I adore this comic, I began reading around 2 weeks ago. I didn't realize I came in the middle of a break whoops. But I have finals going on right now, and school doesn't end for another two weeks, being able to re read this comic I must say has been quite relieving. Your art inspires me, and I hope you get back to uploading soon. I'm also planning on becoming a Patreon after finals, I'm excited to see all the work you do there as well <3

I truly do hope things are ok for the artist, however, it would still be nice if they could post SOMETHING to let us know when the comic is going to be on a hiatus. Even if it's just an otherwise blank page with words simply stating "Comic will be taking a break." with maybe a user post underneath explaining how long the break is expected to last. Keeping us updated would keep people from being upset or freaking out at a sudden lack of pages for weeks at a time.

Hey since it seems like we'll be waiting for a while yet, who wants to speculate about the comic? For example, does anyone think that a time skip is going to happen later in the comic? With the chapter start art we know that the trio are going to be at least 16-17 sometime during the story. If there's no time skip then there will have to be 4 years of stuff happening before they hit those ages and then Ganon will probably regain his memories and turn evil again or something. But seeing how only a few days have passed so far in the story, those four years could take a very very long time. So maybe for pacing's sake there will be a time skip.
Also speaking of the chapter start art I wonder who will be depicted on chapter four's. We already have art for the three main characters so maybe uhh Malon? Creepy deer guy? The shadowy figure from the beginning of chapter 2? Oliver? :P

Your effort to keeping us from desperating is admirable. Also, I dunno but I think there's gonna be a time skip, but maybe on chapter five or six, because the chapter three seems to be ending soon and Stephan-sensei and co. cannot skip without telling us how does it end this, if Link and Ganon find Talon or if they safely deliver the horse. The only way to know is to wait, of course

Your readers are willing to wait if something came up, and if you need to put it on haitus that's fine, but we would all appreciate it if you would at least tell us you're going on haitus, so we aren't looking to see if there's an update every day for months, and worrying that something happened to you. I'm sorry if this comment comes off as rude, that's not my intent, I'm just worried. We hope you're OK, and we're excited to see more of your comic when you're ready to continue posting!

I looked on their Patreon (I'm not a patron yet) and it looks like the last TDR update was early April (Ch 3 Pg 133). It could be that they are building a backstock on both platforms and thus (seemingly) taking a bit of a break (I imagine these pages take a long time to make), or they were weening both platforms (Smackjeeves and Patreon) as they take a long haitus/putting the series to rest.

I checked their Patreon (I'm not a Patreon yet) and it seems that they're probably just on hiatus, not vanished. Their last TDR Patreon update was a few weeks before the last update here. But since then they seem to have been uploading other things, mainly Patreon artwork and commissions (I'm guessing). Their last post of those was just a few days ago. So I don't think they're gone or done or anything; just taking a break. I just wish they had mentioned it in the news section.

Also, I quick read their Patreon goals and it seems that they do a lot of external work for a proper income (they only receive $1700 a month from Patreon), since Patreon isn't enough yet. They might be using this hiatus to do those type of things and the other commission type work also included on their Patreon. Also, their most updated goals (from July) mention they need to replace Stephan's tablet, as it has been damaged; which undoubtedly has also contributed heavily towards the lack of updates.

Well since comments are a hot commodity right now I guess I'll say something about this comic.
I've been following this webcomic (and another web comic that's just as amazing as this) since middle school. It's funny to look at all the time that has passed and realize this comic seems like it's barely progressed at all (in terms of story) . But I love everything about it. The art style, the lack of color, the characters, and the story are just absolutely stunning. I always wonder how in the world could some guy (or more...I don't know how many people work on this comic) make a story as captivating as this one.
Now that I've got my compliments out the way, I want to ask you guys something (even though it's kind of already been asked). What do you think will happen when (or if) Ganon gets his memory back? Would he just turn back into the power-hungry king he was, or be torn between his friendship with Link and his love for power? How will Zelda play into all of this? Will there be a time skip??? There's so many questions I have but there's no way to know the answer to any of them unfortunately.
I'm not really expecting anyone to answer any of these since no one else had their questions answered, but I just wanted to break my silence with a wall of text.
Also am I the only one that thinks this would make for a fantastic game?

