Comic 746 -- A Crisis of Faith

Keeping the faith isn't always easy...

http://talesfromthevault.com/thunderstruck/comic746.html


... especially given everything Gail has been through lately.

The term "dark night of the soul" gets used somewhat ubiquitously these days to mean a rough patch of any sort, but the original meaning was more specific. It was first coined by the Christian mystic San Juan de la Cruz (Saint John of the Cross) in the poetry he wrote while imprisoned by the church for heresy. The meaning is a time of spiritual desolation, when all faith goes away, and the sense of God's presence that the mystic so long has found solace in disappears.

Gail's been due for one of these for a while. And there's no rule saying you only have to experience one dark night...

News Update: Website Hosting & Appearance

Hi everyone,

First off: you're probably seeing weird error messages on the Thunderstruck site. My hosting service seems to have been absorbed by another hosting service, and the migration is causing some glitches. Hopefully this will get sorted out soon. I'll keep you posted.

-----

In other news, anybody going to Denver Comic Con? If you're there on Sunday at 5:00, drop by Room 404! I'm on a panel called "Polishing You: Finding & Staying True to Your Unique Writing Style." It's been a long time since I've been to a Comic Con, so this should be fun!

Comic 745 -- Interrogating Saxony

Sorry for the delay! Here we go...

http://www.talesfromthevault.com/thunderstruck/comic745.html


Ouch. Sax has not been having a very good day.

Yes, I managed to mess things up a bit by not having all my plans sorted out when I went out of town, but we're back on track now.

Anyway, now that Gail's on the scene, I'm sure she'll be able to talk everyone down here and handle the situation through reason and peaceable diplomacy.

Technical Difficulties

Well... crap. I've encountered some technical difficulties, and I'm also out of town right now. The update is going to be a bit late.

Check back next week on the 6th. I should have it done by then.

Vigil's elite force...

... isn't having its best day.

Well, when your commando team doesn't succeed, what else are you supposed to do but call in the big guns?

Comic 743 -- Demonstration of Force

So if you saw this...

... would you mess around with the person wielding the sword? I sure wouldn't.

Got this month from a big vacation adventure throughout the British Isles and into Iceland. If you're remotely curious, you can see some of our photos and Candi's accounts of our journeys on her Facebook page.

My Interview on Blackbird Publishing

Hey look... some press! 

I talk with Blackbird's Jamie Ferguson about books, dragons, comics, characters, and my future projects.



Comic 742 -- With Human Vulnerabilities

More conflict!

http://www.talesfromthevault.com/thunderstruck/comic742.html


I love drawing fight scenes. I would not be so presumptuous as to say that I'm good at them, but I enjoy the attempt.

So here's Gail, trying to take the high road in a deadly fight. Does that make her foolish or heroic? Are the two qualities mutually exclusive? How long can she keep it up?

Guess we'll see...

Comic 740 -- Guests in San Quentin

Last day of 2017! Let's round off the year with an update, shall we?

http://talesfromthevault.com/thunderstruck/comic740.html


Hmm... "Backup Contingency?" Well, I doubt it will come to that. 

It's another year down, and I'm glad to have you all on board as Thunderstruck continues its strange and mythical course. See you in 2018, everyone!
