If you have any questions or comments on the schedule change, feel free to throw them our way. And if you're thinking about dropping the comic over this or whatever, we understand, but we ask that you please give it a chance - we're both very happy with how the next chapters are coming out so far and the new format and schedule have really kind of breathed a new life into the production of these for us so far. We hope to get back to the standard schedule eventually, but for the time being, we're in need of a little bit of a rest period.

As for the page itself... Toldja Power would be back sooner than you probably thought. While we're at it, we get some follow-up from this bit back in chapter five -


Funny thing about that, I feel guilty that it's taken this long to follow up on it, but at the same time this is actually earlier than it was intended to come up; initially that was going to set up BP's... it was like eleventh at the time, but now after some shuffling around it's the fourteenth chapter. It worked out nicely for what's going to be happening in the next chapter though, so it got brought up early and Power's streak of appearing in every chapter continues for now.

On the subject of BP, that guy in the last panel debuted there in its fifth chapter. If you've looked at the cast page you've already seen he goes by Bullet Time (if you don't read BP, he wasn't named in it when he showed up there), but we'll be getting a more proper introduction to him next time. I don't really consider him part of either comic's cast, but we'll get to that down the line.

Unrelated to all of this talk of things coming together, I like the way McShay (I originally wrote that as McCay; I assume if he's ever doing something in Blues while she's doing something in WaR this is going to get confusing) is looking in the third panel there. She basically looks completely unimpressed by what O'Hara's doing. We'll be seeing a taste of just what she can do in the next chapter.

Yeah, we need you folks to bear with us on the schedule thing- it's just been overwhelming for us of late. When I finally finished this chapter, I could just feel this enormous weight lifting off my shoulders. The six-comic-a-week thing was simply killing me.

Ughhh... Scatterbrained but got a lot of other stuff to talk about. Bullet Time's design was totally done by Abe- my original look planned for him had him look a lot scrawnier and snitchier, but really prefer this one. Comes off more as like an escaped convict and still manages to look like a really back-alley scumbag, but a much tougher one. Love the logo, too.

Felt good to see Power again, in particular her office, just wish I'd conveyed she's a bit more beaten up. That said, I really love her philosophy about getting big in the Atlanta underworld. There's something really badass about that logic when applied. ^^

I know the schedule change is kinda a drag, and we're sorry, but nothing much we can do. The last two months of my semester are gonna be grueling enough as is. Do try and bear with us, though. The next chapter is pretty awesome. ^^ Enjoy the filler!

I made it through the semi-hiatus and I can make it through this, so many things happening at once but did Alex actually miss Sarabeth saying White Noise and all Bullet Time going to do is make Alex mad at him and I'm guessing McShay is going to do something really bad to the man Power's talking to.

With White Noise, it's probably more that Alex would kind of rather not go into having talked to Sareena about her already for the moment. Alex brings that up when he actually meets her in the next chapter.

On another note, we definitely appreciate the support.
