Hey guys!
Sorry for the long wait since last update - I've been updating on the main site only once a week due to an upcoming convention, so, I've been kind of letting SJ fall by the wayside. So sorry about that!

Our second cast Q & A starts now in honor of Otherknown's second birthday! Go to http://otherknown.tumblr.com/ask to leave a question for any member of the cast (more details on tumblr)

First Q & A can be found here: http://www.otherknown.com/mailroom-1/

Thanks, and I look forward to your questions!! I'll begin queuing up pages soon (as well as returning to that 2-a-week schedule!)

let's just chalk this up to a learning experience instead

note: no update this Saturday (possibly Wednesday too, but we'll see!) should return to normal after that!

bit high up, there!
Forgot to share this on the actual day, so here's my Valentine's Day art for this year! Hannah with her spouses, in perhaps a happier future time. :)

hey hey hello I bring you the first page of ch3. Hope we are all still hanging in there.

UM? Excuse me? Where is the mountain? WHAT ABOUT THAT CLIFFHANGER LORA. Too bad, here we are, it’s a party.

[Jokes aside, a somewhat serious author’s note about the use of a certain word on this page: Ordinarily (especially in a comic like this that takes place in the future) I like to steer well and clear away from the use of certain themes as plot points or to “shame” characters. When I do something like this it tends to be sparingly and only after consideration. Just wanted to say that!]

Hope y’all enjoy this chapter. It’s time to charge right into it

Hey everyone, welcome to chapter 3, Augury!

The first comic page is up Wednesday and updates will resume normally from there (Wed/Sat). I'm real excited about this chapter. Can't wait til we get this ball rolling again!

In case you're curious, here's a few of the things I've been up to during the break:

+Early chapter one revamps. Pages 1-9 of chapter 1 were redrawn (merely re-inked in some places) and recolored! I did this both as a favor to myself and as a way to retain more readers. Give them a look if you wish! If you want to see side-by-sides of the old pages with the new ones and some commentary on why I made the changes I did, you'll be able to see them on...</li>

+Patreon! Very soon I'll be launching a patreon page in case you want to support the comic monetarily (ooo), to my deep appreciation! Of course, the patreon content isn't necessary to enjoying the story (which will always be free online)! What I'll be posting will mainly be in-depth looks at the process of making each page, as well as bonus lore, outfit designs, concepts, etc. Maybe a few previews of things to come in the story. Maybe even a few bonus comics!</li>

+Promotional art, a few posts queued for the patreon, a small buffer for chapter 3 so I can keep bringing you COMICS on a REGULAR SCHEDULE

See you on Saturday!

@Oly-RRR: Haha, thanks! I wanted the healing period to reflect what it is in our time rather than implement some futury thing that would require additional explanation/page space. I did a bit of research, hopefully enough!

@Oly-RRR: Oh gosh - thank you SO much for all the lovely comments!! I had a really nice time reading them all, it is really informative for me to know what people are thinking after every page, as well as just plain fun :D I really appreciate it! Chapter 3 is coming soon and I hope you enjoy it!!

@siovon: Oh gosh, thank you so much!! I'm so happy you're enjoying the comic!
“Only a tiny sliver of this arid planet is habitable, and under constant twilight, but the locals have made it their glimmering paradise. I hear the market is bustling this time of year! Maybe you’ll even catch a glimpse of Erasmus native Ajupris Lerazmine, the infamous heiress whose family’s jewelry company has expanded all over the galaxy.”

Happy holidays!! I ended the chapter just in time to post this very mood-breaking image, a happier AU where nothing hurts. (I meant to draw Judd with a prosthetic leg but accidentally went on autopilot – but I mean perhaps it’s just a very realistic leg.) The gang’s taking a break to visit Aja’s home planet Erasmus. There’s a little something for everyone here: good food, good friends, good fashion, mismatched clutter for your tacky room, glowing paper poodle-lizards. 2016 was a bad year but I hope you can spend its tail end with people or activities you love.

Mini hiatus in between chapters but, will be back in January! Check my twitter for specifics as I decide them, and I’ll of course update this blurb here when I know for sure! See you then!

WAH! I can’t believe chapter 2 is finally done. All three of those bubbles at the bottom are Eko’s. Couldn’t figure out a pretty way of doing the tails. Let me know if it reads unclear. Ch3 on the way soon!

An inopportune change of scenery.

Who’s that with Chenu you may ask…….. why, it’s the lady he was with at the beginning, who has Always Looked Like That, covert wink. Eko’s design was pretty uninspired (and I hated those pages anyway) so I went back and did some heavy edits, mostly to pg 2 and 3.
