Read Chapter Thirteen (part two).
Start from the beginning.
Thanks so much to the devoted core of fans who have been reading the book and commenting on the blog. If there's one thing I've learned throughout this nearly two-year project, it's that while I don't need rockstar readership numbers to keep motivated, it is helpful to know that at least one or two people are genuinely looking forward to the next chapter.
I have to say thank you to Steven Stwalley, who initiated this whole project in Fall 2006. There are always a hundred things that COULD occupy my free time, most of them unproductive, so thanks, Steve, for waking up my competitive side by laying down a big fat challenge. I regret not being able to do twelve consecutive 24-hour comic challenges in a row, so I'm hoping the extra 62 pages makes up for it.
For the record, here's the final stack of originals, next to a glass of scotch (for size reference). In honor of finishing Shanks, I stopped by ol' Lowry Hill Liquor and picked up a bottle of Dalwhinnie. I was actually hoping to pick up a bottle of Sheep Dip -- which has overseen much of the creation of Far Arden -- but they were out. Such is life.
