Howdy, fellow Draconiacs! RazorFox here. So close, and yet, so far. Will Briella find a way to punch through the ceiling? Or will Rula and her crew finally dash Briella’s dreams of escape? Those of you looking for a soundtrack for this page can pull up “The Pretender” by Foo Fighters. Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been floating the purely hypothetical idea of the possibility of a limited-edition single-character run of Draconia Chronicles poseable action figures. First, thanks to your input, you chose Dragons over Tigers. Then, you nominated a slate of candidates. And now, you’ve voted. Things were running pretty tight at the top, but the winner is the Lady of the Lightning herself, Elektra! Briella gave her a solid challenge, but Elektra prevailed. Thanks so much for all your votes! Now, the question becomes as to whether these action figures will ever become anything more than simply hypothetical. Will they? We’ll see. Stay tuned for details. On another note, I have finally scripted all the way to the end of the current chapter! The finale is near, and the endgame has begun. And with that, I come to the realization that I’m one exhausted artist, and I could really use a break from doing the comic for a few weeks. I did the same thing between chapters last summer, and for the first time in the series’ history, I decided to open the door to guest comics. The response was huge! Thus, I decided to make it an annual event. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to announce the return of the Draconia Chronicles Annual for 2012! If you’re artistically inclined and wish to submit comics or pin-up art based in the Draconia Chronicles universe, this is your chance to do it! There’s no actual pay involved, but if you’ve got a webcomic of your own, or an online art gallery somewhere, I’ll plug it heavily, and you’ll also score a free copy of the forthcoming 2013 Draconia Chronicles Calendar! If you’re interested–and I know you are!–and you need submission guidelines and deadlines, shoot me an Email. Last year’s submissions were so epic, that I eagerly look forward to see what you all come up with this year. Get on it, my fellow Draconiacs! And with that, I, too, will get on it for page 289. Has Briella’s lucky streak drawn to a close? Stay tuned. Take care, my fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading! =RazorFox.
