I wanted to have a flickering lightbulb over Kevin's head as he thought, but would a future kid like Kevin even know what a lightbulb IS?

So, if you tuned in earlier this week, you were greeted with a half finished comic and a rather dour bit of comments from me. If you DIDN'T catch that update, my Grandmother passed away a few days before, so I rushed the update so it would happen while was out of town for the funeral. Now that I've had time to complete the entire comic, I figured I might as well replace the comments with something a little sunnier as well.

As the Alt Text mentions, I struggled with how to express the awkward pause as Kevin's wheels slowly turn. At first I was thinking a whole BUNCH of panels, but I couldn't figure out how to make that layout work. Then there was the question of whether or not a flickering, struggling lightbulb would work in a futuristic SciFi comic. Eventually, I just went with a layout that would give me the most space to draw Kevin's reaction... which, in a remarkable coincidence, also ended up being the idea that was fastest to draw. It's funny how often my purely creative decisions end up like that.

Given stated circumstances, we understand why updates would be incomplete or absent.

It may have taken him a while, but it seems that Kevin has come to a conclusion.
Also, I'd think that although people probably won't know what real lightbulbs are, they'd probably still associate them with getting an idea (like floppy disk icon is associated to save file, even by people that have no idea what a floppy disk is)

Also, like how it says it didn't look like Vengeance opened his mouth in order to talk.

It's okay man, you didn't even need to update. You have my most sincere feelings for this. I hope you feel better soon and. Don't worry, gods taking care of her now

It's okay, man. Take as much time as you need. :)

Also: Man, it took Kevin a while, didn't it?

Thanks for all the kind words, guys. If all goes well, I should have a fully edited version of this page ready to go up along with Friday's comic.

An' here I was hoping to get in some clue-by-four practice...

(Also; condolences on your grandmother's death, Simon.)

I hope it's not late to give you my condolences. I started writting twice or thrice but it always got awkwardly overanalized.

So, my condolences. Thank you for staying around, and let's hope that you feel fine, as early as you are comfortable with.

Thanks a bunch for all the kind words, guys. I really appreciate it!
