Woo! Psycho Games is finally beginning. If you haven’t been following Robot Souls Comics closely, now is the time to jump aboard. This new series is going to be filled with action, thrills, plot twists, and character development. I should know, I’m writing it. This prologue was pretty difficult for Dean, due in part to the rather incomplete nature of the script, which I am to blame for. It contains necessary story information, so it’s important that it got published, but the first chapter will definitely have higher quality. The script is already more thought-out, and Dean is quickly getting more used to the new style. We also may be getting someone with good handwriting to write in the word bubbles, which will probably also make the layouts more compact. It’s an exciting time for us, and hopefully an exciting time for you readers, too!

Hey. I’m tired. It was good to get this done, but also, as Jim said, very difficult. As you can see, the art of this new series is very different in style than what I’ve previously worked on (except for panel 4 of page 5; that was my pleasure panel). That’s mainly due to Jim’s artistic tastes. I know a lot of it looks kind of wonky, but it’s sure to improve. This is a very new thing for all of us. I hope you’ve enjoyed and understood this small taste of what is to come. As Jim said, we may bring on another partner. “Good handwriting” is an understatement, though; we’re employing the help of a calligrapher, so you’ll finally be able to say goodbye to my crappy handwriting. Please look forward to all that.
I guess the first thing I’m obligated to do here is apologize, or at least that’s what seems right to me, but am I really obligated to apologize to you? I guess I made a sort of contract with you, that I would draw ten pages a week and post them on Sunday. And now, I have gone and not done that.
However serious that sounds, though, I’m not actually sorry. At least, not that sorry. Y’see, I can explain.
Since last week, I’ve started working. This has made me busier than ever before. The only time I’ve had to draw comics is on the bus to and from work. That accounts for why there are only five pages. “Well then, explain why you posted on Monday, then.” You say. I, uh well . . . oh, look at the time. I’ve got to go.
