A little side note on the Vampire Duel Ref: you can see a little of the comic before it at the top of that comic (http://archives.sluggy.com/book.php?chapter=68#2016-03-04) and it almost looks like the comic is cut off. This is one of those things I need to manually go through and fix in the new archives. It’ the biggest thing left over from when the new system started. I will get to it, it has not been forgotten. There have just been a steady flow of other pressing things.

Once-Every-20-Years-Auctons we held last September! Death by
sandwich-toothpicks! Snazzy way to go!

Sidenote: So I remember back when I did Fire and Rain and, down the line, when rain has been an issue, I'd exclaim many times "whose stupid idea was it to set this entire story in a rainstorm?" Drawing rain is actually fun but eventually time consuming to have that effect in every panel. Now a'days I'm like "whose stupid idea was it to set this story around the exterior of a massive space station?" In this case it's because I suck at keeping the station architecture straight. I'm doing my best but it feels more like I'm drawing trees in a forest as a background. I try to keep the density of the forest consistent, but might not get each tree identical panel-to-panel. In this case, the airlock Torg and Zoë end up in is the same one Roberts was ejected from but eagle eye'd sluggites might notice the exterior shot of that airlock is different in different comics. That's my failings. But yes it's the same Airlock#01 from before.

DURN IT! GLOVES! Torg and Riff both have gloves on but time and time again I keep drawing them without gloves! I've been catching it and fixing it a lot behind the scenes, and I remembered in today's comic but screwed up the last few. I'll fix them as soon as the next book is off to the printers!
