Well, that's the last time I'll ever attempt to draw a story featuring a combination of cars, 8-legged horses, and complicated Norse designs. Hope y'all enjoyed it, because it was tough to make. The backup story is already completed, so updates should return to normal for the time being. Thank you for your patience.

Sorry pages have been so very slow lately. Turns out drawing a story about cars AND 8-legged horses is hard. Who knew?

Anyway, I forgot to plug an episode of my podcast. This one was about the Shaver Mystery - a bizarre conspiracy theory published as scifi that unfortunately wound up being incredibly influential: http://neversleepsnetwork.com/podcast/s3e79-chapter-seventy-nine-giants-in-the-earth/

We also released one about Superfolks, a novel that did the superhero deconstruction thing a decade before more famous examples like Watchmen and Squadron Supreme: http://neversleepsnetwork.com/podcast/s3e80-chapter-eighty-earths-mightiest-mortal/

A new episode of my podcast dropped! We discuss The War Eagles, a never-made film from King Kong creator Merian C. Cooper about eagle-riding Vikings fighting Nazi superweapons. We talk about the doomed project's background, pre-production, why it fell apart, and subsequent attempts to adapt it over the years. Check it out: http://neversleepsnetwork.com/podcast/s3e78-chapter-seventy-eight-the-wings-of-the-warrior/

A new episode of my podcast is up (or will be. Adam uploaded the wrong audio file, but I'm sure it'll be fixed very soon). This episode, we talk about an authorized prequel to the classic novel Treasure Island, with a wider discussion of pirates in history and popular culture.
