Well aren't you a couple of pips? LOL j/k

Still, gorgeous hair though! XD

Seriously, sorry to hear that though. Rose, I had to look up Hashimoto's disease. I don't envy you that. Cent, I had hoped your hands were doing better. :( Take all the time you need. Both of your health is infinetely more important than a page. Please take care! Hugs! (PS you don't suck!)

My wife has hashimoto's. Best thing she found is a good naturopath (here in Canada) who guides on diet and supplements. regular exercise and state of mind are some other main things to help.

Her body's response to stress flares it up. Being married to me *might be* adding to that stress.

Short term stress can be good and help you get through problems.

Long term stress makes pretty much every problem worse. :(

Dangnabit! The two of you don't suck!!!
Hang in there, get the treatment you need, and take all the time you need to recover.

Everybody sucks, everybody blows. It's called respiration. Ok, I admit, it's plausible that there are androids or something somewhere that doesn't, but everybody I've met does. And that includes the robots. Some of the robots suck and blow at the same time, even.

Just saying, so you know.

That said, I agree, the author and artist here are good people.

Get well soon! Best would be yesterday, but if that's not in stock, let's start ASAP.
mjkj 24th Jun 2020, 3:59 AM edit delete reply

Get well soon...

...and thank you for letting us know

Take your time health and RL always come first!

...and congrats on page 1700 :D
HiFranc 24th Jun 2020, 5:41 AM edit delete reply

Wishing you both that you get well soon.

*sends some some nuclear grade anti-inflammatories to Centcomm *

*sends an immune teacher to Rose (and some Levothyroxine)*

I'm sorry that you are both suffering health problems, and I just hope you can both be returned to health and happiness.
Oldarmourer 24th Jun 2020, 9:04 AM edit delete reply
I'm the only one in the house, including the dog, that doesn't take Synthroid...
I'm starting to think it's the water...I don't drink fu--nction in it
Hope a simple med can sort it out for you, Rose
and Cent, I sincerely hope the surgery can give some extra relief.
of course, the way 2020's going you could both end up with new syndromes named after you...ask for royalties.
Sheela 24th Jun 2020, 9:37 AM edit delete reply

Yeesh ... 2020 is kicking butts !
I hope you get well soon.
Sheela 24th Jun 2020, 7:57 PM edit delete reply

According to those videos, I have concluded that 2020 has a mean streak to it.

Jesus Christ! You guys sound like you need to take care of yourselves and take it easy. The comic can wait.

Can we get those hashbrowns with a couple of....eggs ?
Tokyo Rose 25th Jun 2020, 5:24 PM edit delete reply

Oldarmourer 25th Jun 2020, 7:58 PM edit delete reply
I was asking Cent... *ducks*
Sheela 26th Jun 2020, 3:32 AM edit delete reply

Not gonna lie .. hashbrowns with eggs sounds real good to me, right about now. 😁
robnot 26th Jun 2020, 10:29 AM edit delete reply
"hashbrowns with eggs," throw in some sausage,, add spices, a little cheese .. you have my breakfast burrito, . that im having now. :)
megados 26th Jun 2020, 10:38 AM edit delete reply

If I'm going to go that far I'm gonna toss in some diced onions, and maybe green peppers, too ;)
Ryu Santos 27th Jun 2020, 2:45 AM edit delete reply

Y'all are missing the most important parts of hash browns and eggs: bacon and ghost pepper sauce.

stabby GREEDY vampires in white coats, Rose... Don't forget that you have to pay for the privilege of your visit to Torquemada's pleasure garden!
Gilrandir 24th Jun 2020, 2:33 PM edit delete reply
It appears you are both bonding over needles this week. I will hope that medical science labors in vein, not in vain. With luck you will transcend all the pills the flesh is heir to, and soon be feeling yourselves more. <grin>
Thracecius 24th Jun 2020, 3:52 PM edit delete reply

Hey...uhh...can we get more of these kind of updates? I like the art!

Yipes! Don't throw anvils! Those hurt!

Ahhh! Watch were you stick that pitchfork!

