But work isn't the only reason it took so long (and ye gods did it take long). It's one of the more visually dense in a while, and the unfamiliarty of the characters slows me right down. Then there's the fact that we were still writing it and finishing character designs right down to the wire. Didn't help.
Anyway, I've been staring at this thing far too long, and I don't know if it makes sense anymore. Out to the world it goes.
