Yeeeeah, like I said, this one's pretty text-heavy. It does pretty much outline Sarabeth's plan entirely for us, though, is good to get that out of the way.

Also, as scripted the second panel was going to also have Hazel in it, but I guess he was cut for space. Hazel's name I don't think has actually come up in the comic yet, but he's Xmarlek's right-hand man with the greying hair that Power talked to back in Days Go By, who was also on that chapter's cover. Something to keep in mind there, but we'll be properly introducing him next time he and Xmarlek show up.

While we're on the subject of the cast, I restructured the cast page in the process of redesigning the site. Not a whole lot of detail there at the moment, but you do at least get some pictures and names, including for people whose names haven't come up yet like Hazel and O'Hara's bodyguard. If you'd rather avoid some minor spoilers I would hold off on looking though, as one character is someone I went ahead and stuck on even though they're not appearing until the end of this chapter (though he already appeared unnamed in BP), one has already been seen in a filler and in BP but not in WaR proper, and it has the present-day designs of Melissa and Xandy in it that we won't be properly seeing until the short between-chapters storyline we're coming up on.

Anyway, yeah. Not a whole lot to say on this page itself with just how wordy it is and that'll likely continue to be the case for the next couple of pages, but hoping everyone enjoys both it and the new design of the site itself!

Yeah, all three comics got an awesome facelift, all thanks to Martin. ^^ Really makes me wanna get some more advertising done since now the comics look awesome and presentable.

Yeahhhh, Hazel was meant to show up in that first panel but was cut for space. Sometimes for the wordier ones I need to get free space where I can. I've gotten really anal about speech balloons since we started, but think I'm getting better about it. I try not to bitch and moan about a lot of dialog, which I'm sure I still do plenty of but trying not to as much.

Pity, since Hazel has a neat design and do like the AME guys. Ah, well, next time. ^^ Was good to see Feng again too. Her translator's not with her so I guess this means she speaks English. Or Xmarlek and Sarabeth both speak Chinese. That'd be an interesting surprise. ^^

Can't think on much else to say on the page, though. Is neat how Sarabeth does take Lillian into account.

Heh. Maybe her translator's at the end of the table we can't see. Him and Hazel are stuck there due to their presence not being as dramatic.

I had a feeling Sarabeth's plan was to make the big gangs crumble in a domino effect, looks like I was close.
