Arc 12 - The Hardest Virtue - Page 23
February 22, 2013

Vote to see the sketch of the next page

Wherein Colbey catches up Bob and Primrose on events as well as readers in case they had not caught on. 4 more pages in this arc and then on to...extractions? Ambushes? The best laid plans?

Also, how is February almost over? WTF is going on here I do not remember allowing time to go this fast. OBEY ME UNIVERSE!

IMPORTANT! If you purchased The Longest Goodbye (or ANY of the stories listed the sidebar) and were NOT forwarded to the story, please contact me at warofwinds@gmail.com and I will email it to you immediately! If you don't push the big yellow button after check-out, you don't get sent to the story. If you purchased it previously and neglected to save it to your HD and want to read it again, I will also email you back ASAP. You bought it! It's yours <3 Previous news continues below.

Monday's news, if you missed it, with preview and description! The 3rd downloadable short story in the What it Takes universe is now available: The Longest Goodbye! And there's a raffle too (read below)!

Unlike the other two stories, this one is narrated by Scot because as the title suggests, it's his goodbye and good luck message to Colbey. You guys got to read the last page in the comic here, but there was quite a bit more. And after. Kind of. See sketch previews of the first 12 pages as well as the full first page here.

This story is 16 pages long, monotone like the comic, has 1-3 panels per page, and starts almost IMMEDIATELY after the events in the Arc 5 extension. You don't need the extension to gather what's going on, but I'd bet you'd enjoy the story more.

You can use the permanent button in the sidebar at right --> or you can click below to purchase. Press the giant yellow button after payment to be FORWARDED to the story. Payment will be through paypal, but you should be able to pay with any visa or mastercard if you don't have an account with them.

So far the feedback from the other stories has been 100% positive, so I hope you equally enjoy this one.

BUT WAIT! There's more!

Everyone who purchases ANY of the 3 available stories from today until April 1st will be entered in a raffle to receive a piece of What it Takes-related original art on 11x14 bristol, in ink, to be mailed to you wherever you may live. The content of the piece is up to you, so long as it's in the What it Takes universe and isn't horribly dirty. One ticket per story is how it will work. Drawing will be live on livestream/ustream and I will announce it beforehand on the site. I will be doing the traditional "pull the name out of a hat" type draw as I've found the random number generators online to be not so random. :/

Please comment below if you bought the story and enjoyed it! It kind of lets others know it's worth the fiver. <3

Also, if you are considering buying the other two stories and want to know more about them first, check here for the Arc 5 Extension, and here for the Proposal descriptions.
