I debated putting this up here, or even doing the challenge to begin with. I'll leave that up to the people here.

I know it's difficult to read the text, so if anyone would like links to the larger comics feel free to ask.

I'm glad you did decide to post.
No kidding, this is one of my favorite hourlies I've seen so far. That dragon at the top, and dog a few panels down...I loved them.
I realize you were talking about some really personal stuff (from what I could gather, the text Was a bit small) but your design is spot on, especially with the demons.

It took me a while to realize that I forgot a page!



And here are links to larger versions of the pages:

The good news is that I have gotten medication since I made the comic on Sunday. We had to pay for it out of pocket, but the expenses weren't as bad as we thought they were going to be. So I am doing better.

I don't normally draw when I'm in a deep depression, so it was difficult to stay focused for more than a few moments at a time. Now that I'm feeling better I can say I probably made this because people often ask me what it's like going through a manic or depressive episode. It's not like a normal high or low, it's violent. You can't just "pull yourself out of it" (although I get told to do this all the dang time and it never ceases to irritate me.) Since the opportunity was there I wanted to illustrate the real struggle that comes with having this disease.

Oh, and that Jake in hour 5 also made his own hourly comic here:

His sense of humor was one of the things that kept me going. So if you need a pick me up from my comic read his.
