I have been working myself ragged on freelance gigs, at the expense of regular updates on the comic and the Kickstarter, to cover rent, bills, and family medical expenses this month.

Unfortunately, after a lot of work, [REDACTED] not getting paid in full by [REDACTED] no particular reason [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED] that’s how they roll.

So, for the second half of this month, in addition to working hard on other–really great–freelance gigs, I’ll also be working myself ragged to finish a lot more comics, to sweep the story forward, to get the Kickstarter all tied up. Big things are about to happen, and I’m in a big hurry to get to them 🙂

All right, not VOLCANO big. But a few figurative earthquakes for our little Roman family.

After all the illnesses and funerals of the first two months of the year, the last thing I need is more crazy in March. I’m happiest when hanging around in Rome, so I’m going to do a lot more of that.

And of course:

Beware the Ides.
