It seems I haven't updated the journal here since I launched PS Part Four back in 2010.  This was leading to confusion.  Just to clear things up, I'm transitioning PS of from a weekly webcomic format to a monthly batch update schedule, posting a new scene or so the first week of every month.  

This coming Tuesday (June 5th) will be the last weekly update, and the final page of the current round of thumbnails.  I will post the final version of this scene as the first batch update on July 2nd, 2012.

See you back then!

I've been a fan of PS for a long time, but never commented under the strip because I've never known what to say.

But I saw the message under it, and some of the most recent stuff posted in here. Had to say something in response, so I will.

I hope you're doing alright, and if you aren't then I hope you talk to someone. You're too damn good a writer and artist to lose.

Hey I love you comic and was wondering is there any more update any time soon

Probably not for a while, due to problems with the neck and back. Those are a writer (and a drawer's) lifeblood, and any problems can permanently put someone out of work.

Just checked your site for PS and realized it hadn't updated in a while, so I wanted to post here to made sure you're OK.  

I'm sure you're crazy busy, but I just wanted to let you know that there are people that love your work who would also love to see more.

You're amazing, and I hope you've had a great summer/autumn!

The website keeps denying me access to the various pages of your comic, Mr. Tiede. Can it be fixed? I was really hoping to go back and read some more of it.

What is going on with your comic? You have not updated it in some time.

He has other works to do (for a few months), so all we have to do is wait.

How does a long-time silent fan introduce oneself? I first found Paradigm Shift back in 2009-2010 and immediately began following with zeal. Update schedule aside, I was initially frustrated at how long it took to reach the First Transformation Scene™, but I quickly appreciated how much skill it takes to draw out the entire psychological dimension of the titular paradigm shift at both a realistic pace and yet without sacrificing an imminent tone, something very few writers I've encountered seem able to do. The Moment is a reward to be earned, not simply Xeroxed out to the audience on demand. I can only imagine how much patience it took on your part. =P

Likewise, your drawing style is lovely; obviously Anime-inspired, but with enough of a personal flavour to make it stand out as unique. In sum: stellar work all 'round, and my apologies for not watching you sooner, as I am certain I perused this gallery well before I joined dA.
