Silent Pirate, Chapter 16, Pages 9-15: Slingshot Around The Sun


I have a lot to say…but in the interest of brevity, I’ll condense it to a few bullet points:

  • You guys are wonderful, you were more patient and supportive with me than I deserved, and you have no idea how much I appreciated your encouragement over this past month-and-a-half. Thank you all. 🙂
  • Being able to complete this animation means a lot to me. A lot of my self doubt’s dissipated from finishing this.
  • The song is “The Giant is Coming” by Voytek Pavlik, used under a Creative Commons 3.0 license. It can be found here.
  • Silent Pirate’s now at the homestretch. Only seven pages left! Comics resume on Friday.

    More patient and supportive than you deserved? We knew you were struggling, but expected you to come up with the goods at some point, and boy oh boy didn’t you do just that!?!

    The only disappointment I have with regards to this is only seven pages left. That’s all there is? It’s like coming to the end of a series of books/films/TV shows. You feel disappointed and empty, like a bunch of friends have disappeared.


    Be proud of this.

      Thank you, that means a lot to me. 🙂

      I hate that feeling too, and it’s a little worse as a creator (it feels kind of like graduating)…but the comic’s run its course.

      • Pedro Rhian

        I know that dragging the storyline to avoid an ending kills any story and any dignity the writer had, but it’s still not a happy feeling. I mean ending is both good and bad, so here’s to a good ending.

    All stories have a beginning, middle, and end whether they want one or not. Now, even though this good story is coming to a close, a good ending counts for a lot. It sucks when webcomics die on a cliffhanger. You crafted this comic well and shared it with us. Thank you.

    • Ahmed

      Thanks. I think the ending I have planned is a good one, so we’ll see!

    Awesome! That was really impressive!

    Stab it in the eye. Classic.

    Good job!

  6. Delphina

    Finally got a chance to catch up with my webcomics and watch the animation. LOVE IT.
