Welp... I don't know if you've heard... but, there was a big kerfuffle over at Tapastic (where the static version of the Crimson Fly is hosted), over their terms of Service recently (More Info Here)  Now, Tapas/Tapastic recanted on those changes, but when looking into it, some other comic creators also started speaking up (More Info Here). I use "Creators" rather than "creator" because this wasn't a one-time thing when the first event happened.

Now, "fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." And while I'm not big enough to be worth fooling in the first place, nor, as far as I know, have I been first-fooled, but I'm not looking to be get fooled a first time.  I'm also a big believer in "context," and "personal history," and that said personal history informs the kinds of decisions you'll make in the future.  This does not paint a good picture for Comic Panda/Tapastic/Tapas/whatever they'll rename themselves as in the future (which, having said it out loud, doesn't bode well).

So, what does that mean for the Crimson Fly? Well...

I'm taking the Crimson Fly down from Tapastic, and will stop updating on Tapastic. It sucks, because that was the last place you could find a FREE, static (no interactive/animated elements, which makes it easier to read) version of the Crimson Fly (I have no plans to restart and/or update the Tumblr version). But, I have to look out for the Crimson Fly, and myself, first and foremost. If I don't, that could mean that I may, later down the road, thanks to a poorly-worded/read contract, have to STOP making the Crimson Fly. And a harder-to-find, harder-to-read, harder-to-access Crimson Fly, is infinitely better than having NO Crimson Fly AT ALL. You can still find the Crimson Fly here, and updates will still be listed across all the social media sites you can find me, but you'll ONLY be able to find it here (unless a better option presents itself). It sucks, but it is what it is, and hopefully, this protects the Crimson Fly from controversy down the line.
See ya next week!

Its late-ish because I thought I could get the animation done before the end of the day. Apparently not, so we just have stills. Animation Wednesday at the latest!

Cutting it close, but we made it! yay! Still need to tweak the last 3 panels so you can replay the slow-mo descent into explosions, but it shouldn't otherwise impede your viewing action! Enjoy!

See ya next week!
