Wow.
One page posted in the year 2013.
Eight pages posted in the year 2012.
You really are too busy to keep doing the webcomic on a regular basis.
I wonder how many of your former readers have declared this webcomic as abandoned.

Arioch,

I just discovered you yesterday, when someone on reddit posted a link to your FTL Tech & Tactics page. For the life of me, I have searched and searched for that reddit comment, but it is lost... for now, until I stumble upon it in 3.7 days.

In any event, your comic Outside is fantastic, and your art style/technical ability is amazing, and your script is top notch. I love the story, and I love the look. Do not ever give up, because for this poor guy who has never really read web comics at all (other than xkcd) you have made me a fan !

I will probably check out all of the links to other artists, because I can imagine that those who follow in your footsteps do not do so lightly, and thus craft amazing works as well.

Only time will tell, and then we will see where this takes me.

Wow. I happened upon Outsider a couple of months ago. Since then I've read it through four times and devoured all the extras and universe material. This is incredibly well thought out, and I'd put it near the level of "The Mote in God's Eye", in my opinion the best first contact novel. I'm looking forward to new pages.

I've been reading for many years without saying hi. I just wanted to say thanks for the many excellent comics you have given us and hope you can get the time to continue the story more frequently.

Cheers and best of luck!

Good to see an Outsider strip once again. The characters, designs, and artwork are always breathtaking. Thanks for sharing your brilliance with us!

I love this comic. It is my honest opinion that it is the best scifi comic I have seen so far. It is weird to follow it in time lapse mode over the years. Maybe a more agressive donation campaign might change that ?

It's hard to make a go of a webcomic. Did they go on to another comic somewhere? This was pretty good and then it ran down and stopped ticking. Kind of sad to see it half done.

Probably one of the best, if not THE best sci-fi comic out there in terms of technical skill and appeal. I cannot say enough about this comic.

I started reading this comic about a year ago, but lost track of it for a while. I just recently found it again, and though it hasn't updated much, it is still one of my personal favorites. Now that I have it saved once more, I will be checking back often!

Keep up the great work!

I'll admit to enjoying the more frequent updates myself...but as a writer, I know how the creative process can be, especially when you're trying to do other things at the same time. Write the story that feels true to you.

Having reread certain parts of the comic, I love how certain parts of the ongoing plot are kept from ol' Alex via the Loroi's telepathic communications: one has to fill in the blanks about the stellar-political implications of humanity's intrusion upon the war scene, the personal conflict between the military, the diplomats, and reluctant allies, and how perturbed the Loroi are with Humanity's telepathy blocking effect, which apparently stretches out for an AU at least.

Jardin better play his cards right, or the Loroi might decide to preemptively eliminate a potential weapon against them.

I am gratified to see the quick update. I hope this leads to more such events. As others have mentioned, the artwork is stunning but the update schedule is difficult, especially the long delay without communication. I look forward to where this is going, and hope that watching the character motivations over time is a long and enjoyable process. As they say in my business, setting customer expectation and then meeting it is about 80% of customer satisfaction. Another way to put it is under promise and over produce.

I suggest you contact Dirk I. Tiede over at Paradigm Shift (http://www.paradigmshiftmanga.com) and seeing if maybe you can streamline your process some how. He commits to once a week on Tuesday. Meets that and works ahead for life's emergencies. He had a delay around the holidays but he communicated that and explained when things would start back up. He even posted some planing drafts for pages showing that that the planning was going forward. He is right now replacing those with finished art. His media is different, in some ways there is even more attention to detail in his art. He is in his 4th chapter, but he was once where you are and can offer legitimate suggestions that I cannot.

This was pretty cool; too bad it just trails off without an ending. I kept thinking there would be more but now I realize it's gone dead so I'll quit checking. Better luck with the next one!

The art is phenomenal, but I find the pace a little...irregular for my tastes. I like the work,, really I do, but when you leave for a few months and come back with 20-odd comics added in the interim, it's a little disheartening.

