Okay, so first off, you may notice that this comic is not yet gone and neither am I. We'll get to that.
But first, a quick update on my new YouTube channel. IT'S UP AND RUNNING IN FULL!!! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNT_6VH7GO7xLfvPMfK7glA
And boy, has it been fun thus far! Lots of trials and tribulations, learning and growing, and crap that I've had to deal with...most notably the troubles I've had with editing my videos. I won't bore you with the details, but we'll just say that they took WAY longer than they should have. Hopefully that doesn't stay the constant and my expertise over it will grow, thus allowing for quicker editing.
Now, on to why I'm still here...
A revelation dawned on me early Monday, one that I haven't had much time to address until just now. That revelation was "What if someone else picked up CR? The sprites, comic history, and story are all there...it's possible for someone else to literally pick up where I left off." At the very least, it would be an avenue for Chaos Reigns to continue existing here on SJ while I move on to other ambitions.
So that's what I'm still doing here. Nostalgia, as it where, kept me from leaving in earnest. At least while some hope of this comic somehow lasting on without me exists.
In short, here's the plan I have; stay here on SJ until I can find someone willing to pick up the author rights from me for Chaos Reigns.
All I ask is it be someone who will continue it's existence. A person who would work on it and update it is a bonus, but even someone who dearly loves it and wants to see it stay here on SJ would suit my vision fine.
To those wanting to continue it, I can offer all I have concerning story and script (a few word documents and such that can help fill in a few blanks) as well as the occasional advisory role. But I don't want a "co-author"...I want someone to pass the reigns over to, as it were (punny, right?).
So, if you're interested, let me know! After some time, I'll decide the fate of CR truly and, with luck, we can see it continue on!

Ultimate don't you have enough comics to work already?
I'm sorta tempted to pick it up but I have something else down the pipeline that I want to get going first and get into the groove.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing Ultimate continuing Chaos Reigns. I already enjoy the rest of his comics, I'm sure he'd do this one justice.

Dude, most of those comics are what I have co-authors for and I mostly act as script writer.
And most of my work even still is inspired by this comic.

As the previous co-author, i would definitely keep it up on SJ, but just like you I know i wouldn't continue to update it. So to preserve it I could hold on to it, but if somebody else is willing to continue it, It would be better to choose that individual.
Like Ultimate said about his comics, most of my contribution to this one was in helping with the framework of the script, not in making the actual comic.
hell, if someone does take over with the intent to continue, i may* help them in a similar fashion if they'd like.
*may being anywhere from a 17.38 to 81.96% chance determined randomly.

Good to see there's already people who want to at least preserve it, and one who actually wants to continue it. Otherwise, I would've had to offer my services, and with my excrutiating lack in drive that's already killed my own projects, rapidly decreasing interest in anything Sonic, and reluctancy to touch upon another person's project - especially one as marvelous as this - it would've just been in a vacuum jar on a shelf.
Here's to hope we can all see it carry on.
