Today’s page took an interesting path to completion.
I’d originally scripted everything out for this chapter, and what we see now was actually (the first half of) page 0183. I decided a week or so ago that the page 0182 I’d written was unnecessary, and put it up on Patreon as a deleted scene with scribbly art as a bonus for the backers. (If you want to see it and don’t want to give me money, ask one of them nicely to share it, they’re all welcome to do so.) Then I realized that the action on the page that was 0183 and is now 0182 was too much for one page, and so I split it up into two pages. THEN I realized that I needed to add panel 1, or our heroes would be jerks who didn’t ungag Julius until after attempting to defuse the bomb.
Anyway, that’s the path from my brain and pen to your screen. We see the second half of Plan B next week. Hopefully it works better than Plan A did.
