I was originally going to make this another twelve-panel comic to finish off the week, as there will be no update tomorrow, but the eighth panel here seemed like such an upbeat and badass ending that I decided to have the last comic before Christmas be one filled with hope, albeit full of rain, blood and violence.
Hope can be metal.
I'm on my way to a huge family gathering today and will be gone most of the weekend. Unless otherwise noted the comic ought to resume normally on Monday.
That's all from me for now.
