Needed to put a transition page in here, but didn't want to short you guys a "full" update. Guess that buffer of mine is back at zero...

Thank you... since I'm not packing crazy horsepower on my "renders" that means I have to knock everything else out of the park.

Well paced. Great ending to an action packed chapter.

You ARE updating tomorrow, as usual, right?!

I think operating at a zero buffer would give me too much stress. I try to stay one chapter ahead, but I can understand that that might not be practical for everyone.

Congrats on getting through chapter 1!

I would melt into a puddle of second-guessing, dialogue re-writes, and boredom if I had a significant buffer. I need the sheer terror of having to come up with something due in 24-72 hours as motivation.

My personal advantage over most of y'all is I live a very very boring life.

Gotta live vicariously somehow!

Now make like Stever and all the other cool kids and get your vehicle moving, Professor!

Key is in the ignition, mirrors are adjusted, atomic batteries are to power, turbines are to speed... and the tank is full.

Very nice transition. Your visuals are as stunning as your words.

hehehe...I'm being serious here. The visual line that runs diagonally through the splash page here is nice, simple, and tells a story very effectively.

To be blunt, I see lots of artistic types talking about letting the pictures do the talking, and most of them don't understand the first thing about proper panel composition.

Did someone not know the first thing about the story that preceeded this page, there are enough visual cues on the page to show that someone has just escaped the scene of chaos and destruction. I also love the crescent moon hanging in the daylight sky, adding subtext to the scene.

Your strips tend to be wordy, and I like that. You put a lot of stock in dialogue, which is one of the reasons I am reading. You also know when to shut up and let a page like this do the heavy lifting.

Thank you.

Too often answer praise with snark rather than just accepting it.

Some of those elements are conscious, some of them are instinctual. I'm glad they worked this time.
