I’ll rip this bandage right off: keeping up with all of my various projects while updating this comic (which is entirely written, penciled, inked, painted, and digitally lettered by Yours Truly) on a weekly basis has become unrealistic. As a result, I’m going to have to start making much more intermittent updates to Beer Witch for the foreseeable future.
That’s the bad news.
The GOOD news is that I am working on a ton of amazing stuff right now on a lot of different creative fronts, and less frequent updates to Beer Witch mean increased quality of work on ALL the projects I’m involved in. In terms of recurring projects:
So yes. I’m not really sure as of this writing how often Beer Witch will be updated, but I can absolutely guarantee that the current story WILL be finished at some point. I really love this story arc and want to share its twists and turns with you! To see when Beer Witch updates, you can always check back here.
For more general updates on my art and writing, I recommend adding Love Train for the Tenebrous Empire to your blogroll (I still update that intermittently if something really strikes my fancy), or you can follow my micro-publishing imprint, Heretical Sexts, on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for real-time updates on what I’m involved in:
Thanks for reading and keep it weird,
So you may have noticed that there’s no new Beer Witch this Monday. That’s because I’m deep in prep for co-hosting the pop culture variety show Kevin Geeks Out About Super Villains, taking place this Thursday July 30 at Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn. Hosted by Emmy-nominated comedy writer Kevin Maher, this episode of the long-running series includes weird film clips, original comics, and actual smart academic type people talking about power-mad perverts, bald villains, cartoon criminals, Satanic weirdoes, wrestling heels and more.

KEVIN GEEKS OUT is a video variety show hosted by writer-comedian Kevin Maher – a confabulation of obscure film clips, offbeat commentary, guest experts, games and curiosities. To geek out with Kevin you don’t have to be a geek, just a pop culture-adventurer.
