@Jorb: Since you've been away for 7 years, let me tell you that ever since I started Launch Base Zone (September 2009), I was forced into changing how I sourced the backgrounds for each panel. Up until that point, I was fortunate enough to come across background kits online, so I could sculpt my own scenes (and therefore had more freedom to write whatever I pleased). After Launch Base, however, I couldn't find kits, and only had backgrounds that others had extracted right from the games. Since the games move at a faster pace than this comic, it's a lot of backgrounds (close to 200 panels for each zone) I have to traverse to reach the end. I *have* been able to skip certain backgrounds, whenever it looks like one scene could directly transition to a different scene down the road. But for the most part, I'm averaging between 80-100 comics for each zone after Launch Base, so in a sense, the pace of the comic has slowed down.
