Cienan wants to stay on schedule. You can see Mathilde’s reaction to the proposed agenda when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
I have some other news and it’s both dreadful and incredible at the same time. Last week I was diagnosed with stage 1 bile duct cancer. I am incredibly fortunate that they caught it so early. This means I have a very good chance of surviving. Normally, this cancer is deadly because they don’t catch it until stage 3 or 4. It’s like winning the worst lottery I can imagine. As a PhD friend of mine said, I’m one lucky son of a bitch.
I will be having surgery later this month and then several rounds of chemo next year. If all goes well, the doctors will be able to remove the cancer entirely and the chemo will catch anything floating in my system. I intend to keep writing the scripts for Snow by Night and making Julie and Steph do all the heavily lifting.
The story is done, so if things go down hill in a hurry I’ll just post the summary of what is to come. However, that shouldn’t be necessary. I’m hopeful that the surgery will be successful.
Plan A doesn’t work, so Mathilde tries a different kind of attack. “First the sugar, then the spice?” Cienan seems unfazed, but Mathilde’s got one more angle to try on the next page. To see her last-ditch effort, vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
Mathilde puts the moves on Cienan to secure her secrets with one very tempting offer. For all their talk of cleverness on the last page, is this what they were both expecting? Mathilde sneaks a peek on the next page to see how her plan is working, and you can too when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
Mathilde dresses for the kill when she visits Cienan. Yet he seems unconcerned. What does Mathilde have planned? Vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics and see for yourself!
Steph and I are back from Indigenous ComicCon. What a great show! About 1,000 people attended, which is pretty good for a first-year con. Things went very smoothly. Lee Francis did an amazing job organizing it. I wanted to go to ALL the panels. They were that good. One of my favorite was run by Jonathan Joss, who is the voice of John Redcorn on King of the Hill and plays Ken Hotate on Parks & Rec. I’m looking forward to going back next year!
On a humorous side note, the cramp in my calf muscle was so bad that TSA picked it up on their scanner and had to pat down my leg every time I went through security. One of them even commented, “Man, that’s a serious cramp.” It’s doing much better today. It’s almost gone. Just a bit more stretching.
Mathilde realizes the source of her problem and makes plans to solve it. To see a sneak peek of her plan in action, vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
Indigenous Comic Con is wrapping up and Eric and Steph should be returning home tonight! Eric can update you on the great time they had when we post our next page on Wednesday.

Oh no! Fraud and malfeasance! The threat is in the air. Hanging there. Waiting to fall like a sword. Mathilde is not one to take that lying down. She breaks out her best weapon which you can see when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
I went to the doctor this morning. It is indeed a severe muscle cramp from overuse. I guess I shouldn’t have carried the sleeping 6-year-old from Cinderella’s Castle all the way back to the hotel at Disney then sit in a cramped airplane then go back to my running regimen at the gym. The leg is feeling much better. I need to stretch it, roll it, and take some Ibuprofen.
I wish over-the-counter pain medication was more descriptive for what it actually does. I get generics and they’re all labeled as “pain relief.” Well, what kind of pain? That matters! The answer is to look for the active ingredient. Here’s my handy cheat sheet. There are some overlap, but this works well for me.
- Ibuprofen – muscle pain and cramps
- Naproxen Sodium – swelling and inflammation
- Acetaminophen – headaches and fevers
Indigenous ComicCon is coming this weekend! You really should attend if you can. Or grab their virtual pass! Steph and I are going as Sponsors! I’ll be taking my camera and a ton of pictures. It’s going to be a great show.
