Here’s page six of this comic! Chase makes sure Ko’s form is just right.
So this is a comic project I started years and years ago. The idea at the time was to see if I could potentially do a longer comic project that could be released all at once if I took a different approach. The comic would be just a couple panels per page, with no colors (at the time), but it didn’t work out. I had 18 pages sketched, and 1.8 pages inked, when I fell off from it. Looking back at what I had recently, though, I didn’t think the art had aged too poorly, and I decided to pick it back up and handle it like I do all my comics these days (that is, release it one page at a time, and not worry about trying to build up several at once). So I colored the first page, and here it is.
This comic predates Applebridge as a concept (I think I was working on it originally around the same time as the first Mace ‘n Jackie comic), but I’m retroactively working it into the Applebridge canon. While Chase lives in “the city”, Kody and their parents now live in Applebridge (we’ll see if that comes up later in the comic or not).
