There might need to be a few weeks off before I post the next page. I’ve spent all my comics time this week rebuilding my other comics site from scratch after continued malware incidents, and the job isn’t done yet. I want to get that done before I can justify inking and colouring the next scene of Phobos and Deimos. The good news is, this rebuild is an excellent excuse to update some comics I’ve had sitting in my back pocket that I haven’t bothered to post online, so at least until I run out of THOSE, I’m going to post a new page every Sunday on the other site. With any luck, I might even be able to swing an overlap period where I’ve got two webcomics updating at once.

Panel 1: Srinivasa: "You're a true believer, though." Maida: "Yeah. I am."
Panel 2: Maida: "It's... Life has to be for something. My life has to be for something. I can't believe the universe both hurts and is meaningless. Is that a problem?"
Panel 3: Srinivasa, throwing up his hands: "No! I am not a broodin teen looking for arguments at every turn." Maida: "Ha."
Panel 4: Srinivasa: "I'm just a bored grad student at a provincial university who's lookin for excuses not to mark papers."
Panel 5: Maida, looking down: "Well, it's not like I'm a very good Muslim. My Dad wanted us to find our own way to Islam, and I never had any interest before he died."
Panel 6: Maida: "Now I have to figure it all out on my own. At this rate I'll be lucky to make it through judgement day at all."
Panel 7: Srinivasa: "Oh, pshaw! You're young. You have a lifetime of sinnin still ahead of you." Maida, putting her head in her hands: "Brilliant."
