Ah, finally, a long chapter put away with a joke.
Of course, this weekend is a bad time to be writing a story about the humor that can be found in mass murder. I can defend it; there are a lot of subjects that you must laugh at to avoid crying. But I’ll ask that people wait until the first book is done before making any moral judgements about the story. Tell me then whether or not you think its heart is in the right place.
Those of you who have been reading for a while will remember that I used to take a week off between chapters. I don’t waste that time; I use it to create advertisements and advance the buffer. I haven’t run any ads in several months, and I want to create a flyer to hand out at Worldcon in Chicago this year.
So let’s make this official: There will be no comic page on Monday, 7/30/12. The comic will return with chapter 6 on Monday, 8/6/12. However, I might put something up next monday just to keep you all entertained. And please, speak up to let me know whether or not you mind these twice-a-year breaks.
So stay tuned. Chapter 6 is when a lot of answers drop, and I think they’ll blow your mind.
Jacob: (sigh) Probably.
