New BodyWorld pages

uploaded to the main site. Next week this stack of pages moves to a "Chapter Three Thus Far" section in the archives and a new stack will begin on the main site.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. What's with the numbered squares that appear throughout the story?
A. Those correspond to the map grid, establishing where the scene takes place.

Q. I missed some pages... Where can I go back to read previous entries?
A. In the archives section, the brown square to the left of the comic. You can read it from the beginning by starting at the prelude and clicking the "continue reading..." link at the bottom of each page.

Q. What's a "page?" Why do you say "new BodyWorld pages" when it's a bunch of panels?
A. I draw it as 4-tier (12-panel) pages and I upload 4,5, or 6 new pages every Tuesday, depending on where I think a good stopping point is. Further in the story the panels will get larger, moving to a 3-tier page, but that's not for a while.

Q. How do you color this?
A. Please see my old post on the meathaus blog.
