No. We're still here. Still doin this thing. It's hard sometimes, like singing for the dead, but deep down I don't draw this for recognition or as a step toward a career. I do it because, if I don't, no one
else will. If I decide that I don't care anymore, that I'd rather sit around and play video games, then Mike and Kestrel City and the whole world just cease to exist. I've sadly lost contact with
Sarah, artist for Sidelines over the past months. I'm afraid she may be done with it already. Currently unsure how I want to proceed with that part of the story, as being aware of the events of Jove's
disasterous soccer game against the Pierceton White Knights is going to be crucial to the understanding of the subplot beginning next issue. More on that as it develops.
