There might be one or two more of these before we get to the next full issue--I use these info pages to cover characters we won't get time to fully explore in the book, background-wise, while other characters--like Dr. Solomon Thoth and Zed--will have their stories fully told in upcoming issues. Hope you enjoy them and find them informative--little clues and story bits are everywhere, even in these info entries.

You're diabolical.
Now I have to go back through and try to figure out who has been his unsuspecting puppet all along...

Perhaps the question is who is manipulating HIM.

Remember, there are still a few unanswered questions I hope readers ponder--who stole the Coda Crystal, for example? What did Ainsley do with the wreckage of the Dream Needle? Even things folks may have overlooked, such as the several moments we spent with Tamsen, a random citizen of Freemantle? Sure, I made all this stuff up but I'm not making it up as I go's all planned, it all has a purpose. As Zed told Inferno awhile back, 'the future has been written, every day is simply the turning of a page' or something along those lines. There's a lot going on between the lines and slightly off-panel, but all will come to the light soon.

*And I should add that the future is not literally 'written', as I store everything in my head. Only certain covers are done far in advance--the cover of this issue (Millie winking at us from her casket) was done around January of '14.

Yeah there is plenty of stuff I never bothered asking about.
I even spent a few seconds trying to come up with anagrams of tamsen's name but didn't come up with anything and gave up.

Tamsen's name is just one of my favorite names for a female (along with 'Emily' and 'Millicent', of course). She'll pop up again before it's all over. It's good that you notice things like names, several of the characters' names have double meaning. A quick note for you and anyone else reading: change of plans, The Ill # 14.1 will come out at a future unspecified date, simply because I'm not going to have time to do both issues and drop them at once, and otherwise you guys would have to wait TWO months for the follow-up to The Ill # 18, and that's just unacceptable. So we'll get The Ill #18, then The Ill #0, THEN The Ill # 19. The Ill #18 goes up sometime around mid-January, but if all goes as planned tomorrow (Tyr's Day) I will have a special Xmas gift for you all tomorrow night.
