I need to post and let those interested know why I haven't updated in ever, so here it is: I've been unable to make myself make pages towards a webcomic ever since infinite scroll has come so heavily into play. I initially started trying to convert all of Lint and Lintier to webtoon scroll format but that was too labor intensive and while reading through old comics felt like some of the humor had become... dated. Sometimes in a very cringy way! I felt like it was too much story, too, like, it'd become so heavy with plots and characters it was like trying to drag around a sack of 5000 doorknobs. So I eventually reinvented.

This may seem weird, but... I changed formats to Webtoon, and am using the characters from Lint in the story... and it will eventually tie in. It's not exactly a continuation, but it actually is. Plain as mud? I'm sure! It'll eventually make sense, and the plot is basically complete while I've only just begun. IF you're interested, the link is Here: https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/scenes-from-the-library/list?title_no=196054

Scenes from the Library is a Mystery at its core with Fantasy elements. There will be Romance, Drama, and heavy doses of Comedy, because always. Anyway, that's what I've got. Hope you're ok!

Good to see your avatar on the front page! Sorry you're having problems. Hope they sort themselves out, somehow. Never give up, never surrender, as a great man once said.

A Mystery with fantasy elements? F*ck. Yes.

I’m willing to read anything you’re willing to write. Please proceed.

I want to know that Fang does not win the Love Triangle! Your written prose is always good!

Interesting idea! I didn't want to write the rest of the Lint/Lintier plot in prose, but may eventually do so.

Just wanted to check, are you planning to maintain a copy of the original Lint? It may sound cheesy but I really wouldn't change a single thing about it. Lint has been a real treasure for me as I've read and re-read it over the years.

Sorry, I just saw this!
Yes, the original Lint and Lintier will remain in its original form here on ComicFury. Thanks for liking it!

Hi Colby! I've read your work as a lurker for 10 years now, always come back once in a while for updates. I've really enjoyed both your comics and prose writing, so I'll definitely stick around for this newest work! Might be nice to eventually see what happened in Lintier, but I'm excited to read whatever you want to work on. Thanks for all the great stories growing up! I'll return to the shadows again now.

I'll let you know I do have the next Lintier page about 75% done.
Puck 12th May 2019, 7:23 PM
Wait... But.... Your main website is down? So all the prose bits are gone? But.... I loved those. ;----;

I'm so sorry! Maybe I'll reupload them somewhere sometime...

Hiya, I came to do my catch up plus re-read lint but you haven't updated in a while and your main website is down (plus lint). Is everything ok?

Yes, everything's ok! I have Lint here on ComicFury. I didn't want to continue to pay for the website while I was inactive. I hope to be less inactive during this coming year. Thanks so much for checking in.

Regarding your old web page:

Maybe you should add some warnings in prominent places and you definitely should remove links to your old website's URL;
The provider apparently is reusing the URL for a dubious site which I would recommend to open only with all security shields up.
This is a common manoeuvre to get high ranking from lingering links to that URL, and in some cases to catch unwary people for malware infection.

Ha, infinite scroll is overrated (not only for comics). Can be nice for some sort of styling, but there are loads of other layouts and formats which are nice too, (e.g. panelled pages). Also infinite scroll heavily restricts, e.g. no mingled wide-screen anymore, or no width at all.

And there is no benefit in converting panels to scroll: Even a complete redraw does not really work, a complete retelling with new storybording would be needed - gargantuan work for no real gain; panelled pages are just fine.

Don't fret over the humor, or the comics in general; your storytelling in Lint and Lintier is a nice mix of gags, adventure, epic, and several other things. Certainly you can do many things better now than in the past, and maybe you just want to try new things, but that does not invalidate the old stuff.

Anyway, have fun with new things :)
