Opening up the story and not ditching the readers when things were just heating up are very satisfying feelings that I hope to share with you through the existence of this chapter. Being able to read the finished chapter after making final changes and adjustments was something I've been waiting for ever since we conceived it, though that's a given. I'm very excited to see how the readers will react to the new additions this chapter will bring:)
Production on the chapter itself started right after January 20, right after Chapter 7 was published. So why did it take so long for this chapter to be created? Well, mostly general laziness in this had played a factor in this long production cycle. However, I had also experienced major burnout after completing the previous chapter. I wasn't able to draw for a while, which heavily affected the pace at which pages were made. Only two pages were produced from the time between February 19, to sometime in March. I lost contact with Sheepy for about 4 months, which at the time, indefinitely postponed the production of Panckershack. After reaching out to him in July, we immediately jumped into action, producing pages nonstop from July 8, to now. So the chapter actually took around of month of work. Pages have been produced every day (more or less), with personal events affecting the pace of production albeit not significantly.
