AFR #340 – All’s well

< The beginning of the end

And so it ends.  Eight years ago I made the first AFR comic.  I had no idea then how long it would go on.  I certainly never imagined getting 340 comics out of it.  Back when I started, there were only a couple other WoW-themed comics on the web.  Now there are dozens of fabulous comics for you to enjoy.  I am happy to leave the field to so many people who are cleverer, funnier, and much better artists than I am.

It’s been a lot of fun, and the best part of all has been you, the readers.  Whether you’ve been following AFR for years or just stumbled on it today, whether you’ve contributed to the comments or just been a reader, you are what has made these 340 comics worthwhile.  Thank you all.

AFR may be ending, but I’ll still be around.  You can follow my non-WoW comics over at Tabula Candida, and I’ll have a new creative venture to announce very soon.

Thanks for eight good years, and may all your hits be critical.

  2. Never posted here but I have been reading quietly for many years, even well after I have stopped playing WoW.
    I loved your comics and humor, thanks for bringing it to us. My favorite character was definitely Targe!
    I wish you all the best in your adventures in life 😀

  9. Mazel Tov, and what an amazing sendoff to an amazing comic. I have enjoyed your comic through the years so much I named a (sadly, short-lived) guild after it. Godspeed on your journeys.

    • Thank you! That’s an amazing tribute. I’m sorry to hear the guild didn’t last, but I’m really touched that it existed.
