Back on board with Xenex...or is it Xenex back on the Board?

Writing issue 4!
Dear Xenex the Bug Man fan,
Low grumble.  Low, unsettling, loud moaning grumble. I swear that that is what I imagine from Xenex fans. What is the low grumble, displeasure. Not displeasure with the comic, but unhappiness with the time in between issues. All I have to say to that is, "I'm pretty displeased with my "Apparent lack of progress"(as disguised in a bad Vader voice) as well.  It's true. On some levels, I have done the Bug Man fans a mighty wrong in making you wait so long for an issue. So, to satiate your Xenex story hunger, I am...finally... writing and working out the kinks to the extremely delayed issue 4. I say this, and this time I absolutely mean it! 
So you may be asking, "What has taken so long?" Well, I have no excuses to give you; only reasons. The biggest reason, life. My job brought me in for more time than what I had planned,  I moved, and I over-did the promised art pieces. Also, I had a little too many Saints Row the Third Co-op play dates with my Best Friend Matt Kernan over at Video Game Hangover. I know that those sound like excuses, but they are in fact some truths to this reason of life getting in the way (well except for the Saint Row). And honestly, these are things I need to learn to work around as I have done in the past. My hope is to one day be able to work on this comic and others without having certain aspects of life get in the way, but till then... I will have to say to those who have stuck with me and the comic for all of this time, "Thank you". You have no idea what your voice and support means to me!
You know I had said that over promised art pieces was a problem. Not too true, that statement. In fact, I have a Xenex character mash-up with the original character, Flapjack from a fellow deviantart friend, Larry King! Head on over to his DA page and check out his fun comics!
So, again, thank you for sticking with me, and with Xenex the Bug Man. Hang in there because I have more twist and turns and fun in store for this story. And, if you want to help, and you want to help SO BAD, repost this on your facebook page, or tell your friends about the comic, or"Like" the Xenex the Bug Man facebook page; in general help me get the word out to everyone. If you like what you are reading in the comic, let the world know.
