Sorry about this, folks– no Friday update. It’s a bit of a surprise to me, too, but I’ve been nasty sick for this entire week. I thought the household was all done being sick after the parade of illnesses we had after Christmas, but it turns out I was wrong. If I hadn’t just taken two weeks off my buffer would have absorbed even this lengthy delay, but on top of the Christmas break I can’t manage it. I suppose I could shrug and just say, “Well, not posting anything on the January First Friday was my original plan anyway,” but I did say I would and I feel a little bad about that. On the other hand, coughing my lungs out does seem to take away a lot of the guilt. The good news is– knock wood– I think I’m over the worst of it now, so I should be able to resume my normal schedule next week.


Happy 2011 to everyone! We’re back at last. I don’t know about you guys, but to me that break felt like an eternity. (But that’s probably because the household was sick for a week so I didn’t get as much chance to get out and enjoy it as I’d hoped. Oh well.) If the long delay between pages got to you and you have no idea what’s going on, may I direct you to the beginning of this chapter.

Here’s a bit of trivia for you: this is actually the second time we’ve seen this lounge area. The first time was in that bonus-content page in the back of Galaxion Book 1: The Jump. And did you know, that same bonus page also has Mal in it? Not that I’m shamelessly plugging the book or anything. OK, maybe I am. Hey, I’ve got an idea. How about a January Store Special? For the month of January, with any order of Galaxion Book 1: The Jump I will throw in a free pack of Galaxion sticky-notes (which you can see in this picture. The blurry words say, “CAPTAIN’S ORDERS: 1. Get more chocolate chips. 2.”, with the comic’s URL underneath). After all, you can never have enough sticky-notes.

Don’t forget to come back on Friday for the First-Friday-of-the-Month update!
