Sorry about the slow update. I've been reading a 500+ page *library* book (history) over the past week or so, and it's kind of an exhausting read. Not exactly depressing for the most part, but you want to read it in small chunks, definitely. Maybe some fanart of historical figures will turn up in the "Unrelated Art" thread.
Oh, and many thanks to L. for lending me his beautiful antique shotgun to better stage the second-to-last panel. I have to say, it's a weird feeling, sitting in front of a mirror with a shotgun in one hand and a pencil in the other. The pencil is mightier than the shotgun? I dunno. If you're still reading this, I commend your attention span. You must not be a goldfish.
