An important note about Dire Hearts

Sparkler Monthly is sad to announce that Dire Hearts is going on indefinite hiatus. Christy Lijewski has been dealing with chronic health issues for some time now, and while she powered through the launch of Sparkler like a champ, her ongoing problems are preventing her from making further progress on the series for the time being, in spite of her best efforts. We hope that this hiatus will be short-lived, and we’ll do our best to continue to provide quality comics content while Christy’s taking some time off to recover. And don’t fret–we’ve got a few things in store that we hope you’ll be excited about!

In the meantime, please join us in wishing her a speedy recovery!

    I hope it is just a question of time and not too serious.. Get better soon, Christy! We’ll wait for you to come back and take us to the mysterious Tower then ^_^

    I hope it’s nothing too serious. I wish Christy all the best in recovering! Can’t wait for her to come back with flying colours :)

    I have been a huge fan of Christy for a long time- it would be devastating if what she is dealing with is serious! Best wishes to her and even if she cannot continue working, I hope she recuperates and feels wonderful.

    Hey Christy, I’m one of your new fans this year and after reading Sparkler Editorial of you being ill I’m wondering if you’re all right or even still alive since it’s been three years? If only there was an update on how you’re doing this year.

      Well, this was good timing–Christy is stable and managing, if not exactly recovered. She’s still not able to do much work, but she’s healthy enough to come to AX and hang out with her editor for an afternoon, which was great fun!
