Masked Manor 2010-2013

Thanks again for reading! If you’re new to the site, the best place to start reading the comic is at the beginning, of course! For those of you who want to reference specific parts of the story, the story guide has been updated and is now complete, covering all three seasons. Enjoy!

Hello, gang. For the next few weeks, I’ll be going on a hiatus from the comic in order to tend to my health and also get some much-needed vacation. During that time, I’ll be posting high-resolution close-ups of select panels from some of my favorite strips from the past three years, five days a week. I’ll also be using part of that hiatus to prepare for the grand finale of our story.

That’s right — Masked Manor will be coming to a close in just a few months. If you happened to listen to my Tall Tale Radio interview with Tom Racine and Kris Straub back in January, you’ll remember that I mentioned the future ending of Masked Manor, and that I felt that three seasons was a good, round number.

I’ve been extremely grateful for the fans I’ve gained during the past three-plus years, so that’s why I wanted to end this comic properly rather than just quit. I want to do justice to these characters… and to all of you. So, thanks for joining me on this ride, and I hope to create a satisfying ending for you all. Before I get to that ending, though, I need a little break.

Hope you enjoy the retrospective! See you all soon.

Hey gang! I recently recorded an episode of Tall Tale Radio with Tom Racine and Kris Straub. We talk about Masked Manor, Kris’ new strip Broodhollow, and horror in general. You can listen to the entire episode at GoComics:


Hey, gang. Now that the holidays are upon us, things are getting really hectic for me, so I’m taking a week off from the comic to regain my sanity and prepare for a number of things, including my appearance this weekend at NC Comicon (November 17th and 18th).

The comic will return on Tuesday the 20th, but I’ll also be taking some Christmas time off in December… which brings me to another announcement: Season Three of Masked Manor won’t be wrapping up during the usual December time frame. I’m going to have some time off and then the season will resume in early January. There’s still a ways to go in this particular story and December is too soon to wrap it up, so you can expect more Masked Manor after the short holiday break.

And like I said, you can also expect more Masked Manor next Tuesday the 20th. If you’re in the Raleigh-Durham area, hope to see you at NC Comicon this weekend!

Hey, gang. Just a quick note to let you know that I’ll be appearing at NC Comicon in Artist Alley on November 17 and 18, at the Durham Convention Center. Stop on by, say hello, and pick up a copy of Masked Manor Volume 1 while you’re at it. For more info, check out the full list of guests and exhibitors. See ya there!
