The joke I’ve had naming this comic “No One Cares” is that I talk about personal topics that nobody cares about but me. By that same token, probably no one would have cared if I didn’t acknowledge April’s absence when I felt able to start updating again. From my point of view though, it would have felt wrong. It would have done a disservice to the relationship and myself to just brush it off as something unimportant. It was an important event that had a big impact on me, even if I don’t intend to discuss it further past this particular comic. I just had to rip the band-aid off, acknowledge it, say my piece, and move on. Lord knows I already have enough depressing stuff I need to get caught up on here…
