The End of Omega Mode (Part 4)

And with that, Omega Mode comes to an end.

Making this comic has been a wonderful experience, getting to draw stories about the characters and games I love every week was a true joy. It was also nice knowing that there people out there who were actually willing to read what I made (who would have guessed?). But in all honesty, thank you all so much for your support. Whether you pop in every now and then, or have followed the comic since the very beginning, you have my sincerest gratitude.

When I started Omega Mode, I wasn’t sure what exactly it would become or where it would go. I’m still not really sure what it ultimately could have become, but I will say that I’m happy with how it turned out. I hope you are, too.

So why am I ending the comic? There are a few reasons. The most prominent reason being that I have other projects that I want to work on, and I simply can’t do that while I have Omega Mode, school, and an internship. I also did not want Omega Mode to go on too long, fearing that it would grow stale and that I would begin to resent it. I ultimately decided that about 2 and a half years would be a good total run for the comic.

Something I have grown to appreciate about the Smash Bros community is the creativity it brings out in its members. I would like to share with you one of my favorite Smash Bros fan creations, a song from the album Harmony of Heroes. I have used songs from this album in the Q&A podcasts before. I think this particular song makes for an appropriate send-off.

The projects that I will be working on are more personal ones, so there really isn’t anything I can leave you with. If you really want to follow what I do, there is my YouTube account. It’s not something I update frequently, but I may put something there regarding what I’m working on sometime.

The email omegamode(dot)comic@gmail(dot)com will still be active, so you can say “hi” if you want. Commissions will stay open for a while, but I don’t know how much longer.

Alright, I guess that’s about it. For closing thoughts, I guess I’d like to say to always follow your passion. It may require patience and resilience, but doing what you love is worth all that. Take it from me, I got to make a webcomic.
