Welcome to the DA gallery of NJ Huff and Emergency Exit Comics!

Okay so I am alive. After three months of agony and various methods of practice and seeing various doctors and even an MRI I finally have a better idea of what the heck happened when my back was injured in October and am actually making positive progress in my recovery FINALLY. So I've been dabbling with colouring old EE pages over the past few weeks and am feeling ready for some consistent drawing again.

Man I have a lot of work to catch up on. I also have to try to regrow my personal presence on the web. It's been one thing after another for the past few years, spent two months studying in Japan, stressing over finishing up graduating in two different fields of study, then trying to fix up the mess I call my comic into a much improved relaunch while also trying to finish a comic strip book then BAM no more back use for NJ, which also meant no drawing or computer use.

So over the next few months it'll be getting caught up in comic, finish up side book, redo my portfolio website, start getting back involved with communities and book a convention later in the year when my back is sure to be healed (I have forgotten what it is like to have a day without pain).

I am sure my fanbase has dwindled over these past few months especially between the two month break for the relaunch and then the two month break for injury. But I am grateful for the support I've been seeing even with all the downtime it gives me the little bit of hope I need to carry on. Thanks all!

Let's do this!

This fan hasn't left, if that makes you feel any better. I know what back problems can be like, so don't feel bad; you can only control so much of that kind of thing.

Good to see you back... and your back being in better condition :-)

I can see by the coloring that you have not lost the touch, so looking forward to seeing you back in business again in full!

Happy new Year!

Yeah..don't go to a chiropractor unless you're sure it's what you need. Pinched nerves sucks. I haven't talked to you in forever! Now that I can use the computer more I need to catch up on Cerintha and hunt you down!

Glad you're feeling better. ^^ Hope you get even much more better, though. Daily pain tends to suck.

Can't wait to see more EE!

Thank you, I am glad as well. I should improve slowly over time and eventually be back to norm.

I'm really glad that you're finally on the road to a full recovery! You most certainly deserve to get better after all the hard times you've had lately! And you know what that means... a meet-up trip is in store sometime soon! It's been forever! Good luck on getting back up to full health and on catching up with the interwebs! :glomp:
