Brilliant Black Starres: Preview Issue Pages 26, 27, 28, 29 & 30

I'm back, after a long, long holiday break. A little longer than I shoulda taken, but it was needed, and unavoidable. Re-constructing this ending has taken a considerably longer amount of time than I initially imagined. The holidays themselves have taken a lot out of me, physically as well as emotionally, and while trying to coordinate this, I've also been coordinating the eventual (and impending) release of TransCat #1. It's happening, like... sooner than I even imagined. Tomorrow I'm scanning every page, and then inking will begin. I have the wonderfully talented Courteney Car working on an epilogue and an alternate cover, and the ever amazing, up-and-coming Dani Smithers is colouring MY cover.
This... is likely to be the greatest and most elaborate endeavor. And to be sure, because this is my singular most personal story. Even more so than Blood Will Tell back in 2008, but that was always a doomed project, because it was written out of anger. TransCat is the very definition of a Labour of LOVE! I was raised on Sailor Moon, so I've always believed that love will save the world, just took too long for me to take my own advice.
Needless to say, TransCat will be nothing short of incredible. I'm a little disappointed actually, that I'm only releasing Chapter 1 to you so far. As much as i'm excited to show it to you, I'm freaking out over how I ended Chapter 4.
I could be wrong, but I don't think this is a story that's ever even been attempted in a mainstream comic. I could be wrong, feel free to correct me if I am. I DO need to read more comics anyway, it's totally possible I've missed it if it has happened. Regardless, I'm super excited.

I really wish I had more to say about this, aside from fawning over how excited I am.
