Oh, ye of little faith. See? I did make this
update on time. So what if I ended up posting it very
late in the day... and had a longer than usual time to
do it? Stop looking at me like that!
Today's comic is mostly about exposition, of the
"What the crap are we doing on Lesbos anyway?" variety.
Somehow, these little bits of backstory always seem very
simple and concise until I try to slot them into the
comic... at which point, they instantly become
needlessly complicated and wordy. The consolation is
that I got to depict Amazon diplomatic history in cute
chibi form, while at the same time proving that John
McCain used to be a Lydian envoy (Honestly, the
character didn't start out that way, but once I realised
who I'd drawn, I ended up going with it...).
