More thanks to Fig for letting me use his pages as musical effects. I left it off the last one by accident. I'm going to go back and fix that eventually.

I'm really happy with the way this page came out. Next week should be a lot of fun for everyone but Nesariel... and maybe Sam. I'm so far behind I don't even have next week's thumbnail ready.

Just a heads up,
Skweeee of Canada Signups are still open!
We've got scenes 2 & 3 filled up now but there are still three more scenes to go.

I got an extra piece of birthday fan art from Argylefox but I'm holding onto it for a few days.

What a delicious bowl of M&MS! (you shoulda told him they were peas :D)

Hahah, throwing them out like that...seems a waste?

The dance floor looks damn cool!

He no longer has need for them.


Thanks! It's time consuming, but not nearly as bad as if I had to do it properly.

I am so so so so so cribbing your dance floor FX...

"Chuck" is such a pusher...

He would use the term "artist."


“In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it.”

This kind of thing scares me because it really goes on in real life, people taking drugs from absolute strangers just so they can be cool and fit in. I am sure this practice has taken many a person's life.

I'm sure it has too my friend. The horrors explored in this story are sampled from both reality and mythology.

"Embrace the Dragon".. I always liked that.

"Step into the Tempest" is the next level ..? ;)

I- is that a pre-existing thing?

The tempest is Chuck's third move.

He's allowed four.

"Ride the dragon" as well as "Embrace the dragon", as a saying about unpleasant stuff which stir up emotions, especially fear, and to accept or even appreciate these things as part of life. I'm not sure where it originally came from, but I feel it will fit your comic nicely.

And, it sounds cool.

Interesting. Fairly fitting, considering the context.

Thanks! It was sorta an afterthought that I ended up running with.

Oh! Very clever use of Figs work to imply constant background music. This approach could be used for all kinds of different noises and ambient sounds. I must contemplate this cleverness!

Thanks! I'm really happy with the way it worked out.

Very early in the writing of this project I had this idea of using the space between panels for... something. I didn't know what exactly at the time.

I've got a few more tricks up my sleeve on that front for when the story really starts rolling along.
