i'm afraid it has now gotten to THAT point.
university means that for the foreseeable future, i can only update one page a week - i'm not sure when i'll be able to work on a new page, so i need to keep as many pages in my buffer as i can. i hope you'll continue to read hemlock m(_ _)m i don't want to have to put it on hiatus or something, i hope you'll agree that one page a week is better than no page.

thank you again to everybody who came to see me at MCM expo! and sorry to those who missed out on books, i sold out of #3 on the saturday and of #1 and #2 on sunday. but not to worry, it's now available for order on my lulu store! if any of you are in london i've also ordered some more to stock at gosh! comic shop in soho.

also - silent readers, speak up! i want to know what you all dressed as for halloween!

---

Hemlock #1, #2 and #3 are now available to buy online!
they can be bought through lulu.com at my storefront here: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/mildtarantula lulu accepts both card and paypal.

@DaughterOfOwls: haha i wish i could do that special effects make up with latex and stuff, i would be the grossest zombie!
@dizzysosilly: aww, thank you :) and a peacock! that's pretty unusual o:
@Obani: haha i admit, i would have known you were from homestuck but not the name of the character. thank you! <3
@Mythee: lots of homestuck this halloween! >w<
@Shaula: i actually did consider costume design, but the problem is, i SUCK at sewing XD and nobody really wants to make your clothes for you unless you're already a senior designer. there will be more sisu next week! ^^
@Rararaccoon: aww, thank you so much <3 and yay! i like hearing the songs people associate with hemlock >w< they're always so different to my own.
@BrightLights: ahh, but my pages are very short pages! and i'm sorry to hear that :(
@Clouds.Of.Rabbits: i'm happy to hear that!
@LuluWLi: haha you think so?
@Kathleen: ahh yes, the infamous updates of dresden codak ;p although he has a lot more per page than i do i guess XD
@jello-bomb: i would like some shoes like that, i'll admit it. and ooh, a gorilla! that sounds like a costume you would overheat in though...
@6offee: aww, thank you! haha a lot of the patterns are inspired by other things though, so i wouldn't want to take credit >w<
@Seshii: hooraaay! i want to see photos of your flowery witch hat!
@ariana: that sounds really cool!
@Chick With the Hat: we don't have exams so much as "fat load of coursework" ;_; four projects and a thesis by may, which sounds like a long time, but i really only have 17 weeks of school time left to get it all done in. and wow, that sounds awesome o:
@Roni: hello silent reader!! you're the first toga person i've heard about for this halloween ;D thank you!
@Wormwood Rain: aww, i'm sure they'll understand. and i'm really happy to hear that :D i hope they help you get better lol
@xkookooberryx: SO MANY HOBOS! although that does sound kind of awesome haha!
@GhostyKing: haha yeah i didn't do anything for halloween, i was dead after 3 days of mcm! getting up at 5:30am on a saturday...awful, awful D:

One page a week is totally fine. :) I'd still read it even if you had to go as far as updating only once a month, I love your comic. ^^
Oh and I dressed as a stitched up zombie chick for Halloween, LOL.

November 3rd, 2011, 4:09 pm

One page a week is amazingly better than no page at all, but I'm certain that you'll retain most of your readers even if you DO need to go onto hiatus. :) I know I'll stick around.

Also, I was a peacock. >u<

November 3rd, 2011, 5:03 pm

I'm perfectly happy to wait for a brilliant comic like this. Don't worry about it. I read plenty of comics which update maybe every once and a while sometimes, and the fact that I can count on Hemlock at all is refreshing. Keep up the good work.
I went as Gamzee Makara. Nobody knew who I was.

November 3rd, 2011, 5:20 pm

LOL OBANI.
I also dressed as Homestuck. Female Equius. Upon request from a friend who thinks my face is great for Equius. Which it was. I guess. xDD I was with two friends all they, who were dressed as Jade and Rose! 8D

November 3rd, 2011, 5:53 pm

Oh noes! Only one Hemlock a week! D: THE SUSPENSE WILL BE MURDER wait no that's Sindri.

Also, hey, it's Suul. Anyway, university can be infuriatingly occupying sometimes, good luck with school. I'll be waiting with excitement for when multi-page updates resume. In the meantime, you can make up for this with MOAR SISU. By the way, go into costume or clothing design. His cape (and basically every article of clothing you have drawn) is absolutely amazing. :3

November 3rd, 2011, 6:10 pm

Your comics are always worth the wait.

Also, I have been meaning to say this for a while but this song makes me think of this comic every time I hear it.

November 3rd, 2011, 6:40 pm

Are you kidding? Every other comic I read is one page a week. >:U
You spoil us too much. Take your time!

Oh, and BTW Lumi, you need to be more respectful! I mean, you can say whatever you want to Sindri and Simo I don't really care they're jerks anyway BUT NOT SISUUUU D:

Also, I didn't dress up as anything for halloween. I can't, I'm mourning for my grandma. :C

November 3rd, 2011, 8:17 pm

One page a week is totally cool. And the only way I would drop this comic would be if smackjeeves decided to never alert me of updates and it would be more of a matter of forgetting than dropping.

