I'm sorry for the lack of updates the past week- I started a new job that had me working double shifts for the first week, and had a lot of stuff to sort through then move to storage, followed by a couple of on-location gigs, and all it left me with barely any time to spend drawing this page. Things have finally calmed down a bit, although I have a pretty sizable list of things to get done still.
The best place to see what is going on comic-progress wise for Hearts of Roese is my tumblr. I frequently update it, and will mention what is slowing pages down and what else I have going on (currently I have a pretty sizable checklist that i posted yesterday, with barely anything done on it so far)
The people living within the Hearts province no longer bear their own hearts. Instead, strange mechanisms resembling wind-up clocks have been inserted into their chests by their feared Queen, who holds the only key to wind their lives longer.
