Pages 99 - 100
The fact that this section ends on page 100 is coincidental, but does give it sense of being nicely bundled. I’ve incorporated music into comics before (with the help of others), but this is the first time I’ve ever attempted writing my own composition. I can’t really read music (especially with my deteriorating vision), and I only just started teaching myself the piano a few years ago. The music here is a bit difficult for me to play, but give me a few weeks practice, and I could do it. I’ve always had some unformed notions of combining comics and music, but haven’t figured out a way that isn’t clunky or awkwardly contrived.

Every time I upload a page of comics, it's like I drop a carefully and painstakingly crafted jewel into a great dark well and watch it sink into the murky water without a trace or ripple. Anyway, here's another one. Blup, blup, blup. http://chromefetus.thecomicseries.com/comics/165/

For a multitude of reasons too lengthy to list here, COCHLEA & EUSTACHIA is no longer a full color comic. I posted a general inquiry on Facebook asking readers for their opinions on a black & white C&E comic. Although there were some people who expressed a preference for color, most seemed to understand my reasoning for this shift.
Rather than going to grey, I’ve opted for a soft bluish tone, which I think matches the mood of the comic. I’m not a very good colorist, and I think this shift does draw more attention to my strength, which is nit-picky linework. It may take time, but I hope readers get used to this change.
