    Welcome back! Glad for the update.

  2. Eminormp says:

    You have no idea how happy this update made me! :D
    I love all the little snippets of the past, the artwork, the amazing characters, everything!

  3. Christine says:

    I don’t mind the wait so long as every update is as funny as the last few. Oh man, just one page and I’m cracking up!

    The Civil War: How history nerds get turned on.

  5. nessili says:

    Yes, yes I do want to grab him :)

    (btw, that dappled sunlight look is pretty cool!)

  6. Bex says:

    More gorgeous tree shadows!!!! <3 Jeremy's face in panels 3 and 4 is sooooooo cute. ^.^

  7. xscythe7x says:

    Also, nice … new style a little?

  8. Jeanette says:

    I know the feeling, Charlie…
    Entertainingly enough, American war history is what brought my man and I together (he’s a history buff and he successfully got me hooked on it, too).

  9. RJ says:

    Ooh, I like Long haired Charlie in this later style! :D (long haired adult Charlie, I mean.)

    Really, Charls? Do you really think TESS would want to do something like that? Come on-it’s TESS!

  10. Katsuya says:

    Yay!!!!!! Update!!

    Da’aw…those two are so adorable together…I agree with xscythe7x, new way of drawing faces? A bit more detailed now; Jeremy’s face in panel 2 is so cute~ ^-^

  11. Cody Elizabeth says:

    Love it! Thanks for the update!

  12. selkath says:

    Oh, love the shadows from the tree, they look too cool. :]

  13. Amanda says:

    The lighting here is really fabulous. Love the look of the page and glad to have an update!

  14. maglorius says:

    Welcome back! Boys that blush make me squee.

  15. maglorius says:

    I don’t want to be greedy, but is there anyway to get the http://dovecotecrest.com/comic/seeing-the-sun/ strip (the kissing one) in a wide format for a wallpaper? It’s just so beautiful and the lighting is so perfect.

  16. Elena says:

    Think before you speak, Charlie, otherwise awkward turtles may ensue.

  17. Neva Sirenda says:

    Oh yay oh yay! Update! And a beautiful one, too — just love that dappled lighting! You did that so well, particularly Charlie’s face in that next-to-last panel. I love me some smitten nerds.

  18. Dragonblossom says:

    Its great to see a new page! I’m still not able to use the RSS link though…it brings up lines of code and an error message. This is what I see:

    XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
    Location: http://dovecotecrest.com/feed/
    Line Number 2, Column 1:

  19. Jessi says:

    Ooooooohhhhhhhhh Charlie. xD You know YOU’RE allowed to want to grab him and kiss him, right? You’d've smacked Tess if she had said yes. xDDDDD

    This is a very pretty page :333

  20. Yochva says:

    Love it! Does Jeremy have some Asian ancestry? Those eyes are pretty almond-shaped…

    My only comment is that Tess seems to be slouching a bit too much in the last panel if she’s wearing a corset. Unless she’s not, and this is, like, practice day or something. I also wasn’t able to tell, in the first panel, whether she was wearing full hoops or not. Care to explain? I’m interested!

  21. Addie says:

    But…but…but…there needs to be MOOOOREEEEEEE!!!

  22. Impatient says:

    So once every two months (or more?!) is the new norm?

  23. Jeanette says:

    I have now read the comic at least five times through, and I have reached the same final thought:


    I’m experiencing withdrawal symptoms from it! o.O

  24. kvweber says:

    Might I inquire why you saved these as GIF files? The horrid compression does your beautiful work no justice!

  25. Marjorie says:

    Am I the only one wondering if we’ll ever get another update? I understand being busy, but come on, there hasn’t even been a post about when we might see a new page!

  26. Peach says:

    Update? Yes please?

  27. lars says:

    i’ve been following this web-comic since the near-beginning and though i never comment, i truly do love it…
    so yea, i stand with those above me, please update soon, even if only to tell why there hasn’t / will not be another page.

    update plox?

  28. Coyo says:

    An update! A gorgeous one, too. YYYYYEEEESSSS

  29. Shadebreeze says:

    Just found and read the comic, start to finish. Brilliant! Love the style, love the history…I could go on. I won’t join in the parroting requests, but how’re you guys doing?

  30. Rick in Mexico says:

    OK, I’ve set my alarm clock for June. Nudge me if I’m not awake by July. Hey! The 150th anniversary of Lee taking command of the Army of Northern Virginia! (OK, I looked it up, but I knew it was about then.)

  31. Eleanor Barlow says:

    Wow!!! New reader, this is an amazing comic!! Hooked me in right at the start!!!!

  32. Blue says:

    Hello. I just spent the better part of my evening reading this entire comic.

    I LOVE IT.

    I may have completely freaked my brother out because I laughed out loud (at Ben) about every five seconds.

  33. Joejmz says:

    Love the story!

    I may be a hopeless romantic, but I always wonder how someone can give up love for a job, so having Charlie come back had me hooked.

    The art is great. It flows so well and really supports the dialogue.

    I will keep coming back often to see if you’ve been able to add more.

  34. Rick in Mexico says:

    Mid-June almost here! Anniversary 149 of Gettysburg on the horizon! What awaits us in the Dovecote Crest universe?
