As soon as I published the last page of I Will Survive I began to receive insistent requests for a sequel to the tragic story of Nick and Judy's breakup. Although I repeat several times that IWS is a standalone comic, this did not discourage those who were dissatisfied with the ending. Along with the sudden and unexpected return of IWS to the spotlight, even more requests came up for me to make a sequel.

So, despite my reluctance, I decided to accept this challenge. Inspired by one of the films directed by the American filmmaker John Landis, I drafted a storyboard and started to draw a sequel, which I called See You Next Wednesday.

To make you salivate about what's to come, here's a sneak peak:

See You Next Wednesday by borba

See ya!

Update: I want to thank a Reddit user who pointed out a typo in the text above. Thank you! I love you, redditers, despite all your hatred.

Esse seu comentário sobre uma continuação da historia "I Will Survive", que você postou acima, não sei se vc lembra de min e do meu comentário, que muitos também ficariam pedindo uma possível continuação ou reconciliação dos dois. hehehe

Boa Sorte.  :)

Personally, I wish Borba didn't use such a controversial topic. I'm with Nick, if I found out the girl I loved was pregnant, I'd have shouted it from the rooftops. However, this comic is heart wrenching to me because I wished I was married and had kids myself. I, for one, am hoping for, if not a happy ending, at least one that Nick remains with Judy. Call me Naive, call me hopelessly romantic, I just prefer to smile at the end of the day when I already know there is too much crap happening that's already negative.

While giving in might be good short term I think this wont help you long term. You need to stay adamant on your stances to keep your work functional. if you dont want your work continue dont leave it up for debate. You are just showing people they have more power over you than you do over them.

I'm a little torn right now. On one side, I think IWS is an amazing comic on its own with a very powerful message that doesn't need a sequel; on the other, I would love to know what happened and enjoy yet another high quality comic from you.
I guess I'll just do that: enjoy. ;)

Though I'm excited to see more, I just hope you aren't make this just to settle the minds of those who didn't like the ending you decided to go for.

Not to sound hipster about it, I support your choice and can understand wanting to give attention to each option, but only if it's your desire to do so and not to just stop people from complaining. You can't please everyone and trying to will likely result in pleasing no one. The idea of it being stand alone and showing how sometimes things don't work out and it's not always a happy ending, while also making both characters sympathetic in a rather taboo subject made it stand out; your conviction as a creator is admirable. It doesn't matter if I LIKED the ending, we shouldn't always need to LIKE what happens in stories; not all stories can be happy endings. I'm not trying to be a pessimist, I love things turning out well and happy for all :) but we shouldn't get so complacent with happy endings that we feel that us not liking an ending is something inherently wrong. No one should like the ending of this story...that's the point IMO.

Again, this is your choice and I'd never say no to more art from you. Even if you are choosing to do this because you are tired of hearing complaints, that's your choice to make :) just do what makes you happy.

I think your IWS comic is awesome! I liked the ending and if you feel the need for a sequel its your choice but don't let those crybabies tear into you because your not listening to them. There will always be haters but not every caters to them and you my friend are a strong one

I don't mind the idea of a sequel.

As someone whose biggest issue with I Will Survive was how it ended, I think the fairest thing is to reserve judgement until I see what the sequel is going to be. I might hate it, I might like it, I might be ambivalent again. But I don't know today.

I'm happy to hear about this and I really look forward to reading it, but I'm going to be on my guard when I do this time because I have no idea how it could go, and you Borba have a knack for doing the unexpected.

Now for some speculation, which is usually not accurate but I enjoy it anyway: that could be either Bonnie Hopps or Nick's mother behind them, but if it's the latter I'm guessing Mrs. Wilde is indeed dead and it is her ghost watching over the pair.  Her being dead also fits because maybe that's why they seem to be in a graveyard; Nick was visiting her grave and Judy knew he would be there.  And maybe that's what the title means: Nick tends to visit his mother's grave on Wednesdays and he always ends by saying, "See you next Wednesday".  And maybe at the end of this, Nick walks away from Judy without getting back together with her, but he says "see you next Wednesday", ambiguously implying he will see her again and so leaving hope for the future.

Very Nice theory, i'm a bit more pessimistic, maybe that's where they will bury the baby.

BeecroftA Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2018
It's possible; maybe the stress of Nick leaving caused Judy to miscarry, and so in a way they would both be at fault. I don't think this comic will be (as) tragic though, because otherwise what would be the point in making it? Tragedy has no place for a sadder sequel.

Whatever you choose to do, Borba, I will support you! In the end, it is YOUR decision. I didn't see a problem with the ending of the first comic, personally, or that it needed a sequel, but I still am willing to support what you have in store. 

Hang in there! Don't let all these haters get to you. Hug
