884 Movin’ On Up


It is with great regret that I must announce that due to recent and persistent health issues, Bohemian Nights will be dropping down to just once a week (Mondays) until further notice.

For the past few months I have had increased problems with severe headaches, dizziness, and head and neck pressure that has made working on the comic for any long period of time next to impossible. It’s still doable in short bursts of time but I have come to realize there is no way I can keep up with the twice a week schedule because of this.

I truly hate that it’s come to this. It slows the comic storyline quite a bit and it’s not at all what I wish to happen. But it’s gotten bad enough, especially in the past few weeks, that I’m left with little alternative but to lighten my time hunched over drawing on the computer.  

I hope all of you will understand. I hope that one day when my body will recover enough so I can resume my twice a week schedule, but for now, unfortunately, this is how it will have to remain for a while. I know this may lessen my readership or Patreonship, (and I accept that), but I have little alternative.  I still maintain that I have some of the best fans out there, and if it weren’t for all of you, this comic would not exist.

Let me emphasize: I am not ending the comic. I’m just slowing it down a little. Thanks for understanding.

  1. Eric,
    Health and real life are more important – take care of yourself FIRST. BN is a wonderful story and love it very much BUT it is a story – not reality. Reality is home and health and all that. Hope things improve but those symptoms may be something serious – it would be a good thing to get them checked out.

  2. Take care of yourself, man. Do whatever you need to do. That’s what’s important! Don’t make me come up there!

  3. Gotta take care of you for there to even be a comic. Considering all the detail you put into just a single page, it’s amazing you’ve managed two pages a week for so long with health issues.

    Take care of you first.

  4. OH Eric, I am so sorry to hear about your health 🙁 Please, feel free to take any time you need. Health is highly important, take any medical attention/care you need. And trust me, you DO NOT WANT TO HAVE A MIGRAINE. I had one and wanted to shoot my head off. So, if you need, take breake as long as is necessary. Healthy Eric is Happy and Effective Eric 🙂

    I like that joke at panel 1. I must try it with my friends 🙂 I love Shannon’s T Shirt. She looks so gorgeous and sexy in it.

  5. Everyone else beat me to it, but it bears repeating: take care of you first, Eric. Of course I will miss two updates a week, but one page from you is like two from just about any other comic I read on a regular basis, so I’m good. I really enjoy the story, your characters and interacting with you in the comments. I certainly can’t claim to be a top supporter on Patreon, but I am very happy that I can contribute. When your health and situation change enough for you to safely do more than once a week I am certain that you’ll let us know, but until then just keep chugging along and we’ll be here, enjoying each new page. 🙂 Oh, and I completely agree with Gorbi, Shannon looks great on this page, especially the last panel! 😉

    Also, not sure if you have already looked into it, but if you’re open to the idea, you might want to see if you need chiropractic care. I’ve been seeing a chiropractor for over 15 years now and it has made a big difference in my overall wellness, including a lot fewer headaches, so it’s worth investigating. If you have any questions about it you’re welcome to reach out to me, maybe I can even help you find one similar to mine, who uses a lot of techniques that are quite gentle. Cost may be more of an issue for you, especially if your health insurance (if you have it) doesn’t cover it, but any reputable provider will be upfront about costs, coverage and ways to help you find the right treatment.

  6. Looks like Dave’s downward spiral just sped up a little. I think he’s got a rough ride ahead, hope he pulls through it OK.
    Eric, I’ll be happy to read Bohemian Night on any schedule that works for you. Most of us don’t get enough sleep or exercise, and none of us is getting any younger. Do whatever you need to do to take care of yourself!

  7. Reading the new pages were the highlight of my Fridays… I guess I’ll wallow in despair till Monday
    Kidding aside, one’s well-being and health always come first. We understand and respect your decision, so feel better and positive thoughts on your recovery!
    BTW, loved Sean’s joke to Dave and hope he’ll never get it

  8. In my erudite and elegant fashion, I add:
    “Yeah. What they said.” 🙂
    If you’re healthy, there may be a comic. If you’re not, there won’t be. We want you healthy, even if this were the last episode.

  9. I hope you’re taking care of yourself Eric. Certainly I understand that the comic will be just once a week, or whenever. As for the story, I think if a band’s name is “Marshmallow Steamshovel” it darn well better sound good! 😉

  10. Take care of yourself, Eric. Your health and well being is much more important than entertaining us, your readers. Take it easy and get well soon.

  11. Hi eric! Like Gorbi1985 said, a migraine is a literal NO-GO! Luckily (othe than my mother 🙁 ) i found som effective painkillers, but even after they kicked in i´m still left foggy and totally unproductive.
    So Take. Your. Time.
    And do (or leave out) whatever you can to reduce your stress levels.
    These are weird times… so Take Care!

  12. Don’t be hard on yourself my friend, we’ll be here for you whatever pace is right for you.

  13. I second what Rob said. We want the best for you Eric. Re BN, I think it’s interesting to see Dave’s apparent lack of interest in Mateo’s announcement.

    Thank you all for your kind words of support. I really appreciate them.
    Doing a little better but it’s obvious my body is telling me to slow down for a while.
    I’m still looking forward to many years on this comic.
    You guys are the BEST!

    1. No, no…you’re the best! Everyone says so and you can’t argue with that, right? 😀
