Arc 9 - N-STAC - Page 11
March 23, 2012

Vote to view the next page early! More of an explanation for those who haven't quite got it yet. And if you still don't, Colbey will spend the next few pages lamenting the fact SHE hadn't caught on either.

On today's page, remember you know something that Colbey does NOT. For example, where Peter is (at least, by this time, I hope you do). And Scot never said anything about Peter's location, just that Colbey had to get to A SIT-E in APPLEYS. But those of you who've bought The Arc 5 Extension and the Proposal know there's more to it yet! Could I be more cryptic? Perhaps. ;)

Remember that What it Takes will be updating MWF for all of April, so the story will be moving pretty damn fast in the coming weeks. It'll be a killer! I leave it up to you to determine if I mean literally or figuratively for these characters.

Once again I'd like to thank you all for supporting this comic and me by not only reading, but also purchasing the story extras. More people keep buying them, which is awesome and so very encouraging. So thanks! I'll try to make of these story extras every few months or so, whenever we come to a part in the story where I had to chop out some backstory. And congrats to M. Dapkins for winning the raffle for the original piece of art! It'll be shipped soon.

This week, SpiderForest is highlighting the comic School Spirit!

School Spirit is a fun, light, slice-of-life comic about the adventures of a gaggle of Aussie school kids and the spirits of the cemetery next to their school. But that description in no way does the story justice. School Spirit is quickly becoming a new Calvin and Hobbes story for me. And I grew up on those two and their transmogrifiers, so that's saying something. So go check it out! WARNING: The puns are a killer.

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.

You can purchase it by clicking the icon in the right sidebar labeled The Proposal.
