Pretty happy with this page and the one after it; both, especially the next one, are pretty dialogue-heavy, but I am satisfied with how they both came out.

So yeah, this one specifically. One thing I kind of wanted to do with the principal here is make him clearly not about to be wooed by these cultists' nonsense. Something you see in fiction is a lot is the expendable side characters who kind of buckle or at least hesitate in the face of a list of bullet points of a group's ideology, and that's something that I sort of wanted to avoid here.

Yeah, rather like that you took that route yourself. I rather lke courageous extras or whatever they're called, and this does a nice job establishing that O'Hara's group is really just a group of anarchists not taken seriously.

That portrait in Cox's picture frame wasn't there in the line-art. Sadly it was just too tiny for me to add anything really good and Martin had to add something in in post. Came out better this way at least, just sometimes feel bad having to leave him crap like that to clean up too much.

Damn, Christina likes to hunch over a lot, doesn't she? Apparently O'Hara doesn't give two shits about posture.

Score one for Principal Cox and it looks like Christina likes to rant. No wonder O'Hara was so happy but not everything going her way today since the cultists ambush on Alex failed miserably.

Well, this isn't really so much O'Hara's doing in its own right; this is more just Christina wanting revenge for what went on earlier. Not to say O'Hara doesn't have plans for Alex down the line, of course, but we'll be coming to those soon.

And yeah, Christina does evidently like to rant. Next page in particular we'll be seeing more of that.
