Hey! It’s a comic!
I’ll return this afternoon with a blog post detailing stuff. But for now, just enjoy the new page. Do note that the change to all silhouettes isn’t a permanent one, but an artistic choice driven by the necessity of actually finishing this page. Characters with outlines and shading and whatnot will return on the next page.
EDIT: 7 hours later, Bloggery!
I just wanted to tell you guys a bit about what I’ve been up to and why I haven’t been able to make a comic. If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you already know, but here’s some news for the rest of you. A couple of weeks ago, my beautiful and awesome girlfriend fell down her back steps and sprained one ankle and broke the other. We’ve been spending a lot of time going to hospitals and seeing experts and renting a wheelchair and getting scans and last Friday going in for surgery, and then dealing with post surgery healing up. As you can imagine, this was a bit more important than making comics. Also, spending a lot of time with a loved one in pain meant I really wasn’t in the mood to draw our heroes (who I’m rather fond of) getting shot and stabbed and beat up. Unfortunately, that’s sort of what’s happening right now and I can’t just jump to a light happy part of the story.
As I mentioned in a previous blog post, due to this and the current heat wave and whatnot, I’m dropping to a one day a week update schedule for the near future. I’d like to return to two comics a week eventually, maybe in a month or so. Today’s silhouette heavy art was a way to force myself to finish a comic, as I knew I didn’t have the time or energy to do a normal page.
So yeah. That’s what’s been up on my end. If you want to offer Clare hugs or well wishes, she reads the comments here (and posts too…)
As an aside – we had a two day marathon of RuPaul’s Drag Race earlier this week, and if you have Netflix I highly recomend it. Maybe you don’t want to go through two seasons in 48 hours, unless you’re laid out with an injury, but it’s a ton of fun and well work watching. I’m a big fan of Raja from Season 3. Season 4 isn’t on Netflix yet, but I’m sure we’ll watch it once it is.
Anyway, back next week with a new page. Big stuff happens!
