Creator’s Note, October 1, 2023:

What’s my plan with Dogwood Blossoms? For now, the story is abandoned. Apologies, readers!

Comics are labor intensive, and I’m not able to justify the amount of work required for a fan project that I can’t claim complete ownership of. I did learn a lot, and I created some of the most complex art I have ever done for this project.

I still love the story and it’s been spinning in the back of my mind for two decades. I want to do a serial-number-scrub revamp, and rework the story to be original and in prose. (I’m a little faster as a prose fiction writer. A little.) There will be dragons.

But until then, please enjoy the pretty art and the horrible cliff-hanger. šŸ˜…
