Bonus Comic Coming, Eventually

Hey gang.  As you may have noticed, the new Chainmail Bikini strip is about a month behind.  The initial delay was my fault, this one’s about 2 1/2 times as large as a normal comic, and it took a long ass time to draw once I finally dug in to it.  The current delay is Shamus’s fault.  He has a ton of projects to work on right now, and has selfishly chosen to focus on the ones that pay him money and have hard deadlines.  Jerk.

We’re doing this one backwards, which doesn’t help.  Usually he’d write the script and then I’d draw it.  This time I had an idea for a comic, based on old running jokes we’d discussed about where the comic would go back when our plan was to keep making new CB strips forever.  Sadly, the art I came up with is too awesome, and Shamus has mentioned that he’s intimidated trying to live up to it and give a proper ending to the series, which is silly because the dude’s hilarious.

Hopefully I’ll have a final script from Shamus in the near future, and you guys will have a comic to enjoy in the next week or two.  In the mean time, here’s a sneak peak:


See you soon,

    For some reason, that “shadow of a circular cross-braced window” reminds me an awful lot of the TF2 logo.
