When you’re burned out, drawing a comic – already an exhausting task – about a character being burned out is nowhere near as therapeutic as you might think. It ends up being a constant reminder that you’re burned out, and can make it all so much worse. So of course I’ve been hesitant to resume the “Just Five More Minutes” story, after being away from it for a few months.

Realistically, I could have left the story as it was, and just started a new chapter. But I have some fun bits planned that won’t fit anywhere else, as well as some character cameos. To make things easier, I’m breaking it all into chunks. Most will only be 2-3 pages. One, however, currently clocks in at 7 pages, which I may just cut because I doubt I’ll have the time or the energy to draw it, once I get there.
