Donation Goal Not Reached. Now What?

First of all, a big thank you to everyone who donated or bought a book.  You are the people that make doing a project like Walking the Lethe worth while.  Unfortunately there wasn’t quite enough of you to keep us going through this transitory period  in my life.  Now I’m sure if i kept the donations open and asked again for more money we would eventually reach our goal but then I’d have to start all over again and beg for chapter 12 funds.  I had hoped that Walking the Lethe had reached the point where it would be self-sustaining.  Unfortunately I appear to have pushed it out of the nest a bit too early, but it was better to give it a fair chance than pre-measuring the coffin.

So what happens now?

For the moment nothing.  Chapter 10 will be posted as it is mostly finished.We’ll start posting it as soon as the cover is done, probably next week.  However Chapter 11 will not be in production and Adwarr will be moving on to other projects.

At the end of the month we are moving to San Francisco and I will be starting a new job.  Once we’re established (aka, my wife also finds permanent employment) we’ll see if we have funds for making comics again.  I love the medium and definitely wish to return to it.  Although I can’t guarantee that the comic we start will be a resumption of Walking the Lethe.  However, it will be weird. I’m not capable of writing “normal.”

That said, Richard’s story will be told, one way or another.  I am planning on novelizing Walking the Lethe, so I can share the rest of the story with you. To keep up with my next project and/or new news about Walking the Lethe, please keep us in your RSS feed or visit our other website: Fallen Kitten Productions.

Thank you again for your donations and encouragement. Your support means the world to us. All of your donations will help out settling Walking the Lethe accounts, but if you’d like you donation returned please email me.  I’d much rather have your good will than your money.

Sad to see that the comic/graphic novel will be on hiatus until further notice after chapter 10 is finished(that’s what I gather from your story, correct me if I’m wrong though). I’ll be looking forward to anything flowing from your pen in the future no matter how crazy, weird or twisted it is ;D. I hope that if WtL ever gets a reboot though that you’ll be able to hire Adwarr again, for the sake of continuation in art style.

All the best wished to you and your wife in your new home and job(s) over in SF. And by all means, keep my(humble) donation. Don’t worry, my goodwill isn’t going anywhere =).


Agreed. This is one of the best combinations of story and art that I’ve had the pleasure of reading. Sad to say I don’t have a lot of disposable income, because this is a project worth supporting. You’ve got a fan in me for whatever projects you imagine up; I want to see where your mind can go.

As webcomics are very rarely a particularly long-term fixture on the net, I understand when one’s life comes to an unexpected close. It will be sad to see the story untold, at least for now. That being said, life definitely comes before entertainment. You guys are awesome, and I do wish you the best.


I can only echo what the others say; One of my favourite web comics is facing an uncertain future and it saddens my heart. I really hope that you pull through and that this labour of love finds its feet again.


How close did you come to funding the new chapter? If you decide to attempt to raise money to fund future chapters, you might want to consider kickstarter as a fund raising platform. I’ve seen several projects successfully funded via that route, and I think Walking the Lethe might do well there.

I have really enjoyed this comic and hate to see it end… thanks for telling such a great story!


Thanks for all the fish! I enjoyed it, bought a book, and wish you well on whatever is next. Peace :)
