Page 1: issues 5 (On the Run) and Special 1 (Sysyphus Part 1)

And here we go.  The real beginning to see if I can do two issues in one month.  How will I fare?
Top page: I was inspired by hearing of those jerks that will purposely beat homeless people, usually to death.  The only thing separating them from most people is that life has treated them much rougher.  There but for the grace of God and family go I.  If it weren't for my uncle letting me live in his art studio in his back yard, I would be in the same boat.
Bottom page: Does that tendril look familiar to you?  It's Shal'tatal, who appeared in one of the panels in issue 1.  I liked the design and had to use the character again.  It also seems that said character is playing Taasen, the variation on chess created by Jennifer Diane Reitz for her comic Unicorn Jelly.  She may be a bit controversial in the things she says and does, but I maintain that Unicorn Jelly is a great comic.
Tomorrow: How do the two guys respond?  Who is Shal'tatal playing against?
