Here we are.

The break is over, I've got a decent buffer ready to go once again, we should be okay going forward. I feel like I've said it before but this chapter really sets some stuff in motion, it features some scenes I've been looking forward to for a while :)

I really appreciate that everyone allowed me to take a break, it was very much needed. My employment and financial situation haven't changed, but I'm working on it. It's the best I can do. If you do have the inclination to help me out financially and you have the spare funds (don't hurt yourself to toss money at me!) please remember to check out my patreon, located here!

Beyond that, I've sorta got my feelers out to work on a PRINT version of the comic - I'd be seeking to do trades, 3 chapters each, and from the printing costs I've been able to find it looks like the cost for a crowdfunding might be around 5,000, which I think is at least within the realms of possibility. I need to work out all my stuff first, but if you've ever bought a Hellboy comic they'd be about the same dimensions and paper feel. Let me know if the sound of a print version is exciting to you like it is for me :D

Anyway, just glad to be back. I am greatly looking forward to some of the reactions coming up, this chapter ;)

Ah, thank you! I wanted to make a really stellar chapter opener :)

And good to hear! We're months out from me starting this whole shebang, but I'd love to get it done.

Don't you go messin' with Clara, boys, else I'ma gonna hafta mess wit' you. >:(

Hmm...a regular comic book format, eh? For just the first three chapters to begin with, or would it be the first 9 chapters in 3 books? Either way, I'd be interested. :)

Heh, she is a fan favorite :)

Not necessarily regular comic book but a trade - they usually have higher quality binding, a nice outer cover, and a good chunk of pages. The first book would be the prologue and then chapter 1-3, plus any pages thanking people who back it, my patrons, and perhaps some sketches/extra art/guest art, I'll figure the rest out :) Glad to hear you're interested though!

HOLY CRAP, the SHADING on Irwin looks fantastic in a whole new way. Are you trying a new method??

If you make a print comic I will throw money at it!!

Thank you! I was using a new method for this cover, it takes a little extra time so I haven't incorporated it into making comic pages yet.

But yesss, I'm happy to hear that :)

hmm, "Splinters" - will things that are broken come together or with things fall more apart?

Looks great!

I try to be just the right amount of clever without getting too pretentious with what the chapters mean. I've failed a few times, but I do like this one :)

"or with things" -> "or will things"

Curses, why do I only notice such stuff too late?

Welcome back!

Looks like Jack and Irwin are having an "angry contest".
