Whew! That took a while!
First up, there was a delay due to paying work and script wrangling. Originally my plan was just to have Toby tell us all what happened here. But it felt really flat and forced and just didn’t work. I knew the next comic after Toby’s flashback would be the mysterious knock at the door we see here, and I decided mysterious knocking people wouldn’t wait for the story to be over, and it was much more fun to interrupt things.
Then there was a delay last week as I injured my left wrist somehow. I’m right handed, but my left hand sits on the keyboard hitting various shortcut keys while I make a comic.
And THEN I got food poisoning, which pretty well shut things down for the rest of the week.
After all of that, I helped put on the largest Beggar’s Carnivale ever, as I played music and my friends performed for over 700 people in a giant spectacle of awesomeness. Then I DJed a second show on Sunday.
But NOW, now I’ve finished the comic, and shared it with you all!
New page should be up early next week, God willing and the creek don’t rise.
EDIT: I posted a few wordless panel close ups to Tumblr. You guys might enjoy them.
