The State Of Tabula Rosetta
by Sarah Allen Reed
From this point on, Tabula Rosetta will not be bimonthly.

As some of you know, I am a professional truck driver outside of comics. I've recently found a decent job in my field doing local routes, and while I'm happy to report that I'll be making a livable wage and will be able to support myself, pay for a part-time assistant, and eventually purchase some machines to allow us to print even the paperback books in-house, I won't be able to continue the same release schedule that I've been following while working odd jobs. Tabula Rosetta was birthed, to no small degree, out of my malaise and lack of direction after I got out of trucking in 2017. Now that I'm back in, I'm not going to have the energy to continue putting forth the same kind of hard-hitting work that I've been putting out in the timeframe that I've set up. I've been grasping at straws with my mental health for months as it stands, and quite frankly I won't be able to keep up this pace with only three days a week in the studio, even with an assistant's help.

I'm hoping to still have the series out at a reasonable clip. The web series is quite a bit behind the actual comics, and it should continue on as scheduled, with one new page hitting three days a week. In addition, I'm excited to announce that I have two other new series in the works as well, I'm currently putting together a definitive color version of the first six chapters of The Waste Saga and will be pitching it to some other publishers, and I'm currently putting together a small line of merch for you to pick up should you wish to help fund TR in its current form.

Either way, Issue 10 will be delayed until I feel that it's ready (I'd look for it sometime around June or possibly later), and TRIAGE 3 will be pushed back to May 31st.

There will come a time, dear reader, when I will not have to work a day job on top of the studio. Until then, TR is going to be coming at a bit slower of a clip.

Thank you all, as always, for being here. I'll see you all soon.

Hey, y'all. If you didn't catch it (I'm awful at keeping up with this blog), Volume 1 is completely finished, and Volume 2 is underway. We just released an end-of-year trade paperback called MONOLITH (which should be up on Amazon in its final form soon; we've been having troubles with production that have been documented pretty extensively on Instagram), and I'm currently working on Issue 8.

Anyways, I've decided to commemorate one full year of Tabula Rosetta and try to raise some cash for charity while I'm at it by releasing a limited edition shirt, featuring the artwork from the front and back covers of MONOLITH:

If you'd like to purchase a hoodie or shirt, click here. All proceeds are going to TransKids Purple Rainbow, a charity that supports transgender youth (I'm a transgender woman, myself) by promoting education, awareness and acceptance. This is a limited edition joint that's only going to be available for 21 days, and there's pretty good odds I'll never print these again.

Snag a shirt or hoodie and help me celebrate, and do some good for LGBT youth as well! Thanks so much for reading.

(Also, if you end up snagging one, send me a picture of you wearing it!)
