So ends the second chapter of Power of the Universe. Definitely not gonna miss drawing all those grunts, yeesh. Get outta here!

Here's a PROGRESS MAP up to this point.

I feel like the chapter came out pretty well. It wasn’t supposed to take this long, but at the same time that helped it get more refined. Was it worth the trade-off? Probably not. I’d like to find a middle ground between time and quality. It’s been really fun, though, and I hope it continues to be.

On that note… There will be a Chapter 3, but it’s gonna be a while. My next step is to write it. Then I plan to make a few strips before putting any out. That way I can make sure everything’s how I want it to be and to build a small buffer (which won’t last long).

So, yeah. Upload gap/hiatus/whatever is coming up. There will be some stuff in that time period, though. I’ll do another April Fools strip, and there'll be an anniversary picture in October. Maybe some other stuff in there, too. Not sure yet.

edit:Just how long until Chapter 3? Not sure yet, but October's probably the earliest. It’s a long process and I’m slow. Updates will be posted when I have them.

I know Power of the Universe can be stupid, it can be corny, and I’m sure it has its share of inconsistencies and holes, but it means a lot to me. It's my gateway to creating, and I didn’t realize how much I wanted to make stuff until I started doing it. Thanks for giving the comic a shot and coming along as I figure myself out.

He sure did! Poor guy went through a lot, but he pulled through!
Gurt's one of my faves.

Saying it's fact makes it 100% true. That statement would hold up in court.

Aw, thanks! That makes me happy to hear!
I do worry about how long it takes to make, and this eases my mind. If people can enjoy the comic, it's all worth it.

I miss Dany, too...

Might start putting Chapter 3 up in October, not sure yet. Depends on how much is done by that point and whether it feels ready or not. Just trying to avoid messing things up early on.

Can you teach me the secrets of paralysis immunity? That sounds useful.

Izat so? well October is the best month of the year, far as im concerned anyway, i might be abit biased in that regard though seeing as it holds my birthday, thanksgiving, my favorite holiday of the year halloween, and its finally cold enough to justify wearing my favorite coat indoors and outdoors.

So yes, if you can manage please do start back up in October, it will be just another thing that as far as im concerned makes it great.

October's pretty great. It's the month I started the comic in, so I'm probably biased too. And that crisp air. Ooh.

It would be my ideal Ch3 starting point, so I'm gonna try!

Richard's got quite the Pokémon collection.

Yes. All two of them.
No greater collector in all the land.

Honestly surprised that Jupiter didnt mutiny and destroyed them anyway, although there wouldnt be much story would there?

That would've put an end to things pretty quickly.

But more than that, I think Jupiter knows when not to cross the line. She'd already disobeyed by not reporting the unknown factor, doing so again wouldn't go over well.

Gotta say, love the use of pokemon adventures style pokeballs. Do you have an update schedule?

I've always liked the Adventures style ball and needed a way to differentiate Richard and Aron's Pokémon a little further. Boom. Double awesome.

I don't really have an update schedule, unfortunately. Some strips wind up taking way longer than others, and it can be hard to predict. I was hitting once a month during the smoothest part of Chapter 2, which I know can be frustratingly slow, and that slowed even further towards the end.
I'm trying to reevaluate how I do things during this chapter break, and hopefully speed up some.

But for now, these two things are consistent:
Updates are slow.
When I do upload it's on Thursdays.

I'm going to interpret that as "check back April 14th, there should be one new page by then"

I think I answered your question wrong. My bad.

There hasn't been a concrete update schedule since Chapter 1, and I don't think that's gonna be changing anytime soon. It mostly updates when I finally get stuff done.

As for right now, Power of the Universe is on an upload hiatus while I get the backbone of Chapter 3 made. It probably won’t start going up until at least October. No concrete date or anything, but I’ll make posts in the 'News' section if/when I have more info.

There should be a small strip in April, but it’ll be stupid and have no bearing on the main comic. And it'll be moved to the 'Extras' section after it's been up for a little while.

Yeah, I figured the October thing out by reading the above comments, which I hadn't done until recently cause I'm a dumb sometimes. Welp, patience is a virtue I guess.

Worth the wait

Good job dude, this chapter turned out pretty well.

I'll still be here. Waiting for that next Chapter.

Next goal is to try and make Chapter 3 worth the wait.
