In the course of drawing this and the next few strips, I’ve had to do a lot of image reference research of bombings and collapses. I would not recommend doing the same, ever. Egads.

Unrelated: I thought I was finally getting ahead enough again that we could go back to twice-weekly updates, but naaah, I’m just ahead enough to stay on schedule, so we’re on Mondays for the time being. If I’d stop going on vacation, that might be helpful.

Also unrelated: I’m trying to parallel-path the layout and prep for collected editions of this comic. For people who might want such things, in print (or digital) format. I’ve also been trying to work on a “remastered” edition of The Utopian Vol. 1, but that’s been slooowwwww going so far.
