This is a comic I outlined over a year ago, with a series of 'chapters' each with 36 panels. I have yet to upload any of it, mainly because the last page of Chapter 1 panels still aren't even all drawn yet. But it's set in an alternate timeline from ours, one that's a bit more advanced than ours in certain ways and less so in others. Basically it addresses big existential-crisis themes relating to a potential systemic environmental and societal collapse... it's a conspiracy thriller with a voice that's more serious than my other comics and a little more interesting in its worldbuilding and character design and aesthetics in general.

Just got to say, sorry about how long it's taken to do this. I'm still treading water in some ways, trying to keep this web network afloat. Right now [March 2018] I am busy filing taxes... buying and preparing SSL certificates for all my websites so Google Chrome won't flag them as dangerous due to their new SSL-required policy rolling out in April... attempting to sell the stock footage DVD that I just launched after a lot of work making it, etc. Stuff always seems to get in the way of actual progress on comics and that's a shame but it's unavoidable usually.

I'm using some [limited] ad slots again from Project Wonderful. Given the increasing quality and quantity of web traffic lately here, might actually be worth doing now. Below this message is a promotion from another website owner, unrelated to my own web network. I'm not responsible for anything on their sites, nor do I personally filter the ads that rotate through the slot, so good, bad, amazing, dumb, hilarious, crazy, questionable or otherwise, so don't credit/blame me for whatever link appears down there. I don't control other peoples' websites. Okay?
