Waiting For Bilbo status update

Hello all! I know some of you have been wondering at the lack of updates recently, considering the launch of the first Hobbit movie! After a lot of discussion, Shane and I have decided we need to put Waiting For Bilbo on indefinite hiatus. Both of us have way too much workstuff going on these days, and I'm having to cut down on the number of webcomics I create.

I was going to shut down Waiting For Bilbo completely, but Shane has convinced me to leave the possibility of the occasional future strip open, just in case.

For the record, I did see The Hobbit on opening day, but found the 48 fps way distracting. I intend to go back and see it in regular format in a regular theater so I can properly appreciate it.

Thanks for your support, all.

I'm sad, of course, but I totally understand having too much to do and not enough time to do it. If you return to this I would love it, but don't feel pressured at all! :)
