Whoops. Well, I’m a big dummy, set this to post at the wrong time. Oh well, enjoy the early comic!
A quasi montage page for you guys to wrap up a few items, including a little cheat by me to explain why the highway outside a restaurant at dinner time was curiously devoid of cars. (even though there should have been some on the first few pages of the fight. :P ) Oh, and in that panel, Sydney’s just doing one of her unnecessary truesight sweeps. That cop isn’t really an oni or anything. Also, I really like the idea that teleporters startling people. I don’t ever recall anyone jumping when Nightcrawler bamfed into a room. I imagine it’s happened a few times over the many years of comics, but not with enough consistency that I recall it being a thing.
Arguably this page would serve well as the final page in the book, but I have just a few more things to get to first. Nearly there though. It’s exciting! Of course, once book one is finished for realsies, I need to go back and make a bunch of corrections and set about getting the book put together for a kickstarter, which is utterly daunting since I already barely have any spare time. I think I may put out a call for a part time colorist, which I know was a milestone for the Patreon campaign, but it turns out finding someone good enough, fast enough, cheap enough and available enough is a tall order. I’ll make a separate post about that in the next few weeks I think.
I don’t have an update for the vote incentive quite yet cause I’m working on a Valentine’s Day Sex Drive piece concurrently. I’m trying something new with the coloring on it which may turn out nice but it’s taking longer than I’d like, but I’m hoping to have it done in time as well as the vote piece before the end of the month.
