New False Positive digital comics need new covers.
I added fresh paint to some existing art in addition to generating a new illustration for the covers of upcoming digital collections. I'll let you know when the new releases hit the digital streets.
False Positive is going on webcomic hiatus.
Tentatively, I plan to announce updates regarding more FP around October 2018. It would be awesome to commit to more specific targets now, but I'm not ready for that yet.
Top of my list, I need to take a break from working on False Positive. Easier said than done. That's because my brain never stops working on the stories. I've spent many sleep deprived nights with the brain worm of a story demanding my attention.
Also, presumedly after some manner of a break, I need some time to plot and scheme about where to steer FP in the future.
Currently on the False Positive brainstorming list during the webcomic hiatus:
- Update the design of the website
- The website begs for an overhaul. Perhaps something can be done about that.
- Research printing a book/ crowdfunding the printing of a book
- Between you and me, I'd love to launch a Kickstarter in October for a "best-of" volume of FP.
- Complete the preliminary work on a bunch more stories
- So many plot outlines, so little time. Scripts need to be authored. Breakdowns need to be sketched out. The sequence of stories needs to be nailed down...
- Reconsider everything
- It's time to think about the entire endeavor and how it might evolve. Nothing's off the table.
In the meanwhile, for whatever value it may or may not hold, I plan to author some blog posts, sharing some background information about the production of FP on here. Also, I will continue to share more extensive behind the scenes insights along with ongoing schemes regarding the future of False Positive along with other creations via Patreon.
The bottom line. I plan to make more False Positive and I hope that you'll all come along for the ride.
Thanks for the support!
I just wanted to boost the signal for anyone supporting me on Patreon who might not receive notifications--I'm making changes to the Patreon reward system and content.
Check out my Patreon page for the deats.
In spite of the date, this isn't pointing to a joke.
To Whom It Might Concern,
Thanks for reading False Positive. I appreciate the ongoing outpouring of support.
I’ve been meaning to update you about the status of the worsening posting schedule for a while, but I was trying to put it off until we finished Last Ditch. While we don’t have much left before finishing this story, I felt compelled to explain myself now—something those keeping score at home will note that I seldom do.
Through the last couple years, the obligations of real-life have restricted how much time I can afford working on False Positive. Then, in November, I started yet another new job. The job is awesome! It also claims a heck of a lot more of my time and energy than my last job—which was pretty demanding in its own right—and I project it will do so for at least the next year or two.

For better or worse, I make F.P. when I manage to carve out time for it. So, that’s why we’re left with the erratic posting schedule. It’s also why I suck at managing my Patreon account—something I hope to remedy soon.
I don’t plan to stop making the False Positive webcomic.
After Last Ditch wraps, I do plan to take time to regroup, dedicate some hours to Patreon, and then, change how I make F.P. moving forward. Can’t wait.
There you have it.
