You're eating an apple. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a regular red apple. You bite into it, it tastes fresh and crisp. Really sweet. You chew it, swallow it, and think nothing of it.

Hey, dudes.
Sorry about the lack of activity. January has not been a good month, but things should be back to normal, hopefully.
Page 6 is up. I’ve also gone back and color-corrected the other pages so that it’s a little more uniform.

Go check out the corrected pages here http://everskywardcomic.tumblr.com/

It came out a lot darker when I saved it, not sure why. Sorry!
