Honestly, everything that comes after is probably going to be just as dense - I'm working on arcs now for Mancers, Daylighters, and [redacted] that will bring us into March or April of 2015, and that's when things are going to pivot in a major way.

Last time we saw him he was wallowing quite a bit. I'm not sure if he's feeling better or not but he's definitely staying out of the limelight.

I mean you're not wrong
Writing Julie Ann in a "serious" superhero story (instead of the Zeppelin slapstick stuff or the Nonfiction piece) and as a viewpoint character has been a source of absolutely joy for me.

I'm really curious what you'll think of Rainshade after this Daylighters arc, and after the Pulse War in general.
