Thief of Hearts: Back From the Dead

Hello, and welcome to the new and improved "Thief of Hearts" comic! So here is the story:
Once upon a time, a high schooler wrote a comic about a man on the run from Death. His sole salvation was the harvesting of hearts from 12 key victims to create a powerful prescription that can keep his rotting heart alive and beating in his chest. However, when he tried to steal the heart of Charlotte Dulce, he ended up being expelled about 12 yards back into a garbage can.
It has been quite a while since I last updated this comic; I was writing under the flourish "Surrealmasque" at the time, and since then, I have evolved into Sachelarot, and I have to say, I missed working on this story. I loved the characters and the unique ideas that I had brewing in my head! However, life gets busy and changes interests, and for a while, I let "TOH" sit on the back-burner, and every time I tried to pick it back up, something would occur to knock me off track. WELL, NO MORE!
Despite the fact that my Surrealmasque account (both on yahoo mail and here, I'm afraid), decided to lock me out from touching the original webcomic site due to somehow not recognizing all of my passcodes, I believe that a fresh start is probably fitting anyway. To any of you who were my readers before, I am so sorry that I disappeared for so long, and that I decided to start this over. Believe me, it is for the best. I've improved a lot, and though it will take some time to get back to where we were before, I know that this will be a major benefit for the story, and if you are at all interested in following this reboot, thank you so much, and welcome back.
I was never satisfied with the original (and downright horribly drawn) opening chapter for the first edition. It was too long, and god, I was awful at backgrounds! But now after a lot of practice, I am confident that I can deliver the story the way it should have been delivered originally. I altered some character designs, changed a lot of the first chapter, made some minor changes, ect ect... but I am very excited to finally get to remake one of my favorite creations.
I will be posting up the first chapter of the reboot soon!
Thank you all for reading "Thief of Hearts". Enjoy~!!!
