Hey. Psst. Hey, you.

Wanna see a secret preview of a new character for the next chapter of Magipunk?

I've tweaked her a bit since this was drawn, but I can reveal that her name is Melissa, and she'll be pivotal to the next story arc.

This is going to go well.

@magnar1234: Oop, you're right. When I wrote this comic, I was sure there was some version of the myth that involved Medusa dying when she saw her own reflection, but I couldn't find it until now. Thanks! :D

Disappointingly, according to my research, gorgons have never historically been killed by looking at their own reflection.

But Candy doesn't know that.

I hope you'll indulge me with this strip - Runt being turned to stone seemed like it needed a beat of sadness before the action kicks back in.

Something I've admired in a lot of the newspaper strips I've read - Calvin and Hobbes and Peanuts in particular - is that in long story arcs, they pause from time to time to have a sombre moment for the characters. This seemed to fit, so here we are.

If that makes sense to anyone but me. Not sure it does.

Oh dear.

So by now I'm pretty sure nobody's surprised by what was hiding under Cassandra's goggles. I'd like to play a game though - a point to anyone who can find some foreshadowing in earlier comics that suggest that Runt's going to get turned to stone.

There are a few little hidden references around, I wonder how many you can find...?

@Surfersquid: The 'totally' reference is very much appreciated. I have a couple of Totally Harry Potter comics in me but they're not ripe yet.

I like the idea of vital statistics! I'll definitely include something like that!

I kinda like this comic. I like that Runt and Jason are basically just being dumb to annoy Candy - it's not something we get to see a lot of usually.

Thanks Feanix for taking an interest in a Magipunk book - it'll probably take me a while to get it all made up as I'm also working on a book of my Tumblr comics, so we'll worry about it later.

@Feanix: It'be unique commentary. The inspiration behind ideas, the reason I used particular lines of dialogue, and some of the worldbuilding lore I mentioned, like why all the buildings are built on the far side of the moon. Stuff that would have slowed down the comic if I'd bothered to explain every little detail, and stuff I left out of commentary at the time of posting because I thought it was too distracting.

Another good example: a breakdown of all the stuff that's in The Orthodontist's bookshelves.

I think I might have over-sold the next chapter of Magipunk. Things aren't going to change too much, the end of the chapter is mostly so that I can play around with some different characters.

When I planned Magipunk I had a really clear idea of the story arc and how characters would develop. There were plot twists and lots of canon and worldbuiling. As things have progressed I've realised how unecessary all of that stuff is: it's enough to just point Runt and Candy at an alien world and let them go nuts. But I do kind of still want to have this finale, if only because it makes a nice place to end a printed collection of the first 250ish Magipunk strips.

Oh, by the way, important question - is there an interest in a Magipunk book? I'm looking at doing more conventions and selling books there primarily, so I'll probably do it either way, but let me know if you'd like to buy a Magipunk book, and what kind of bonus features you'd like to see.

So far I'm wanting to add in a lot of author commentary because I always like to see those when I buy a comic collection. I've got some concept art I'll put in, but is there anything else you'd like to see? Unique comics etc?
