Hey! It's literally Christmas Day! Probably the worst day of the year to post a comic update! But here I am because I've decided that I'm not doing hiatus weeks anymore, and also because I don't have time to draw a Christmas drawing! Hi!! If you're reading this on update day, bless you, good sir! And a very happy Christmas to you!
In case I don't say it enough, I really appreciate everyone who shows up every week to comment or just check in, and I really loved seeing the response to last week's page. I know that more action-oriented chapters like this can be a bit tough on weekly readers--they make for a breezy read once they're completed, but there's often less payoff on a page-to-page basis--so I'm glad last week was able to offer a bigger emotional payoff for y'all.
NOTE: While the comic itself is not going on hiatus, I will take a two-week break on tallying up the STREET TEAM COMPETITION results -- in part because I forgot to transfer the graphics to my travel laptop. However, please feel freel to continue making submissions, and I will count them all in the next tally on January 8th!
