When I first started with Daedalus Mechanics, I’m sure you noticed it had a different ring, and in the middle there it had some laughs – but when I started I knew that the story was going to have to get dark. As it progressed, even as I really think some of these are the most beautiful panels I’ve done in a few stories, I realized that there was going to be at least one really horribly dark page… and so this is it.

I almost spread Icarus flying into the sun and Daedalus stepping from the tower over two pages, but I realized I didn’t want to make a full week of sad. I’m not saying that there isn’t some sadness left to wring out of this story, but things lighten up from here. Promise.
