We're back to twice a week! We'll be updating on Mondays and Thursdays again, so look out for a new page next Monday.

Also a reminder that this is a smackjeeves mirror, you can get pages earlier through this site- http://maidenmachine.com/
I'm so, so sorry for the posting delay! I forgot to upgrade my account to smackjeeves so I went ahead and posted the rest of the chapter out. But I need a break!

Maiden of the Machine will return July 14th! In the meantime, expect guest art and chapter cover art for Chapters 3 and 4. I'll be taking this hiatus to recover from a long-running freelance job and to also work on pages for chapter 4, as well as convention merchandise. Thanks for reading so far and I'll see you soon!
We're not late! We're fashionably tardy.

I met some of you guys at VanCaf!! Thank you so much for saying hello, that really meant a lot to me! I was so wiped out from driving but you guys really made my weekend. If I go back to VanCaf next year, this time I'm flying. None of that driving nonsense. Also, chapter is almost done! Just a few more pages, then we'll be taking another hiatus so I can work on Chapter 4 in bulk and get a nice buffer going. I should have wrapped my current project by then. Thanks guys!
Oh my God! This is a repost because I'm at VanCAF this weekend! http://www.vancaf.com/

Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is a completely FREE TO ENTER comics show that's this Saturday and Sunday in Vancouver BC! It'll be my first time in Canada and I'll be there with books, so come say hi! I'm going to be at table M5 in Hall 2.

I'm at Emerald City Comic Con! Today!

If you're at Emerald City Comic Con this weekend, then I'm here too! I'm parked at table S-01 at the tip-top of the Artist Alley! Come and say hi, I've got print copies of issues 1 and 2 for sale. Come and ask me about things!

If you're not at the show, I hope you enjoy seeing these losers again. And if you're reading this from the show, HI! Thanks for checking out the comic. You guys are the best!

HIATUS GUEST ART ROUNDUP CONTINUESSSSSSSSSS oh gosh I'm gonna cry

This week's guest art is brought to you by the incomparable Mister Loki! He draws a comic that I did guest art myself for recently called Until the Last Dog Dies. (http://www.lastdogdies.com/) Which you need to be reading. Like right now. As I said before in my news post, you should be reading this comic if you are into-

Werewolves
The 1920s
Angry boys
Death
Casual Nudity (I'm very big on the casual nudity apparently.)

Until the Last Dog Dies is about a down on his luck werewolf named Cage, who is barely able to support his family in the thick of the 1920s. Dogfighting rings are the best place to make a living or die trying and when Cage is made an offer he can't refuse, the must risk everything to pull himself out of poverty- but the rings aren't the only place where danger lies.

You can also find Mister Loki's work and comics here (http://misterloki.tumblr.com/), which I all highly recommend! I'll be back with more guest art next week!
IT'S HIATUS GUEST ART ROUNDUP!!!!

First out of the gate are BOYS drawn by my partner in webcomics crime, Robin! Robin draws a fantastic comic called Ushala at World's End (http://www.ushalacomic.com/) which you should be reading if you are into the following-

Sword and sorcery
Fairies
Queer protagonists
Demons
Reincarnation
Casual Nudity
Hot ladies like goddamn

Ushala at World's End is about a warrior from a rural tribe named Ushala, who discovers she is the reincarnation of their world's most feared and destructive warlord. On her journey towards spiritual redemption she meets a wayward bard named Cor, who decides to chronicle her quest to right the wrongs of her past life.

You can also find Robin's work here (http://www.robinillustration.com/) and here (https://twitter.com/theGorgonist)! New guest art will be up next week.
Double update! If you haven't seen page 23 yet just click back one.

I wanted to wrap up this scene because I have to go on hiatus starting on the 25th for three weeks. This has been overdue- I know the schedule for updates has slipped tremendously in the past month, but I've been so busy wrapping up and starting new paid work projects. This next one is going to be a doozy and suck up a good three months of my time, so I want to get as many pages for you guys done in the next three weeks before I'm lost to the voids of Tudor-era historical fiction for a while. BUT! In those three weeks we're going to be having weekly updates from some fantastic guest artists that I'm super excited for. And I hope you will be too!

Regular updates will be resuming on the 17th of March and I'll be updating the news posts soon with my convention schedule coming up in the next few months. I'm going to be at both Emerald City Comic Con and Vancouver Comic Arts Festival in the next few months, so things are going to get just a little bit crazy.
Double update!
Aaaaaaaah I'm sorry! I've been so wiped out with freelance that I have had no time for updates.

Work has had a bad habit of eating me alive in January, but I did just put up a new news post about a convention I'm going to be attending on the 13th! It's called Fanaticon and it's going to be at East Portland Community Center from 10:00-2:00 if you live in the Portland, Oregon area. It's going to be a ton of fun so come say hello!

You can read the news post here- http://maidenmachine.com/news/2016/2/4/conventions-guest-art-and-others
Sorry for the delay! I got wiped out last week with a lot of great paid work and a visit from out of town that went spectacularly. Real life mess is going a million miles an hour on my end, but we will be updating again next week. Until then, get lost in Milo's eyes.

MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE RANCH

Sorry for the day late update! Freelance work overloaded me and I wasn't able to finish up this update until Thursday night.

Merry Christmas! Hope your holidays are going fun and non-stressful.

There's a new topwebcomics incentive for y'all if you want to scroll down and vote! I'm going to try to have new incentives if not every two weeks then monthly. This week, it's outfits.

Also as a reminder, there's a new website for the comic! You can check it out here- http://maidenmachine.com/
Website!!
Exciting news! The comic has a beautiful new website! http://maidenmachine.com/

Until I can figure out redirects, this smackjeeves page will serve as a mirror to the new and official site. Go check it out! It has a fancy cast page (which I'm very excited about) and it's very clean and pretty and I'll be adding more things to it soon. But I'm so thrilled! But this was the reason for the delay in updates this week, that and flooding on my street and car troubles and STAR WAAAARSSSS. Should be updating as normal next Thursday, see you then!
