This is the right page of the aforementioned two-page spread, which features every member of the Daedalus crew being excessively in character. Xand is handling hardware, West is flying the ship, Raven is on communications, Ornix is pushing things along and whatever Thad has to say is washed out in a roar of static.

Layout-wise I think the “bookend” panel on the right lines up nicely with Thad’s dialogue in panel five. Call it one last bit of foreshadowing.

Next week – The grand finale! It could go up Monday morning real early, or I might post it Sunday night. I’m not sure yet. I’m moving on the 24th, the day the next page should go live, and my computer rig is the last bit of equipment I’ll be packing up. However it goes down it could well be the first page of the comic to be announced from my laptop instead of my desktop… and I might post it Sunday so I can spend Monday almost entirely offline. I’ll have a better idea of when it’s going up after this page is live. While it’ll only be a couple of days either way, if you support ATC on Patreon you can see it right now.
