That drawing in the first panel took me a hot minute, heh!

Hey guys! So there are two more pages in this chapter, then the three week break will start. For this break, I want to post some simple drawings or just fun pieces on days that the comic would normally update, but I thought I would use this opportunity to reach out and see if anyone wants to submit guest art!

I don't care if you think your art "isn't good" or anything, I will happily post it here :) I'm also gonna reach out to people who have sent fan art before and ask if I can post them, too.

Anyway, have a great weekend everyone!

I have to say the shading in the last panel rocks pretty well also.

Aah, thank you! :D I'll have to talk about exchange art or something with you guys.

In terms of what I want, nothing in particular, really! If you wanna do something cute, something spooky, whatever you wanna do really :) You guys are great

Hm. What are the chances this guy influenced enough people to cause WW1? Actually, did the war happen like normal or was it manipulated by whatever higher being or is that a spoiler? I am not sure what the monsters would gain though...

Oh man, that's not a bad theory. It doesn't have any bearing on this story, really, but man I'd like to think that there was at least SOME involvement there :)

Good job of artistically conveying Chase's unease at considering this revelation.

SO my suspicions were correct-Narly is playing both sides of the fence.

If my thoughts are correct, I'm curious as to his motives...

Oh ho ho, solid bit of speculation :D

I don't like to comment on speculation too much but this is a good theory. We'll see how it plays out... :)

Am looking forward to it

Trust me, your comic is amazing and I'm looking very much forward to the storyline.

You've thrown quite a few curveballs and left me guessing...I'm assuming this will be one as well ;)

I bet Roy follows #BlackGirlMagic on Twitter for "investigative purposes".
Also holy crap that lil' miniature town in the first panel must have been a pain in the butt!! It looks great!

Hah! Yeah, he's doing some real close investigative work there...

Thank you, though, it did take me some time but I was pretty happy with the result :)

The more I see of Roy, the better I like him. He seems to be a good fit for our intrepid team of Chase & Clara! Even if he ends up stabbing them in the back down the road for an as of yet unexpected reason, it'll be a fun ride getting there. ;)

Hah! People really don't trust Roy - which makes sense, I've set him up as a sort of 'too good to be true' guy. I'm glad that you like him though!

The way Roy's face fades out into the rest of panel 1 is *particularly cool*.

I also liked the rather deft way you sidestepped some of the racism inherent to the original canon, there. It's a good, careful way to disentangle the modern mythos from the original.

Ah, thank you! :D

And, heh, I'm not completely sidestepping racism but I did reduce it a bit for this particular scene. There's a few reasons, but it was actually partly because I was running out of room in the chapter, if you can believe it.

In the original draft of this scene, Chase had a line along the lines of "Black Man - like a negro?" but I cut it as I realized my page real estate was running short :) I do like to avoid these things when I can, but at the same time it's important for the time period. I don't want to pretend everything was hunky dory.

Oh, it's definitely correct for the time period, but by dint of *showing* that the Dark Man can be of any gender or race, you neatly take a step back and demonstrate how your take on the canon is a thing in and of itself, without having to wave a banner around the issue, calling attention to it.

Sometimes little subtle things are all that's needed. And I just wanted to say it was nicely done.
