Such a simple idea I'm amazed it hasn't been done before - very nice job.
Thanks for the positive feedback. Working on more pages... going to take this issue up to the end of the Collaborator.
+1 excellent work.

Hoy! This is great!
(not that I was proofreading everything, but that should be "...storms swallow up ships..." in the first panel of cover)
This is awesome!
Just added page 12.
I've actually stopped production on this to protest the MASSIVE nerf to rogue dps in Update 11 with the new fortification.
This affect rogues MUCH more than ANY other class.
People will say it affects all classes, because it affects criticals.
Guess what, it affects the criticals of rogues (just like every other class) and IN ADDITION, it affects their sneak attack damage - THEIR MAIN SOURCE OF DAMAGE.
That's basically the equivalent of giving raid bosses immunity to 50-75% of spells, in the case of arcanes.... or reducing barbs and other melees STR by 50%.
And, instead of something useful for rogues in enhancements - like fortification bypass - we got a wand/scroll boost.
So... until the situation is fixed - the storyline in the comic WAS about a rogue - I will not be doing anymore work on this comic.
Thanks for all the encouragement and support. I really enjoyed making it, but I have to make this issue know somehow.
Sorry to disappoint you, but sneak attack should not be your main source of damage as a rogue, but a nice perk. First off, we are the only class with access to opportunist. Second, Make sure you are breaking DR. Third, if you are dex based, make sure to have some strength to add to your base damage. Fourth, Bane weapons, DR Breakers, and elemental/alignment bursts should all be added to your collection.
If you are dexterity based, You need to find these bane weapons and burst weapons the most. If you are strength based, you should still be doing great base damage. If you are a two handed weapon fighter, you will be doing the most base damage of all.
The only thing you are doing is hurting your fans in this protest.

I maximize my strengths and buy bane weapons for my weaknesses.
All of my capped toons are STR based and all of them are DPS toons... not flavor builds. Most of their damage comes sneak attack - 17d6 + 12.
If you're a dps rogue (not a flavor build like mechanic or acrobat), then the majority of your damage SHOULD be sneak attack. If not, you've built it wrong.
And when the majority of your damage is nerfed in epic raids, it makes a HUGE difference in what you bring to the raid.
And so, my protest continues. With the nerfs to rogues, I just don't have the heart to continue the story about a rogue...
And, regardless, any time an artist we admire decides to take a stand on something, it reflects poorly on we as fans to not respect that. If you and I need to continue this debate, let's take it to PMs out of respect for the OP.
