20130929, 10:49 – The last page of September and the last page of the chapter with line art and dialogue. Also technically the last shot of the Daedalus crew physically in grid G. Transitional Voices Chapter Three (coming in 2014!) will see the crew actually in or at least very near civilization. This page goes to that and should – in two panels – cut down what would have been pages of exposition back when I was working on The Dualist, thus enabling TV.3 to be that much tighter with that much less in the way of setup.
TV.3’s gonna be a big chapter, just as dense or denser than TV.2 has been. I’m looking forward to it, though there’s a chance I might make some additions to Dead City Radio before that – it ultimately depends on which script gets finished first and what the DCR production requirements look like. The transition from Movable Type to WordPress will be happening after TV.2 posting wraps and before any new pages are created, and planning for that effort is currently a high priority. Higher than script, higher than asset prep. I’ll blog about it in the blog after this chapter is complete – maybe by then I’ll have a better idea of the timetable.
Tune in next week for an epic dose of space porn!
