Oh ye gods why did this have to be a Friday comic?
If I actually did write comics around what day of the week they were intended (I've noted many times that I don't), THIS would be a WEDNESDAY comic.
Yeah, it's got a cliffhanger, but it's not a very energetic one. It's just "something is clearly up, and now we have to wait an extra day to find out what because it's a Friday". I don't consider that ideal.
That said, if I actually did try to time what day of the week pages were posted on it would be a nightmare, so this is just how Friday pages go sometimes.
Anyway, friendly reminder that this is all happening before pretty much everything in part one.
