Brilliant Black Starres: Preview Issue Pages 23, 24 and 25 (plus special surprise)

So for those of you who got BAAU Down #12 (available here) last summer, you will recognize this as where I make my big departure. This whole time, I've been making little tweaks here and there to the art and the dialogue, but from here on, I'll be making some major changes to the ending of this chapter.
I admit, the first time around, the ending was rushed. I had been working on it casually mostly just as a way to get it down on paper. That's why all the panels are just plain rectangles. Then very suddenly i was approached by the BAAU editors and asked if I'd like to contribute... and I said "uhm, of course!" I had every intention of finishing this up as I had intended and handing it over to them, but then came the little matter of the deadline~
By this time I had 25 pages, they needed close to 30ish. So I cut my story short a little bit, took out a few plot elements I had planned on adding in and save them until later. Now, however, I have no deadline. i can fuck with the ending as much as I want :3
So grab the "Alternate Ending" in BAAU 12 while you can ;-) I'm about to make it a collector's item!

I also have a special surprise in store for you guys (in case you couldn't tell from reading the title).
Apart from BBS, I've also been working feverishly on TransCat, as you all well know.
Well! TransCat... has found a publisher :D A good publisher this time! Not KaBlam! Ugh~!
I still need to ink the whole thing, but that ain't no big deal. I finally have access to a scanner large enough to get the pages, so now it's just a matter of time.

When I have more news on an imminent release date, do expect a media circus.
In the mean time, I'd like to share with you a concept for the cover of issue 1.

Behold, and be powerless against it.
