Welcome back, to everyone who has stuck with this comic for so long. And welcome to any new readers who are just discovering this long-running project. I’m so glad to be back in the thick of it with Trane and Allumette, and I believe this new chapter will be worth the wait!

I put together an annotated series recap that’s still a fairly substantial post, but for those of you who don’t have the time to re-read all eight previous chapters, it’s there. And to get the new chapter rolling, I’ll be dropping new pages Wed/Thu/Fri this week.
