Since NTO only updates weekly I might as well give folks a little something more to come back for; why not air out some of the old doodles from the wayback, before I'd even started writing the comic?

Here's one from a couple years ago, somewhat ambiguously featuring both main characters. Ms. Black's design's changed a bit more than Mr. Hunter's.  I should revisit this design; it'd be a nice teaser/ad image.

In other news, if you make a PayPal donation in any amount, now, with the sidebar donate link, there'll be an amazing NTO pinup by Jon Cairns (with whom I'm improvising Poison Pen Letter and who is soon launching Alpha Flag) awaiting you at the end of the linkback by way of thanks.

In other other news, despite delays the print version of book 1 is ready for the printer.
