Just a last minute notice, but I will be attending FWA this week. A bit last minute notification, but it was very last minute approval and arrangements too.
Hope to meet some of you there!
Forest Hill discusses issues of childhood, childhood sexuality, abuse, and neglect. As such, this comic contains topics and elements not suitable for children, but at the same time, they are topics and elements they should be completely made aware of. Thus, I recommend Parental Guidance not just as a measure of whether the comic is suitable for a child to read, but whether it can also be a catalyst of discussion between parent and child. As such---while I do intend to artistically censor certain aspects---I have no intention to dumb down the topics, or talk down to the audience.
This comic contains nudity to various degrees. It is my intention to keep the comic tasteful, so while some frontal nudity (including naughty bits) may be shown at times, anything not fitting into a ‘tasteful’ category will be artistically censored either partially, or in whole. I do not want or intend this comic to become pornographic as it would completely derail its message. That is my artistic pledge to you.
Thank you for reading!

Just wanted to let you know that I will be attending Megaplex in Orlando, FL this year. I won't be in the dealer's den or artist's alley, though, but I will be wandering around the con volunteering my time.
Those of you out there who read my comic are already well aware that Forest Hill is not a happy comic. There have been issues presented that many people (both writers and readers alike) would rather steer away from, and I can't necessarily blame them, as the very nature of the issues themselves brings up emotions and memories that many would rather forget, but is also very hard to present tactfully, and as I have already started down this road a long time ago, I cannot easily turn back; it must be followed through. To ret-con or ignore the story line so far would be unconscionable of me.
However, be it so, the final resolution---whatever it may be---I will strive my utmost to present the issues at hand in the most respectful manner possible. There may (no, will) be inconsistencies are far as procedure goes (This is a comic, after all) but the subject matter itself will be presented in the most serious and straight-forward way that I can muster given the limitations of the medium.
Thank you for your continued readership!
Ever want to color in something in Forest Hill? Well, now you can! How about a free coloring book page?
If you'd like some Forest Hill swag, the gift shop is now open. I've only got a couple designs right now, but I plan to add a few more when I have the time.
