A few months ago, I decided to end my comic on its 10th anniversary of publication. Writing and drawing a weekly comic requires a certain way of thinking--every idea distilled into four or five (or six) little boxes.
It's an infectious way of thinking.
As cliche as it may sound, I decided to end the strip to progress as a cartoonist; To write and draw other things that don't fit easily in four or five (or six) little boxes.
And so, the end is here, dearest reader! I present to you, the last episode of Teaching Baby Paranoia as a regularly updating weekly comic! (I'm hesitant to say the last episode, as I'm certain I'll draw future comics that mine the same themes. But, the last for now!)
It's been a good run and Teaching Baby Paranoia has been a fine, fine comic.
Head and shoulders above any other comedic-historical-fiction-(kind of) strip I've come across.
One of my favorite regular webcomics. Indeed, one of my favorite comic strips.
(I guess I waited long enough to let you know that.)
Thank you for sharing it all these years, it will be missed.
But I'll look forward to whatever you have coming.
Hopefully I'll have new comics for you to check out sooner rather than later!
I'll miss the comic! Thank you for providing us with such wonderful art and entertainment. And good luck in whatever you do next.
Thank you! The pleasure is all mine!

Ten dang years! Congratulations, Bryant. I've very much enjoyed the trip.
I am deeply saddened by the end of "Teaching Baby Paranoia" which I tended to read regularly at work for the past 8 years (I'd like to claim all 10, but I didn't have a job then). I miss that ironic, conflicted, erroneous narrative.
I would have been deeply saddened sooner, but I'm in Mongolia, and my internet is slower, so I've been negligent of late.
I hope to read more of your work soon. In fact, I may start now, depending on how your new projects reach the masses.

been without iNet (tm) access for some weeks now, so the end of TBP has just occurred for me (time is relative).
Really enjoyed it, I do thank you for all those years of slightly askew history. Definitely one of the better strips online, it shall be missed.
I'll be watching for whatever you come up with next. Mayhaps it will answer the question "why are so many good web comics shutting down right now?" Whatever your next endeavors be, luck to you with them.
