- I know, you can't quite reach Arizona over the Rio Grande. But at least you get close enough that it's not so far anymore over land...

- Aino may have issues concerning Camilla's deal with the philosopher's stone, but she is nevertheless very proud of her exceptional marksman skills.

----------------

Also, there is a bunch of amazing new artworks in the fan art section!

Honestly I was expecting her to tranquilise the man, but that's a more creative solution

Uh, yes that would have worked too...
(And it would have solved the potential "is this gun muffled?" plot hole...)

Nice muting via semitransparent layer on those nighttime shots.

Shading, man. We have got to get you rocking that shading and then things are going to take off!

FLW ain't gonna know what hit him!

Thanks! Semitransparent layers are very useful and versatile things!

And yeah, I admit that I have so far been very lazy when it comes to shading, having done this only on "special occasions" (like e.g. if some glowing object creates reflections)...
(And perhaps one day I should also try out blurring for better foreground-background separation...)

The question is though: What the heck did FLW do with the philosopher's stone...? ;-)

I was NOT expecting a Frank Lloyd Wright heist in this comic, this is GREAT

Cryptida: Expect the unexpected! :-D

(Seriously, readers telling me that I actually managed to pull off unpredictable plot twists makes me kinda feel pride! I just hope I won't eventually end up verging too much towards the other end, wherein the plot devolves into just completely random stuff happening...)

I love the unexpected stuff that happens in this comic! It's clear that you put earnest research into it, which makes all the difference.
