Chapter 6 is exactly half done; I've lost a lot of time and cushion due to a crisis of faith regarding whether or not I can continue doing this. The answer, of course, is yes. I've already spotted problem areas and areas where I've improved a little since the beginning, but the story is pretty much fully ready to go, even if the scripting process is slower than I'd like it to be.

I've also been trying to ease off a little due to a novel I've almost finished.

The local cell is P-Cell. Primus, Philip... I wonder what the names of the other two members are?

I love writing these guys, even if I still don't have a good handle on the art.

...also, for some reason, tomorrow's comic showed up today. Oh, well. Enjoy it. And its references to Nyarlathotep.

Alright, I finally got the archive and the front page to update, everything should be good now; Thursday and Friday's comics are up to date.

Progress on chapter six is going a little slower than expected, but it should be done before chapter five runs its course. Five is the last chapter in book one, and chapter six is about the acquisition of the ridiculously large magical girlfriend harem animu house. Being Lovecraft country, of course, the house has secrets of its own. Terrible secrets.

Arkham, in Lovecraft country, is disturbingly close to Beverly, and Clark's Corners is between the two. Beverly and Salem are now almost a contiguous urban sprawl, and it makes sense that the neighboring towns continue this trend, especially with the prestigious universities nearby. In this particular "setting," Glaston contains Clark's Corners and Arkham areas with Kingsport. If you head west up Yankee Division, and then get on Aylesbury, you can get to Dunwich (and the Glowbury area) in a matter of a half hour or less, but it's still an old, creepy place. Arkham Asylum has become a tourist attraction (it's "haunted," they say, and had a lot of high profile patients at one point), but the transition to a modern town has made a lot of the region fall into a new, more open and gentle array of people and places. This does not, however, obviate it from still being Arkham, and the transition of Miskatonic University into a branch of Massachusetts University has not obviated its libraries and halls from harboring the strange and unearthly.

Today's comic isn't updating for some reason; I forced an update, but I don't know how long it will be.

So. Liz is a member of the local cell. Obviously. Originally, this was two characters. I rolled it into one to save space and to make things more interesting.

In the original script, David replies "that's very Kurt Vonnegut of you," but it's a bit out of character.

F@cking Awesome

I was unaware that there was a long version of this trailer out!

This is full of so much win it's not even funny. Can't wait for this to come out. The last production by the society was just as awesome, and this one is on a much bigger budget, but still filmed in period style.

Tuesday, May 04 (Chapter 4, Page 15)

This is the part of David using logic to deduce that there is probably a conspiracy already after him, and why they haven't moved on him yet.

...sometimes, when something so unreal happens to you that it can't possibly be happening, the only out your mind has is to either convince you it's not happening, or detach itself and coldly rationalize everything.
