As a chronic slacker, you have no idea how good it feels to finally being posting pages in the 40s now.

thing. If I was a more productive person (re: chronic slacker) I would update multiple times per week but at this point in my life, I just don’t have time for that. I also had to balance the pacing of a webcomic with a print version. These sparsely panelled pages work better when you read the chapter as a whole. There’s also a lot of ~dramatic pauses~ at the end of each page to string the reader along when viewing in a webcomic format.

On a side note, I’ve included this week’s twitter ad because I thought it was funny. Between the font and the imagery I thought it looked like a nearly 00s ad for rehab (or some kind of Christian ad). The line about it being an ad for a webcomic and not a rehab facility reminds me of the kind of humour I used to use in the old Maritonia comics that were more just… bad random pop culture commentary. At one point Maritonia was going to be a gag-a-week type comic.
