‘Zaki lays it all out, but Solis has other plans…

Welcome to our soon-to-be-new-artist-on-a-recurring-basis, Handerson Soares! I will be inking and coloring these pages as time goes on, so the word “temp” appears in the title of these pages. I’ve contracted him to do six “sketch” pages to help us bridge between the “old” and “current” versions of the comic, so keep your eyes on this space. After next week, we resume the NekoShiei pages, some with my colors, some with Keith’s until we run out. But once we do, we really, really, REALLY need help on the Patreon, because the updates will fall to ZERO per week if we can’t get our asses above $200 before those pages are done. So, please help us finish “The Mercadian Affair” once and for all. We will still have HALF of Act V left to go, as well as an Epilogue chapter, then we have a very special bridging story called “Surrender”, written by Kim Godwin and illustrated oh, so long ago by EviktedRei…
