Hello, this is Iniphineas, creator of Land of the Sky.
This is a long overdue explanation for what happened to the comic and well... myself. To many fans who don't follow me on social media it seemed like I just disappeared. Some of you were and still are angry, which is completely fair.
First of all, the reason the comic was deleted was actually a combination of things. Between being stalked and family members giving out personal information, my mental state deteriorated to the point of severe depression and anxiety and I hit rock bottom. To my sick brain I had only two options: Either take my own life to end this constant fear or cut out the part of my life that was contributing to it the most. Deleting my accounts was the best way to hide and protect myself, so I thought. Since then, I've gotten help. I don't think I'll ever be free from my depression/anxiety, but after a few years of treatment I'm doing better. Feeling better.
Now comes the hard part that I don't want to have to say... I am not able to continue the previous Land of the Sky comic at all. Over the summer my computer crashed and I lost everything. I was only able to save a handful of things. I didn't want to start from the point I left off anyway, but the fact that the option isn't even there anymore is pretty painful. At the very least I wanted to provide a free pdf for the people who still wanted to read it, but I can't even do that now. I'm sorry...
However I have no plans of abandoning the story. I really do love my characters and my little world I've built. I would like to start over and create a new comic with some changes for the better of course. I've even come up with some ideas for a video game.
I realize some of you are still going to be upset and I understand. If you'd like to leave this group that's perfectly fine too. Thank you for taking the time to read my comic and I'm sorry for disappointing you in the end. I'm still unsure of where I'm going at this point, but I will use this group to update those who are still interested in following the story.
Thanks for your time,
[I do have some physical copies left and I would be happy to send it to those who want to read the old comic, just send me a note.]
