We quite understand Ed, but we're very glad to see this up just the same.

Try to keep your chin up Ed.
I know depression can be quite awful. Heck I know I had to deal with it. I know what it is like.
Just remember we are here and watching this. I always enjoy this.

Like Gentalon I'm no stranger to depression. I know it's tough, but please don't let it discourage you. Remember, for everyone who bothers to comment there are probably a dozen appreciative readers who just never leave comments anywhere. You're producing something unique and worthwhile here, and you should be proud of that.

just a reader

maybe put the comics on topweb and see how many vote for it ?

plus, it seems that until now you had to subscribe and login to post a comment so that might have been turning a lot of people away from doing it

the stories are great, the artwork is unique and very well done, keep at it, the silent majority are still here

just a reader- Thanks, I am on it, have been for a few years now. I get very little positive response from it. Nightshade just isn't understood by most people. It does not fit most if any of the common venues, even though it seems to at a quick glance. most readers of this comic see the sex and nudity and quickly label it "porn" and have no interest in reading the story. Naked bugs with boobs is all they see and move on. Unfortunately, this is one of those comics that you have to make an effort to understand. And from the few responses, and the plunging ratings, I think its run it's course. As I said a while ago, this was an experiment, I'm guessing the experiment is over. Don't worry, We'll finish this arc, but I think after we run "The games we play" Dreamwalk will end.

Ed, I'll have a longer response to this later, but I'll just make one point here, which is that the falling ratings just lately may be in response to the slow updates, so that could be a vicious cycle...

OK, well here's the long response...

I'd be sorrier than I can say to see the end of Dreamwalk and Nightshade. In their own small way they've brightened my life over the past eight or nine years, and I'm perversely grateful to the unlamented Portal of Evil for drawing them to my attention in the first place.

I've had a lot of fun helping to adapt the current storyline and co-write the next, and all I can say is, if Nightshade really does end with The Games we Play then at least it'll be going out on a high note.

I do hope you will change your mind, though, and not just for my sake. It may be a niche interest, but managing to maintain a position in the top 150 science fiction webcomics in the entire world has got to count for something.

I really don't need to tell you that I'm a huge fan of your art and I'll be sure to follow whatever you choose to do, but whatever happens, a piece of my heart will always dwell on the planet Cyeatea.

First comic I check each day looking for an update. Nothing else like it on the web, and I read a LOT of web comics. Please keep up the good work.

Meanwhile, in the cause of trying to drum up some publicity, I've put up a brief description on Reddit...

OK, Thank you for all you've said. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens, but at the moment it doesn't look good. I'll try and post an update before the weekend. Ed.
