Greetings, I know it has been awhile but I had to finish my capstone for my Masters degree. Now my master's degree is completed and I am in a good place with the workforce, so now I can not only continue to make dinosaur and Nigeria stuff, but I can actually work on a proper story for the dinosaurs. I've been learning a lot since I first started the comic and I would like to think I've improved as a story teller these past nine years. So I will make a new written version for Claiming the Throne, I will try and make at least 3 chapters a month or so and make sure I continue to provide dinosaur fun and Nigerian history.
