Season’s greetings, everyone! Thanks so much for just being here, and for being you. These are still kind of tough times, and I hope we’re all taking care of ourselves to take care of others. And don’t forget to recycle any gift debris!

And by way of gifts, I present the announcement of another prospective sister series to Zebra Girl, hopefully arriving sometime in the latter half of 2022! Witch Warp is the story of Vibrissa Sendo, an abecedarian sorceress who takes a chance and finds herself isekai’d like Hell from her comfortably cultivated life because, yes, she had to chase the butterfly. The story will take us back to the magical Outlands, past the Subfusc Plains and the Pits, as Vibrissa and her friend Lion find themselves playing a part in an endangered exodus on a quest to find home.

If this gets off the ground it will be a more self-contained series than Zebra Girl (as in, less than eighteen years long, because I’m old now and that would kill me), and tentatively followed by The Curse of Clarity.

But how does this sound to you? It’s only a gift if you want it! I’m anxious for feedback, so please let me know if this is something that you would be interested in seeing. And have yourself a wonderful holiday season, and a happy new year! I want for time to bring you all the best.

- Joe

Sounds cool. Love the flying weed-wacker, btw.

Glad you like it! In fact, the original title was "Witch on a Weed Whacker". But, hey, too many syllables.

I guess a weed-whacker is just a garden-broom.

The handle on the weed whacker makes total sense. Hard to imagine less technosavvy witches maintaining a sufficient death grip on just a stick.

And in answer to your question, a loud HELL YEAH to more of your art and writing.

I'll definitely read it, assuming my RSS reader doesn't drop the notifications between now and the time it comes out (or I figure out another way to make sure I don't miss when it comes about)

I love seeing some of your wackier and intricate designs, both character and architectural. Plus I love your little goblin designs.

"Never forget you asked me, and deep down you knew what you were asking for."

Very excited. I absolutely love Sandra In The Outlands, and can't wait to see you get Really Weird with it again. Also looking forward to more Wizard shenanigans. My secret hope is Harold makes an appearance somehow. Him and Gregore are two characters I've always been curious to see if they get a look in again.

Also, that looks like Pooka Zin, who's always a fun fellow

I like your art and stories, so if put out something new, I'll get around to reading it eventually. No promises I'll keep up with it, but will binge on occasion.

This is awesome. I keep coming by zebragirl.net more or less out of habit when I do my rounds to check online comics even though it has ended quite a while ago. I miss it. I have withdrawal symptoms. I would devour every page. And I can't wait.

So if you need any more encouraging feedback.. Hell yes!!!!!

I've been checking in here daily since the strip ended, and voting every day. To say I'm looking forward to another strip set in the Zebra Girl universe is a vast understatement. :-)

Calloh! Callay! Hip hip hooray! I'd love a trip back to the Outlands with new and old characters to meet. You're the best Joe.

Looks interesting. I take it that Pandora and some other characters will be making appearances?

Totally a gift! Will absolutely read it!

OK, uh, not to be crass, but... The candle that shadowy, hooded character is holding? It looks a bit... dickish...

Definitely looking forward to seeing more of your comics...I check back every month or so in case something appears. (Chuckles)

Joe, It's everything I wanted but never dared ask for. You brought joy to me life for next to 2 decades, and I wouldn't feel right asking for more of your life - but if you are doing it because you want to, I think its safe to say that a very happy dance has occurred.

Also, I love how keen Lion is (if I'm right that Lion is the kit in her kaboodle?)

Oh that looks so nice! But I'm a bit confused, I assumed your next comic would be full-on fetish fuel after the last part of Zebra Girl. I fully admit I stopped reading because some parts of the story and their implications made me really uncomfortable (yeah, I'm talking about the citywide giant knockerfication...), but I know I am in the minority there :).

Believe me, Gabs, I never intended for Zebra Girl or its sister comics to be "fetish fuel". Ever. That plot point was only my way of acknowledging that my drawing style had changed over time to favor curvier figures. It wasn't something I was proud of, it wasn't meant as a deliberate appeal to salacity, and it definitely wasn't meant to be a prominent facet of the comic's character. It was just something I noticed, and which I wanted to address canonically by devising a reason for.

I was hoping that it would be mostly ignored, or at least forgiven, but I did offend some people, which I truly regret. If I drove you away then I apologize, but I hope you believe me when I say that my intentions as a storyteller are not tied to sex appeal.

This would so much be a gift, as long as you are enjoying working on it! If that ever changes please let us know, but in the meantime I am super excited for the possibility!!

Regretfully, w/o much comment.

I am repelled by how much "vibrissa" makes me think of how a feminine toy might be branded.

Looking forward to seeing (Well, I'll happily pay for it!) The Omnibus!

Err . . . Not from beneath it though.

I don't care who throws me.
