Is it just me or does it seem like more and more comics are going missing updates and going on semi-permanent sometimes unannounced hiatus. Even I'm guilty of this.

I'm just throwing this out there, but I think it'd be cool if we could organize a Comic Update Day. Nothing spectacular, just one day out of the year where we can get as many comics as possible to update one page. Not a filler page, but one real page for every comic possible.

The thing is, in order for this to work at all, alot of people would have to do a LOT of networking. This can't be a “Nate organizes everything” like the Comic Remix was. Everyone who knows someone doing a comic has to talk them into updating their comic, and talk them into helping getting other people update a comic.

I'd like to think getting people who have been missing updates to update just one page might kickstart more updates.

Does anyone else think we can do this? Or am I just a raving madman?

If I didn't make my comics in advance, I probably would have suffered the same fate.

I think part of the problem…at least for any comics going AWOL this month is that it's March. For those still at school/college, this is the “Month of Doooooom” where due dates start creeping up. Those who don't fall into that category, I couldn't tell you. You are right though. Some of my normal reads have done this or slowed down. While it gives me the excuse to look for more comics, I still want to read the comics that caused me to register here in the first place.

I think your idea is possible as long as you can build enough support.
That's “Dr. BlkKnight” to all of you.

Well, I've never really done this.
But it sounds like a good idea…

Get every comic, even ones that have stopped to update?

Hmm…

Well, I would do it as long as it's not on the weekend. Weekends are not good update days =p

I currently started my on hiatus because I am done with my current issue however and want a break.

Though I honestly have no idea how you would get a lot of people to do this.

DD needs to make an official Update day where you can make a banner and on that day banners of people that have updated appear on everyone's comics randomly =p

I can't update for awhile. I lost Paint.net. The only software that I can use to make my comics.
