Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is there a planned ending to Lapse? How long will it be?

A: I have a fully-written script for Lapse and have had this script since I started drawing it. It's going to be nine chapters long, and will probably end up being between 200-230 pages.

Q: What the heck is Tripod?

A: Good question!

Q: No, seriously, what is that thing?! I'm losing sleep over it!

A: Oh... Well, in that case, Tripod is a malicious non-human entity. Or, you may call it a demon. Honestly though, giving a name to what Tripod is doesn't reveal much in terms of Lapse's story!

Q: Do you believe in ghosts?

A: I consider myself a skeptic. There are a number of mundane explanations for ghost encounters that people would hardly stop to consider in the moment, especially if they're already frightened. However, the idea of encountering a ghost still terrifies me, so make of that what you will. I keep an open mind and I never dismiss anyone's ghost story. In fact, if you have one, I would love to hear it!

Q: Does Eli speak with a British accent?

A: Nope — Eli was a born and bred American! While he lived quite a long time ago, keep in mind that the British pronunciation of English has undergone more changes than American English since the colonies split. As for what Eli does sound like, he has a mild Pennsylvania Dutch accent (ex., he pronounces 'house' a bit more like 'hoss', and 'sound' a bit more like 'sond').

Q: Do you plan to restore the weekly schedule?

A: Yes. If all goes well, it is my plan to return to the weekly schedule for chapter 5.

Q: Any chance you'll bump the schedule up to two pages a week in the future?

A: I wish, but this won't be possible unless I quit my job or make enough money on the comic to hire help. The pages usually take me 20+ hours to finish, and I simply don't have an extra 40+ hours in my week to spare.

Q: What's your favorite horror movie?

A: I get asked this a lot! I feel a bit weird answering it, though, because I wouldn't call myself a horror aficionado and I haven't seen a whole lot of horror movies, let alone all the must-sees and classics.

That said, my favorite horror movies are The Orphanage (2007) and the Babadook (2014).
