Heya Mahous, Cube here!

I realized I haven't made a proper post here since I took over art duties, so this seemed like a good time!!

First off, if you're curious about who these losers are that Undine's currently interacting with, they're crossover characters from one of my other comics, Kiwi Blitz!

You certainly don't need to go back and read KB for the sake of this lil' cameo, but if you happen to be curious about my earlier work, KB can be started over here! Like SD, it's all available online for free. It's more of a goofy near-future scifi adventure, but obviously I write and draw both so there's a lot of stylistic similarities if you like this one!

And yes, these are Alternate Universe versions of the characters, so don't worry about any kind of nonexistent shared continuity ;0

And meanwhile, thank you so much for your patience and understanding as I've learned to draw this comic! A lot has happened since I took over art duties, like moving back home from Japan and switching to full-time comicking, and I think the art's made pretty big improvements since I first came on! Oskar had some big artistic shoes to fill, but I'm doing my best not to disappoint! :0 I've certainly learned a ton in the process, and I hope to keep improving and make SD really impressive to look at as time goes on.

But on that note, I better get back to tomorrow's page work! Thank you so much again for reading my magical girl comic. I'm really excited to share it all with you guys!!

Heya Guys, Mary Cagle here, aka Sleepless Domain's writer.

First off, this is probably going to be a bit of a hefty post, so let's start with the TLDR version:

Chapter 3 of Sleepless Domain will resume on December first, And will drawn and colored by me.

Up to this point, Sleepless Domain has been a collaborative effort between myself and the super talented Oskar Vega. Unfortunately, Oskar's moving on to other full-time illustration and comics work, and thus very understandbly won't be able to continue as the artist of Sleepless Domain. I know many of you are here for Oskar's stellar art, and his absence will definitely be felt.

But I promise to do my best to bring you a beautiful comic in my own way. If you're unfamiliar with my art, you can check out my Art Blog or either of my other comics (Kiwi Blitz and Let's Speak English) to get an idea!

Of course, drawing three comics is going to be a challenge, especially since I'm still working as a full-time English teacher in Japan until spring next year.  That's why we'll be taking this one-month hiatus until the beginning of December, to make sure I have time to get the art right and build a buffer. I have a lot of big plans for SD, and I really want to make sure I can execute it to the best of my ability.

Thank you so much to everyone who's read the comic so far, and thank you to Oskar for bringing the first two chapters to life! I promise this is just the beginning of the story.

And just to clarify; the main character is, indeed, Undine ;0 See you magical kids in Chapter 3!

Greetings, Everyone!

Now that the comic's really picking up speed, it seemed like a good time for an inaugural blog post.

First off, I'm Mary Cagle, and I'm the writer of this comic! It's always been one of my aspirations to do a magial girl story, and I'm really excited to share this one with you! Let's just say I have big plans, and we already know where the comic's going and how it shall end. But that's a long way away off, of course. I hope you enjoy the ride for now! ;)

If you aren't already familiar with our crew, please say hello to our artist, Oskar! We needed someone who could draw the most magical of shoujos, and Oskar delivers the hits.

And none of this would be possible without the support of Hiveworks, especially its CEO Jojo and Isabelle of Namesake.

We're all working hard to bring ya the best comic possible, so please look forward to new pages every tuesday and thursday! I'm really excited by all the positive feedback we've gotten already, and we have some serious surprises in store for you as the story develops.

Stay magical, everyone~! ;)
