Imagine trying to get Frank into a hospital gown. That’s why he’s not in one.

I worked as a CNA for a long time. We had an ex-marine as a patient for a few months. He was in bad shape from, IIRC, a car accident, and managed to break one of the nurse’s arms over the bed rail. I don’t think he ultimately survived his injuries, but it’s been so long that I can’t remember. I also really hated my job. 0/10, would not work as a CNA again. My point is that if someone like Frank rolled in and demanded his clothing back, the only real answer is, “yes, sir.”

If you are interested in why this comic took so long, or just want to see some sketch-work and alternate lines for the characters, check out the Making Of post over on our Ramen Empire Patreon.

This comic is late, partly because it is huge (I should have just cut it in two, but I only realized that when it was days late and mostly done), and partly because we are also working on Kickstarter fulfillment, which we are targeting to have finished by December. The Kickstarter page will update soon(tm) with information about what’s going on there, and we’ll also be sending out fulfillment surveys just as soon as I’ve got my ducks in a row on on the past three pages of the comic book.

There’s also some Patreon art we’re very, very behind on.

The other reason this is late is that, frankly, the news is taking its toll on us and that makes it really hard to go do creative things.

So, this was supposed to be for Monday. We missed that mark, because drawing cars sucks. Also long perspective shots are time consuming to get right. We’re obviously still not done, because this isn’t colored — but once we are, I’ll swap out the images.

Also, we hit our Kickstarter goal over on Thieves Can’t! Woo!

 

Edit: The upload had mangled the image before. Should be fixed now.

Edit 3 – The search for Edit 2: Colors are uploaded. Who wants to bet we miss our Monday update next week because of this? 🙁
