With the first page of sequential art finally posting, I just wanted to thank all the people who enjoy Earthguard who’ve stuck with it the last couple years while the issue was being crafted. I hope you all enjoy this issue as much as I enjoyed working on it. It was super fun to write, and Wati’s art never ceases to impress me.

Please make sure, if you have friends who also enjoy manga, to turn them on to the comic. I promise you won’t be disappointed. And no matter what I put into advertising, this is the internet, and word-of-mouth is what makes something popular. So we’ll keep putting out the best product we can, and I’m determined to get my first story arc finished if it takes the next 10 years to do it, but it’s really up to you guys how successful this is and what becomes of it in the long run.

Oh, and of course, I appreciate any criticism you can level at me. Let me know what you love, but more importantly, let me know what I can improve. I am not in the group of comic creator’s who spit bile and hatred at every dissenting opinion about my work. Constructive criticism is the cornerstone to improvement. I may not always agree with you, but I still want to know what you think :)

Thanks again! I love you guys!
