This has been a story about convergence and just about everything finally comes together on this page. All the threads get tangled up over the next couple of pages and the rest of the story will be spent unraveling them.

Here,of course, we have monster meeting robot, so it seems as good a time as any to give a shoutout to Monster and Robot Industries, three talented cartoonists to whom the entire tone of this story owes a debt.
Not incidentally, Monster and Robot's own Edward J. Grug III has begun serialization (at his LiveJournal) of a story written by my friend Alexander Danner - author, poet, cartoonist. It's called "Bring Your Daughter to Work Day" and I've been looking forward to this collaboration for some time. Alexander and I are also working together on a story which will eventually run right here on this blog.

So how's that for convergence, anyway?

Go on, try to make some sense of what's going on here without the benefit of the previous pages. I DARE YOU!!

For those of you who are interested, I've cobbled together a rough "story so far..." page at my site. I just threw everything in as is so some of the pages don't line up and the images aren't scaled down at all - which makes it a little tall for most browsers.
As I get nearer to completion I'll try and tighten up the presentation a bit, but this gives you sort of an idea of the overall scope.

I'm only partly sure what Derik is up to lately with his comic Things Change, but I know I like it. Check out the trick he pulls over the last couple of pages of the "Tiresias" chapter.
