The End is Near

Cover by Bobby Mono (disregard the cover price)
I've been putting this off for a long time obviously, but I decided to finally make a post letting everyone know that after 5+ years, Candy or Medicine will end with the next issue. There are a number of reasons: personal problems, unemployment (and money troubles that go along with it), lack of motivation, the comic has served its purpose, lack of sales/interest, etc., but I won't go into all the gory details. I've had a lot of fun making this comic, have met a lot of really great people and seen some cool artwork. I want to thank everyone who has been involved or supported it. I'm not necessarily quitting comics altogether, and there are a couple unfinished books I'd like to publish in the next year or two.

To send it off in style, I'm going to make a mega-sized final issue. It will be a FREE downloadable PDF. I have a lot of artwork in already, but I'll take everything I can get if you want to still be included. The deadline is April 15, and I hope to have the issue out sometime by the end of June. Thanks again.

This is sad news! I consider myself lucky to have been featured, alongside so many other talented artists, in the pages of Candy or Medicine.

I'm sad to see Candy or Medicine go...

Well, I thoroughly enjoy Candy or Medicine and will miss it. Does this mean that they last issue will ONLY be available in PDF? I would like to follow whatever comic endeavors you may have to come. Keep me updated!

Sadly, all good things must come to an end. In this situation, it's quite understandale that there would be a desire to move on.

In closing, I would say that it has been a pleassure working with CorM. I only wish the best in future endeavors.

Thank you.
