>I mean, no, not really.
SO, I didn't quite have it in me to pull off the double update I promised, but I don't want to go back on my word TOO MUCH, so instead there will be a double update this coming Tuesday, the next update- 2 pages that, while not initially planned as a pair, I am still very excited for. Thanks for reading, and sorry about that! Life finds a way, to get in the way. o'_>'o)_b
Zach, are you trying to convince us or yourself that you can regularly do more than 1 page/week?
Just accept your limitations and adjust to reality. Maybe build a buffer with the extra page you can get done every month or so
==AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT==
Lucifer's ideal voice...my initial choice would've been Anthony Daniels but he's my Doorman...J.A.R.V.I.S, maybe? (Movie or series, I don't care)
I feel like the reason Zack spent so much time on hitball is because.
a) Many of the more important faces there are gonna become more important down the line.
b) Zack realised he'd left the muggles too long out of the spotlight and tried to make up for lost time.
He tripped over himself trying to shove them back into our faces for when their plot threads inevitably bear some fruit.
I expect SU is going to do the same thing once the whole cluster thing is done. It's been all about the gems for a long while. The change back to beach city will be abrupt.
>a) Many of the more important faces there are gonna become more important down the line.
Yeah, Zack likes to foreshadow things, we know. This is an issue.
>b) Zack realised he'd left the muggles too long out of the spotlight and tried to make up for lost time.
Maybe he shouldn't have spent a year on the train then. Doesn't mean he has to make every kid a special snowflake now and give each one a character development arc.
You also forgot
>c) he missed half of his updates because he doesn't have a buffer in place
Mainly annoyed he's still planning to post two on monday. When will zack learn that if he holds one of them back he will have a nice single page buffer to make sure he stops missing updates.
I was hoping for some reason that he'd be on point with updates this year, I don't know why.
Anyone know what Zhack's longest streak was?
You were hoping the same reason I was. He said his resolution was to make this the best year yet for paranatural, and in my head it translated to on time updates. While I understand it's a lot of work, and easier said than done, I still can't help the little bits of disappointment from rising up.
It's like a broken promise. Promises aren't legally binding or anything, but it's still disappointing when someone breaks one. Zack has broken so many promises that I don't really go on his word anymore. From his actions I know he's good for a page a week. Anything more is a pleasant surprise.
Maybe he's just the kind of person who slacks off if he has a buffer, and only goes seriously when the pressure is on, which leads to biting off more than you can chew sometimes.
I have more than enough experience with that mindset myself I'm afraid.
Anon's probably in mourning mood because Snape joined Dumbledore in the afterlife for realz just ereyesterday, I can understand that.
I don't know why so many people acted like that when that update first dropped, or even now.
It's not like a character being named Prometheus means they're actually anything like the guy from Greek mythology. It's just an evocative name because Light theme.
It wasn't private before? I didn't know that...
Though, I doubt that there's no way Zack's gonna use Patreon without giving away his face (see pic).
That's honestly not that uncommon a sentiment for artists whose works suddenly balloon in popularity.
People will often overstep their boundaries and feel entitled to be your "friend" just because they enjoy your work.
I have this faint memory reading somewhere in archive dot moe that some crazy fans had pestered Zack (plus one family member) too much on Facebook several years ago...I'm not sure if that was legitimate (and thus really disturbing) info or I must be imagining things.
This meme needs to stop.
We don't know what his Facebook is. Someone found one that had a ginger guy that could be Zack but he was balding so we don't know. The one picture Zack ever posted of himself with the top of his head looked kinda like him but we don't know. Someone needs to go to a con and tell us what he looks like.
Anyway, no it didn't happen. At least not by anyone from here.
I thought that might be the image but it wasn't. Someone might have it.
I can't believe one of you predicted the resolution to the Ghost Train arc 3 months in advance.
You mean the one with the cat, right?

Note that the date of release was June 2014...his attitudes might have changed since then.
You can blame the "Max & Isaac" wallpaper that started it all. Also, this: [ https://twitter.com/search?q=imax+from%3Aparanaturalzack ]
I also find it interesting that the Max/Johnny mania on the Tumblrsphere - even though their priorities and moral compsses are totally as different as oil and water - seem to parallel the collective infatuation on Max/Isaac as Chapter 3 happened of the same magnitude...
Exactly, he could'vve done that but he didn't. He should have known the consequences the moment he sent that picture. I mean, anything that sticks on the Internet is there FOREVER.
A little bit more I'd like to add on the Max/Johnny = Max/Isaac Tumblrmania parallel.
