Arc 10 - Underhanded - Page 1
April 27, 2012

Vote to see the next page early! Sorry about that sketch page that went up earlier, I uploaded the wrong version into the buffer, argh. Just refresh the site to see the real thing.

This page goes out to Denise "Darwin" Randall, who was confused for the longest time that Scot was not indeed a long-running cameo of her character, Cabal, from The Only Half Saga. And she was confused with good reason! I based Scot's design on Harry Dresden (from Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files), which is extremely similar in some regards to my favorite dhampir. So, in good-natured fun, here's both an apology and a cameo of Cabal, teaching Scot how to kill vampires. Because heck, Marlin's gang IS a bunch of LARPers.

And in other news, Colbs is justifiably angry she doesn't get a gun, considering what everyone else will be packing.

Don't forget! The SpiderForest comic of the week is Twilight Lady! And it has nothing to do with a fangirl of that horrid Twilight series! :D

Twilight Lady is the story of an ancient, vengeful spirit known (so far) as only "the Lady." Spirits who seek revenge, justice, or simply release all come to her for help, but there's just one problem--the Lady is STUCK in someone else's body, and only has control when poor Jen is asleep. Still, she must find a way to help a young boy get justice for his murder. Check it out! I'm only describing the most recent story, there is WAY more in the archives.

Regarding extra pages next month, I didn't really expect to real the goal THIS early, but there are a few readers out there who really freakin' rock. MWF updates all of May, guaranteed!! More if you guys want them. I'm fine with going UP TO 5x a week. Use the Chip-in below (through paypal) to put in the Extra Page Pot!

How it works: Every $20 "unlocks" an update in May. We'll start with Monday updates, and move to open days if the meter hits more than $80. Updates for April of course continue M/W/F until the end of the month regardless of any amount raised, since The Proposal funds covered the entire month.

A few people are using the donation BUTTON in the right sidebar, I'm unsure if that's because they just want to GIVE and not ask for extra pages (whoo, awesome!) or because they have Flash/java disabled and can't see the chip-in in their browser. If it's the latter, and you wanted those funds to go toward extra pages next month, PLEASE! Let me know.

Lastly, yesterday marked 8 years of making my other comic, The War of Winds. Wow.
