    This is not the end of Jillpoke Bohemia. I’m too fond of the characters to leave them in limbo indefinitely. They’ll be back, in one form or another. You just won’t see new strips on GoComics/Sherpa after today. I really do have mixed feelings about it, because I got more feedback here than I ever got on Facebook or any of the other sites I used. But it’s time to move on. Thanks, everyone, for your support. I hope you will check out the new illustrated Jillpoke Bohemia story pdf advertised earlier. I hope it will serve as a nice coda to the strip, for those who won’t be following it in the future.

    It is not.

    A webcomic and a prose piece had sex and his was the result—a hybrid form I’m calling a prose comic. It was a way to combine my love of writing and drawing in a fashion that’s more satisfying than doing either/or. Below is a link to a PDF file containing Bohemian Babylon—excerpts from a faux oral history that was never written. It was a fun way to tie up some loose ends for the Jillpoke Bohemia webcomic while I try to figure out what’s next for the characters. I hope people will have as much fun reading it as I had putting it together. Enjoy.

    It’s not an end to Jillpoke Bohemia, just the finale to “Vol. 1” – or the comics equivalent a season finale.

    Thanks, y’all. I’m leaning toward keeping the dynamic duo together, at least as friends and musical partners. Doesn’t mean they mean they couldn’t each branch out with side projects. (And by “side projects” I mean taking other lovers, natch.)

    Thanks for trying, but it says this could crash my computer, and I don’t want to risk that. I want a process that’s safe, quick, and relatively easy. Perhaps there isn’t one, but I’ll keep looking.

    I can’t find the operating system discs, if I ever had them. The version I’m working with is 5.1, if that helps. Any tips you can offer would be greatly appreciated. And thanks for your continued support of Jillpoke Bohemia.

    Friends, this may be one of the last Jillpoke strips I post to GoComics and Sherpa, as I think I will be cancelling my membership before it auto-renews next month. I appreciate the audience my comic has found here and hope you will continue to follow it at http://JillpokeBohemia.webcomic.ws/, but I don’t see the point in continuing to pay for a service that really hasn’t brought me any closer to syndication or publication. But the real reason I’m leaving is that I just am feeling really constrained by the family-friendly thing and want Darby to be able to drop the occasional F-bomb or take her bra off in the bedroom without my having to censor her. In the meantime, I want to take some time to try to learn how to do the strip with Manga Studio, or, failing that, find a way replace the awful new Paint program on my new computer with the older yet superior version from my old PC. Thank you all for your support, and see in the funny papers (I hope). – Shawn Cote