But don't let my nay-saying get you down! Keep it up d00d, 4 teh sake of humaniteh!

Your comments says "... not dead (yet)"; at this rate of publishing art, is there really much difference?

Much longer, and this strip gets deleted from my bookmarks to make room for something else.

As for QUALITY: first rate, keep it up.

Tell ya what: next art post, I donate.

I have read your comic several times and still cannot get enough of it. It is a powerful story worth exploring and has much potential. If I may offer a suggestion (although I'm certain you've already thought of it), if you are looking for faster ways of eventually publizing this and to complete the story, then I suggest you consider converting this comic into a novel form with visual depictions, like Tony Diterlizzi's Search for Wondla, which incorporates drawn images to depict the world alongside the words. Outsider might be well received if it followed a similar format, especially if readers could actually see the world that you see. And do it fast. Lots of people out there might steal your idea. Keep up the good work.

Fantastic and beautiful.

Finally, I hope we'll soon get to read why the comic is called "outsider"

Also, the look on Fireblade's eyes as she scorted him out was sort of... pleading.

So, page 89 is not showing, there is not link to it, please advise. Also, why nbo way to more directly send you an email?

Love the artwork. The stoyline is intriguing! I enjoy webcomics. They tell their stories in a way that is different from both text books and movies. Your plotline is a new variation on the theme explored in the "Through the Looking Glass" books by John Ringo or his Posleen series. In his, and other mainstream works, the warring nations seek out humanity for alliance and then work to destroy or dominate humanity. Here humanity seeks out the warring entities. Interesting take.

Great stuff! I remember reading this comic years ago, but it was apparently on hiatus then, so I stopped reading it. Still awesome! Very excited to find out about Alex's situation. How will his quarter's be? Will he find them odd or uncomfortable? Will he be separated from the crew? And how will he spend his days? And does he get a hot alien love-interest? All good questions that need answering!

Much as I love a good battle (and the impending destruction of the Bellarmine's remains), I'm frankly more interested in the developments surrounding Jardin's diplomatic status and how he interacts with the aliens.

Glad to see you're updating again, and so frequently too!

Wow, I want to admit that I was completely awe-stricken by the superlative quality of your story and your art, but yet I was also more than a little surprised by the relative obscurity of your work. I'll be sure to visit this site often in the future, and I'll also try to pass the word to more potential readers. Please, keep up your magnificent work :D

I only recently stumbled on your work and I was instantaneously blown away! The art and storyline are SUPERB! In fact, I am at a loss as too why no major animation company have come along and offered you to make this an Anime or full length movie...I am ever expecting your next update! Please finish this story...

Very well done. Story and art is top quality. Keep it on!

I followed the links from "atomic rockets" to find your comic. I've always had a soft spot for space opera and think you've done a marvelous job. I hope you finish the story. All the best. Si

An amazing piece. The links page is full of wonderful stuff. My only complaint is the lack of updates! I want more!

I can safely say I feel a thrill each time I see you've updated. I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't like a faster pace, but you can't rush quality art. Keep up the great work, I love what you've done here.

It is very cruel to get me addicted to your drug, and then snatch away my supply!

I feverishly await the chance of a update in the near future.

Good comic, too bad it died. I've checked this site over and over and it's obviously over. Try doing something less ambitious next time and maybe you can succeed!

I think it's time for you to make your own forum.
I've been waiting in the Digital Webbing moderation queue for my account to be approved for more than six months and I can see from other comments both here and on your facebook page that such circumstances are quite common, but even without that personal inconvenience, there's also the fact that you have a number of non-Outsider projects both new and old which could use their own subfora, such as your "Second Six" artwork or the Homeworld Shipyards.
I do not feel that the Outsider board on Digital Webbing is the appropriate page to discuss such things, nor do I feel that the Digital Webbing forum is adequate even for the discussion of Outsider, since the approval process for a Digital Webbing account appears to take years at a time.
Please consider it.

This is the first scifi comic I've actually liked.
