Chapter 9 - Still Alive 2 - Page 19

January 9, 2012

Vote to see the next page a week early yet again! There are 2 more pages left in this chapter and then we get to Chapter 9 part III, starring another familiar face from way-back-when.

As for today's page, I keep hoping I've finally reached that sought-after artistic ability of showing, not telling, but I'm never really sure. Shadows, single touch equals death. Death did not happen. Freak out time. Bigtime freak out followed by running away. Something is very wrong. Or right? Perhaps evening the field. We'll see. And Tam is running away too, not running toward. The shadows in that panel aren't as good as I'd like. Too busy to fix.

Break is now officially over for me (whimper) and it's back to the grind! But, I now officially have 5 weeks of buffer for this comic and 3 weeks of buffer for What it Takes. And what that means is I REALLY REALLY want to just post all the pages now so everyone can see them and the story can progress faster. BUT I CAN'T. I won't have the time to work on comics at ALL for the next 2 weeks, and likely not at all for the next month. This is my first time in, uh, 7 years with a buffer, and I'm not ruining it! You can however continue to see previews at both the forum and my tumblr.

Hey, does anyone need a site designed or built? My buddy Trevor is looking for work. He's stellar with comicpress but can work with anything. Check out his site for examples and to contact him.

Today is the start of the Comic Creators for Freedom donation drive! If you haven't heard of that yet, it's a drive put on by webcomickers to collect proceeds to help victims of human trafficking--slavery. Colbey from What it Takes is participating again. Check out the news post here.

Thanks for reading, see you next week!
