One of my favorite Peter Lorre quotes from "Arsenic and Old Lace." I've got to try and watch it this year on Halloween - it used to be my tradition.
As to where I've been, 2015 has been tough, with lots of family emergencies and crises. As I mentioned at the start of this series, I was (as opposed to "When Hadrons Collide") going to take things at a slower pace and try to pay attention to the art and story. What I did not anticipate was the shear volume of impediments I have to climb over every week to keep on track, and so not only have a missed a bunch of bi-weekly updates, I havn't been able to get anything in color since August.
Hopefully that will begin to change soon. Meanwhile I hope you are enjoying the story so far (let me know, wouldya?) and keep coming back. Things start to get more interesting soon.
