Sorry to hear that LeeLee.
If I give you money do I get another awesome tee shirt?

Hey, it worked with Alison at EC. :p

I'll pitch in for the robot arms on one condition.
You make the Six Million Dollar man noise whenever you move. Deal?

Sounds like we need to go Adam Jensen on ya! Quick! Someone invent cybornetic arms, complete with arm blades of course.

Hope you heal up quick, if you really want to put out content show some screens or concept art you've got for your games, I'd be interested in checking them out.

Are we gonna need to do another "Alison"-like fundraiser? If so, you may wanna consider abandoning this site.

Seriously, though, heal up, girl. We understand.

Take all the time you need. I think all of us would want a fully healthy you instead of a not fully healthy you.

Especially if the latter means no more great comics!

But seriously, get well. We'll be fine. You focus on getting better.

Absolutely out of the question! How dare you suggest that your health and wellbeing is more important than our weekly scraps of entertainment!? Draw slave, draw!

[small]Seriously though, got better soon. Your hand is your livelihood, after all. We love you :D[/small]

Well in terms of me getting a Tee shirt, it was a complete success.

Better to rest up than to take a chance and make it worse. I'll admit that I'll miss this story arc as I'm truly curious about what kind of person they're gonna end up hirin', but I can wait. Get well soon Leelee.

This comic makes me sad :( OK not sad, but like bummed out maybe

But even your "I'm hurt and can't draw much" comic was still pretty fun(ny).

So... does anyone know a wizard? Wizards heal stuff, right?

Get well soon LeeLee, but take your time (?)



*maybe replace first help with heal and second help with draw or something, you get the idea

Heya Elisa / LeeLee - man you've got a ton on your plate. Heal up and take the long view : your talent isn't going anywhere and we're stuck with our meatbags for the forseeable future, so we'd best treat them nicely in the meantime. :) Best wishes for a full recovery.

Saaad face. Your art injury is way more hardcore than any of my sports injuries ever were...except maybe the concussion that brought its friend, retrograde amnesia. But yes, heal up. We'll be here. Just promise you'll come back. I love the comic, and I don't want it to fade into oblivion like Stolen Pixels. Get well soon and good luck with school and everything else!

Man, I hadn't realised your arm was that bad. Now I feel kinda bad that you were doing these for us when you needed to rest. Take all the time you need, we will still be here when you get better, and we wish you a speedy recovery. :)

That is a long wait but none the less reasonable. I guess we shall assume the crew are having a slow and painful death deciding who to hire in the meantime.

Get well and rest, you deserve it! :)

Get well and don't stress it.
I'm currently having a knee injury which stops me from playing football and I think I can't join immediately as that would also interupt my comming studies.
Don't stress it and make that video game!!!

And editors. I'm currently in a brace because the tendons on my left arm are shot.

Also, those of you who can draw should make Lee Lee some Get Well Soon cards. I bet she'd really enjoy those. :)

Have you got a fen shui expert on staff? You never know. :p

Btw, your Ghost Trick iOS recommendation was totally worth every penny.

Done and done.
And I mean done.

Does it have that odd, but compelling, pay structure of getting the app free for the first 3-4 chapters but then normal price for a game app for the rest of the game or chapters in-game?

For symmetry, of course.

Ouch, I've had Carpal tunnel syndrome myself and it's no fun. It was "only" two weeks but I had strict orders not to use my right hand/arm for anything, poor leftie had to pick up all the work during that time.

You just make sure to rest and focus on the important bits.

I think everyone here understands. While we would love to get more chapters of the story arc right now, we also don't want you to be unable to work anymore. I'd feel terrible if you permanently injured yourself just to give me a chuckle for a few minutes. So heal up, ask Jensen for a good physical therapist, and keep doing what you have been doing. Maybe guest on another video with the LRR crew while you're at it. Plane tickets aren't that bad... says the guy who has never flown.

Man, when I saw this had 80+ comments, I knew something was up.
You know, since we now know of your injury (and completely understand it), if you're going to still do panels anyway (bless your artistic soul) you should take this opportunity to practice drawing with your other hand. Then by the time you heal, you'll be an ambidextrous drawing machine!

It's not as great as robot arms, but it's the next best thing right?

I wouldn't consider the robotic hand a real option. It seems fine at first, but it's a slippery slope...one day you're a perfectly functional artist with a robotic hand, the next you're Darth Vader.

It's like meth but worse - and you know what they say about meth: not even once.


Either way, what I'm trying to say - and what I'm sure you've inferred - through all this is that you should get well soon.

'Nuff love!
