Finally, another one! A lot of roadblocks were thrown in my way, but I'm continuing with my Copper Road story-ish thing! Let the nightmares fly! I've got two more comics in this series coming up. While my Kickstarter obligations demand I draw and post them both in the next 24 hours, I'm going to have to bank that owed work and instead focus my weekend on... other Kickstarter stuff. (I'm pushing when I can, everyone.)
I really hate to admit it, but my health problems have taken a huge toll on me the past few months. I've hit a lot of rough setbacks recently, and it's pretty scary, but I will keep working when I can. As someone whose reputation is largely based on reliability, it kills me that the fall in August, and resulting complications that included re-triggering another condition, has wrecked that part of me. I assure you, I'm drawing hard every day I'm able, and I REFUSE to let Precocious miss an update. Things may be very uncertain now, but I'm incredibly stubborn when it comes to my work. You can slow me down, but you can't stop me. (Tomorrow marks the 2-year anniversary of the initial botched surgery that started this cavalcade of medical nightmares, by the way. Do you hold a party for such an event?) As long as I'm hung up on old work, I can't take on new work - and considering my income is entirely based on the amount of work I do, this is not good at all. I'm very motivated to put the bad stuff of this year behind me and return to glory, but it will take time and a little luck.

UPDATE #2: Is TWC working again? I got the correct comic to appear when I tried voting this morning, so I hope it's good for you too!
You know what can really mess a person up? Writing a comic about nightmarish scenarios and then falling into unplanned slumber while working on it. (Thanks, new medication I will not be using any more!) Good lordy loo, my subconscious loves to do HORRIBLE things to me when given such an opportunity.
Those who follow me on Twitter should know the inspiration for this particular comic, and I expect them to thank me for not setting this comic in the location where the real-life surprise happened. Anyway, vote here to see the new comic!
(I'm debating expanding this comic into a mini-story thing for this month's Copper Roads. DO I DARE?)

It's a new month, so today is the big Copper Road update!
For today's comic, it's pretty simple. I said I'd draw it when I *could* draw it, and so it has come to pass! Precocious is set in Virginia - or at least based on a Virginia/DC outskirt location - so I was stuck with Virginia's dumb restrictions. Of course, I think they still have some weird rules about officiants I might have overlooked, but whatever. Let's be happy about any progress in a state that's had a recent history of being a laughingstock with the horrendous laws it tried to pass! (The governor that enabled that was promptly convicted of corruption, so you know how great his time in office was for the state.)
(By the way, I'm having trouble connecting to my RCSI server. I can't update the graphic over to the left on the front page yet, but I assure you the comic is new! I'm not gonna mess with anything while I'm out of town this weekend.)
