The Magi are facing a losing battle. Their civilization and way of life, built upon the ruins of magic's very source, are threatened by a dying world. The Veil's ancient barriers are failing-- eroded by a mysterious invasive force that can corrupt, twist, and warp all it touches. Only the elite organization known as the Reapers are equipped to face this menace, their years of combat training against this infestation barely enough to maintain the status quo.
While their bravery affords the denizens of the Veil a measure of safety, Maia still struggles to embrace this new reality. To top it all off, her magic will not manifest, and graduation is fast approaching!! At least the falling walls might spare her the embarrassment-- if her shady new tutor doesn't get them killed first.

That’s right, new chapter begins today!
We’ll be starting with a new 5-page short comic written and drawn by my writing partner, Paula! That’s a first for the comic... Exciting! She also did a few new illustrations for the comic which I’ll love to share once she’s posted them up. The extra comic will come as two updates per week (Tues and Thurs ), with the last coming before the main chapter’s start.
So, wait, for those who follow me on tumblr-- wasn’t I also doing a short comic for this chapter? Yes! Chapter 3 will come with two shorts. The short with the brothers will come either in the middle or at the end of the chapter… (or if I just so suddenly feel like posting it. Gotta keep people on their toes.)
When the main comic starts, the first update will not consist of only the chapter title page since I’ve already posted that up on socials for people to see— the first day will be a double update day and will come with the first page. After that, It looks like we may be doing single updates per week except in the case of two page (and a couple of triple page) spreads.
If I don’t like that schedule, I’ll just revert to what it was before lol but for now, we’ll do it this way so I can keep working on future updates without much impediment. There’s some fun stuff coming up for you.
For some reason updating the news section here is ever able to slip through my mind, but I post ever-frequent updates, sneak previews and other comic news on my tumblr if you want to stay super up-to-date. There's also an open ask/comment box over on my tumblr, and sometimes I put up polls or prompts that may go towards special side comics... so check it out and enjoy the new updates!

It's time for chapter 2 to start! It's a whopper of a chapter, all of 40 (41??) pages, but the more the merrier, and I hope you enjoy it!
Sometimes I forget to update the news section here for anyone who looks here for news or update schedules. I do, however, frequently (maybe too frequently) update my tumblr with near constant updates, art, and sometimes some sneak previews of what I'm working on. Be sure to give that a follow! You can find the link in the listed buttons below, but I'll also strive to update here more frequently when it comes to posting schedule and news.
This is a long chapter, as I stated above, and there's a post-chapter omake that Paula did that'll go up right after this finishes. The cover went up a day early (as of writing this, Monday) since I'm debating on starting the week with the new content pages instead of just the title page. I guess we'll see, won't we! anyone reading this from the future will know the answer before the version of me writing it ever will. What visions of the future you travelers hold!

Things look different around here, huh? This is what the delay there was about. With chapter 0 finished and chapter 1 ready to start, I thought it would be nice to not only get as much of a buffer as possible before starting again, to make sure posts kept flowing freely, but to settle into a name and website that fit the comic's identity to have celebration for going into chapter 1!
All the brand new custom art was an undertaking to do to overhaul the website, but I'm pleased with all of it, and couldn't be more pleased with the amazing work Paula did with the website. Oh, also, the name change? And our new logo? I hope you like it! The logo was done by both me and Paula, with the name change chosen to reflect the story's characters and tone a little more close to home. Take a look around if you like, because there's a brand new about page, a new character page, and all in all, the website itself is its own little home now. Confetti for all.
So chapter 1 is completely finished, and will be going up on an update schedule of Tuesdays and Fridays unless otherwise noted for special uploads. Chapter 2 is written, and I'm working away at the pages while also outlining future chapters with my partner Paula. I've got a lot of new art, illustrations, as well as usable assets and special brushes made just for the production of the comic. Those will definitely be shared on the patreon, but for now...
I hope you guys enjoy the new chapter!
