I’ve officially begun work on volume 2. I have the complete story laid out, the first 10 or so pages written, and the “cover” page is being drawn up. I’ve decided on a few changes for volume 2 (no cover pages other than this first one, Mary’s getting a different look, maybe some other little things) but unless there are last minute requests for changes, that’s about it. I’ll still be taking a bit of a break from uploading pages, uploading sketches instead, but it won’t be for too long.

Next week, it’s the last page of the volume 1 finale, then comes the two page epilogue. But as for this page, is that a portal in the sky? Yep, it is.
