Hey all!! The Surgeon #5 is in progress, and going a little more slowly than our planned completion date of June, but Omar is currently drawing page 17 of 22, and Hedwin is working on some absolutely stunning colors!! Here are some sneak peeks (SPOILERS POTENTIALLY, SO DON'T LOOK IF YOU DON'T WANT 'EM)

Hedwin says he should be done mid-July, so we hope to send stuff immediately off to printers and get you these books in late July or August!!! More progress to come!!
