Last page of chapter 21! First page of chapter 13! Double posted because it’s in both of them!

If you were supporting me on Patreon you could see a high-res copy of the last panel of this page! Or me waffling on about how me getting obsessive about the backgrounds lately ties into the overarching themes of the comic!

Also I should mention that Henry is a cameo of Savage Henry, created by the ever-awesome and influential (on me at least) Matt Howarth! I think that is all! Also I am running out of exclamation points!

But not out of weed.

Oh wait! I found some more exclamation points! The name of Rita and Carol’s boss is glitched out because it’s going to be replaced with a Kickstarter 3 backer! Who will have a panel or three of appearing on-stage, as well!

<> Four choices.

This is probably the only time you will ever see me drawing perfectly symmetrical figures. Symmetry is deadening, and I like everything to be lively. But nobody’s inhabiting these four chassis right now; they should look just as alive as your clothes hanging in the closet. Their subsentient systems are keeping them standing and balanced, but there’s no mindcore there to turn them into a person.

<> Need-To-Know Basis

Rita’s boss is pixellated out because you’re just not cleared for that.

Or maybe they’re pixellated out because they’re a YCH who’s going to be a Kickstarter reward. Possibly at a stupidly high level because I really kinda like having them be a mystery, although I may want to rework them a little bit to make it obvious they’re definitely not Barrett beneath all the pixelation.


Anyway. There’s still some stuff left in this chapter. Guess I’d better get to drawing it.

<> Missed Connections

This is the end of chapter 13.

This page took a hell of a long time. Mostly because I’ve been busy doing stuff for Rainfurrest. I’m still not quite done with the conbook cover for that.

Also of course there’s Kickstarter fulfillment starting to happen. I probably need to get some friends together for a shipping party soon…

If you're enjoying this comic, please consider buying the book or buying a PDF, supporting me on Patreon, or telling your friends and/or favorite tastemakers about it. Thanks!
