Congratulations on completing the volume David. I'm sorry it hasn't brought joy to your life but I hope it's brought a sense of achievement. Where many comics simply cease and go silent or pull a rushed wrap-up, you managed to accomplish a very neat ending that could honestly be taken easily for the complete ending of the series.

Good luck with your sequel, If you ever decide you could do Crimson Dark's third volume justice in complete written form I'm sure there are fans who would pick it up considering the terrific work you did in some of the other Crimson Dark short stories. But understandably, the tone of the story as a whole is whats leaving you worn, rather than the medium you present it in. Another day, maybe, it was a great adventure either way.

Live life, love life and if Beta Readers are a thing you're into, I administer a FB group called "Beta Readers & Critiques" that I like to believe does a good job of connecting the two.

I'm sorry to hear (but not surprised, unfortunately) that it had become a joyless chore. I for one will miss your wonderful characters, who're far more complex and deeper than most webcomics achieve, and your incredibly beautiful space ships. My own design esthetic tends towards a much nearer-future style, but yours was so well-executed and clearly thought out that it was easy to appreciate the solid world-building that made such beautiful ships possible. I hope to see more of your work, whatever it may be, in the future, and know that whatever it will be will be at least as good as CD was. Best of luck to you, and may your future be more pleasant than the recent past has been for you.

Knowing Veygyr, "again" will instead mean "multiple times."

Great end to the story. Looking forward to whatever story you tell next using 3D (I hope).

Thanks for all the fish.
It was a great ride. I hope, some day, you will feel inspired and energetic to bring us the last part. But take your time. I loved the characters, the story was a fine one, and I will dearly miss the characters and their shenanigans.
I'm really look forwards to seeing what you decide to do next.

Edit: Some day, I hope to hear what parts of SWTOR you worked on, so I could go visit the areas.

Thank you for your story and artwork. I was glad when you returned and now am equally happy to see the tale come to a satisfactory conclusion. I've read too many other comics that just stop and leave you hanging.

I'm gonna miss Crimson Dark. I'm probably gonna come back for the next 10 years or longer in the hope to find out what happens in volume 3. If the page stays up that is.

It is a sad, but at the same time joyful day. Sad, because one of my beloved comics is ending. Joyful because it has achieved the ending, and wasn't cancelled mid-run or just puttered out of life like oh-so-many others, leaving their storylines unconcluded...

I wish you best of luck in your future projects, and hope to see something new you come up with! And deep, deep inside hope for the Volume 3 some day.

Thank you for all the hard work you've put in, and congratulations on a story concluded!

Just one question, though, that I feel like has been left unanswered: Whatever happened to Sapphira?

Well there were certain hints *cough ... benefactor... cough*. But sadly enough, speculating is a mute point, unless Volume3 will be created we would never know.

Yeah, I kind of feel like if Sapphira were the benefactor it would have simply been revealed and we could answer the question of where she went. Honestly, I suspect volume three would have had her show up to reveal some other plans, quite possibly even as an enemy. We didn't ever find out how Sarah pulled through from being disconnected from the Collective either. Maybe another point there which might have seen her trying to re-enter the collective and causing disruption within the fleet to do it.

The whole thing is a great way to show off all the other parts of the CD universe and it's diverse set of governments and cultures between different places... I wonder if they ever revealed the location of Novosi's body. If not, thats an extra ship they could have brought into the fleet with guns.

Yeah, there are some loose ends, but the whole story is closed. Thank you David for all of this!
Hopefully there will be some Volume 3 in some shape and form in the future. I will be lurking, checking the page from time to time, till that happens...
