There are always peaks and valleys; the first bunch of Rising Star issues were
really establishing the rules and who some of the characters are; the fact that
the murders are going on, the possible motive, and introducing a bunch of
suspects.

Now all that pipe has been laid, and I can start to really move the arc of the
story forward, do more in present-tense than in flashback. That's kind of
where the fun really kicks in.
