This page is a bit of an oddity; the chapter was originally written without it and then a decent ways into the next chapter, I think when nearly done with it, I realized I should go back and add it to draw more direct attention to Maggi since she's fairly prominent in that one and felt like she just appeared out of nowhere as originally written. This also kind of serves as laying some groundwork for other things relevant in the next chapter but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

It sort of makes it a tricky one to comment on given that, though do think it slots in decently well with the chapter as a whole, other than being kind of a bit of a detour from the framing device since it's not really especially relevant to the goings-on of the rest of the day. Still, is just the one page so think the benefits of adding it outweigh it potentially breaking up the flow a little bit, especially as the next page is a scene change anyway.

Yeah, kind of a simple page but do hope that everyone enjoys. What's funny is this page had a lot of weird things going against it for some reason - needed a bunch of post-finishing edits and now that we needed to get it shaded and submitted Adam's feeling really sick. He managed to get most of it done though, credit to him.

Okay, feeling better now but it's been a rough 36 hours. I think that was food poisoning? Either way, it was NOT fun. Ugh...

But yeah, Maggi was a character designed to be part of the crew for the next chapter but made sense to pop up sooner. She also showed up a few pages ago in the crowded bar, and is a pretty neat change in AME's roster as a clean-cut professional killer as opposed to a violent thug.

It took some doing getting Xmarlek's car ready. How we do cars is I use 3D models, put them in the position we need, and essentially just trace them, but there wasn't any really good car that fit for the angels we were going for. So Xmarlek's car, especially int he first panel, is a couple of vehicles chimera'd together.

I think this is the first really good look we've gotten at Hazel's face in this chatper; other pages it was obscured by the hat or just the people around him. This is the first time we've seen his thicker eyebrows and pale eyes, coupled with the attempts to give side-profile-characters more pronounced chins. I actually really dig how he looks. ^^ Looks very protagonist-ish.
