Circumstances forced me to push work on the next update back a bit. It ought to be done in time for a Saturday debut.
UTC will be on break until March 22. This is for a few reasons. First and foremost, now that the major scene of this chapter is finished, I’d like to take some time to review the script for the final 6 pages of Chapter 11. There is a robust epilogue planned, some of which I wrote as far back as three years ago. (The final page has been almost totally unchanged since then; I quite like it!)
But there are a few sticking points that have cropped up as I’ve finished the climax. I won’t get into the nitty-gritty right now, but I have some concerns about the future of the comic that, depending on the solutions I decide to go with, will directly affect things in the epilogue. So I need to make those decisions BEFORE making the next few pages.
Add to that the coincidental timing of an out-of-town vacation, and that’s why I’m putting a pause on the comic. There is just too much riding on this to make a hasty decision. I’m hoping the time away will provide some fresh insight, also.
So, keep the candle burning, my faithful readers! See you in two weeks!
I’ve had slight schedule changes recently and I’m finding it’s harder to get pages done early in the week. I’ve decided to shift updates to Fridays. Early Access contributors on Patreon will receive the updates on Thursdays between 12am and 4am (U.S. Eastern).
So the bottom half of Page 243 will arrive here this Friday, Feb. 15.
Everyone, I am proud to announce that the long, long-awaited second volume of UTC is done and it’s out NOW! This collects all of Phase Two (Chapters 5-10) plus the short story “Sister.” It also features an exclusive 4-page comic that won’t be released on the website and a few other bonus materials. More info at the link below.
The eBook is available now at the new Catomix itch.io store (Vol. 1 is there as well!)
There is so much I want to say about this, and what it means for the state of Phase Three, but I won’t waste any more time right now. Please, enjoy. (And stop on back next Wednesday!)
This site uses Disqus for its comments section. Recently Disqus started running ads by default. These ads appeared above and below each page’s comments section. I do not know when they started appearing; I only noticed them today.
The content of the ads is the same type of substandard clickbait seen around the web. I abhor clickbait and will never, ever allow ads like that on this website.
I’m sorry these ads appeared here. I’ve taken action to remove them. The website is currently ad-free, as it has been for a couple of years now.
