BEFORE YOU ASK ANYTHING, PLEASE READ EVERYTHING IN THIS POST!!
First, here is the Kickstarter! It’s running RIGHT NOW! Please help us reach funding! – http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/celesse/strays-comic-volume-3
Now for the Q&A. If you haven’t had a chance, please read our Closing Comments post. I know it’s a little long but it explains a lot.
Second, please use CTRL + F to do a quick search and see if your question has already been asked and answered. We anticipate getting a lot of repeat questions so we want to avoid re-answering them over and over.
And finally, here are some questions that have already been asked or we anticipate getting, so we’re answering them in advance:
1. Why is the comic ending so soon? The story has just begun!
Please read the Closing Comments post for more detail, but the TL;DR answer is we’ve reached the original stopping point of our story and we’re ready to move on to new endeavors rather than continue on endlessly. And we do have an 8 page epilogue planned to close things up a little tighter.
2. Will you ever return to Strays in the future? I want more!
It’s not impossible! The story definitely can continue, but we want to move on to new things for now.
3. Will the StraysOnline.com website stay up?
Yes, it will.
4. Will you be making a new comic? Will you tell us if you do?
Algy and I both have ideas for new comics, so yes, it’s very likely. We’ll announce here and on the Strays Facebook page if and when we start anything new, and you can always follow our art pages on DeviantArt (Celesse is here and Algy is here)
5. Wait, what happened with that old guy that knew Meela back in chapter 3???
Please skip down to the “Edits” section of the Closing Comments post for the answer to that.
6. What will happen with Feral’s curse? How does he get cured? Will he ever read his journal?
Feral’s curse is permanent, there is no cure. He will never get his original memories back, but some day down the road Jyaku would likely unlock his journal for him to read. It would be more of a curiosity to him since Feral is more practical than sentimental and he has no attachment to his old life anymore, but it’s hard to spell out his reaction in just a few sentences. He’d probably at least visit the old village to check it out.
7. What about Vihki? And Meela’s mother?
Vihki likely mourned for a while, then moved on with her life. Yuen just disappeared so there wasn’t much else she could do. Meela’s mother is a story point we’re keeping under our hats for the moment.
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, please feel free to ask any other questions you have and we’ll do our best to answer :)
