In between regular postings of This EMPIRE are “yesteryear” strips.  These segments will hopefully provide some interesting vignettes into Niall and Jamal past.

Related Strips:  Yesteryear 

Great googly moogly it has been one year since the launch of “This EMPIRE.” Pardon another delay in wrapping the latest story arc.  Parallel worlds / multiverse (or meta-universe, metaverse) calamities have diverted my attention from the comic.  Last week was the first of sketches featuring yesteryear’s vignettes of Jamal & Niall when they were children.

Some of these sketches comprise of clips from my previous comic “The Mysterious Cellar Dweller,” which I did during my days at university.  It is still remains to be seen how much their previous story plays where they are today. The guys have been with me for a while you so will probably see odd character designs from time to time from the sketches.

Oh, wait what was The Mysterious Cellar Dweller, well that story will unfold during the course of This EMPIRE.

This has been an interesting learning experience, taking a lot lumps along the way. Hopefully things are getting better with each comic. Once again pardon the delay.  Thank you for reading.
