Just a quick update to show plenty more comic is on the way. I got slowed down a fair bit last week as I had an important job interview to prepare for, which involved much reshuffling of my portfolio and excessive preparation for improbable questions.
I figured with that clear I’d have some time to push forward with Apothecary Supreme but got a nasty scare yesterday when our house’s Carbon Monoxide alarm went off; not for the first time either as it had gone off the day before which we’d put down to it passing a detector’s typical lifespan.
As it turns out, builders working on the joined house next door had – in what may be one of the most negligent acts I’ve ever witnessed – temporarily moved the boiler flue INSIDE the extension being built, slowly filling up our homes with the toxic gas. I’m all for forgiving mistakes but considering this one could have killed us perhaps I can be forgiven for being completely furious.
On the bright side (if there is one) this disturbing incident got me out of the house for the day and I had a decent run sketching out forthcoming pages in a coffee shop. Meanwhile, page 17 just needs some cleanup and dialogue before it finally surfaces.
I’ll likely post it later today, in the meantime folks I would highly commend the values of a decent CO detector…
