Reminder: Tues+Thur updates for the entire month. There was a second update on Thursday, so go back if you missed it.

Also, look at this awesome picture of Edith from joeyballast, author of Cato's Apprenticeship! She looks so cool. It was a very nice art trade.

Time to confront the ghost. Tho Murder tree sounds seriously ominous.

    It isn't the best name. Few people besides Edith would want to visit a murder tree.

    Edith is forthright and earnest as always!

    I am curious, but know you might not be able to answer this but I’ll ask anyway, if you have plans to tie the story back in to the overarching plot (The Helsirvente stuff that was started in the previous iteration) only with perhaps a different spin/direction on it? There are no complaints from me as I enjoy every page of the comic atm. The bantering and relationships betweeen the crew is my main draw but I’m still curious.

    Oh and that Edith piece looks great!

    I leaned too heavily into that stuff in the first version, so I changed the focus to something more straightforward in this. So far it seems easier for people to follow/care what's going on.

    Some things have changed a little bit, but it's still going in the same direction. The ghost lore is still a thing but I'm taking it slower now.

    Never would have suspected the Murder Tree, it seems so innocent!!

    That ghost looks cute AF - shame he's hiding behind the dastardly murder tree - associating with that delinquent is a one way ticket to Mistrust City :o

    Also, I read the lore earlier today and was impressed by how much you've fleshed out the ghosts/hands/Helsirvente stuff. Can't wait till it makes an appearance. Fellow readers, I urge you to check out the 'other stuff' page and be amazed!

    This ghost misbehaves a lot. I bet it doesn't have any positive role models, and it plays a lot of violent video games

    Thanks!! It's a struggle not to dump all that lore stuff all at once, but I think it will be interesting to slowly introduce in the future.

    I KNEW IT! I knew no good could come from those gosh darn videogames!

    Yeah I had a feeling you'd try to introduce it more organically as the story went on. It's a nice little bonus though for those of us who are impatient af (read: one rd_inks)

    Nah, I always appreciate the slow burn. Keep up the good work :)

    It's still in one piece... technically, the pieces are tied together

    I just thought of something... what if that ribbon/rope thing is the ghost's Object instead?

    Then it isn't very smart, because it just damaged its own Object by snapping it like that. You can't replace those; once it's destroyed, you have about a year before you fade away into nothing. (unless you constantly possess living people to regain strength. but that's hard.)
