Xylobone Tomes is a long-form fantasy adventure webcomic, heavier on the sorcery than the swords, following undead wizard, Saga, and his cute companion.

It's made by me, Maryanne.

Why Aren't the Newer Pages Finished?

Prior to returning to comic updates with pencilled pages in June 2020, the comic had been on hiatus for almost 4 years. Pain in my hand and wrist had been making it harder and harder to keep up with the comic update schedule, and in those 4 years, the condition of my hand never really improved.

Though I explored the idea of switching to a sort of prose format, Xylobone Tomes is not a novel. It is a comic. And so I arrived at this compromise, to post unfinished pages so that the story may continue in its intended form. Updating with unfinished pages, I ultimately decided, was preferable to not updating at all.

The plan is to post completed inked and shaded comics in chapter blocks when I am able to finish them, but these will likely be a long time in coming. I will announce on social media when completed chapters have been posted. Additionally, the images on the Archive page will provide a quick reference to which chapters have completed art.

Thank you for reading.
