Seriously, Don't PANIC.
The comic will resume, it's not going anywhere. I know a lot of comics seem to go on hiatus and then disappear off the map. Letters to Volrane WILL celebrate it's 10th anniversary eventually, and probably be BARELY half-way through the story. This thing is years in the making and will be YEARS in the telling, and I'm not going to abandoned it just because work gets in the way from time to time.
So relax, have fun with your friends and family and do your thing. We'll be back on 1/3/2017 (or 3/1/2017 depending on how your calendar does its thing) and we'll pick right back up like we never left <3
