OH MY GOSH, EVERYBODY GO TO THE FANSTUFF PAGE RIGHT NOW... or check the Facebook page... or the Far Out There tumblr... or my Twitter, I'm basically telling everybody everywhere ever that this is now a thing. :D

Anyway, the "leftovers" bit is mostly the same, but left deliberately vague, 'cos that's how we DO things in this comic now.

I have no idea what you're talking about, Ichabod. That doesn't seem the least bit worrisome!

Also, look! I finally found an excuse to stick fictional pop cultural into the background again! For some reason, lengthy scenes in the underbelly of a space shantytown just don't provide many chances to fit in billboards.

And guess what, more Voting Incentives! See how a really, REALLY bad idea eventually gave birth to a really, really good one!

Well, ONE of them realized it, at least...

Nah, the whole reason Ichabod looks the way he does is so I'd have a cosplay I could do WITHOUT a wig :)

So... another laaaate update, and for one of the most embarrassing reasons possible. I literally fell asleep while I was supposed to be drawing this thing. Uh, oops? Well, that and I spent most of the day fiddling with the next month or two of storyline stuff. As always, I'm planning to put the regular story on pause in December for a big Christmas Special Thing, and the thought occurred that if I re-organized some future stuff a bit, I could pause everything on a pretty cool cliffhanger... Well, it turned out that "a bit" actually meant "a whoooooole lot", which also delayed things quite a bit.

But speaking of story stuff, AWESOME NEWS! WE'VE FINALLY GOT NEW VOTING INCENTIVES AGAIN!!! I know, right? How long has it been? TOO LONG, I SAY! So, go vote on TWC and see some glimpses of Far Out Theres that never were!

Oh, and if you'd rather just read COMIC comics again, I finally updated the Incentive Gallery too! Yay!

Oh, but this a Maid Cafe we're talking about. The rules are a little... different there...

OH RIGHT! I said I was gonna start doing filler pages again, didn't I? OOPS!

So... I only just recently discovered that El Ray Network shows, like, every kung fu movie EVER, and that might have slightly motivated my creative process here... even though Ninjas are clearly Japanese and those movies are all Chinese (and three-fourths of the time have "Shaolin" somewhere in the title)

It'll probably dawn on her eventually, but she's got a lot of other things competing for her attention right now (and don't forget, Layla hasn't actually SEEN Skye this whole time. Trigger didn't find her until AFTER Layla dumped him on Avatar. Without that visual confirmation, Skye's presence isn't gonna be all that fresh in Layla's mind)

So... this page here is many hours late. Why, you ask? Well, it was the first one I did from scratch after all those weeks of doing nothing but Conventional Wisdom, and... I kind of forgot how. I don't just mean I lost track of the update schedule, I mean I literally blew the whole day trying to relearn how to draw these characters properly (to say nothing of actual page layout, which which is still pretty off) Seriously, the whole afternoon spent just doodling and doodling until I got back in the groove enough to even START work on this page. Adventures in cartooning!

Unfortunately, this page taking so much longer to finish means I wasn't able to get a new Voting Incentive whipped up in time. I can absolutely guarantee there'll FINALLY be something new behind that Voting button by Friday, though. Really for real! A whole new serious of behind the scenes thinggies!

I literally cannot remember the last time I was at a DC area con and it DIDN'T end with a stop at Five Guys.

Well, there's your AUSA 2014 comics! Sorry it took so long, and ended up so short (seriously, I cut, like, FIVE planned pages over the week), and still managed to look SUPER unpolished even by my own low standards... but that's why I really REALLY shouldn't try to do two cons in a row like this. Let's see if I learned my lesson this time.

Anyway, 2014's starting to wind down, con wise. Unless something changes, the only other con on my plate this year is NC Comic Con. That means *gasp* Weekly Filler Pages are coming back! YAAAAAAY!
