Glad you enjoyed it!
that was great!
Thanks for staying tuned! Where can I see your comic?
I'm with you on the setting thing. I've had a person surprised my comic wasn't set in the US, that's why I'm mentioning it. It's something we assume by default (and we shouldn't). Yay for more variety!

Good to hear you'll be back! I'm following you on Comic Rocket so I'll definitely keep reading when you continue :) Cheers!
Thank you for the kind words! I didn't want it to be based in the US, since both me and the art team are not. I do try to give a broader view of the rest of the world the comic is happening in.

And yes, we've taken a bit of a hiatus, longer than we intended, but we will be back soon. Please stand by, and the story will continue, we're gearing up!

Thanks again!
