Well it's finely here, Ten years of Gratz. What a Journey it's been. Ten years of never missing a weekly update, ya not all updates where equal but they where all there. Now that it's here I feel humbled and tired Seeing how so many of my contemporary are no longer around. Seeing readers come and go. Even seeing how my style has changed over this decade of work. When I look back and see the journey I went on it leaves me tired. But that journey was done one step at a time. page by page, panel by panel. And that's how the journey will continue.

Thank you all readers and commenters for giving me the strength to carry on.

I've spent the last few months working on a little surprise! A full commentary video of Gratz! In this video I go through page by page of Gratz and talk a bit about my thoughts on stuff, hidden lore in Gratz, secrets, and sometimes I just describe a page because a fight is just a fight.

The first part I will link here, The rest will be up every 15 mins.
Gratz original trilogy

Thank you again, and good luck to anyone who tries to make it through all of the videos.

Thank you for reading it! It's sad when a story has no one to hear it.

Thank you! It may have started of derivative but at last it's mostly it's own thing now.

Oh, Earthmother: Red, Green, Starfire, Brewer...I've not been reading for 10 years, but I've read every page, and remember so many moments in my life that go back in the archives.

Thank you for a story that still entertains.

First short Worgen, I mean, short week of MOOvember: 11/1 - 11/5; GRATZ thankfully accepted 111 Total Votes, for an average of 22.20 votes/day, and finished at #85 on the Top Webcomic List.

For the second week of MOOvember: 11/6 - 11/12; the comic graciously harvested 120 Total Votes, an average of 17.14 votes/day, and advanced to #98 on the List. Did I say "advanced?" You know what I mean.

Third week of MOOvember: 11/13 - 11/19; GRATZ received not quite a cornucopia of 117 Total Votes, average 16.71 votes/day, and basted at #96 on the Top List.

And thank you for your hard work with the vote counts and comments. It's much more lively with you around.

Hey, congrats to Gratz!

I wasn't here from the beginning, but I'd been lurking for much longer before I began commenting. I remember the beginning of Arua's journey for sure and really enjoyed even the pen and paper, more WoW-inspired adventures of the old crew. I'm not much one for judging on art style if the story draws you in. I think I discovered Gratz in general when I tried to find WoW-themed comics. Sadly, a lot of good ones simply stopped updating, and it makes me glad that you're still going strong.

If you ever decide when to end things, Lacking, I'm certain that you'll give this story the ending that it deserves. Thanks for being there all this time, buddy.

Your most welcome, I started Gratz because I wanted more WoW comics to read as well. I guess I still want something to read so I'll keep on going!

And thank you for reading even when you where a lurker.

And I just freaking noticed that "Beginning Lacking" was drawn in your original style; and "10 Years Lacking" is drawn in your current style. Time is funny.

Yep it was interesting to reverse engineer my old style for that before drawing. I even have the green shirt my first avatar was wearing.

And from the videos we can see I even drew the desk I started at all those years ago.

(Which thanks for the sub I'm sure I'll be a very quiet channel.)
