This page is sort of a weird one to talk about since it's largely transitional on the face of it, but really has a lot going on in it when you break it down. Kind of extends to it being the lightest page visually in awhile, though we kind of needed that since schedule's been a little tight lately. At least the current Blues chapter is nearly done which'll give us some more breathing room.

Of course, the big things here are Alex getting away with the lock and Hazel lying about this to Xmarlek; feel like there's a lot of room to read into both of those and get some speculation going. Beyond that you also have very clear tensions between the AME and Order, which given that's part of what Alex's Starchild mission is about is pretty notable in its own right. Sort of only realizing as I kind of sit down to post this just how deceptively substantive this page really is since on the face of it it kind of feels like it's just wrapping up this flashback scene.

For what it's worth, I've thought about showing how exactly Alex ditched Poppy Tear when we get to filler; I do have an idea of how Alex managed to do so but kind of unsure if I should actually show it in filler or just have it explained in the comic when it becomes relevant. Wouldn't mind getting some input on that since I can kind of see arguments both ways on it.

Heheh... Yeah, the pages are kinda coming in pretty hot off the presses now, but can't be helped. Just a lot barreling down on us at the moment. But this was a fun page to get out; Xmarlek is looking so disheveled and worn out, and then finding that his shake alliance with the Order is going up in smoke....

Like Martin said, this page is very hard to talk about as it's mostly setting this up. It's interesting that Hazel would be quiet about this, given how pissed he's been over the course of this fight.

Gaaah, can talk more later.

I think it would make for interesting filler.
