Vote to view the next page early! I'm out of town, so the vote incentives are automated and update midnight PST.

Only SEVEN more purchases of The Proposal or the Arc 5 PDF get everyone M/W/F updates for all of April! All purchases enter you in a raffle for a piece of original art. Details below.

So the internet really sucks where I am, but the beach really rocks. I will keep this short as it took 10 minutes to load this damn page.

For those scientists out there who are also youtube fiends..."BLOT BLOT WESTERN BABY FIGURE ONE WILL BE AMAZING." That song will be stuck in your head all day now, you're welcome.

I am curious as to what people think about the ethics of what Peter is doing here. Do you think he is an arrogant jacktard for dosing people with experimental medicine without their knowledge, or perhaps he is showing an initiative that he simply knew would save lives. Somewhere in-between? Not sure even myself.

If you missed it, I found out a bit belatedly that both The War of Winds AND What it Takes were featured as "best webcomics ever (this week)" on Comics Alliance. Wow! Thanks! I am so happy people are enjoying this story!

Ok, back to goofing off, hope I remember to update Friday's news post! Thanks for reading!

The Proposal

There is a new BONUS COMIC STORY available for $5 purchase. It is 13 pages long, illustrated. If you go back a few updates, you can see a preview of it with more details on specifics.

Up front, I want to say that anything in these bonus comics is exactly that--a bonus! An illustrated extra! Not necessary to continue reading the story. What these stories ARE is a fleshed out, close up of events that have been mentioned in passing and will never really be part of the main story. The Arc 5 extension explains a lot more of why Scot tracked down Colbey, and what was going on in the background of Driftwood. The Proposal is the story of how Peter proposed to Colbey. And it's nothing nearly as gushy as it sounds (it's rather tragic actually...). Each of them is illustrated! They're regular size comic pages with 1-4 illustrations per page, with a bit more narration.

Selling these little background stories allows me--a student--to continue to put the effort into making sure this comic updates to schedule...or even more than that. And I want everyone here to be aware of how much it MEANS to me that you guys are willing to support this story. This story is almost half way over now, and we're just getting to the good part! I'm so happy it's enjoyable enough that readers are willing to support me.

And in the case of The Proposal, all of this support is going straight into my SPRING BREAK FUND. Because I'm going to the beach, dammit, and I'm gonna have fun and not do work, but it's so faaaar away and I'm driving and I have to eat and help out with other costs.

Since this is getting rather long-winded, just once again let me say a big THANK YOU to everyone so far. When I first drafted this story I was kinda worried it wouldn't be received well, but the feedback I've gotten has been overwhelmingly positive. All purchases enter you in a raffle for another drawing too!
