As I’d muttered about previously, this one took a bit longer than most pages…. but it didn’t take as long as I’d thought it would have. Instead of being a responsible adult and getting a bunch of chores done on Tuesday, I slacked off and got them jammed in after my sister arrived and before we headed out (during which we got some very concrete details on some very irritating drama I’ll blather about later). I didn’t have the full details on Jen’s navy leave, and finally found out that she’d already spent part of it in San Diego – I had her for Wednesday and Thursday. She headed out this morning (instead of this weekend as I’d originally thought), which freed me up to finish this thing tonight, instead of either this weekend or Monday as I’d originally thought.

I’m shit broke (no lie), which means the only thing I can do this weekend is work on ATC and a few other things I’ve been brewing. Which means more pages faster – in theory, anyway. 3.1.38 is still rendering. Five panels are done, number six is chugging, and 7-10 still have to be set up. 7-10 are roughly the same physical size as six, so with any luck, 37 should be up this weekend and 38 by Tuesday or Wednesday.

The rest of the chapter will be easy street.
