Max and Ruby were reworked a bit before we launched the current version of the comic in 2005. Their behaviors in this storyline, Ruby's especially, are off compared to the current version. Put it down to us learning who these two people are.
In other words, please remember that certain events in the Version I archive are no longer considered canon.
You're currently reading the original archives. These comics were completed over ten years ago! Darc has progressed a long way in both her art and storytelling skills. Please refrain from pointing out errors and such, we know that these pages are rough. They are ten years old after all and from the beginning of her comic journey!
