And, with the release of volume 9 of the book series, we have changes to the Omnibus:
  • New projected ends to books 10-12 (Tentatively called "Holding Up a Mirror", "Twenty Percent Cooler", and "The Flight Team").
  • As of the end of May, we are pretty much right where book 12 would be projected to end.
  • Did a wee bit of cleanup on things, especially in the full-letter-page format version.

I have updated the Omnibus to reflect changes to three characters - and updating the storyline through today's comic.

I should point out that, out of convenience, I split the current storyline between Katherine's leaving to Castela showing up into the library as one "storyline", and the current "what really happened to Atsali's parents" as a second.

Anyways - the four formats, as usual:
Word Letter
PDF Letter
Word eBook

To summarize Paul's FB traffic of the past couple of days...
New character: Cori Phillips, half-orc, Gryphon kindergarten teacher. "Sees herself as a delicate flower."
Here she is after a day of teaching kindergartners.

... and I won that particular drawing. :)

I'm a sucker for authenticity, and a cry of "I need a beer!" is about as authentic as it ever gets. It'll be interesting to see where Paul goes with this new character.

I'm rather puzzled by her choice of skirt, given her height, and the fact that she teaches kindergarden... :roll:

Hence the reason why she needs a beer...

Cori has now joined our illustrious Cast of Characters - along with Valerie.

JW, Paul has identified Cori's boyfriend in the eBay panels as Andrew... I gather you'll list him when he appears in a daily.

Okay, didn't know that - but yes, formal intro in the strip first.

Everything in this comic is author appeal... ;)

Omnibus is updated through today's butterfly strip. (I didn't previously catch that I'd called Digit a "he" in the character listing... :oops: )

Paul just posted something interesting about our Miss Lilith:
I just realized that I never explained in comic about my character Lilith. She is my comic's version of THE Lilith, the spin is that she is the Wapsi universe's first vampire. She was the first to die alone, totally forgotten. She is also a character in my Medusa comic spin off. Now you know. :)
In case you forgot: Best Coffee (the other person is Stheno, Euryale's sister).
