Editing LK while reading Monster

I took a week off from drawing Lumia's Kingdom to do some important editing. The last few comics were all re-written on the fly after much consideration, but it seems to have really mucked up a lot of what I had originally written in the coming comics. Along the way, I wanted to experiment with the idea of convergence of various plots into one grand event. I've had the idea for a while, but I think it's really picking up steam since my girlfriend loaned me her copies of Naoki Urasawa's Monster.

Monster is quite intriguing; there are so many characters with very well developed plots and backgrounds that are all linked because of one singular person. Though Dr. Tenma is the main character of the plot, he is sometimes absent for most of an entire volume. Nevertheless, the story is still very gripping.

It's really inspiring me to try and push the idea of convergence into the next batch of LK scripts. Hopefully, I can pull it off.
