PLEASE READ!
Hey RPS readers,

This is really bittersweet moment for me but I'll no longer be updating RPS.

Instead I'll be working on GATEKEEPER, a new comic that's loosely based off RPS - think of it as a revamp or evolution of RPS with better art, storytelling and a different plot. Please check it out here: http://www.smackjeeves.com/comicprofile.php?id=132515

You'll see many similar themes in GATEKEEPER and I'm sure that if you enjoyed RPS, you'll like my new comic too! In fact, I redid Mr. Porter and have him as the main character of GATEKEEPER!

I�m not going to be dishonest and say that this new comic will be completely original and that I�m not self-plagiarizing, but I sometimes consider RPS an unfinished product - a draft. Even before RPS, I had a comic by the same name that told a similar story from the detective�s POV and I decided to revamp it into what it is today. My thoughts and work are always evolving and I would like to try something new. If you�ve been following my comic, you�ll see that RPS has evolved so much since the first chapters, not just in terms of art but also the type of comic, mood, and plot. It�s gotten much more serious, deep and gritty.

Thank you for all the support and I hope you check out GATEKEEPER!

Oh, well.
I'll admit that, when I read the announcement the first time, I kind've spat blood. "No more RPS? What am I going to do with my ship? Or my life? hfjghfdkgh NOOOOOOOO!!!!!! No more JackXReilly?! T_T We never get to find out what happens to them? *DESPAIR EVENT HORIZON*"

Nevertheless, you are the artist/writer here and I know what it's like to feel like moving on from one work to begin another. Thus, I will be all right with giving this new story a chance, especially if you kept Mr. Porter around. I do like him.

However, way back in Chapter 7, the door somehow got left open for Jack and he was able to escape. You said that you'd explain that eventually but, with this comic ending, that won't be an option, I suppose. So, I would like to ask you, Word of God, who left the door open for Jack? It's really been bothering me and (aside from the main plot line) it's the only loose string I've really been thinking about.

Would it be too much trouble for you to answer this question for me? Or would there be spoilers for your next comic?

In any case, I do look forward to what you'll be working on next. :) I have high hopes for it, since you seem to feel that it is more of a "Final Draft" of this.

P.S. It's funny that your comic's called "Gatekeeper" - the story I've had mulling around in my head for months now has a prominent character whose title is "The Gatekeeper." :) I've always been fascinated with the word/concept, for some reason. It can have so many different connotations...

EDIT: Oh, and also, why did Argent join the Doctor? o.o That's still really been bugging me as well, though I forgot to mention it. Agh, so many questions I need answers for. D:

Slightly wishing it was still April 1st but alas, it isn't. ;u;

I did enjoy and will continue to enjoy RPS even if it remains unfinished and I know for sure that I'll love your new comic as well. :D I'm glad you're moving forward to improving even more and hope you keep up the great momentum with your works.

Also I'm loving this new take on the designs of Reilly and Mr. Porter and the overall look of the picture.<3 And I like the name Olivia. I always liked that name and I find it fitting for the character. I can't wait to see what other changes and new developments you have in store for this revamp. :D

Oh well, what can you do. I understand, I'll miss RPS though, but I'll go read the new story regardless, anyway, best of luck! :3

;__; My heart sunk when I read this.
This was one of my favorite comics on smackjeeves, and seeing it end kills me inside. But it's your choice as the author, and it's great that you're moving on into a new comic (which I will also stalk).
It's been a great ride, and I look forward to the new comic.

it's nice your branching out but i must ask you to please keep RPS going, don't give up gate keeper but please re-consider!

I'm actually kind of happy, and okay since this kinda died for a while then lived then died so it was hard to keep up though I loved the plot theme and basic gist of it. So I'll be flying to gatekeeper now. :>

Oh I should repost this in gatekeeper to show my support \o0o/
