Yes, I too am always very excited to see if I’ll water the plants the next weekend. So far I never have, but the future is RIPE with POSSIBILITIES!
How is the poor guy going to get bags of potatoes NOW, Cadavre?
I WILL EAT YOU!
*grabs potato shaped phone*
Security! Code Maroon! Code Maroon!
On the other hand, if we did live in a deterministic universe, that would absolve Cadavre of any responsibility!
And they say philosophy has no practical application.
Sir, I wish for you to observe this comic. It is relevant to your comment. http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=022916
I should probably mention that you, sir, now have me following Awkward Zombie. Thank you.
jesus christ stop calling people sir you fucking cringelords
i was gonna make a joke about skeleton plants, but plants don’t have skeletons
Maybe yours don’t.
There are these creepy desert plants that, long after they’ve died and dried out, start moving when sprinkled with water. I am not talking about the Resurection plant which really comes back to life; the plants I have in mind can really be called “undead”, but with a purpose for new life. The creepy movements spread and throw stored seeds all over the place. It’s as if Cadavre had a living human son to care for who was only born AFTER he died. Of course, he is such a ‘dead-beatnik’ (har!) that he wouldn’t be much of a dad most of the time, except for philosophy classes.
Honestly, I love these comics, they’re so clever and well-done. I would read them if they were a webcomic all their own.
Just had a discussion about holidays and traditions in one of my university classes. Lots of fun ones came up. Couldn’t help but think of Broodhollow.
“Damn it Cadavre stop using existential quandaries to get out of chores! And don’t even think about using the old “the dishes cease to exist when they are outside of my field of perception” to explain why my pans are still all filthy”
Just wait ’til he gets ahold of Zeno’s Paradox.
someday, someday broodhollow will be back. I wait with held breathe.
R. I. P.
RYAN BOND LIES HERE.
DIED OF ASPHYXIATION.
Poor stupid stupid Ryan.
Yup, Broodhollow seems to be dead, as well as Ryan Bond.
I just re-read Broodhollow, front to back, looking for a certain page. Does anyone else remember when Zane was flipping coins, trying to better understand the pattern and ran into ghosts in the park? It seems that the fray is far more powerful than we thought. The page is gone, as well as a few pages in the back. I’ve spoken with a few others I introduced to the comic. We all remember that the last story line plot point was Zane finding an Oubliette card in a library book. Also gone. I really did like some of those pages, but I’m willing to be understanding if the author feels he needs to take the story in another direction. But if it’s something else, I would really appreciate it if someone could help me find the lost pages.
I remember them… Where did they go…?
Chris has mentioned that he’s been re-thinking the direction of book 3. It may be that when he made a decision, some or all of the pages you’re referring to didn’t fit with that new direction, so he removed them.
That doesn’t bother me much; probably because I don’t remember that particular plot point? What REALLY bothers me is the entire King In Yellow section is missing again.
I’ve read a thing called the king in yellow but it had nothing to do with horror. It has severely confused me about what the heck the king in yellow is. Also I’m just annoyed there was a page saying Zane and etc will return but all I got was more cadavre.
Pretty sure this comic is a done deal… It’s been since Christmas of 2014 that anything has happened. There was some forward movement in the story in fits and jerks, but he apparently wiped that out when he announced he was going to get started again… Six weeks ago… I check back every few weeks and just see the Cadavre stuff, which seems like an attempt to not completely abandon the website. Damn shame. Out of all the online comics I read, this was the one I always checked first. You should check out False Positive. The guy doing that is usually good about keeping up with it and he’s got a ton of archives. Sorta “Creepshow” type vibe with a more serious tone.
tyvm for the False Positive tipoff ^_^
You’re welcome! That comic is insane, especially when it goes meta =)
Heh, this reminds me of the speech Dinobot gave before he died.
so is this comic abandoned
Well, it hasn’t been a month yet, and I have seen comics come back after nearly a year, so… (though I do hope it doesn’t take that long.)
A month since a filler ‘Cadavre’ comic. Been roughly 2.25 years since Broodhollow proper.
The last Broodhollow was posted in October.
Blake’s a dog, so you’ve got to multiply to find his time scale.
Mort is like a skeletal Squidward.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen this comic take so long to update… I’m really hoping this isn’t what it looks like…
Kris said he’s working on the next chapter now, and will resume the comic soon. Don’t give up hope yet!
