Senior at Attic High and son of the world’s greatest living geneticist. He turned Cass and Flint into animals in an attempt to win Attic High’s genetics competition. He’s since owned up to the consequences and promised to help them change back.
No, the comic is not going back to a strip format. In an effort to cut down on the long, suspenseful waits between each page, I’m going to release smaller updates on a regular schedule, even if an entire page isn’t finished. In this case, I’ve got the top 1/3 of this page done, and will be spending the next week working on the bottom half.
The goal is to publish new content, whether it’s a whole page or a half or a third, every single Wednesday. Once an entire page’s worth of content is done, then the pieces will be assembled into a full page for the archives.
If you have thoughts, please let me know what you think about this new plan.
Also, Volume 2 of UTC is now available for digital download! (Click the link for all the info!)
Happy Thanksgiving to those in the U.S.!
Jen explained Walker’s electrical horn in the last chapter. I deliberately established it back then so I wouldn’t need to shove in a quick explanation during the big battle.
Lookit all these already-transformed characters we’ve never seen transform.
Just look. No backstories. They’re just appearing for flavor to add to the diversity of the looming fight sequence.
*sobs* What am I even making this comic for.
It took a few sketches before I found a falling posture that looked good and dangerous. I tried for a more realistic “slipped down” look with his feet leading, but it just looked like he was jumping. So I flipped his body all the way around, with the insinuation that Keris’ tail hung on for a bit while Demetrius’ upper body fell forward. I wanted it to look obvious he is not going to have a safe landing.
That’s an uninteresting tidbit, but that’s all I got for this page and I had to write something!
I didn’t intend to have a background in Panel 1 while I drew it. During the coloring stage, I saw how blank the backdrop looked compared to having the foreground pieces (the hints of the machine Ken’s group is building). I also realized that it isn’t super obvious that Ash is breaking through the upper level windows. So I threw some color in the BG and added Ash’s silhouette.
All series I’ve been looking for a way to showcase Demetrius’ “genetic warfare” devices. We’ve seen his biological weapons before, but not any of their delivery systems until now. Aaaaand…it’s basically a tee-shirt cannon.
