Got this in the mail from Angus Oblong, and though it does not involve a comic this time, it does involve meeting one heck of a funny/morbid comic demigod, so... Human race, Come meet Angus Oblong himself! Live. Nude. Thursday, May 4th is a reception with Angus Oblong himself present! Click here for info: www.quab.ca Punch and pie. It's very close! It's in Alberta, Canada. When you get to Boise, Idaho head north.

Update or die?
When I first looked into making a webcomic, back in 2002, the one thing I heard most often was, 'Update regularly or don't bother at all.' The one canon rule I could suss out in webcomics was that you must update often, and you must hit your schedule every chance you could.
These days RSS (Really Simple Syndication) (picked the least ugly page with an explanation) has taken the thunder out of that sole commandment. In the process, it may have opened the field in a way unique to webcomics, allowing us to do more with serialization than we ever could in traditional media. On-demand was the first real revolution in online thinking-- On-supply is the next, and in terms of theoretical discussion, we're missing out on the potential. Blogs have gotten there, so have news services, but many webcomics are still stuck with outdated thinking that's inhibiting their true potential.

This is just to let folks know that our agami break is over and the third arc cover just went up. There is no posting schedule for Malakhim, so those who link in, please adjust your links accordingly. I usually manage to do at least one update a week but the best way to describe us is 'As-completed'. RSS for the win! If there is an RSS feed we're not compatible with or not using that you'd like us to comply with, please let us know via the webmaster email.
We'll be putting out a new set of buttons and banners to go with the new arc in the next couple of weeks.
And yes, the cover art is the same quality I'm striving for in the comic itself.
