dude, I have to hand to ya, you've created a character that has redefined the term Strong Woman. Gogo is truly the most original chraracter out there today. I hope you find more success with this chraracter

Love these family get-togethers.

Sorry, i kind of had to rush this one in time to run off and catch the game myself! Happy Thanksgiving! :D

story arc archive:…

(sorry for the late update...I had to spend a good portion of the day holding my head in my hands weeping bitter tears over the Packer game) we are! *deep breath* the "End"...for now. For a bit. For a moment. For this arc. For this run of the past few days.

This has been...shoot, this has been amazing. I've been figuratively blown away by the comments, notes, and overall vibes and reactions of the past couple of days over this story and these characters. You guys have really made this an experience to cherish. I'd feel very sad posting this "last" page if it weren't for all the energy and positivity that's been forced into my head.

I've been part of deviantart for something like 11 years, and putting together Bomango for almost as long. It's taken a lot of shapes and evolved with time, and it's gratifying to stop and see what it's become here and now. And I feel excited because I know there's so much more to come. In its own way, this particular story arc has been about more than the characters; it's a little about taking that uncertain but exciting next step. It might lead to good things, it might lead to rough patches, it might all explode...but you've got to try.

So thank you all, very very much. See you next time for more ;) Goodnight!

Four days of Bomango starts here! And we're off to a...not great start...

I probably speak for myself and a lot of people who find themselves inexplicably drawn to this type of action whenever feelings or emotions get hot; that post-outburst shutdown that tries to cauterize the bleeding and seal the wound. Push away and retreat. Protect your feels. Armor up again.

More tomorrow.

Hey there ho there!

A note about the current story arc of "Bomango" here in my dA gallery:

I'm pleased to tell you, I'm almost through! Starting tomorrow, there will be a new update each day until "You and Me" is complete! (Otherwise known as "Sunday") Which brings the "deviantART" portion of "Bomango" to a....well, not a "close", really. Not like I'm really stopping anything. It's a...huh. A new chapter? A new...something. Whatever. You'll see.


*ahem* Well, anyway. It's been a blast doing this so far, and I hope folks have enjoyed Bomango half as much as I enjoy making it, or more than that, even! Like, three quarters, or seven-eighths! But like I said, this is hardly the end.

There'll be a lot of new Bomango stuff coming with the new year, and hopefully lots of opportunities to support this ambition (if you so choose, of course). In the meantime, you'll still be able to find me and the characters here, and enjoy the next few updates!

peace! :salute:

What is Bomango about?
VanHeist Featured By Owner 1 day ago
Most people mistakenly believe it to be a treatise on interpersonal dynamics and societal mores, but it's actually an allegorical work about Keynesian Economics.

Or...none of those things :)

Your webcomic is quite amazing. I've spent the last 72 hours thoroughly enjoying it, from scraps to full length strips. You should really consider looking into creating a Patreon for support. I would happily donate to encourage your work.

You have a great comic, I hope you go far with it.
nomyai Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2015
I stumbled upon your wonderful work wandering through a series of forwards and random links.  Thank you for an incredibly enjoyable 3 hours of reading all your work!  Gogo and Andy make a fantastic couple, and the rest of the cast are just as wonderful.

I've added you to my Watch List so I can keep up with their adventures.  Thank you again for a great read.

Once the relationship arc with Gogo and Andy is settled, you should revisit the not-so-pure and embarrassed Didi referenced in her doll conversation.…
