Interlude 1

Luckily for us, a skip week needn’t be a barren week. All throughout Shaky’s diary we’ve found thoughts, margin-scrawls and footnotes of various sizes, and on various topics – presumably attesting to the frequent bouts of boredom the man suffered – which didn’t themselves warrant the narrative treatment. We can therefore take the opportunity to pause in the tale and bring you these 1st-hand observations from his terrible, troubled little world.

Interlude 10

We know skip weeks aren’t ideal. Episodic narratives like this need to flow, to build momentum, to grab you by the knackers and not unclench. Alas, restoring and adapting Shaky’s diaries for the comic-book form – wiping off the blood, stitching torn pages back together, interpreting the poor idiot’s terrible handwriting – is a laborious and often thankless task, and once in a while even those of us dedicated to such things must cry “time out”.

We’re skipping even the interlude this time due to an unforeseen pixel shortage in the midwest this week, so it might be a good time to catch up on Disenchanted. See you next week.

The Final Interlude

One last pause, for three weeks this time, and then… well, you’ll see. The end begins on July 17. The above image is from the Fatal Fantasy cover of Crossed: Badlands #61, in stores in a couple months. In the meantime, check out what’s going on with Disenchanted.
