After 9 months of being on hiatus Ava's Demon is scheduled to return this January, which means within the next 2 weeks! Who is getting pumped for some more Wrava action with me?!
>>
>>79069668

Has it actually been that long?
>>
>>79069668
Is Ava's Demon that good of a webcomic that /co/ is so hype? I've literally never read a page.
>>
>>79069668
I'm seeing no recent update on the website or twitter saying it'll be back in January, the newest news on it are from ages ago. I hiughly doubt she'll keep her word this time. Anyone remember when she promised her patreon donators that the comic would return in September? See how that worked out.

Didn't this comic end because of an exposed nipple which caused SJWs to go into full meltdown mode?
>>
>>79069830
>Is Ava's Demon that good of a webcomic that /co/ is so hype?
It has sparkly colorful art and some fappable characters, including lolis, but that's it. Which is more than enough for many /comrades to be hyped. The story and writing are bland and juvenile, the artist literally came up with the story when she was an angsty teenager and it's very evident in the writing.
>>
>>79069889
Not quite. This is just the run of the mill kickstarter hiatus in overdrive.
>>
>>79069762

I can't get hype either. All the excitement I've had for the Strategos 6 confrontation dried up ages ago.
>>
>>79069889
No, that's the "waaah tumblr!" /co version of it. The artist had an Kickstarter that made over 300.000 bucks so she's taken the year off to work on the book, updates will resume once all rewards have been finished and sent.

Ironically one of the stretch goals of the Kickstarter that people donated for was the promised regular updates.
>>
>>79069983
>Donate 200.000 and I will update 2 times a week for a year!
>Oh, you donated 300.000 instead? Too bad, that wasn't the goal. No updates for you this year.

thank you.

I'm not sure if I like this "storyboard" format for the comic. Paneling can do wonderful things for a story.

The hype died time ago. Now the only webcomic that gets me excited for updates is KSBD. Ava's Demon has been down far too long.

It's got lovely art, interesting characters, and there's just enough hints at a deeper lore to keep you interested without giving away too much.


Also every couple of chapters shit gets fucking real as fuck.

Notice the "around". I'm expecting a blog post explaining the delay in February and an actual update in March. Maybe April.

IIRC she worked as a storyboarder professionally for years, so it's a format she's comfortable with.

True, there's a lot of clever things you can do with paneling, but she doesn't seem opposed to pushing this format in new and interesting ways as well.
>>
>>79070804
That's why I said recent, even that update is 2 and a half month old. She's been so bad at keeping deadlines before that I'd have a hard time believing she'd keep a date she announces even just the week before for something, much less several months before. The lack of any updates since that really dampens my hopes for a January return. You'd think there'd be some sort of "I'm back soon!" note somewhere if she really intends to go back to work this month.
>>
>>79070983
Naw, at this point she's just sitting back to see how long she can delay the update before the idiots on her patreon finally start canceling their pledges. I'm giving it a couple years before enough of their credit cards have expired that the money will stop rolling in.
>>
>>79069668
Why bother? It's already dead. Community has moved on. She should stick to what she's doing best, designing Spider Monster Girl Mini Bosses in Kinckstarter Indie Games.

I'd drop that comic if I were her, the fact that Muffet is more popular than her comic will EVER be should be devastating for an artist.
>>
>>79070998
>but she doesn't seem opposed to pushing this format in new and interesting ways as well.
95% of the panels are chest-up or shoulders-up portraits of characters talking, exactly as seen in your pic related. That's the opposite of pushing the format.

I've heard a lot of different claims about why the comic's been on such a long hiatus, not sure if all of them are true or not.

The tumblr attacks happened for sure. She got contracted to do some art and animation work for Undertale, I believe. Her work computer got fried, I think. Supposedly she got married at some point and there's rumors she might be pregnant. I seem to recall there was a family crisis like a niece getting sick or dying or something. Etc etc etc. All while trying to get all the books and kickstarter rewards and shit produced.


It fucking sucks that the comic's been on hiatus for this fucking long and I've definitely had to look for other comics to fill the gap... but at least it sounds like she's got some reasonable excuses and isn't just faffing about.

Wait until February to start panicking.

>>79071202
That's so sad, to have your whole magnum opus overshadowed by a single secondary character that you've designed for someone else's project.

