All donations go toward getting the comic into print.

Every time I reach $20, I'll draw an additional page to post for the week.

First bumper illustration!
My theme for the bumper illustrations will be seeing Jupiter and Otto in the past so we can see them growing up -- or "getting older" in Jupiter's case. The illustrations will converge on a certain point in time.
Since I won't be able to show all the places in time Jupiter's been in the regular comic, these illustrations will help convey his age and experience. I plan on going in order of time, so it should be pretty fun.

SO. If there's a certain place and time you want to see Jupiter, go ahead and suggest. Anything after 1000 AD is good.
It doesn't have to be a specific historical incidence to be at -- in fact I'd rather only do a few of those. I don't want to do the silly Hollywood route where he's at every important event ever. But feel free to name a few of those, too.

This first one is a very "young" Jupiter with his first friends who're also the first people who got to study the big guy. Al-Kareem probably brought him there. Finding reference for Muslim clothing from 1000AD is very difficult, so I ended up just using portraits of scholars/scientists from the time as reference. They were doing some very cool stuff at that time -- it was known as the "Islamic Golden Age".
