The interrogation continues. Dapes is getting closer to piecing together exactly what Luna is up to. How long will Rusty be able to tolerate the pain? Will he crack, or will he splinter?

Title Page: Arcanum

helm-6-5.jpg

Not much of an update this week but I felt this would be a good spot to insert our title page for the second book (Chapters 6-10), similar to what we did here. The Red Spire is where we'll be spending the next few pages. At least one more surprise awaits.

Surprise! 

Next week, we zip across to another scene taking place on the western edge of the Midlands (you can find the Map of the Midlands at the bottom of this page). Spoiler alert -- more blood awaits us.

Nothing like curling up in front of a fire with a nice cup of hot tea. Here's introducing Master Galen and Master Virgil (who may not be just any Master, apparently). Tune in next week to find out more. ;)

Also, a random question for readers -- what are you most interested in seeing and learning more about in HELM? I have multiple concepts for future story arcs and rough outlines for several issues/books; however, I'm about a third of the way into writing the script for HELM #7 and tend to leave the page-by-page details off until I begin writing a new chapter. I'd love to get opinions on what readers want more of, so it can help inform some of the details in upcoming pages in #7 and beyond.

Impeccable penmanship, wouldn't you say? Well, that's Mr. Quint for you.

That's right... another one of *these* pages. Similar to the first page of the first chapter of the first book. Just setting the stage for what's about to come. :)

If you'd like to read the full text of the journal entry here, you can check it out by downloading the entire Chapter 6 script which is available on our Patreon here. You can also find completed pages (up to 10 so far) from Chapter 6 there, as well.

Aaaanddd.... we're finally back! 

At least a couple things have changed since we went on hiatus last year...

1. HELM Book #1: Harbinger is available for sale as single issues and as a collected trade paperback volume (available September 18, 2018). Visit your favorite comic/book retailer, order print copies of HELM on Amazon, or find us on Comixology if you want to add this series to your digital library.

2. We're posting new pages at a pace of 1 page a week. I'd love to do more but HELM can be an expensive hobby so unless we garner enough support (and please show your support for us on Patreon), we'll be limited to posting 1 page every Tuesday.

3. If you don't want to wait a week for an update, you can stay up to date on our latest progress (concepts, sketches, scripts, in progress and final pages) every week by pledging on Patreon. You can even read the entire Chapter 6 script now... before any of the pages are posted. :)

If you're a new reader (or just want a refresher), I recommend scrolling through our About page before you get started.
