Longtime lurker, first time poster here. This seems to be the most active place in the TZH community, so I figured I would post this here in the hopes that it comes around to Jenny somehow.
So, I'm some random who's been silently following this comic since 2006. I've never stuck with any kind of serial publication this long before or since in my life, and TZH is the only webcomic I still check back in on every couple of weeks when it crosses my mind even though it's been a while since the last update.
I'm not here to bitch about that, though. Straight up: Jenny, you made something special. You took a fun concept about you and a few of your friends fighting zombies and turned it into one of the most immersive and engaging stories I have ever encountered in serial art form. I have spent years and years consuming zombie media in the hope of obtaining an alternative source of the bleak desolation and warm camaraderie that TZH possesses and I have never found anything quite like it. I always thought I liked zombie stories, but I've since learned that that is not true. Rather, I like your zombie story. The only thing that's ever come close for me is the first zone of a semi-obscure MMO called The Secret World. (Folks here might enjoy it. I recommend it if you like intelligent games with a heavy focus on storytelling.)
If you choose never to finish TZH, I don't mind. It's not my place to mind, because you chose to put this labor of love on the internets instead of keeping it to yourself, and if you don't want to go any further with it after such a long time of having done so, that ball is entirely in your court, too. A decade is a long while to spend working on the same thing, even without struggles with loss or depression.
Whether an ending comes or not, I want to thank you for letting us all in on this wonderful ride, for forever coloring my tastes in fiction, for legitimately influencing me growing up, for your years of storytelling and illustration, and for introducing me to the concept of the brick-flail.
To you regulars, perhaps I'll see you around more often. To Jenny: I wish you the very best of luck, and all happiness. If you turn your talents to another project, I hope that you may be willing to share it with us again. It's you who made TZH as wonderful as it is, of course, and I have no doubt that anything else you come up with will be as excellent or better.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled shenanigans.