Thank you. This has been a good one, and I’d really like to see what comes next. I’ll keep checking, and practice a little more patience.
When did he say that? Because he did say tht a few months ago and nothing.
He’s got to write out the entirety of the next chapter, and then make a good number of comics, so that if anything Reality Based gets in the way, he can coast for a while on what he’s already drawn up. Can’t just hammer out a Broodhollow the night before it’s due, or it would be absolutely horrible.
Also, the man has a new child. As anyone can tell you, those things require at least 32 hours a day of constant attention…
Sooooo… is this comic (the actual brood hollow story) ever updated?
It’s currently in a lull period, but in the works.
The author has had a lot of work in the way and I believe is now a father
I half expected something for All-Fool’s Day. I suppose I am said fool.
This comic is over, man. He’s got too much on his plate and he has to focus on stuff he can easily crank out and make money on. We’re going to get another Broodhollow in the same way we’re eventually going to get Half Life 3.
Wasn’t HL3 confirmed?
That’s rather idiotic. Lots of comics have 2 month hiatuses. Hiati? However it’s spelled. Hell, VGCats regularly goes two months between EVERY COMIC.
It’s getting harder to keep coming back here and find no new comic.
Screw that deterministic universe! I am down with the multiverse, where we get to see this comic done a million different times! And whenever this universe happens to cross with one where more of the comic is complete, your loyal fans will be waiting patiently! We miss you in this universe! :P Hope life isn’t being a big ol’ jerk to you or anything. What a hassle it can be sometimes.
jesus christ the cringe
hey, author, are you dead? kus if you arent you should probably let people know wether or not this comic is.
I think it’s a bit sad that people give up so easily when a comic doesn’t update for a few months. Remember that he posted an update in early february saying the next chapter is in the works, and that two months isn’t that much tim in the long run. And remember that there is a living person on the other end of the comics you so enjoy and they eat breathe sleep and live just as you do and deserve a little more patience than is being provided right now.
And may I also point out (as a couple others did) that plenty of comics go on hiatus. The most notorious one I can think of is The Meek which went on hiatus for three years before returning full force with regular updates, and a new comic series by the same author, or Alpha Flag that disappeared for well over three years and only just came back LAST MONTH for new updates?
Two months isn’t that long, even though I understand how hard it is to wait when you really enjoy something. This is probably one of the best comics I’ve ever read and I check on it every morning to see if there’s new content. It may be tough but I think it makes the eventual rewards even more worth-while. And if you’re still hungry for content, why not take the time to reread the comic or check out some of the author’s other works? :) It’s a nice way to kill time, and you might find something you really like!
While I agree, I wonder… why not a quick paragraph on the site every week or so, to just let people know things are still being worked on? Not all of us follow blogs or facebooks or any of that other internet bullshit that the kids do today.
Well, this isn’t his main comic. He posts most news to his other comic, Chainsawsuit, which is still updating. Would be nice to have stuff here, too, though.
Alpha Flag is back!?
distant zooming noise
Yeah it is!! I caught up not too long ago and really enjoyed it, it was so well done and the mest recent page was just posted four days ago.
And BlueStormZion, it wasn’t a blog post, it was a comic page posted in early february which said Broodhollow is in the works and is not dead. Admittedly it was over two months ago, but I think I said my piece in my first comment and I’ll remain patient. And yeah, I see what you mean, some more consistant updates would compensate for the semi-hiatus but looking at how many other projects the author has going on I can see why that could be an inconvienience. Still, I see what you mean and it would be nice, yes.
Here is said page by the way: http://broodhollow.chainsawsuit.com/page/2016/02/05/broodhollow-returning-soon/
Wait, The MEEK is back? I seriously….I’ve had it bookmarked from before the hiatus. I need to read this.
stop samefagging kris we know you ain’t doin’ shit
The webcomic I like the most has not updated in over 6 months. Obsessively checking PREQUEL for updates every day keeps me busy while I wait for Broodhollow.
2:52AM, and I managed to finish the comic from start to… Here. Obviously I won’t have any trouble sleeping after reading this, right?
Press ‘F’ to pay respects
F-in hell, why didn’t I check the date on the latest comic. Now I’m emotionally invested in yet another dead web series
I don’t see any reason why this won’t come back eventually. I mean, the author’s other comic is still updating regularly, so it’s not like he’s disappeared off the internet.
It’s back, by the way.
