I just wanted to post a quick note to let you know that we are still here. I know I’ve missed two updates, and I promise that will be the exception and not the rule.
My excuses are pretty decent.
1) Our internet computer has been down for a week, and our only access was by phone.
2) We took a short trip to celebrate our 3oth wedding anniversary.
3) I accidentally deleted an almost finished page. It was my mistake, but what was gone was gone. I am in the process of re-creating it from scratch.
Well, that’s my news–next week we’ll be back with new episodes. As always, if you have any questions then email me at scottstory at yahoo dot com.

I’m really looking forward to penciling the next scene after this one, because that’s when I introduce the villain of this piece. (And I love me some juicy villains!)
I’m proud to comment on some other projects I’m involved in as well. “City of the Broken Gate” is up to about ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
There’s no update today.
While the reasons for my tardiness do not really matter, I will share them anyway. As of Saturday I had the next two episodes drawn, inked and flatted, and all I had to do today was letter and render them. Sounds easy enough. What followed was a day of real-life responsibilities that effectively kept me away from the computer and any creative pursuit. None of these responsibilities were bad, they were just stuff that I had to take care in pursuit of living a sane life. In fact, I got to spend most of the day with Benita–we were working, but at least it was together.
So this brings up an interesting point. Rather than rush through the episode and put something out just to ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
