Next Town Over is on a semi-hiatus due to my first kid and my eroded buffer. I didn’t want to leave the place sit idle during this indeterminate span, though, so I asked you what you wanted to see in the interim, and you overwhelmingly voted for a visually simpler short story I could keep up with updating while I square away motherhood and the first NTO collection (thanks for your unbelievable support!). This is it.

Black and Hunter will eventually return in Next Town Over Book 5: Wayward.

Sorry for such an especially late, especially rushed page; I'm not even keeping up with the easy filler comic!

I do the Genevieve pages on the Friday afternoon/evening before they post; yesterday afternoon was given over to an unplanned trip to the pediatrician and I didn't get around to this until today. All apologies.
