Sorry I have been lagging behind on my Ruby Nation reading, Neil. Thing have been a bit chaotic with moving to another town, trying to settle in et cetera. Until recently I mainly had internet access through my aunt's suuuuuuper slowwwwww laptop, so involvement in any of my old online hideouts has been difficult to keep up.
But I just binged all the recent comics. I enjoy what's going on with Kaluga and Elise. I wonder what you're going to do with Kaluga. I don't think the growth on his face being untreatable with nanotechnology is problematic, it makes sense to me.
Thank you very much for the comments Mormel. Unfortunately I wasn't able to upload a new comic this weekend due to RL Stuff, but your support is always appreciated.
And I'm glad you can accept that nanomachines couldn't remove Kaluga's face tumor (despite all the other things they do in the universe). Nanotechnology in the Rubyverse is in no way, shape, or form designed with cosmetic appearances and social acceptability in mind; that's kind of the whole point of the series, come to think of it.
I say agin: I'm really enjoying the character of Kaluga, I sympathize with him. But I'm especially enjoying him as an antagonist/villain, because of the potential for (inner) conflict that his history with Elise brings to the story.
I was wondering, do you plan the storylines ahead in detail for a certain number of chapters, or is there a stronger element of spontaneity where you go with last-minute edits before uploading a page?
Thanks again Mormel! I have an idea of where the story's headed for the next two hundred or so pages, but I only script one page ahead to allow for flexibility. I like to have the master plan in my head so i know where I'm going, but not be completely beholden to it in terms of hard copy documents.
