Looks like we should be back to midnight releases now that Daylight Savings has come again. Admittedly though, sort of like the hour before set-up, so I think at least for the moment I'll keep at it.

Being an almost dialogue-free page I don't really have much to say about this one, but I am happy with it. This fight scene it turns out isn't as long as I thought it was in writing it, but we still have a few weeks to go on it so keep an eye out. About a solid month left in the chapter.

Don't forget that after the chapter concludes, WaR and BP will be having a bit of non-story content for a little while. I hesitate to call it filler, though, as we're still producing it ourselves, and WaR's half of that will be having a short, canon storyline.

In other news, WaR, BP, and Blues now have a Twitter feed. Feel free to follow us or whatever -

You'll notice that from this page on, the comic starts to use much thinner lines on the characters. I always drew all my art with fairly thick lines because- to be honest- it hid a lot of flaws I had when I was first experimenting with Manga Studio. I only used thinner lines when something was in the background and needed finer detail to come out.

On this page, I mistakenly used a thin line tool for the first two panels and liked how it looked. It did seem more adult and fit the comic a little better. Martin said he liked the look as well, and so I've been sticking with it ever since.

It takes some getting used to- it's easier for me to forget details with the lines this thin, but I prefer the look this way. I still use thicker lines for Blues since that gives the comic a more cartoony feel that's much better suited there than in WaR.
