    Pawnz for December and January
    Hey all! I've been stuck under Book 19 for a while, trying to solve an puzzle that at times seemed unsolvable! Now that I've pinned it down, the rest of the schedule falls into place!

    BOOK 19 WILL BE PERFECT, AND WILL BE OFF TO THE PRINTER BY JANUARY!

    Book 19, "BROKEN", is a very important book for me to do right. And because of the tone of the book, and the dark ending, creating a fitting bonus story of a proper tone proved almost insurmountable. But I found it at last! The bonus story will appear mid-book, between archive chapters 58 and 59 respectively. On the surface it's a fun little stand-alone story. But its also going to be doing so much heavy lifting on a whole other level. If I do this right it might be my favorite Sluggy book bonus story of all time!

    Its a great euphoric feeling, looking past a wastepaper basket filed with crumpled up concepts, to find the one concept that's not just passable, but perfect! Yeah, I almost danced.

    This bonus story is going to be between nine and 14 pages, and that's all that's left to do for the book to be off to the printers. Since I know the workload, I can tell the book may not get to the printer until January. But again, this is the rightest of right courses. And, as luck would have it, Leah will be back from college for much of December, maybe I'll make her color it. (Yep, guys, Leah's all college-like now!)

    To keep me book-focused, I'm going to limit myself to a maximum of two comics a week, or less, until Book 19 is off to the printers!

    THE SLUGGY STORE WILL OPEN BLACK FRIDAY!

    Now that I know Book 19 won't be sold in 2018, there's no reason to keep the store closed until it comes out. We'll open back up on November 23rd. We're not really going to have anything newer than Book 18. If I can, I'll also do an early December Original Art Auction. Original Sluggy Freelance Art is always new, unique, and a perfect gift. Hey, that's actually a great idea. *ahem*

    SLUGGY ORIGINAL ART AUCTIONS IN EARLY DECEMBER

    OK that was easier than I thought!

    PAWNZ AND BOOKMARKS FOR DECEMBER AND JANUARY

    I haven't designed the bookmarks yet, but I've got pawnz and themes! Fittingly we're capping off 2018 with the man of the hour. Farewell, Dr. Schlock! And I've been meaning to do a Pawnz of Aylee's near-human current form, so that's what I chose to open 2019 with!

    And that's all I got! I'm back to work on that bonus story, dancing on the inside! ;)
