The end is in sight!
Since making comics is a new thing for me, I tried to keep this first story pretty simple and structure it to fit within a single twenty-ish page book since I really wasn't sure how I would feel about the process after I finished it.
As somebody who tends to overthink things anyways while working a job that generally requires many revisions (such is the nature of animation and video game work), its been both terrifying and refreshing to work at the break neck pace that comics seem to require.
