Hey guys, hiatus is officially over! I'm sorry for the long wait. A lot happened this past month. I moved, started a new job, and had to wait to get my tablet back. My job is taking over my life, so I won't be able to draw much, the only thing I will be able to do is this comic. I want to devote an hour a day to drawing though, that is my goal. I can accurately say that this week I will have some time to spend on dorks, so that's good for me! Thanks for waiting patiently! So sorry!

Also I made an ask blog!

Yay.....Dorks is back! And we all understand that life can get in the way of art sometime. As long as Dorks continues, no matter how slow, I will be happy.

I love that you are being diverse with you characters, which might seem strange when half of the main characters aren't even human. I hope Bubbles is open minded and accepts him as he is. I also hope that Richie keeps an open mind that he may like someone someday. I know this is something people of all identities and orientations are tired of hearing ( I know I find it very annoying sometimes) but he might like someone some day.
Personally I remember a time where the idea of being with another man bothered me, I accepted that I found some men attractive but didn't think anything would ever come of it. Now I have a hard time imagining myself ending up with someone who isn't a man. I know personal experience counts for little, but my views and feelings on so many things have changed over the years (if I met my younger self I would probably try and beat some sense into him) that when someone states a fact about themselves I always wonder if it will remain that way in years to come.
This is in no way saying that he is wrong in how he feels (and I am assuming he is saying he is asexual and possibly aromatic as well but just doesn't know the words) and that he might remain this way for the rest of his life. But one of the great things about life is that it is constantly changing, even when we don't want it too or expect it. I honestly don't know why I just typed all of this other than I love your comic,and the way this was revealed felt natural and not forced like so many comics do. It seems like a natural development of his character and not a "forced diversity" so many people try and push. Keep up the excellent work and I hope your job doesn't become too much for you and you can continue your art to your hearts content.

OMFG DORKS IS BACK!!!!! THIS IS THE BEST DAY EVER!

First of all, congrats on your moving, job and welcome back (we missed ya!). I think what you mostly want with Dorks right now is to finish the Prom story arc, as I think you stated before. We can('t) wait for each update, because this is comic is super worth it. You don't have to worry or apologize for long hiatuses, there are webcomics that have LH for as long as a year or two and then they return. When you need to leave to the real world, we'll be waiting for you. When you come back, we'll give you a fluffly welcome back. *Throws confetti*

About the page: Somehow I felt this was coming. It is common to see a sad person behind a smiling mask. Richie is constantly happy, trying to stay altogether, but he has had few breakdowns where he loses himself to the moment. It is good to see him being able to open up himself to trusting (Death Juice) Bubbles, because, even though his friends will support him no matter what, sometimes it is hard to accept that you are different from the herd. I feel Bubbles is gonna be 100% supportive of Richie, because she doesn't seem like the angry 'I can't be rejected' type of person (perhaps I might be wrong, and that's the punchline).

Can't wait to see her reaction and Richie's reaction to hers. I love this comic and hope everything's going great. Woohoo, Dorks! <3

There was a hiatus??? I did not even notice.
.....Not in a bad way, I mean this updates so often and with so many pages that I didn't actually notice...

@LColby: Thanks so much! I just loved to update every day but with my new job it just sucks that I can't do that anymore. I'm happy that you guys can understand when I am super busy!

@killerSin:
Thanks so much! I missed you guys too. I really do want to finish the Prom arc really badly. There is a lot of character development I want to do and more characters to indroduce. I'm just really thrilled that I finally made it to the actual dance lol (took me what, 4 months RIP) I already had a hiatus in college for 2 years, so I never want to do that again, but there might be times where I need a few weeks to accomplish RL things.
