Hi Jon, lovely to see you asking about my little comic! :) I took a much needed break after Xmas 2012 after a continuous run of almost 7yrs. I came back to the Duck in July this year (2013) and after about 5 updates the Duck went down and has only just got on it's feet again. However we are up and running normally again with weekly updates,currently on page 19 of chapter five. Because the Duck was down for over two months I felt I need a back-up so loaded the entire archive onto SmackJeeves too, so from now on I'll be updating both sites weekly. I've also started a Facebook page too so that we can keep better in touch with our readers in future.
There are no details showing what happened to the webcomic "Simply Sarah". However, it could be that it has taken a break to come up with more interesting perspective. You can check the site for updates
