I’m going to confess that most of that first panel is a scanned in screentone.

Then I’m going to confess that by the time I finished editing the darn thing to where it didn’t look like I’d just slapped a scanned screentone in to my comic and called it a day, I probably could have drawn that explosion from scratch. Therefore, I’m not going to admit to cheating, because I really DID do a lot of work on that panel. And you can’t see it, but Sarah’s grin behind that helmet mask is epic in its evilness.

Also, YAY Michael is back again! Whenever he’s not around I miss drawing his fabulous facial expressions.

I’d also like to give a HUGE thanks to all the people who have ordered books so far, or even just helped me out with spreading the word. The response has been more than I could imagine. The web-comic community and my readers are honestly the best people in the world. I’m truly blessed to be a part of something so special!

If you haven’t picked up your pre-order yet, you have until September 5th to do so! The book looks amazing, seriously. Full color cover, black and white 175 page interior with FIVE incredible chapters of comic (Chapters 1-4 and bonus Chapter 0!) and lots of bonus art. You can get it shipped anywhere in the world, and all of them will come signed. There’s also an option of getting an Artist’s Edition too if you want a sketch!

Oh, and starting soon I’m hoping to be using the blog more. I’ve gotten a lot of publishing questions so I’m probably going to do a whole series of posts on publishing a book. Stay tuned for that!
