Bad bogie derails Kitty Clysm

Yep, as reported on pHantacea on pHacebook a couple of weeks ago the release date for “Cataclysm Catalyst”, the second graphic novel under the Phantacea Revisited byline, has been pushed back rather rudely.

It isn’t a total train wreck. It just looks like one.

Problem seems to be high density colour. And if anyone knows how to correct it, please advise forthwith.

I’m still hopeful it’ll be ready by Beltane Day 2014 (the morning after Walpurgisnacht, the start of Witch Week). That would make it Mayday — the First of May 2014 for those not up on howsoever pagan celebrations.
