Final decision in. The restart is a 100% go, and female Assistant is a yes.

I know some were very opposed to it, but I also think you guys don't quite know whats going to happen. Although it is a restart, there will be enough changes to still make it new, and keep the comedy, but add more things that are more important to the story. And of course, FemmiAssistant. Though there will always be haters, and maybe even people that stop reading the comic. If thats really your decision, fine, but I think you're skipping out before you see some awesome new stuffs. Its all up to you.

And since some people were curious about the femmiverse sketches - LINK WORKS NOW! s%2F128018&qo=14

Most are from my Tumblr. :I I post lots of... odd stuff on there, haha. Usually GV related.

Anyway, current idea is to start reposting GV on here from page one of redraws, and archive the comic elsewhere. In fact, the comic is usually archived on my DA, if anyone wants to watch that.

It'll take me a little while to fix up everything and do the change, so please bare that in mind.

She looks better anyway. However the rainbow dreadlocks won't be as funny on a girl, but none the less I'm glad you made this desicion(although you could of just had him turned in to a girl through magic). Also, I found a great theme song for this comic and it's characters:

Despite this picture, my attention is still drawn towards Harold. Hmm...

And now I'm falling in love with this all over again. Rest in Peace, MaleAssistant!

*Tries to draw a fancomic but fails. Maybe I'll try again later.*

Just a little worried you might pair femmassistant with someone now. :C

It doesn't matter that Assistant is a lady now. Wallis is still the prettiest, SO SAYS THE GREAT WALLIS!

I agree with Ricardioeatingsometacos, the dreadlocks won't be quite as funny...
I feel like I will still refer to Assistant as a male... :( But then again, the reboot hasn't started yet, so...

I have to admit though, I am in favor of a particular FemAssistantxHarold pairing mentioned earlier. A_A Not enough Het Love on this site. >_>

Even though I think it's alot more funny to torture a boy I'm very intrigued about this girl version... And kinda happy that there is finally a girl main character!

Czar Squid, October 4th, 2011, 6:27 pm     Reply

You could always have some evil male twin of the assistant. To reference to the original. The assistant always seems to be neuter, so its not like its shocking.

Yayz! Can't wait to see how it turns out!

It's like the old assistant except with boobs!

I bet this comic would look amazing (even more than now)done in Illustrator.

Magical.Android.Aria, October 4th, 2011, 7:17 pm     Reply

Eh, I'm a true fan. I love ya and your comic GV. Male Assistant was my favorite along with Harold but I can honestly say that FemmiAssistant is a FINE piece of work. Mmmm~ you go girl! LMAO. xD
So I am totally cheering you on. Seriously though, I want some Harold x Assistant shipping done. ಠ_ಠ

//EDIT: Hey love, thought you should know that the link to the Femmi sketches doesn't work. It just pulls up an error page. xD

@crunchyblueberry: LOL. Apparently my comment won some people over? Harold x Assistant will forever be real in my mind~

As long as there are no stupid asstxHarold xWallis xLemonhead I'm good with this.

She's so cute! I will love Gloomverse always and forever <3. I would say I can't wait to see what's next, but that would be a lie, because I CAN wait, I just don't want to.

I really dont want this to would totally ruin this epic comic for me...may i request you leave this version up, and make the new one under a new domain? please? I would miss this too much...-hiff hiff-

This might actually be a good change. Though less smiling, more emo for her.

HaruxXxAnime, October 4th, 2011, 9:19 pm     Reply

I sense some awkward moments in the future of this comic..... Femassistant is really amazing though! And Harold is still awesome as ever~

Should totally let us see the other gender-bends

Okay I relinked the images so you should be able to see Femmiverse now!

Looks great :) I'm a little sad that we'll be back-tracking in the plot a bit because I loved where it was going, but I totally understand and I'm excited to see the changes! Plus I anticipate that you'll catch up to where you are now pretty fast

OMG WUT. I totally missed this, how how how where was I, I was here just this week....@o@ *in shock*
I am...confused. But curious. hehe. I feel like it'll be harder to laugh-at/'take the mickey outta' fem assistant because even here her smile suggests a reasonable-puts-up-wit-a-lotta-shit attitude instead of a NEET-butt-monkey-type, but I have seen nothing so I may be wrong or if I'm not it might not impact the awesomeness, or it might increase it (EXPONENTIALLY?!) SO I AM ANTICIPATING HUZZAH my goodness this will be interesting/strange/still-adjusting to shock. I feel like I just found out Ginny Weasley was actually a Jeffrey. Or Greg. Greg Weasley.
Or maybe its Harry being a Harriot.
Idk he doesn't seem as vocal sometimes.

I'm surprised by your choice, but I guess Assistant works either way ;D I hope "she" doesn't get massacred by fan girls (and triangle)

When I saw this had updated and went to the page, I was so confused xDD It took me a while to actually get some brain and read the description fff-

Looks like it'll be interesting, despite how used to a masculine assistant we are :)

Ah, I've been reading since she was a boy. I like the idea, I'm so gonna read on, but I'll miss the ol' assistant.
Oh, but new assistant is so pretty~

Hi CQ, I wanted to send this on tumblr but I can’t find the ask button as an anon (since I don’t have a tumblr account). Anyway, I've been following you for a while now because I've really been enjoying your Aftertale comic. I love the art style, the intriguing plot and how well you manage to capture the essence of all the characters. But even though I've really been enjoying your comic, I wasn't really as interested in your original stuff. That is until one of the Gloomverse panels caught my interest. Let’s just say I binge read this entire comic that night. And then reread it again the next day. Your comic is amazing! I have not been so invested in a story like this in ages. The world is so unique and colourful and it is so obvious how much time you’ve spent creating and thinking about it. The plot is amazing: you have done an incredible job of weaving humour, mystery and angst/comfort, along with a lot of very serious issues and concepts in a way that feels natural and easy to take in while still keeping the plot moving at good pace. But by far the best part of the comic is its characters; I absolutely adore your characters and I'm impressed by how well you’ve managed to pull off such a diverse cast so well. I feel like a lot of diverse and progressive characters (and many just ‘normal’ characters too) in the media atm tend to feel tacked on, in your face or just flat and 1-dimensional but you’ve managed to create such deep, endearing and realistic characters (And representing so many different people as well!). Each character is so unique, complex and flawed and again you can totally tell how much you love and thought about all of them. I have loved following Assistant, Wallis, Harold, Seaweed, Hobo, Petunia and all of the others through this comic (Particularly for their facial expressions, those are priceless). As someone who draws and writes in my spare time around work, I can totally understand your need to put on hold projects for management and well being (the last thing that I want is for you to push yourself too far) and while I am really excited (and sad) to see the end of Aftertale, when you finally have time to get around to focusing more fully on Gloomverse I know I am going to be so ecstatic! Never stop drawing comics my friend because you have an amazing gift and are so passionate about it :)