If she was at least one of the lead character designers on the game she'd have a decent claim to concept art fame (temporarily) and an excellent portfolio roster, but nope, it's just one character. And nobody who plays the game knows or cares who designed that particular thing anyway.
>>
>>79071395
We got this explanation in June on her forums:

Michelle is currently hard at work putting together the Kickstarter books and other rewards for the many backers that helped make the second Ava's Demon Kickstarter such an amazing success! And that also includes working with the extremely talented Studio Yotta! to create the Ava's Demon animated short.

However, Michelle is doing all of this work almost entirely single-handedly and, as a result, it will take some time before it's all finished and updates can resume.

The hiatus is expected to continue for an as of yet undetermined amount of time, sadly. Michelle and the rest of the staff appreciate your patience thus far and are hoping that you can stick it out with us a little longer!

Please do not spam the Q&A forums or other parts of the forums with questions regarding the hiatus as they will be deleted or locked.

Thank you!


THEN she apparently got married and had to buy a new computer? Not sure about the exact timeline since the updates have been so sparce.

The niece had the flu... what's up with all the exaggerations in these threads?
>>
>>79071432
One wonders.

She's probably the second most unluckiest webcomic artist after poor Aaron Neathery.
>>
>>79071432
>Her work computer got fried,
>Did she step on the seal of an ancient sumerian god or something?
Because having an old work computer break down just never happens to other creators.
>>
>>79071770
How do you expect her to work with no computer? No wonder she hasn't been able to get the Kickstarter finished, she makes the book digitally..
>>
>>79071629
Please tell me you're being snarky and aren't actually comparing Michelle having to buy a new computer to Aaron Neathery being gravely ill, yet he STILL keeps making his comics on time several times a week.
>>
>>79071770
Are you like not aware of all the other shit that's happened to her?

She got married and a niece was born/got the flu. What other shit?

Every single excuse she used could be delt with in less than a month. She's not poor, so money are out of the picture.

But honestly, who cares anymore? As >>79071440 >>79071202 said, she should just let it go, how the hell can you carry on when some random design you did some time ago just exploded and overshadowed the work of your life. This begs for some reevaluation of your goals as an artist.
>>
>>79072650
hey, guy, I just posted her saying it was habbening in January. I have no opinion on the updates.
I also think people are going overboard with the whole Muffet>Ava's Demon claim.
The undertale fandom cares more about furries, skele-porn, and Pretty much anything else than it does Muffet, whereas AD had an entire fandom and fanart around it. Sure plenty of people enjoy Muffet, but it doesn't exaclty cast a shadow on the webcomic.
Undertale having a greater response than AD, I'll give you that.

Last update was July 22nd. It's only been six months, not nine.

Still far far too long but let's at least be straight here.
>>
>>79072650
The design is only popular because the game is popular. I wouldn't really be too bothered
>>
>>79072451
That's it. Broken computer and niece with the flu in the same year? Her life is true hell and we should give her more money.

Am I the only one who thought the vivisection scene was really forced "look how F'd up this comic is" shit?

It was one update inbetween the hiatus

Get your facts straight before telling others to be straight
>>
>>79072844
>Last update was July 22nd. It's only been six months, not nine.
The update in July was after several months of hiatus. So yes, you can get technical and say that she had one 3-month hiatus and then a second six-month hiatus with one small update in-between, but anyone can figure out that it's just the same long break.

I mean, if you stay away from work for half a year, come back to work for one day and then bail for the remainder of the year again, do you really think your employer wouldn't still count it as you skipping a whole year of work?
>>
I keep seeing these threads. What is this comic even about?

Jealous people whose webcomics never took off: fuck off with your whining to some other threads already. Michelle works harder than any of you do.

A misunderstood girl who is possessed by a sexy fire demon, futuristic space stuff and space cults. Heavy focus on the demon part.

A demonic alien queen possesses a little emo girl and keeps fucking with her.
They finally understand each other and help each other out.
Emo chick becomes very non-emo and helps alien queen connect with her lost army, each member also possessing someone.

Ava's a good character. She does have a good arc, even if she has little backstory.

Gil and Maggie pale in comparison. There was a whole chapter dedicated to giving Gil a sympathetic backstory, but no one gives a shit about him. Maggie is too enigmatic to really sympathize with.
