Darn! Almost made the post before midnight. A bit of a day late, but here is the real strip and not the April Fool’s sketch;P Enjoy!

Aaaaand… We’re back to strips again! First, I love drawing the black-footed weasels wrapping themselves around Daniel. Second, it still takes a few hours to do each of these strips but I really like the colors here!
This concludes our SHARD Dust side story! We will start next week with what happens next with David and Daniel! And, no, sadly, Miss Muffet is not rushing off to help David. She was yelling when Daniel shouted David’s name there in that last panel and doesn’t know anything is up.
This … isn’t my prettiest comic, but I am having trouble getting back into drawing them, oddly enough. This side of the story must be told, and I believe it is done for now, but I wanted to show that not everything is pleasant at Headquarters / Library.
You’ve heard Goldie refer to Alice as the Blue Boyscout (among other things). I’ve sketched Alice as just that for two reasons:
1.) I am swamped with Cub Scouts and life and have to take about a week long hiatus so there will be no art 2/27/20.
2.) Yep, I know that Boy Scouts/BSA has filed a Chapter 11. I know why, too. I came into Scouts later in life because I’m a girl. But now I am a mom and want my kids to enjoy Scouts so I had them join. I know that safety is “Number One” because we make it so (Yes, random Star Trek pun!) and I believe in what the organization has always tried to do. It is full of fun, learning, opportunity, character-growth, and promotes a safe environment for any and all youth. Their Youth Protection Training is mandatory for all adult leaders and is a free video online at my.scouting.org with points on barriers of abuse, how to keep scouts safe and fun, and more. Over the last 1.5 years, I have immersed myself in Scouting and support the organization. The Chapter 11 filing will not affect us much on a District or Pack/Troop level but we still see it in the news and know people have questions, concerns, and biases. Ask away. Ask any Scout leader at any level, and know that any worth their salt will answer readily and truthfully. May we all follow the Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best!
Sorry for the delay but I wanted to show that I am working on the Graphic Novelization of SHARDS while providing you current strips and SHARD Dust:) This is Pg. 21, Panel 3, where MISS MUFFET is still lurking in the shadows, waiting for DR. MUFFET to tell her she can come introduce herself to ALICE. It is a variation of the scene in the webcomic but the story itself has a lot of new content which I hope to show you bits and pieces of as things move along. HOPEFULLY things are moving along again on an agent/editor side! We’ll see:)
And, as far as the SHARD Dust strips, just know they are canon, and they are happening exactly when they appear in the flow of strips. David is still pinned by Daniel’s lion and now you know why Goldie didn’t sense him in the Library and why Miss Muffet is otherwise also occupied:)
I hope you don’t mind this little break in the Daniel/David story. I have been wanting to address these two particular points for some time and show that the characters are asking questions, too:
1.) Is every one of Mother Goose’s allies eager to give up their shard powers/return to their stories?
2.) What’s up with Dr. Muffet’s nickname for his daughter?
