Here we are, Chapter Nine! We're a bit over halfway done with the story, now - I hope you that have been reading have been having a good time :D I'm really excited about what happens in this, and the next chapter.

Also! I finally got that new shirt design up on redbubble after tinkering with it some - I'm not sure about it quite yet but I might make a second version with more understated colors because I think that ALSO looks good. You can check it out here, though!

The art work is really showing some good polish here. Looking forward to the second half of the story.

Thank you! I created this despite some mental health issues I had at the time - unfortunately the first few pages of this chapter, I'm not happy with them, but they serve their purpose I suppose.

Don't sell yourself short MP. One of my favorite things to see in comics like these, is how far the author grows and refines the art within their chosen style. And over the last few years you've definitely done that.
Not only in technique, but also character placement and the amount of detail per page.

And now, instead of falling into the Perpetual Comic Machine trap, you say that you have a finite story, a chosen end in sight, and plans for sister story-lines. You're handling this project better than most people I follow among the interwebs.

I must confess that I had a twinge of disappointment when I read that this story is now half over. I will console myself with the thought that your next endeavor, whatever it is, can't start until this one is done. <g>

It's true, but three things!

One: I've been doing this for three years, so that's three more ahead :')

Two: This is the halfway point if my estimations are correct, I MIGHT have to do more, or MAYBE less, but the latter is not likely.

Three: After this story is over, I'm just going to start telling new ones in the same universe. There will be some spill over :)

Better for a solid ending to be promised and worked for than for the story to endlessly meander on like a hedgehog on a mobius strip.

Oh wow, rarely I see someone mentioning actual comic length :O
That is cool. Gotta do as much as it needs :>
That is like another three or fours years though!

Yeah, I have an ending to this shambling plot! I don't wanna drag it on beyond its welcome. It's taken enough time to set up the second half, anyway, oy. :')