It does for a fantastic game, indeed, @AJ -san. About whatever happens with Ganon when he gets back his memories, I think it could be causing division in Ganon's heart, but since we dunno how it will be, we'll just gonna make fanfics in our minds haha...
And I love how is drawn, all of the comic!!!

I adore this comic, I sing it’s praises to everyone I know who’s interested in zelda, but I can’t wait for something that isn’t coming anymore, its making me depressed to feel disappointment about no update everyday for months. I’m pretty sure thr artist has put the series to rest, and it’s best i do the same. Bye bye everyone, it was fun while it lasted

@Guest: I'd recommend coming back after a few months to a year. Unfortunately, it's not the first time he's had a long hiatus before and I felt the same way then (he was gone for a year that time) and after that he finally started being consistant (until this happened). I stated above the most likely reasons why he hasn't posted in a while, but I do believe he'll be back eventually.

@Guest: It's unlikely that they're done with the comic. They do take breaks each year that last months at a time. I'm sure we'll get an update eventually. I just think it'd be nice if they would say something along the lines of "Hey. The comic's taking a break." before stopping the updates for extended periods of time. I understand that life happens, but taking a few seconds to let readers know that there won't be updates for a while would be so helpful in decreasing disappointment and panic over a sudden lack of pages.

I don't think that's true. They don't seem to have said anything of the sort on Patreon or on the news section; which is something that, even if they're not great at mentioning when they're on hiatus, they would definitely mention given the gravity of that hypothetical news. Also, if this were true, they would probably post the pages from the Patreon little by little, as they are much more advanced over there and they seem to post the pages over here anyway, just 100 pages or so behind the Patreon readers. Finally, I doubt they'd leave it unfinished; at the very least for their Patreon's sake. Sure, they do other things, but I'm sure a lot of their Patreon support them because of this comic. They would probably lose a significant amount of support if they left it without finishing off the story.

I'm really failing to see where it says it's cancelled in this post from tumblr. "Hey! Its not cancelled, this is simply a side hobby and our lives are frequently super busy, this is one of the first things to be paused when life gets in the way. Tumblr is, sadly, the last place that we update the comic, but smackjeeves is pretty up to date (though there are still pages on patreon that haven’t been made public yet). There are still a good number of pages to be updated on tumblr as well, so keep an eye out. Two went up yesterday.


Thanks for your interest!"

Looks like it will eventually continue. This comic just gets put on the backburner when life happens and when they're working on bigger projects that happen to be more important to them.

Hey Smoop, thanks for trying to help us out by personally contacting the author/artist(s) of this comic and letting us know what they said. However, without an official word from the creator(s), I hope you can understand why it might be slightly difficult for me to just take the word of someone I don’t know who claims to have spoken with them. Again, thank you for your concern for everyone who’s still waiting on this comic but it’s also fine that some of us are choosing to wait for an official word before believing that The Demon Road will never be finished. Not calling you a liar but, as of yet, there’s just no proof that what you’re saying is true. No need to get upset; if you’re telling the truth, it will eventually be revealed and you’ll finally be vindicated and we’ll have no one to blame but ourselves for not listening to you. I imagine I’ll be able to move on fairly easily though, should that be the case.

I agree with Kunarion & Nova. Given the lack of proof at the moment, what they have and haven't posted publicly, that they have had long hiatuses in the past, among other things; I'm inclined to believe that they still intend to finish it; just that it may take them a while to update again. And if what you're saying is true, then I get why you're frustrated, but look at it from our perspective. There's no need to get angry or call us "dense"; we'd just rather hear it directly from them officially to be 100% sure.
