Dearest Citizens,

There’s been quite a dry spell in the forecasted updates for The Radiant Ones, so we’ve decided to release the rest of Book 1 in a final flood of pages. It’s live now, in its fully-revised glory.

To make TRO was for us to become artists in the real world for the first time, and it represents a lot of achievement for Three Point Comics. We’ve learned a lot since we began, especially about the scope of projects one chooses to kick off their creative endeavors.

It was with our truest intention that we revised this edition of Constellation: Our plan was to do the same to Book 2 and then move on to the rest of the series. But the story—our lives, our interests, our art—has itself moved on.

We hope you enjoy this first book immensely, and we’re so grateful to our fans, friends and family for their support bringing it to print. But we’re shelving the rest of the series, as we focus our energy on Tightrope. Don’t worry, though: We have a feeling that The Radiant Ones will be back again someday. After all…

Death is what you make of it,

Considering where we are now, how can we even begin to imagine the future? Will the outcome be hopeful? Only time knows the answer.

Lots of flip-flops in this scene, as we see the “monster” revealed. But if behind Mercer’s mask there is an age-old shorthand for evil, then what do we make of the foundations of his attack on Nova? It’s a far cry from the sensationalism we’ve witness in The Star throughout the book…

In contrast with our Vitruvian Man “montage,” where the central figure was split across two separate and isolated spreads, in this second one, we chose to combine the two halves with a more direct face-off, as the conflict has escalated.

The prior scene was the fork in the road for Nova and Conrad. Now each takes the first step down a totally separate path…or perhaps realizes that they’ve been walking separate from each other all along.
From introduction to affinity, affinity to respect. Respect to difference, to disagreement, to defiance…to disaster? This all became personal far too long ago: Their only choices are to walk their divided paths to their forgone conclusions.
