Are you wondering what all of this ‘benjamin being attacked by letters’ was all about?
I doubt it, but if you look below you’ll find that the last page pulls a Clarissa and explains it all:

It takes me far longer than you would think—I can draw, but it’s difficult—and that’s totally fine, because I love the fuck out of doing it. I’ve been getting better as time goes on, and can easily finish things in one night that used to take me two or three.
The Wizard’s Lesson is a great example of this, and I have a page already uploaded and ready to post on Thursday. I start another tonight and may even have it ready for the same post.