*runs away from the angry mob*

P.S. Hope you both feel better soon, Cent and Rose! :)
Oldarmourer 25th Jun 2020, 10:11 AM edit delete reply
'crappy stick figures' are always good, they're just rarely about good things :(
makes you both love and hate them at the same time...
Oldarmourer 25th Jun 2020, 8:53 PM edit delete reply

now there's an idea...
an entire 'crappy stick figure' short story while Cent's hands heal...
you could do anything since most of the fine detail would up to the reader's imagination and stick figures rock :)
it should be easier and faster to do, satisfy your insatiable audience and give you both a little break
especially if readers could suggest storylines (canon or non-canon) it might be even more fun, we have some good ideamongers like Sheela, DLKmusic et al
robnot 26th Jun 2020, 10:37 AM edit delete reply
just a reminder Rose does good art.. she just hates it,, she is a writer , not an artist...
that sed..
why not have another artist do a another side story.??
Oldarmourer 30th Jun 2020, 10:26 PM edit delete reply
We've seen Rose's art both here and in Patreon, she's very talented, but if you're going to make stick figures work you need to be VERY talented indeed and these ones work so well...

somebody once said about Johnny Hart and his BC strip, something along the lines of...
"if you're going to put two unwashed cavemen in front of a simple backgroud, you've got to place them just right"

Minimalist art looks easy, can be difficult, and still has a compelling look to it :)
KarToon12 24th Jun 2020, 5:25 PM edit delete reply

I hope both of you feel better soon! <3
Haegan2005 24th Jun 2020, 6:36 PM edit delete reply

Both of you get better.
Sheela 24th Jun 2020, 7:59 PM edit delete reply

How did the trip to the stabby vampires in white coats go ?
Oldarmourer 25th Jun 2020, 10:13 AM edit delete reply
with this year's luck, now she has anemia too...
Tokyo Rose 25th Jun 2020, 5:27 PM edit delete reply

Usually, the lab does blood draws as a walk-in. Right now, thanks to the COVID-19 safety measures, the wait time is like 2 hours. I need to remember to call them to try to make an appointment, or else clear my entire fucking afternoon, apparently.
Oldarmourer 25th Jun 2020, 8:57 PM edit delete reply

it's all 'take a number' here and if you're not there before 0700, you'll have a long wait until they close promptly at 0900
Sheela 26th Jun 2020, 3:34 AM edit delete reply

Wait, wait . . they give you a whole 2 hours of opening time ?

.... luxury !!
Rashala 26th Jun 2020, 2:12 AM edit delete reply

You two do not suck sheesh. Do what you need to for your real life problems, we`ll still be here when you get to feeling better. No worries
Oldarmourer 26th Jun 2020, 11:34 PM edit delete reply
I've been up way too long...
Looked at this week's picture again and thought...
"Cent's casting 'fireball' and Rose is clutching a holy symbol trying to turn her..."
and now I can't unsee it...I read way too many D&D themed comix o.O
Oldarmourer 26th Jun 2020, 11:35 PM edit delete reply
make that "Cent is standing like a zombie trying to cast 'fireball' while being turned..."
CptKerion 29th Jun 2020, 3:39 AM edit delete reply
I was thinking flaming hands honestly. Cent wouldn't cast fireball at that close of a range.
megados 29th Jun 2020, 9:05 AM edit delete reply

Fire Bolt wouldn't be too bad there either. Also, it's a cantrip, so she wouldn't deplete a spell slot. Yeah, fireball would be a bit much there; they'd both be toasty! (Unless she targets it at least eighteen feet behind Rose XD) Also could use Wall of Fire, as long as she doesn't get the hot and cold sides mixed up! ;) For extra effect, shape it into a ring. Damage when cast, damage per turn, and damage passing through it to escape!
Oldarmourer 29th Jun 2020, 1:32 PM edit delete reply
duh...zombie not lich.......fireball it is
Oldarmourer 29th Jun 2020, 1:37 PM edit delete reply
a zombie sorceress wouldn't need braaiiiinnnsss...
which is good because they're currently sitting beside an order of eggs masquerading as hasnbrowns ;)
a zombie mage wouldn't have much in the way of Charisma, true...
but starting out from our loveable artist, there should be enough left over to chuck a few spells around...that or it's on a ring ;)
Oldarmourer 29th Jun 2020, 1:42 PM edit delete reply
oooorrrr....maybe she's holding her hands out to try and stop from being turned and they're what burst into flames first ;)
Sheela 30th Jun 2020, 2:09 PM edit delete reply

No, no, no, no ... Clearly, Cent is using the low level wizard spell Burning Hands !!
SFCGator 29th Jun 2020, 5:26 PM edit delete reply
Get well and be safe. Sending health vibes your way.
Mac 30th Jun 2020, 8:01 PM edit delete reply
Mr Miyagi doing the Reiki healing technique. Dunno if anyone remembers, where Mr Miyagi heals Daniel after rubbing his hands together and then laying them on his boo-boo...

