He gets knocked down, but he gets up again… I hope.

Just a quick catch up for the newcomers. Also, this was originally going to be a print comic, so you need to make sure everyone knows what’s going on.
I should also mention this isn’t me going on some political rant about how the rich like to walk all over the poor and such. This comic isn’t about that, I just needed a setting. I didn’t even realise that it could be seen like that until I saw this page. However, that is how Dae feels. Understandable, after living a life where you barely have anything to eat while others live in comfort. You’d resent them too, I’m sure.
I like this cover, it’s adorable.
So, we begin chapter two. What do we have in store for you guys? Find out on Friday.
So today is the day we upload the last page of the first chapter of Domain Tnemrot. Hooray.
I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I mean, there might be a hole in the story I missed and I didn’t do much in the way of character development, but I did get everyone introduced and managed to set up the scene so you guys know what you’re in for. The characters will grow and change, plus we may leave Tnemrot in the future to have adventures elsewhere, but this chapter pretty much represents what the series is about. And I hope you’ll stick around to see what happens.
The chapter went through some changes. It’s a lot more decompressed than my version, which was about 30 pages long, but Tatiana was right about that. It was pretty rushed without an occasional break, since I was writing for an American comic rather than a manga and I was still a little fresh to the whole thing, so I couldn’t expand my writing the way I wanted to. It’s why I haven’t tried to write a novel yet, I keep summarising too much. But she did basically get it down exactly as I envisioned. Well, maybe not her specific style, but the camera, the looks of the characters, their expressions and actions is pretty much how I saw it in my head. And she did a fantastic job crafting it. A special thanks to her for coming on board.
I can’t wait to show you guys what comes next.
And so we reach the end of chapter one. Hooray.
