This issue is extra special because it's a Sponsored Issue! Thank you!
Hey guys. As you can see the page is still in the sketch phase. I went over things in a ramble on Tumblr, but what it basically comes down to is... the impression I've received over the years is that you all are more invested in the story than my art. Which is great, it means I'm doing a good job as a writer. With that in mind, I'm dropping the pages down to sketch only.
Drawing the pages is very painful for me lately due to the nerve issues in my arm and, because of the slower speed I'm stuck working at now, increasingly time consuming. I have a great deal of story yet to tell and would like to be able to move forward with sharing that story with you all while limiting the strain on my arm.
I can do a clean sketch like this in a day without causing any major pain. This does mean that we can, in the future, increase the update schedule. FINALLY! I would like to make a small buffer first before adding more pages a week. That way if something does go wrong in the future, I'll have a bit of breathing room.
I'll let you know next week when we'll be able to begin increasing the update schedule. I'm thinking the beginning of March at the latest, most likely sooner. Matt and I were discussing what's going to happen to Fredrick last night and I can't wait to share it with you all! *evil laugh*
Thank you for understanding and sticking with the gang and me through all this! It means a lot to me! Until next week, take care!
And yes, I did change Mercy's hair. She's a shapeshifter. Occasionally she has a new hairstyle. It happens.

Our spam filter has been a little over zealous lately. If you leave a comment and it doesn't show up right away, please don't panic. Matt and I will be popping our heads into the admin area whenever possible to okay comments falsely marked as spam. Sorry for any inconvenience.
If you see a mistype, please drop me an email. I'm more likely to see your message and correct the mistake faster that way.
