So I finished the thumbnails for Chapter 5 of my comic. That may not sound like much, but this is actually a first for me. For the previous chapters, I never had a complete script and never more than a few pages thumbnailed in advance. Also my thumbnails were tiny two-inch high doodle blobs with no dialogue. When drawing the actual pages I had a lot of delays where I would get stuck on a scene or piece of dialogue or a layout. Now for this chapter I drew each thumbnail the size of a half sheet of printer paper — big enough to write all the dialogue in. So this serves as the script as well. You can see a blurry photo on my my tumblr post, including the page that was partially eaten by my cat. :D

I had thought this was going to be an absolute monster of a chapter. There was a lot to fit in, and I wondered if I'd have to split it into two chapters to keep it from getting too ridiculously long. But after thumbnailing everything it came down to around 66 pages, more than 10 pages shorter than Chapter 3 (the longest chapter so far).

I have to say, I'm super excited for this chapter. My hope is that with the whole thing more or less laid out in advance I can be a bit more efficient when drawing the actual pages. My plan right now is to start updating before the end of February.

A lot of people have been commenting lately about the comic. I really appreciate it. I figured a status update was in order.

I guess TV tropes tells the truth indeed! XD YOu have devotion to make this webcomic keep going, and I love that! Good luck!

Now, say it with me: Altruistic!

I just found out last night that you're updating No Rest For The Wicked again! Hurray! I've been checking the website every so often to see if you had, and then I saw I had a new email in my inbox saying there had been new updates!

I was so glad, I almost shed a few tears. Seriously though, No Rest For The Wicked was the very first web comic I ever read, back in 2006 right after joining the military. It's still one of my top ones to read. Keep up the great work.

Wow, I could have written the same thing! Well, except for the military.

I love No Rest For The Wicked, and I have just now found you here on deviantart, andrael. Definitely must have a look at your gallery now.

I'm glad to hear it! Haha, reading through the older entries makes me remember all the times I went to the USO on base in Afghanistan and waiting hours for the wireless internet to work, just to catch up on what I had missed out on.
