Uh oh.


I don't talk much about my football fandom on this here webpage, but as you may have heard, my beloved Seattle Seahawks are in Arizona for a particular sportsball competition this weekend. Please, if you're so inclined, root for them a bit this weekend, won't you?


Emerald City Comicon is coming and it's coming fast! If you're going to be in Seattle for the big show, you might just see me with these prints in tow:


Aaaawww, yeah. We're gonna have these, and AngryRob is gonna be there, and Himitsu Notebook is gonna be there, and it's going to be awesome.

More news will be coming as I get it!


See you on Monday, everyone!

They should define "rogue" (as best they can with a mass text message), because right now he's just looking for a family member solo....unless, of course, he is unwittingly going against his agency's interests and stumbling on something deeper...

Actually, from what I remember he didn't tell them anything. So they have no idea what's going on.

Sky makes a good point!

There's other reasons that the Agency wouldn't want Nick running off entirely on his own that will be dealt with some in the rest of the chapter! o.ob

Not sure why Nick wouldnt just let the agency chip in?

Having them backing him up would sure as hell spike the odds in getting the girl back unharmed greatly.

Isnt that the most important thing right now, Nick? Comon man, you are already dipping your toes into the divining pool, just bite the bullet and jump in with both feet already!

And yeah, working securiy for the Scottsdale fanfest this year, crowds are already getting crazy. Plus the US Open is starting up....gonna be a busy couple week's round here!

Nick's reasons for not involving the Agency of the Unnatural is leading to one of the bigger moments in Long Way Down. Though expect Nick to make some worse decisions before he makes better...

Woof, that's gonna be rough, Dragin! Stay strong out there in the AZ!

Not only did Dusk miss the timing, she didn't correctly identify the attacker. :(

And the extra content does make up for the reduced frequency, not to mention giving you more time to develop the nuances in the artwork--it's a fair trade. :)

That's the trouble with divination, soothsaying, fortune telling, and scrying ... they're the most inexact of sciences. Poor Dusk.

Glad the new schedule is working for you, Delta! I'm hoping I can return to a twice-weekly sooner rather than later!

Just don't push it, dude, give yourself a chance. Remember, you're your own worst critic. :)
