halloween party. Though… well, I’m not saying that I’m taking clowning more seriously these days, but I will be at the Seattle Clown Jam next week, so….)

As of now, though, the Webcomic Overlook is off the unofficial October hiatus. So… yaaaayy!

  1. Welcome, back, El Santo! Life gets in the way of creating comics. But I hope all is well with your friends and family.

    • All is fine! The family illness issue is still looming over us, and I might be pretty busy the next couple of months (I’ll be headed out of town again to visit my sis on Thanksgiving, plus I think I’ve got a couple of clowning gigs in December), but I’m going to give November the good old college try!

  2. Admit it, El Santo – the real reason you haven’t updated is because you got sucked into the Homestuck fandom. Soon enough, you’ll be telling us all about your shipping grids and OC fantrolls. 😛

    Seriously though, welcome back.

    • That was part of it. Not the fandom necessarily, but in trying to finish Homestuck that meant not reviewing other webcomics. 🙂 I’m actually going to review a couple of non-Homestuck webcomics to get back into the groove, and then tackle Act 6.
