Magical Renegades

by Kattlanna
(Full title: Magical Renegades ~ Anathema to Commonsense)

In The State of Confusion, rival time travelers in rival factions cause a power struggle to escalate to the point of putting the fate of the space-time continuum at stake!

The Magical Renegades, whom are best described as rebels without a clue, must fight the League of Paine, and all while preventing another collapse of the space-time continuum! The Magical Renegades have a lot of catching up to do to challenge the League of Paine's power, since its leader stole one of the most powerful magical weapons of them all.

Follow the tale of our "heroes" who don't know the odds stacked against them, or just don't care! Sometimes, power isn't everything. Sometimes, a *ahem* "hero" must think outside of the box even if it means going against commonsense!

Magical Renegades is on hiatus now, which is why I missed an update last week. I ran out of a page buffer weeks ago, but was reluctant to go on hiatus because of it, so I was rushing to finish pages for several weeks. As much time as I spend on each page, rushing without a buffer led me to make a lot of mistakes on recent pages that I had to go back and correct!

This hiatus is planned to last for a few weeks, and I'll use it to build up a page buffer, and to be more careful that I don't overlook mistakes in a hurry again. I'll be starting a full-time job very soon too, so I'm needing to build up as much of a buffer as I can before then to make sure I can continue updating regularly. I may post the next page this weekend if I feel like I have enough of a buffer prepared.

I haven't posted on twitter lately because I've been too busy with working on the next pages, but I'll do what I can to keep readers updated. Sorry that not posting about something like this sooner is a bad habit of mine that I'm trying to break.
I saved the "Through the Fire and Flames" reference for this instead. That song inspired this picture! I didn't plan on including the words on the lower right side of the picture, but the picture seemed off without a description to give it some context. I planned on keeping it simple, but it became a lot more ambitious.

Sorry for the delay with this. I ran out of a page buffer for multiple reasons. I'm reluctant to take a hiatus, but if I take one, I plan on it to be for just a few weeks to build the buffer back up again. WIPs will be posted on my twitter page.

I made this milestone picture to show the triumph I've felt over the struggles and pitfalls that can come with rebooting, and the joy of being able to move forward again and make it this far.

Have you rebooted a comic before and felt this way about rebooting?
Reached the page 100 mark, and near the end of chapter 4! Deciding on a title for this page was hard. I could've also gone with "A foe that wasn't mist" or "Through the Mist and the Fog, Princess carries on!"

The milestone page will be next, some time before next week's update, and I wanted to make sure it was polished before posting. Thank you everyone who's read this far!
They haven't been able to catch a break. It's been one fight after another! Almost there to page 100, and I'll have a milestone picture for it too!

There were multiple bloopers on the first panel that I didn't notice until after it was uploaded, but have been corrected now!
I had been too busy to make a twitter post, but now that it's the weekend, I have some time freed up. Along with the next pages, I'm also working on an extra side strip, and a 100th page special! Magical Renegades has already reached 100 pages if the prologue, title pages and extra strips are counted, but it doesn't feel like I truly reached that 100 page milestone yet until I get to page 100.
Katt had to focus all of the power she could gather from the crystal she was holding, never being certain if this strategy would work. This is closely based off of a page from the previous rewrite. I kept the "Sparks fly, robots are gonna die" line. It made me feel nostalgic for Battlebots the first time around and now I'm feeling nostalgic again!

After a lot of procrastinating, being busy with just the comic pages, and having started over on the banner twice, I launched a twitter page! I don't have any posts yet, but plan to post updates, WIPs, and any other comic-related things that come to mind!

Sorry I was late publishing this. I experienced a lot of ongoing stress over the past few weeks. It wasn't bad enough to make me miss an update, but the worst of it was a few days ago, and it made me physically sick. I had to spend a couple of days just recovering from it. I'm back now, and plan to publish the next page on the weekend as scheduled.
And speaking too soon again? Wielding an experimental magical weapon sounds awesome until this happens at the worst time!
Explaining things in the middle of a fight can be difficult…
Don't you hate when that happens? You're ready to leave when the enemies you thought you defeated attack again?
...Or knocked them out of the sky? As Katt and Aurora learned: Transformation is a free action, and a flashy enough sequence can subdue foes!
Initiation is complete, and the codename for Katt's mage alter-ego is revealed! Aurora is Renegade Midnight, and this hasn't been revealed in the comic itself yet, but Susie Mae is Renegade Liberty (as liberty is a shade of blue). I was originally going to go with Renegade Scarlet for Katt, but then ended up being a toss-up between Scarlet, Crimson, Carmine (would've also made a joke about the odds being stacked against her even more, as I found out that carmine is the shade of red worn by the Redshirts), and Red Alert. I decided that Red Alert would be the most fitting.
The transformation scene finishes on the next page, and the codename of her alter-ego will be revealed!
I had another tough week, and it's been feeling easier to upload pages on the weekend. I haven't decided if this will be a permanent change, or to back to updating on Wednesdays once my life and workload return to normal. This was a fun page for me to draw. This page and the one before it were closely based off of some of the final pages I made for the previous rewrite before scrapping it.
First Magical Renegades update of the year, and what a way to start it! Sorry for the late update. I had a rough week, but I've finished page 86 already and can get it posted on time. I hope everyone's New Years Day went well!
This will probably be the last update for the year, and what a year it has been. Nearly everyone I know said it was great or terrible, with little in between. One of the upsides in my life this year was getting the ability to update this comic regularly, finally having more time and energy for it. Tough work schedules that left me exhausted made it difficult last year, and hardships in my life making it difficult the year before. I still dealt with some challenges in my personal life, but I didn't have to go on a hiatus because of them again.
I was so busy and exhausted from work last week that the last page was late, but I still was able to ensure that I'd get today's page up on time. The initiation scene is about the farthest the previous version of the comic went before I rebooted it a few years ago. I felt sad about that decision, but I always want to keep moving forward.

A sneak preview of what's to happen! Katt and Aurora find themselves up against the robots that were tracking down Aurora, and a new, but familiar opponent will also appear!
Alternate title: Transformation is a free action after all?!

This is the end of chapter 3! As I was vectoring this page, I was using normal colors for panels 2 and 3, but wanted to try out more of the dramatic use of contrasting colors in dramatic scenes. Watching more JoJo inspired those color choices.
Sorry this was late, because I was feeling very sick and then an urgent situation arose in my life that I needed to tend to. 2 more pages to go for this chapter!
