FAQ: [link]

    As Kailani settles into her new life, she is determined to peel back the veil of mystery hovering over her new husband. In her search for answers, she may uncover a history unexpected, a relatable force, and, perhaps, some realizations she never intended to find. Likewise, Federico may find himself reliving a time he once thought best to remain buried.

Ohhhhhh it time again! This chapter is going to be a fun one. It'll be a bit tonally shifted from the previous two with a little bit more emphasis on serious concepts than the general back and forth goofiness, but there will still be plenty of laughs too!

All I can say, is it's been 11 years but you'll finally learn a thing or two about our couple, especially our big tall boy. Lenny wink 01

Why do I feel like this is going to be an intense chapter?

This is probably one of my favorite comic covers I've ever seen! I just love the potential in it, and how you did the lighting. Lil Feddy looks so nervous aha!

The photograph-- ripped, parts lost, stuck back together with cheap glue-- is a feeling many of us are familiar with. What a great touch! I'm excited to see where this chapter takes Kai and Federico, as they ease into their new life together and start unpacking the baggage they carry into it. 

This cover design is excellent, I really like your use of color and the scrawling, alien text. Does the book to the left translate to anything specific? 🤔

Thank you kindly! I put a lot of attention into the photograph quality to make sure it was clear, so I'm glad it worked!

Nah, while I had started knowing what the books were (the right one is theories on more power-efficient space engines and the left one is another unspecified theoretical religious text) I didn't come up with any sorta alphabet and just scribbles letters roughly based on titles (which I can't remember now, as they were just used as a reference point for spacing). I based a lot of the shapes on Arabic script, though! But they aren't duplicating any characters.

Oh that's cool, thanks for the answer! It's a good-looking little script, and details like that really help with the immersion. =D

A battered photo in a cracked frame, a ghost of a memory from a lifetime ago, or so it might seem...

OH SNAP! It's like a plot-teasing image within a plot-teasing image (that is itself an image!)

...And I see it is now revealed Feddy retained his adorable awkward expressions from his youth!

Ooo! Theological Studies of the Present, my favorite! ...oh and something called "The Selection", that's neat too I guess. 

For real though this is a great cover and I'm immediately intrigued. Your attention to detail is amazing in not just the photo's contents but the photo itself, that horizontal crease in the middle is's such a small thing but it adds so much to the age and condition of the photo.

I’m sure that photo is completely happy and doesn’t have any sad memories attached to it at all!
AlfaFilly's avatar
Of course! It looks like it's been well loved and cherished! Nothing bad could come from it!
