I replaced the pin-up from last week with this brand-spanking-new page for 'The Cull'.

It's been seven pages since we last saw Saphyr, so I thought it was time to catch up with her, just to make sure she's still OK (for the moment). OK, so she's only in one panel, but this page was important for a number of reasons: It sets up the fact that there is a larger world connected to the Cull, with guards that are neither Hunters nor Huntresses...and that they are not entirely blind to the fact that the Huntress Prime seems to be quite draconian.

This also sets up the Council, which was mentioned way back on page 1 and which will come back into play fairly soon.

We'll peer inside Saphyr's cell on the next page and it won't necessarily be pretty - after all there's only one way out of the cell - and that is The Pit!

I've also made some layout changes to the site (my apologies to those viewing on mobile screens - I'm not skilled enough at HTML coding to make the arrow buttons shrink to display size just yet!).

Also note the shiny new 'Donate' button, where you can send a dollar or two or a hundred to support this comic!

Thanks for stopping by - during the week I will update with a cool portrait of Saphyr sent to me by the cool guys over at IronGate (http://irongate.webcomic.ws/) - a comic that shouldn't be missed!

Great looking page and flashy new layout. Gratzs!
I really like the design of the guardsman and their helmets.
The "pit" sounds similar to the Roman Colosseum where gladiators could win their freedom if successful in a a battle.
Nice work.

the detail and work you put in this comic is amazing. I wish I had the time and ability to do this well.
