Fisheye Placebo: Ch1- Part 5 by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Ch1- Part 5 by yuumei

Fisheye Placebo is back after a 3 year hiatus! In the past, I had hurt my hand with Repetitive Strain Injury caused by overworking. Now the pain limits how much I can draw each day.

But I didn’t want to give up so I hired a team of amazing 3D artists to help me continue the comic. Now, instead of drawing things from scratch, I paint over the 3D characters and backgrounds they’ve created, which saves me a lot of time and hand pain.

I need your support to keep my team going. We are all artists who need to make a living, and you can help us keep creating comics by becoming a Patron on my Patreon. As Patrons you’ll get special previews of new comic chapters as well as HD files of the comics! And best of all you won’t have to wait another 3 years for the next chapter :)

I found this comic about a year ago, and absolutely loved it. I was sad when I found no new chapters were coming out, so I'm really happy to see this now! I know I'm commenting a little late, but I just wanted to say I admire your work. Please don't overwork yourself!

Please don't push yourself. Take care of your health and wish you all the best on finishing your comics. Your comic is the best!
RSI is the worst thing glad you found a workaround. I'll be looking forward to your work!

I actually like the new style it seems surreal

Glad to see this return! I’m not glad about your having developed RSI, though, but it’s cool how you managed to work around it! I don’t have money to donate to your Patreon though, but I wish you and your team the best of luck!!

Wow! Just finished binge reading this series after having just found a small snippet in a thumbnail on YT.

This has to be my favourite comic of all time! The characters, the art, the symbolism, the geeky humour, it's all fantastic! :D

I found this comic in the middle of a sleepless night a few months after I started college. It completely enraptured me; the art, the story, pacing and mood. Everything. I stayed up nearly all night tracing the comic back to the first page and reading it through. Turns out I had started with the last strip, and I would only get one more before you had to go on hiatus. A tough thing to hear, but I completely understood.

Fitting then, that I should find this comic once again on another sleepless, a few months after I've begun a new chapter of my life. So much has changed since then, I have changed so much, but in all that time this comic was never far from my thoughts. It has colored so much of my style, so much of my outlook and passion. THIS is what has put me on that path I'm now on. And I had hoped beyond all hope that someday, Fisheye Placebo would grace the world once more.

And so it has. The universe truly rewards the patient and the faithful. It would be my honor to support this comic, meager though my offering may be. I'd say I can't wait for the next update, but has history has shown, I and the rest of this community assuredly can. Take as much time as you need to make this comic how you want it. We'll all be here.

WAAAAAAAAAAAA?'s with the bad guys? hng so the first part/preview was a foreboding of this. Oh heart is not ready.
Someone has been posting Fisheye Placebo to Webtoon's in the discovery section and I'm not sure its you. This is the link just in case.…

"And best of all, you won't have to wait another three years for the new chapter." -- Sort of suggesting we'll have to wait another three years for a new chapter if we don't support you on Patreon. I'm sure that's not actually how you meant that, though. It's nice to see this finally return, three years has been a really long time to wait. I can't support you on Patreon even if I want to, but I hope those who can, will. Even after this much time I definitely didn't forget that you've had trouble with you hand, so it's good that you still have your team after this long. I'll keep hoping the best for you, and hoping for more chapters too.