November 3rd, 2011, 8:32 pm

braidy lumi! sisu is pretty sketchy-looking.

November 3rd, 2011, 8:33 pm

I've suffered worse for my webcomics...

I read Dresden Codak! :P

Of course I will read with one page a week. That's nothing!

November 3rd, 2011, 8:50 pm

Man I also forget about the flashbacks thing. Every time! Nice shoes, bro.
I didn't dress up for Halloween because in Australia no one does. :( But I went to a Halloween/birthday party as a gorilla.

November 3rd, 2011, 9:14 pm

I love the variety of patterns you put into clothes. This comic may be the most stylish of all that I read.

You have nothing to apologize for! You're giving us this gorgeous story, and it's amazing whatever the update schedule is.

November 3rd, 2011, 9:21 pm

Gotta love the art as always! I dressed up as a witch for a halloween party. I got inspired by Lumi's hats and did one for myself decorated with flowers :B

November 3rd, 2011, 10:20 pm

I was little red riding hood for halloween. The catch though was that i wore a hat/mitt combo thing over my shoulders that was made to look like a wolf's head and arms. It was little red after the wolf was taken down.

I understand, college is such a tyrant around exam time. ;~;

But we'll all keep waiting for you, as long as it takes. This comic rocks my socks. <3

Also, I was Link as a zombie hunter, complete with Hylian shield, aviator sunglasses, and a fake shotgun. >=^D

November 4th, 2011, 12:55 am

I realized I'm a silent reader!!! I wore a toga I had left from a toga party earlier this year. And your comic is incredible! Thank you for writing it!

November 4th, 2011, 1:20 am

I'm in college, too. I've been neglecting my Harry Potter fanfictions since it started. I think my fans will eat me if I don't update soon.

In other news, my aunt bought me Hemlock volumes one and two as a get better gift (been sick lately)! :D I was so excited when I got them in the mail. I was like, "Lulu? What on earth is Lulu sending me? Oh. Oh wait. I know. I know what this is. /tears package open/ Oh my gosh, it is ;w;"

November 4th, 2011, 1:38 am

Take as much time as you need! Education comes before updating your comic. c:
Besides I'm sure lots of your fans will keep on reading your comic even if it updates less. It's still super awesome. Cx

Annnddd for Halloween I slapped together a last minute costume and was a Victorian hobo. My friend was a cat hobo and her sister was a normal hobo. HOBOS EVERYWHERE. 8DDD

November 4th, 2011, 3:29 am

One page is DEFINETLY better than no page! And Im so hyped to see Sisu's face! (even though I saw it at expo :P) This halloween was spent recovering from the previous weekend of costume related tomfoolery :D

November 4th, 2011, 10:32 am

Silent reader here~

I was so excited for this page you don't even know. Sisu is my honey. <3

ps. I dressed as a white plague doctor anteater looking thing in a cloak and yellow/red scarves.

November 4th, 2011, 12:16 pm

I love the clothes you draw for this comic! The feel so believable and yet still magical!
Don't worry about the pages! Pace yourself and do well at University! :)

November 4th, 2011, 12:50 pm

I found a link to your comic through another comic's website and WOW. This is one of the best things I've read in...forever! Beautiful art. I love your style and brush work. The typography is also fantastic. I read all of your archive in one sitting ravenously and now I will faithfully check each week for updates. Brilliant work!

One page a week is infinitely better than none, I look forward to it all week! I love your comic, thank you so much for sharing with us. Take it easy with school, we all know how that can be :)

November 4th, 2011, 10:21 pm

Aw, at least Sisu sounds nice enough ^^ I hope he stays that way...

And I didnt dress up for Halloween T_T didn't have time for a costume, but I did watch zombie stuff!

November 5th, 2011, 12:07 am

Really hoping that Sisu is as nice as he seems. He's from the day people, who taght Baba Yaga magic for free, right? So he can't be all bad, right? I hope?

November 5th, 2011, 5:21 am

love your comic

found your comic a week ago and I've already read through and am looking forward to the updates! Usually I don't comment coz I never know what to say but ... thanks for sharing your awesome talent, it's a treat to read :)

November 5th, 2011, 9:55 pm

Heyo. c8 What a shame I couldn't go to the expo. D: I hope you had fun~

Also, happy late Halloween. :D I was a pirate. 8D

November 6th, 2011, 9:35 pm

Its been awhile since I've commented!
The suspense is killing me! X_X
Awesome job on Hemlock!

November 7th, 2011, 5:28 pm

I don't really think I need to say this, because everybody else already has, but of course I'll wait. I only checked this once a week anyways, so I won't be missing too much.

I went as the grim reaper. With sparkly black wings. I scared an army guy XD
