This page embodies one of the fairly unique challenges of making an all-ages comic that has some action in it... having an action scene without overt violence. Some of you may have noticed that Sir Henry has always been quite reticent to use his weapon when faced with "living" foes - though he had no such compunction against purely robotic adversaries. This has somewhat limited what I could do with Henry as a character. He is the strength of their little group, but couldn't use that strength freely.
I've walked this fine balance as well as I could, and hopefully this action scene will remain exciting, while not being too objectionable. Ian mentioned to me that he hoped this would be Sir Henry's chance to shine - as do I. He's made a lot of heroic entrances, and helped out quite a bit, but never really had his own scene. I would really like to make this a good one.

A bit sketchy right now, but Ian's working on cleaning it up and coloring it for tomorrow. Had had to move his office space right after his return from Germany, so it's a bit hectic.
It feels like it hasn't been that long since I announced that we are coming towards the end of the comic, but time is moving right along and the last chapter is half over. With the epilogue, I figure we have about 15 pages left - but I would like to release the 5 page ending all at once, rather than over 2 and half weeks, so it might not take quite that long. Ian and I need to start getting ahead now if we're going to make that happen though.
Hope you all have a great weekend!Taylor
