Howdy! Many thanks as always for taking the time to read Paradigm Shift; I’m recently moved back in at school, but regular updates will continue on schedule (hopefully!). I’m currently working on a sort-of PS sequel, which is fun and exciting, and the plan is to get enough of it done by the end of PS so I can just follow up seamlessly with that. I’m terrible with plans though, so we’ll see how this goes.

If you haven’t noticed from the most recent pages, Paradigm Shift does sort-of adapt some characters from other literary works (The Player is another one of these, heavily inspired by Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead). This is partially due to the fact that, when I originally thought of and drew PS last year, I had to fulfill some assignment requirements, but also because I’m just a very referential person: books I read and things I watch tend to influence me, even if I don’t intend them to. With this in mind, I’ve complied a handy bibliography of sorts over here. These texts are by no means required reading (PS can stand up on its own without secondary texts, I think), but if you’re interested, feel free to check it out! The Search for Meaning is the book that’s heavily referenced throughout the comic, since PS is heavily built upon Ford’s concept of “worldviews”. Plus, I personally think it’s really interesting, if you’re in to thinking about those sort of things.

Anywho, that’s all I’ve got from this end! Hope you’re enjoying the story thus far; believe me when I say it’s gonna keep getting wilder from here on out. c:
