Three days in a row with "no paste-ins" allowed on a second or third pass through the post, which is ominous indeed. If this keeps up all week, I may indeed have to bug Hiveworks about this crap.
Meanwhile, a familiar face (or helmet) in the last panel, as we saw this fella early on in Empowered vol. 9. (Note that inserting a link into the text doesn't seem to trigger the "paste-in denial" software effect.)
Today’s Patreon update: Originally done as a means of scratching out
more worktime to complete the long-gestating Empowered vol. 12,
I've switched over to a Monday/ Wednesday/ Friday Patreon posting schedule that
won't feature the fixed content format I previously used. So, who knows what
today's post might feature? Could be Life Drawing or Distressed
Damsels content (both of which are featured at least three times per
month), or something in the Work Stages, Vintage Con Sketches or Design
departments, or possibly something entirely new. Golly!
