Greetings, loyal readers of The Fourth, and welcome to… what must be the most boring page ever for you. We apologize! This story is designed to let new readers jump in, so we’ll be retreading a bit of familiar ground. But we’ve got some excellent new stuff planned- even some stuff quite soon that I think you guys will love, and may have wanted to see but thought we’d never show!

The comic is also going to be following, subtly, a bit of a different structure for this prequel. Since this story is intended to ultimately be read as a cohesive package, we’ll be concentrating less on the “update” mindset of making sure each page has a punchline. Jokes will be scattered about more organically, although we’ll try to make sure there’s not a page break between a set-up and payoff or anything.

Have a great weekend!
