For my April Fool’s joke this year, I am posting actual content. Surprise!
Really the delay has been that I’ve been doing a lot of computer work lately, and it’s hard for me to muster the enthusiasm to do the time-consuming Photoshop work in my free time. If there was no digital component to Sunrise everything would probably be going on schedule.
On a side note, this is the first time I’ve shown the navigation room, and probably the last. Oh well.
I’ve been inking Sunrise (and practically everything else) with Hunt 100 nibs, but for a change, this page was inked with a Brause 511, a nib I’ve not used before. It’s stiffer than the Hunt, and therefore tends to have a finer line. I rather like it.
Sorry for the shamefully long delay. Hopefully updates will start picking up now.
Sorry this is so late. I had no heat in my work room, and it was getting pretty cold. Now it is back, and hopefully soon the update schedule will pick up.
Plenty of easter eggs this page. I won’t detail them all now because I’m curious to see how many you guys can spot. Not all the paintings are eggs, but a lot of them are. Have at it.
This page was a real chore… practically no story content but lots of boring things to draw over and over again. I should have edited it better.
Oh, and a note about Albee’s presence: Albee didn’t transfer to the Nefertiti, she’s just there for the shakedown cruise to make sure the ship gets off to a good start. After it’s over she’ll return to the Akhenaten. I’ll try to find somewhere in the comic itself to clarify that.
A couple story reminders: Why they’re visiting Lanour. Lanour’s previous appearance (WARNING: This link will take you to Issue 7).
Stephenson! Elbows off the table!
I still think Issue 7 was a disaster but I’m not above referencing it, apparently.
With the appearance of Stephenson, the gang’s all here (except Kindler, obviously).
