  1. Excited to see this setting in motion! <3

  2. Oooh, Talita has had some friends/friendly coworkers not on tumblr. It looks like Calcery is leaving the story but I hope we’ll see some more about them!

  3. LETS GO! I am frothing at the mouth finally getting to see this comic! I can’t wait to get my grubby little gremlin hands on a physical copy eventually. Right off the bat the machinery looks fantastic. I can’t get over how grounded everything always feels when reading the lore from your blog. Everything from the sophonts and their cultures/biology to the science that makes up this universe is so interesting. What a treat, getting to read this.

  4. LET’S GO!! Man I remember seeing the sketch for this page teased ages back. How time flies!

  5. I cant wait to buy the book and read it. This is the kind of art that needs to be poured over by the eye. <3

  6. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA lets GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the scale of this image is absolutely terrifying

    1. The launch loop is 80 kilometers tall and vanishes over the horizon because it’s 2600 kilometers long :^)
