I’m afraid that our friends Science Lady and Science Dude have been replaced by Science Owl. I don’t care to speculate exactly what became of them, only because previous encounters with owls in The Dawn Chapel have been less than savory.

So! I’m feeling better about the artwork this time around than I did, generally, with The Soldier and the Tsar, though I don’t want to dwell too much on my bad feelings in regards to that story since so many people enjoyed it and it’s a documented pathology of illustrators to be overly critical of their own work. Oh; and also because I’d like to sell you the originals.

I would like to get these pages out of my house and there’s nothing that washes out the taste of frustration with your own inadequacies better than the sweet elixir of commerce. This also represents a significant Dawn Chapel first in that it’s the first time I’m selling my comics originals. It does raise the question, though, of when some of the other favorites are going to go up for sale, and I will tell you now that Better Living through UX will probably go up very shortly. As for the others, I’m going to sit on them for a while. Sorry!

Anyway. I’m kind of past the point of apologizing for being late, I think that by now you and I can agree that I have a clinical inability to keep to a schedule, but hopefully it’s enough that I am able to deliver (nearly) every week.
