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.
