Well I hope it doesn't, but I'm fully aware that teasing folks with weekly updates full of nothing but tension-building establishing shots is cruel and unusual. Such is the biggest pitfall with trying to post a longform comic on the web.

Seriously though, folks, you don't expect Ms. Black to take a potshot at a conjurer of fire while sitting in a wagon full of dynamite, do you?

In any case, by way of reassurance that I don't aim to string you along indefinitely, I expect to be making the entirety of book 2 available digitally next week. Watch out for it.
