IN AT THE DEEP END - 28 of 27

Okay, not trying to fool you here - afraid this week the image doesn't have an interesting hidden page attached.

I'd been considering taking a page break between stories as I wanted to catch up on time I lost over Easter, but I really wanted to give you something reasonably interesting to look at. Unfortunately, events have conspired against me, so I got nothing. Except this, which is a panel from the next story, which will start next week.

Sorry. :(

But meanwhile, you might like to take a look at ...
Spiderforest Comic of the Week: Twilight Lady by Blake Chen.

Due to afforesaid events, I haven't had time to take a proper look at this, but the premise sounds interesting so I'm going to make time for it soon. Here's Blake's synopsis:

"In demonic circles, she is spoken of in hushed whispers ... and known only as the Nameless Lady in the Hood. For eons she wandered the realms of the living and dead, craving solitude, yet compelled to aid any wronged who sought justice ... or vengeance.
Two decades ago, this immortal soul found itself born into an earthly body under mysterious circumstances.
Having previously attained near god-like ability and status (worshipped by some, feared by others), the Lady had no desire to endure the limits of being mere flesh and blood. So she created Jen, a separate mind within her own ... to experience life in a physical body whenever she didn't want to ... which was most of the time.
Only Jen turned out stronger than her creator imagined, at times becoming the dominant personality in their shared existence. To prevent losing herself completely, the Lady began surfacing whenever Jen was "asleep". A necessary compromise.
Now a young adult, Jen still has no inkling of the being that dwells within. A budding musician, she just wants to find her place in the world.
But there are those who know of the Nameless Lady in the Hood. Friends, enemies, and those who seek her aid ..."

Blake recommends the story arc 'The Indwellers' as a good jumping in point.
