Author's note from the MeFi Project page:
Oh, I also have to thank the Mefi users that chimed in on this question: General Tonic, deanc, likeso, StrikeTheViol, plonkee, and zaelic. I asked that question a bit late in the process, so the results of the input are minor, but I appreciate it and it'll really help moving forward when (knock on wood) I'm able to make a second volume!
As for reading the comic, you can start with the prologue
, or jump right into Chapter 1
, which is now complete.
Viewing tip: press the F11 key and enable kiosk or full-screen viewing in most browsers, as the comic panels are rather large.