Just imagining some healing going on with you both!
Ryu Santos 1st Jul 2020, 1:11 AM edit delete reply

One week later...
Cent and Rose,
I hope you're having good luck on the medical front. With nothing but good news on the horizon. 👍
megados 1st Jul 2020, 7:49 AM edit delete reply

Re: A/N, Hi Rose; thanks for the update. I'm glad Cent can get in, but sad that she has to. Please don't worry about page lapse. Stay safe you two!
megados 1st Jul 2020, 2:25 PM edit delete reply

Re: A/N-2:, Hi Cent! I'm glad to know that you are COVID-free so far! Now stay that way! Good luck with your surgery, and make sure to let it heal; don't go nuts right away. XD

We all want a good outcome for you!

PS, we'll keep voting! :D
Centcomm 2nd Jul 2020, 2:31 PM edit delete reply

thank you guys.
Sheela 2nd Jul 2020, 4:20 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, a bit of bad new/good news situation, huh ?

Well, I do hope you get to stay Covid-19 free. 😀
Oldarmourer 1st Jul 2020, 11:49 AM edit delete reply
Thanks for keeping us posted on developments.
I really, really, really, really, hope the surgery goes as well as mine did and the relief is as fast, but....
Don't, don't DON' anything to aggravate the area while it heals...
The dog pulled on her chain when I was letting her out and pushed it against the almost healed incision
That opened it a little under the skin and now I can see the tendon move whenever I open my hand..
Interesting to watch but it left it a little weak...
They'll probably bandage your hand around a ball while it heals...leave it there.
If they don't, do it yourself...awkward, but taking it off too soon (except for physio) is not good, I found that out the hard way.

Don't think you 'owe' us anything page-wise, we can amuse ourselves for as long as it takes ;)
robnot 2nd Jul 2020, 9:31 AM edit delete reply
knowing CentComm actual,,, she will go stir crazy ,, not being able to use her computer.. while hands heal..
.. Rose might have to take her compy, till they heal...
Oldarmourer 2nd Jul 2020, 2:03 PM edit delete reply
where there's a will, there's a way...I managed to use mine quite easily, she should have an easier time of it with the microsurgery, my hand was opened from the base of the finger all the way across the palm and it was more functional and less painful than it was need to keep moving the fingers anyway so no adhesions form
Sheela 2nd Jul 2020, 4:25 PM edit delete reply

What, wrap her hand around a trackball so she can still work ?

Geeeenius ! 🤣
sigpig 1st Jul 2020, 3:59 PM edit delete reply

Best of luck with your surgery! And great news about that other thing too!
mjkj 2nd Jul 2020, 6:43 AM edit delete reply

Take your time to heal, Cent <3
...and you, too, Rose <3

Oh, for those interested CF has a new format for the comics:
megados 2nd Jul 2020, 7:52 AM edit delete reply

Yes! The Infinite Scroll feature! It works great for binge reading! With all the comments on the Datachasers pages, it might break up the stride though.
Oldarmourer 2nd Jul 2020, 2:07 PM edit delete reply
not a big fan of that system, especially with the length of the comments to scroll through if all you want to do is reread the comic...granted you can still use the 'arrow keys' to navigate and as long as this page doesn't change format, everyone should be happy. Choices are a good thing. :)
mjkj 3rd Jul 2020, 10:19 AM edit delete reply

No, the comments won't break up the reading - there are only the first few shown - the rest you need to click to read
Oldarmourer 2nd Jul 2020, 2:09 PM edit delete reply
It's alright for now, sometimes change is good but change for change's sake alone rarely is...
I just hope they don't end up doing what smackjeeves did and drive all the artists away
Sheela 2nd Jul 2020, 4:28 PM edit delete reply

I could see that format work well for webtoon style of comics though.

But yeah, page based comics like Datachasers, I would probably use the arrow keys method too.
mjkj 3rd Jul 2020, 10:20 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, I do not like that webtoon/tapas format - but this one, strangely appeals to me
Oldarmourer 3rd Jul 2020, 11:06 AM edit delete reply
I like following links to new comics but I've probably passed over a lot of good ones
because I flat out refuse to read tapas/webtoon/smackjeeve formats
this one I like
