I wonder how snipers in movies always find a spot for their sniping where they can be completely undisturbed for a longer period of time...

Also, cameos!
From left to right, we have in the middle panel...
A mysterious unnamed guy from NIL; Canticum Bellum,
Nita from The Extras,
Sylvester from The Mansion of E,
Stetson from Pine Hill Creature Feature,
and in the lower panel...
Naomi from JinGo! Beyond,
Mason from The Underground Empire.
Many thanks to all participants! There are still a few more cameos to come in this chapter!


I think I'll just do weekly updates for the remainder of the month, in order to replenish my strip buffer and to get more time for my other projects.

Take your time, I understand.

Thank you!

The next page is already drawn, just this time scheduled for next mid-week instead for this weekend.

But that's exactly it: My buffer is currently exactly just one page, and that makes me feel uncomfortable.
It make me fear that metaphorically the same will happen to me as it did to Mira trying to catch Neon on her motorbike: "Tripping" once (e.g. one day too many where I don't have the opportunity to draw anything), and I lose the chance to hold up my usual update schedule.

Thus this controlled temporary update slowdown instead.

you and your "preparation in advance" always amuses me

speaking of preparation, it looks like someone forgot to dress up in construction worker garb and put up a bunch of "floorboards removed" warning signs
Microraptor edit delete reply
Oh, I do get the appeal of not stressing myself out over the updating schedule so much, and e.g. in the simplest model just posting the pages whenever they are done.
But I like to bridge gaps of low productivity that otherwise might lead to miniature hiatuses (and also to be prepared for hypothetical unforeseen situations which may lead to larger hiatuses!), and to have time for editing mistakes in the pages before anyone notices.

As for the sniper's preparations: Yeah, Jouko is lucky that the tour guide cares more about upholding the damn house rules rather than the fact that he just saw something he should probably tell the police about...

Ok, I snorted weirdly at this page in an otherwise quiet room.

So it seems then that this comic is not suitable for reading it in a library! :-D

"And he's not wearing a mask, how rude!"

Microraptor edit delete reply
Yeah, that too!
I'd guess that the masks are mandatory for participants of the tour. Furthermore, it would make sense to restrict the number of people in any tour, so that Jouko - mask or not - can not even tag along with this one.

I laughed out loud when I read this page. The tour guide isn't bothered in the least that a man is up there with a sniper rifle aiming at the people below, but Dammit...don't be up in the castle unless you're part of a tour! Now go wait for the next one! :D

The tour guide has clear priorities, it seems! :-D
