Don’t forget to throw me a vote over on TopWebComics.com! Voting will get you a preview of tomorrow’s page, which is also the last page for this chapter. Then, of course, I’m going to take a short two-week break to share some new fan-stuff with you guys and Chapter 12 will start posting in April. And, of course, starting this weekend I’ll have the Chapter 12 Advance PDF available.
So I want to talk about Chapter 12 for a moment. I’m actually sort of nervous about it. Not just because this is the end of the first arc of the story and it’s going to start going in to the real meat of things, but also because (and those of you who watch me on Twitter have surely seen this by now) I actually somehow managed to sit down and color the whole thing. So this is the first time I’ve done a chapter in full color and I’m quite nervous about the reception that it’s going to have. After doing black and white for so long it’s a huge step, and one that I wasn’t sure I was ready to take. But looking at Chapter 12 in color now, I can’t imagine it reading well any other way. I just hope that it’s done well enough to get a good reception.
Because the whole thing is largely an experiment, too, I am going to go back to the “Donate whatever amount you wish” model for the PDF of this one. I’m hoping that color is something everyone’s wanted for a long time and it will encourage some people to chip in even a dollar to help out an independent creator and get to see the entire next chapter all at once, before it’s available on the site. :)
