Thank you, by the way. This is just a little update for ya.
I've finally heard back from Wacom support, and it seems like they've told me to do exactly what I've already done, but I'm going to try again later today.
If my tablet gets working again, I'm going to try and finish up the comic by Christmas. (Hopefully before then, but hey, school takes priority.) However, I am not going to put much detail into the backgrounds anymore, so there will be a quality dip but really the backgrounds are what takes me so long to do pages.
