And there you go! Issue 18.

Stop by Monday! Issue 19 begins then, and I’m serious when I say “to be concluded”. I’m gonna send this comic out with a bang, and Issue 19 is when that begins.

I meant to say this on the last page, but I’m crazy busy right now:

My Deepest Thanks to everyone for your help with the Chipin drive! Thanks to you guys, I will be able to finish this comic without worrying about what’s in the fridge or which bills need to be paid.

You guys are the best! Thanks for reading Locus and for wanting to see the end of the story. You won’t be disappointed, I promise.

Those of you who chipped in ten bucks and got on the Sneak-Peek Mailing List should be able to attest to that. You’re already on page 3 of the next issue! And you can’t tell me you saw that coming.

There are still 44 slots for that list, by the way. Throw $10 this way and I’ll hook you up!

If you’re on the list already and like what you’re seeing so far, let everyone know in the comments below! But don’t give away any surprises, especially today’s!

Thanks again! See you Monday. Between now and then, check out Raven’s latest commission! He makes all that wet watery stuff look so easy. I’m gonna eat his brain and steal his powers.

Now there’s something you don’t see every day.

For the record: this page is the reason the cover to Issue Three looks like it does. I didn’t want her natural hair color to be a surprise.

Stay tuned this week! Let’s wrap this thing up. Two more pages!

And then…hoo boy.

And they’re off!

That’s the last we’ll see of Heaven and Adam, too. In this story, at least.

One of these days, I want to do a story of Isaac and Eden running around the Realms of the Dead, just checking everything out. In that story, they travel from world to world and they get to see how those worlds have fared in the aeons since the Bloodied Ones went away.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US, so if you’re reading from there, Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks to you guys, I will have an honest-to-god Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you! Seriously.

Also, thanks to you guys, official studio mascot and uncredited co-writer Thulsa Doom got to have his Thanksgiving early! He hasn’t eaten in weeks, but last night he got two delicious mice. Two!

You can view Thulsa Doom enjoying your generosity by clicking here and here. The green thing outside the tank in the first photo is the papasan I sit in when writing Locus. Thulsa Doom is very helpful in the writing process simply by being the world’s most awesome corn snake. He’ll be 10 years old next summer! That’s the longest I’ve ever had a pet. Thanks again for helping me feed him!

There are still 50 slots left for the sneak-peek mailing list! Check it out here, if you haven’t already.

Stop by Friday! Skip all that “Black Friday” bullshit and check back in with Spook, Silk, Dee and Moondoggie! They’re going to prepare to jump to the world of Xel’Duum’s Temple.

Only four pages left this issue! Two more surprises are on their way before Issue 18 is over. Don’t miss it!

The Wheel is a little behind the times. Back in his day, succubi were much taller and an Indigeni with a sword meant something else altogether! Re-read Issue 13 if any of those concepts is unclear to you.

So…is Adam an Indigeni? Yes and no.

Technically, he is. But he’s not the kind of Indigeni the Wheel is used to. The Wheel is used to the humans from Xel’Duum’s day. Adam was created much, much later.

Stop by Wednesday! Let’s see how this turns out. Between now and then, check out Raven’s new site, Kickbutton.com! He has five awesome zombie-themed buttons for only five bucks! The zombie cat is my favorite, and it’ll be yours, too! Go have a look!

If you’ve thrown $10 into the Chipin thing above, you already know what happens! And thanks to everyone who has contributed so far! If you don’t get an email today with the next page, let me know! I don’t want to accidentally miss anyone!

And even though it says I’ve surpassed my goal, there are still slots left for the email list of people who get to read Locus five days a week until it’s done! 53 of the original 100 slots remain open, as of yesterday.

If you’d like to have Locus emailed to you five days a week, and get all my wallpapers to boot, click that ChipIn button up there and send $10 this way. I’ll add you to the mailing list, which will only ever be used to send you comic pages.

Thanks again to everyone who chipped in! You guys are the greatest. I’m so glad to be in a position where I know I can finish this comic, and you’re gonna dig the ending. I promise.

Sammael’s Wheel. Traditionally known as an Ezekiel’s Wheel, but, of course, it’s a little different that what you might have read. It wouldn’t be a Locus comic any other way!

Stop by Monday! Interesting things happen!

Between now and then, vote for me with the TWC100 button up there to the right of the comic page, and you’ll see a sneak-peek at the next page.

You can have fun all weekend voting and seeing new sneak-peeks, because incentives are daily again! When Locus is in the top 50 over on TWC, I get more ad revenue. So thanks for your votes!

And if you can’t wait till Monday to see what’s going to happen, click here! That Chipin app up there shows how many people get to read ahead! They got to see Monday’s page yesterday, as a matter of fact. They are reading next Wednesday’s page even as we speak!

If you’d like to get Locus emailed to you Monday through Friday, it’ll cost you a measly ten bucks. That’s it! And thanks to everyone who has donated so far! I get to stop eating beans and rice now! I even get to have Thanksgiving Dinner this year. That’s awesome.

And…

I probably shouldn’t tell you this now, but there’s going to be a surprise next year for everyone who donated. Stay tuned!

This is the page I’ve been talking about: Page 60. As in: there are 59 updates left before Locus is done. It’s a big milestone for me. I’m stoked to get this story put to bed. I’ve never written or drawn a comic this large before, and I’m about ready to be done. hahahaa

I’m just gonna crank these pages out one a day until they’re done. They’ll still go online M/W/F.

Anyway, stop by Friday to see the Wheel!

Between now and then, vote for me with the TWC100 button up there to the right of the comic page, and you’ll see a sneak-peek at the next page. Do it tomorrow, too!

Incentives are daily again! When Locus is in the top 50 over on TWC, I get more ad revenue.

Also: I’m sure you noticed the Chipin box right above the blog post. Click here to see what that’s all about. Thanks!

So there you go! Adam and the Wheel are friends, or at least acquaintances. Stop by Wednesday and hear what Adam has to say about how he got into Heaven, among other things.

Between now and then, check out the bitchin’ commissions that Raven is putting up on his site. And don’t forget to check out DJ’s new comic, Trader Don’s. It has magic tikis and a cute redhead! Among other things, of course.

There’s a music-related joke (possibly a pun) on this page, but it’s too subtle. I will be genuinely surprised if anyone gets it.

Stop by Monday! Isaac and Eden learn some things from Adam.

Between now and then, please consider donating a couple bucks for a map of the Realms of the Dead, using the handy link right under today’s page! I’m drawing a page a day to get this comic done, and as of this writing there are 58 pages left. Between now and then, I sure could use a little financial help. And my heartfelt thanks to the four donators so far! You guys are awesome.

Tell you what: if you donate between now and Monday, I’ll also reveal the music-related joke! It may or may not be funny, but I promise it will be interesting.
