EDIT 18/07/06: Colors added!

My apologies for the unfinished page. I would much rather post it like this than keep you waiting. Check back later today for the colors. :-)

In other news, I have a secret to tell you at last...I'm happy to announce that Bicycle Boy has been picked up by the online publisher Hiveworks. We will be moving the entire site over there sometime soon.

This is separate from the deal I talked about previously, which concerned a separate entity that didn't work out. It's all sorted now, and I am sorry if I caused any confusion for you. And though this site will be taken down when the move officially happens, I will keep this URL up to redirect everyone to the new site. I promise to keep you updated as we go through this change. I will make a more formal announcement when I have someplace to link you to!

In other news, the poll results are in, and the winners are as follows:
The most hated character is Darla (31%), followed by Morris (26%) and Slutman (14%).
The most beloved characters are Machk (36%) and Poet (34%), with Stonehenge (8%) trailing behind.*

These poll results will be used to fuel the next Beat 'Em Up pinup. As much as I love polls, I don't want to force a third poll on you guys all in the same month.

*Percentages concern percentage of the vote.

Thank you for everything,
- Jack

Sorry to see you go, but I know how tough it is to make a living as an artist and one must do whatever is necessary to survive. Good luck!

Yeah I'm gonna miss this place. CF has it's own share of problems, but I enjoyed being here for the most part. Hiveworks is gonna help me pick up the slack in self-advertizing and hopefully I'll have better luck reaching new readers through them. I've always been terrible at the self promotion side of webcomics.

There'll still be a disqus commenting system on the new site, which doesn't require a login or anything. I hope to see you there.

And I am going miss your comic, I mean you! At least you can see me, even if I can't see you...

... Also, I am sucking at self-advertizing too...

But I am fine at taking it slowly. Would panic if getting suddenly more than two or three subs at once *nod, nod*...

Hey no worries man. I'm gonna see if I can get the RSS feed set up the same as the one here, so a person can look at new pages full-size without accessing the website.

Also, I post the pages at a slightly larger size on Patreon, but that does cost $1/month, and I suspect Patreon's website would be even more likely to crash an old computer.

... looks like Opera do have native rss, but never used because I use rather subs. Shows on a statistics page and profile...

Might be solution, if rss can be set without accessing website at all. Maybe you can one day PM direct link or something if it works out?...

There are lots of good creators and comics on Hiveworks. It is a fine company that you're joining!

On the subject of Darla, unpopularity and beatings, considering that non-physical injuries count, I have a vision of Darla returning to Buffalo only to find-


Stores guy: Like I told everyone else, the supplies dried up, the scavengers came up empty, rationing went down real easy, 'specially with Stonehenge away, there was panic buying, a riot, an' a fire started while rioters an' looters were forcin' their way inter the stores! All the smokes got burned up! (whisper) Here - kept these back f'r you. *slips Darla three bent cigarettes* All I could manage. My ass woulda been dust if anyone'd found'm.

Darla: *palms cigarettes* (mouths) Thanks! *exits, hurries away to place of concealment* *carefully opens last packet* *carefully puts bent cigarettes in alongside the two remaining cigarettes in the packet* *stares at packet and contemplates future* ;_; ... D-X
