********** Seven Rain **********

Hey, name's Casey.
I'm a typical weeb/nerd/geek/whatever with a love for Japan, nostalgic 90's stuff, cutesy nonsense, etc...

But most importantly I CREATE COMICS! An expanded universe called The EthereaVerse! Check it out!

************ Projects ************

Current series:
- "WOE: Wings Over Ethereal"

Coming up next:
- Various EthereaVerse side stories
- "The Blackjack Chronicles"
(Be patient. That one's gonna be a while.)

Future projects:
- "Project Guardian"
(Will probably follow WOE's completion, or The BJC's, whichever ends first.)





Canceled projects:
- "Black Jack" [Sprite version]

Oof, I thought with only 5 pages I'd be able to knock out Interim I rather quickly but then I get hit with a screwy computer mouse and the worst artblock I've had in months, if not years.

I spent all yesterday morning and the night before trying to get the effects right for this page and I'm still unsure about how it all turned out, but I can't keep putting off updating trying to figure it out, and I think it's turned out presentable enough now.

(It's easier for me to nail a new character design at the last minute than it is getting new effects to look right at the last minute, I guess.)
@The_Hankerchief: For reasons I can't reveal yet, I like your choice of words.
@sentiashinou: I was alarmed at how well that panel turned out! Hands are usually the bane of my existence.
@JoKeR: That receptionist looks like she needs some too.
@JoKeR: Yeah, that too. The only reason I avoided using "Epilogue" is because most of the Interims will be flashbacks to events that happened concurrent with the chapters, so it would've felt weird.
@Me again: Man I feel for ya always being stuck in guest mode. Have you already tried going on the forums and asking about it? Maybe it's something the admin can figure out.

And yeah, that's an apt description, actually! Post-credits scenes are a pretty fitting way to think of it.
So, a little more info on these "Interims", without Twitter's character limit...

I've been rolling around ideas for how to do this for a while but I settled on simple between-chapter shorts called Interims. There will also be an Interim II after Chapter 4, and Interim III after Chapter 5.

I hope I don't get too confusing with my naming conventions, but it's all nice and organized in the archive anyway, so don't worry about it.

Basically what these Interims will be are short scenes that don't quite fit in any of the chapters, for various reasons. This one in particular I just couldn't decide whether to have at the end of Rosen or the beginning of Legion. With all the twists and turns of the story lately I thought it would rock the pacing a bit too much so I decided to set it in it's own little contained short between the two, but the others I have planned will instead be more along the lines of "this is what was happening elsewhere during the chapter" scenes that will give the reader more info without spoiling twists or surprises by having them happen in real-time.

It'll make more sense in due time, and add some variety to the archive!
@JoKeR: It was supposed to be Ancient, but that outfit was only shown during the flashback in Crisis 66.
It's all black and hard to tell with the blur and obscured face but it's the only casual outfit I've shown Ancient in. I've been trying to think of a good way to replace that panel so it's not too confusing but using the outfit he fought Arahnx in would be weird.
@JoKeR: Thanks, I'm eager as well!
(And a bit scared. There are gonna be some difficult pages to draw!)

@sentiashinou: Ha, cuteness runs in his family. He can't hide it all the time.
Oh, and I know I've been slow with the updates lately, but I'm still gonna need a short break to prep for Chapter 4. Hopefully won't be gone any longer than a week, though.

I know I still have a huge list of to-do stuff since finishing Rosen, but I don't want to get too side-tracked. I'm feeling really good about finishing both Rosen and The Crisis within a few months of each-other and I want to keep building momentum.



I really hope everyone enjoyed The Crisis as much as I did, and I hope everyone enjoys the upcoming Chapter 4: Legion!
It might not seem like much for a final page, but I wanted the Crisis ending to be something that will completely change how people feel about Fathom upon re-reading the Rosen chapter.

@JoKeR: I know that feel. Some of the simplest panels can have more effort put into them than people realize.
@JoKeR: Haha I can't tell if you're referring to his teeth appearing in the middle of Rosen, or just joking around in general.
I really love that bottom panel.
Too tired to be more specific, but I wanted to proclaim my love.
@sentiashinou: Fathom will actually address that in the following page!

(And thanks for catching that. It's fixed now.)
@General.Hankins: Oh man I don't think working on WOE takes nearly as much effort as reading it all that many times, ahaha! Those earlier pages are a real pain to re-read.
(Though only about a third of the pages were ever actually redone. I believe Passion 96 was the end of the 2013 remaking.)

Jokes aside, thanks for the comment! I really appreciate the kind words, and I assure you that this dedication will never leave me!
I second Riaud's sentiment.
@JoKeR: That's good stuff right there.
@JoKeR: Overwhelmed with unnatural power, just like our good friend Ixal.

(I promise "He was insaaAAaaAane!" won't always be the go-to reasoning for villainy in my comics, hahaha.)
