Heheh.... Yeah, not much to say here, just signing off from the filler and getting back to business as usual. Do hope everybody will enjoy the new chapter. Lots of great moments incoming.

Always hard to hype up new chapters before they drop since we love keeping things close to the vest, but just tune in. This one's pretty much a big swerve from the last one, with a pretty harsh, brutal tone. Don't think that's spoiling since the (frankly, quite badass) cover is pretty dark and ominous.

This one was going to be Venus Envy, but we were kind of pressed for time and it was hard to really find very many identifiable outfits in it. Plus we already used Alex and I feel like they are the most appropriate fit for that one. Daryl would've also worked for the trans connection I suppose but I can't think of anyone in it quite as happy and outgoing as he is so it'd have been a pretty tenuous connection.

I do feel like it's a comic that's influence does bare mentioning though. I'd say it was my first real exposure to trans issues and so I was, while not exactly remarkably so, pretty educated on matters relating to them well before it was quite as common a matter of discussion as it is now. I feel like Venus Envy played a significant part in trans issues being something of a pet cause for me for a long time now and it makes it pretty special to me, even in light of how I'm guessing it hasn't aged great and it does do some things that aren't really entirely with modern sensibilities, like that it does indulge in a lot of, "To be trans is to suffer," stuff that can come off pretty excessive since it's basically uniform across the cast. I still felt like it needed some acknowledgement here even if doing an actual filler devoted to it was kind of a struggle to nail down.

So yeah, as mentioned, next chapter is Claim My Kingdom and will be starting on Monday. We're really hoping everyone is going to enjoy what's to come; it's going to be on the shorter side but it's a very important chapter going forward.
