Two new fanarts by Cosmic Beholder
may be on hiatus, but that hasn't stopped The Cosmic Beholder
from creating two lovely fan arts. As his characters travel between worlds, both also contain characters from other comics:
: This one also features Abúi from Abúi's Travels
. This is potentially dangerous for Abúi as meeting faeries from her own world but a generation before puts her at risk of crossing her own time line and causing a time paradox. Luckily, her mother Aléas isn't in this picture. A larger image can be found on the Cosmic Beholder's DeviantArt page
Crossovers: Spun Off Meets Tales To Behold
: features Wakatonka, Neive, Finbar and Gavin with characters from The Cosmic Beholder's Tales To Behold
. A larger image can be found on the Cosmic Beholder's DeviantArt page
Thanks again, Cosmic Beholder! I enjoyed seeing these images a lot.
Fan art: Hairy Goblin by Aggie Janicot
Another fan art by my lovely wife, Aggie Janicot AKA Skycladstrega AKA Rona! She drew this hairy goblin a few months ago while we were out at our caravan by the lake.
Aggie has a new comic out at Square One Comics
. The full version of this hairy goblin girl is at her DeviantArt site

No new comic this week, but have some fan art
Life has caught up with me again this week, with my day job leaving me no time and energy to work on your favourite naked faerie comic. This is likely to continue, so we're going to take another break again, just like last year. After that, Spun Off
is going to appear on its fall/winter schedule of "whenever a page is ready".
To tide you over, we'll have some fan art and other stuff in the blog.
To start with, here's something that Cosmic Beholder
made a few months ago. It's cute, and it reminds me that it's time to check up on Aléas, Scallop and Asper again.

On a question that was asked many months ago
In the comments for Page 29
, reader T asked:
Are Neive, Finbar and Gavin in a loving threesome relationship or are they just good friends who like casual sex?
and my answer was
I'm going to get to that eventually but it's somewhere inbetween. They would argue it's the same thing, anyway.
Mostly I think it would have been Neive arguing that it's the same thing. However, I have had this question on my mind again, since I read this article in The Atlantic: When Taking Multiple Husbands Makes Sense
. I'm now leaning more definitely to their relationship being a committed polyandrous one, because the society these faeries have is pretty much exactly the kind that this article refers to: one in which (some of) the men are exposed to a lot of danger from hunting and warfare. Also, considering how different Neive looks from Aleas, it should be quite clear that their mother, too, had two different men in her life at roughly the same time. I think it would be fun to explore that a little more.
Taking more time off
Sorry all, it's not happening this week either. In a repeat of last weekend, a busy Saturday was followed by me feeling like crap on Sunday with a splitting headache. To be honest, also, I have too much on my plate and the only reason I got so many episodes of Spun Off
done this summer was because my wife and I spent most of our weekends hiding from the world at a campsite with very little else to do. Now that winter is coming, that's not working and it will be a while before it does.
I've been rethinking the way I approach my comics, and it looks like the thing to do is to build a largeish buffer again before I start publishing new updates again. So rather than trying to set a specific date for when the next episode of Spun Off
will show up, I urge everyone who likes the comic to Subscribe to Spun Off
(ComicFury membership required) or use the RSS feed
. As mentioned before, you may also find the Belfry entry
for Spun Off
Thanks all for reading the comic in 2012! And see you some time next year!
