As it’s early days in Solid’s run, I’m still figuring out and assembling the “rules” of how the series operates. In panel 4 of this week’s strip, I formalized the rule that “sometimes, if it feels right, just let the backgrounds get really weird without really explaining why.” I’m sure this one’s going stand me in good stead as the series progresses.

And that brings us to the end of our first chapter or part or episode or whatever word makes sense for “first chunk of story.” Something I wanted to do with Solid Metal Override is have the freedom to tell sightly longer chunks of narrative, rather than being bound so tightly to single page-length episodes as I was with a lot of Ghosts. Tune in next week for the beginning of Chunk Two.

So with our first “normal sized” episode you will have discovered that Solid Metal Override is composed around normal, print-comic dimensions (because… well, basically I just felt like working that way with this series). But if you prefer your webcomics to be a bit more screen-friendly in their layout then fear not! Because you can also read the series every week in an infinite canvas format over at Webtoon. See? Problem solved!
