…okay, so this is pretty late Sunday. Next comic should not be this late, but will probably be end of day monday. This one ended up taking longer to finish than expected. A panel like panel 5 takes me almost as long as the rest of the comic to draw, for a few reasons. Part of it being it just takes longer to draw, and part of it as it means I have to check and double check what various characters we don’t see a lot actually look like, some of them haven’t appeared before, some of them haven’t appeared in… quite a while, etc.

And of course, a “free” weekend turned out to be a fairly busy weekend. I always overestimate how much free time is in a day where I don’t have anything planned because I have a hundred things I haven’t been doing at any given time while busy with other stuff. Anyway, that’s life.

We will just keep marching on.

I actually wasn’t sure if this would be an interlude page or a chapter page, but decided to do as an interlude page because of flow-of-time reasons, these things can be a little arbitrary. Ryn was originally more an interlude character anyway. There are a lot of things I wanted to do during this interlude…… not sure I will be able to get to all of them, as I don’t usually like to run the interlude for more than 2-3 weeks.
