Oh, don’t fight, you’re BOTH pretty!
It’s just epilogue left now, which is.. terrifying. Three pages, eek! I’m sorry about the rate rate dropping to a crawl, it’s because I’m buffering up Widdershins so it’ll update 3 times a week all nice and neat. So far it’s got two month’s buffer, hoping to push that up more before it launches.. Been working on the book too, chapter 2 is a doozy to fix, see below.
Hey book preorders are still open! Production is going along swimmingly, I hope to have a cover to show you soon, but for now, here’s this week’s sample of the ten million art tweaks I’ll be doing-
These tweaks will NOT be online ever, so if you want a far prettier Darken, this is your only chance!
Not too bad, huh? Interested in a copy?
Here’s how it works- I need preorders so I can afford the print run in the first place- Comics are my actual job now, so oddly enough there isn’t a lot of spare income around- By preordering you’re helping this to happen! I can’t guarantee a completion date for it (it’s looking like January 2012), but I will be working flat-out to get this done and on your doorstep soon. Also, you’re getting it slightly cheaper by preordering, and it’ll be your only chance to get a sketched one, so it’s good for both of us! I’m hoping to have the second book out not long after the comic’s finished, too, so it’ll all be wrapped up neatly in two volumes.
Also, for a measley £3 extra, you can get your copy sketched and signed in, feel free to request a specific sketch if you like! Only pre-orders will get sketches!
So, who’s up for this? :)
MEPHISTOPHELES: What? You cannot be serious, child!
MEPHISTOPHELES: Your Lordship, you cannot see this happen on the whim of a brat that-
ASMODEUS: That brat is my only heir.
MEPHISTOPHELES: I- But-!
ASMODEUS: Yes, I do believe this is the most.. amusing path, at least. Will you accept, Gort? It does, of course, mean relinquishing the Regalia, and that strange little bond you have with the dragonling..
GORT: Yes! This is what I was born for! I will be the greatest devil that ever was!
Komiyan looks horrified at this, and hurriedly whispers in Gort's ear...
GORT: -Less great than yourself, of course.. Lord Asmodeus..
GORT: *shakes his fist up at Mephistopheles* But far better than you!
MEPHISTOPHELES: You wretched little-! Without me you'd be nothing!
MEPHISTOPHELES: How dare you! If you were not my Disciple in the first place you'd be dead!
GORT: Hah! More the fool you to give away your power to the Lord of Hellfire!
MEPHISTOPHELES: Will you stop calling yourself that! You're not the lord of anything!
GORT: I am the Lord of the Seventh! Gort the All-Powerful!
MEPHISTOPHELES: You got lucky, you sad little mortal! None of this was by your design!
GORT: Lucky?! The Lord of Hellfire needs no luck!
Asmodeus simply smiles as the argument rages...
ASMODEUS: Yes, this will be amusing indeed.
