I was having trouble getting it all to work as a single comic, so i split it into two, trying to get both done to post, but since i have this one done, i'll post it. Oddly enough, with a slight dialogue tweak that works just fine, it does stand ok on its own.
next comic will finish this little thing off.
I was gonna make these two just one comic, but this pacing is better. Of course, the page count gets even worse this way, but i think i make things too dense sometimes.
