Redraw of chapter 1 is happening

Recently, I've managed to streamline my comic-making process enough that I'm comfortable with trying to do some extra work besides the main updates. I opted to make a long-overdue rehaul of the first chapter with that surplus vigor.

I didn't exactly know what I was doing back then and wasn't a particularly skilled artist either (not that I'm very skilled now... but certainly better, at least).

So the first pages are sort of a mess both in terms of the quality of art and the quality of pacing. And it's the first thing newcomers will check out if they'll decide to see more than just the latest page. But also, I might try to put the comic to print (at least, domestically first, sorry guys) and this also requires retouching of the first chapter for much the same reasons.

I do not know yet how exactly the new version will be released. I will certainly replace the first chapter entirely when the remake is done, but that won't happen for at least the next half a year, so what can I do?

Options are to either release it a page at a time concurrently to the regular updates as an extra chapter, or release it in bulk 10 pages at a time as soon as I'm done with them (and move everything later), or hold out until it's done entirely. What would you prefer?

Meanwhile, here's a few sneak peeks at the renewed art. The new chapter grew 5 additional pages, due to aforementioned pacing issues, and the panel layout will become more dense and closer to the modern LTC page density.

New background model for the very first actual panel of the comic WIP of the new page 8

I made this blog post not only to share the news, but also to remove that "hiatus announcement" latest blog link from the comic ^^"

I apologize for the lack of updates during the hiatus. But the new chapter is finally here!

End of the chapter 5, and a short hiatus

Here we are at the end of the fifth chapter. It is currently the longest chapter of the comic, one and a half times longer than the previous record holder. Whew! If the next chapter is the same length, it will probably be the last. At the very least, the penultimate.

I almost succeeded in my goal of publishing the comic without interruption for a full year, but alas, not this time.

I'm forced to take some time off to prepare material for the next chapter - as well as for the finale of the first volume already. Well, to be honest, also to get a bit of a break from work. The comic will be back for publication in roughly a month, so stay tuned! ^^
