When I started writing Middleways some time ago, this is the bit I was eager to get to, because I felt like the story began to take off from here.  There are, of course, other bits I’m eager to get to, but at least now I’m like, “Okay, cool.  The story is good and started now.”

The drawing has come quite a ways since page one, but I find that being a little better mostly makes me realize how far I’ve still got to go.  I’m enjoying the hell out of it, though.

Also, I don’t know how many other people who write stories or comics or whatever do this, but I tend to identify particular plot points with pieces of music.  I’m going to try to identify those bits when I come to them and post links to the music.  This and the next few comics go with Counting Clouds, by Blank and Jones.
