Page 245 is almost finished! It’s the final establishing shot of Chapter 11, which is why it’s been melting my brain for two weeks. It just needs some colors and it will be online at some point on Saturday.
I completely failed to post this yesterday. D: Today’s update will be delayed because I haven’t made enough progress for even a small update. I’ll be working on it over the weekend and expect to deliver the final piece of Page 245 on Monday. Friday updates beyond that are still on-schedule. This is just a really tough part.
*Monday update: Big establishing shots are killing me. I can’t say when this update will happen but it will happen this week.
UTC will be on break until March 22. This is for a few reasons. First and foremost, now that the major scene of this chapter is finished, I’d like to take some time to review the script for the final 6 pages of Chapter 11. There is a robust epilogue planned, some of which I wrote as far back as three years ago. (The final page has been almost totally unchanged since then; I quite like it!)
But there are a few sticking points that have cropped up as I’ve finished the climax. I won’t get into the nitty-gritty right now, but I have some concerns about the future of the comic that, depending on the solutions I decide to go with, will directly affect things in the epilogue. So I need to make those decisions BEFORE making the next few pages.
Add to that the coincidental timing of an out-of-town vacation, and that’s why I’m putting a pause on the comic. There is just too much riding on this to make a hasty decision. I’m hoping the time away will provide some fresh insight, also.
So, keep the candle burning, my faithful readers! See you in two weeks!
It took me longer than I expected to finish the rest of page 244. I’ve pushed the release back to tomorrow, March 2.
This is going to be the last update for a few weeks. I’ll post more details when the page is live.
I’ve had slight schedule changes recently and I’m finding it’s harder to get pages done early in the week. I’ve decided to shift updates to Fridays. Early Access contributors on Patreon will receive the updates on Thursdays between 12am and 4am (U.S. Eastern).
So the bottom half of Page 243 will arrive here this Friday, Feb. 15.
