We're technically a day late with this (as mentioned in the comments last time) but...

Honestly the funny thing is that the 11th is kind of arguably more the anniversary anyway? Originally when we were updating the comic we were kind of doing so at a generic, "Sometime in the evening beforehand," point as opposed to the 11 PM EST point we use now, and since it was fairly early I've always counted it as the 10th, but going by the actual update schedule today is more accurate.

Either way, yeah, the overall idea of this one - Christmas visuals and a tattered Patriot Initiative flag - was pretty much always the plan, but throwing in Xandy and Melissa was a last-minute touch, as was one other thing. All stuff we're planning to get to at some point in the next year - in particular we will definitely be getting to the blowoff of the Patriot Initiative storyline. Between the BP merger and just other things taking precedent it's run longer than I ever intended it to so yeah, we will undoubtedly be getting to the blowoff this year.

Thanks everyone for reading and we'll be kicking off the tenth year when the story resumes on Monday!

Heh... Wow, Nine years.... Damn, that just feels awesome to haer, doesn't it? ^^

This was a bit of awkward timing on my comments; in the middle of an art stream but wanna discuss things on this pretty quick. My favorite details are easily the little bits in this page. The Christmas lights and the snow in the street, both of those are really what make this pop.

As Martin said, we're going to be getting to the payout for the Patriot Initiative and also finally be incorporating Xandy and Melissa into the narrative. ... Heh. For that matter, in a couple of chapters Lenore will be involved with Blues again. Hell, can see a way for her to show up in the VERY next chapter, come to think of it.

Christmas will be playing into the next chapters too. ^^ The seasons seem to be progressing normally, we had Halloween earlier, the indications after are fairly Thanksgiving-ish in terms of seasons, so the holidays are a natural next step. ^^
