It's going to feel so weird not updating on Friday...

Okay, the new format and new schedule are now here. Really, I don't think this page is quite an ideal introduction to how much quicker things can move with the new format, given it was first scripted with the old one in mind; some of the dialogue was moved and the first two panels were added in revising things, but everything here besides actually seeing O'Hara's followers and Alex was still present.

Though this page does ensure Lillian's current appearance streak keeps up. I intended for her to show up in a proper scene at the end of the chapter but I wound up revising that for time, so instead she just has to settle for this cameo here. We'll see more of her in chapter ten, I promise.

Odd little side observation on this page - have to like that Miss Brooks has now been promoted to getting to wear a different-colored outfit. Given she was initially just an extra intended for a scene or two whose basic design is a Watchmen reference, is good to know that she's still recognizable even with blue on instead of red. Personally think she wears it pretty well.

Speaking of Miss Brooks and Power, we will see them again before the end of the chapter. It's going to be awhile, but it'll happen.

Who we won't see though is Rin. That mention in the fourth panel's about it; his storyline will be advanced a bit and we'll definitely get a lot of him in the next chapter, but he's not in this one. We'll be getting a lot of O'Hara, though.

Somehow I feel like I'm gonna regret the schedule change, but there's not a whole lot of other options ahead of us. Please stick with us, okay?

Still, not like this chapter won't be a pain; some of the scripts look pretty damn demanding. Though the upcoming Blues chapter is overflowing with heads so can't complain, I guess. The last panel here was especially awkward for me, but think it came out alright.

Anyway, liked a few sets and touches here, especially the backroom feeling of the first panel. Get the feeling the third and fourth were meant to have a similar tone from the script, but if so, I dropped the ball in that department.

The assassin in the last panel is the same guy Power was talking to at the end of the last chapter. I didn't realize he was going to be recurring at first and figured he was just some typical henchman, so regretted not giving him a more interesting design. Hence, y'know, the hat....

Heh... Funny bit; Brooks wasn't in the script for this page. I just added her randomly since it'd been a while since we'd seen her. ^^

Looks like Alex was right when he said hadn't found all of Power's bugs yet, and you slipped in a mention of Laura's role in the current BP chapter, and don't worry guys the format change will make this easier to deal with then the semi-hiatus.

Heh. Well, difference between this and the mini-hiatus is that my computer needed to go to the shop and we basically had no choice or time to consider options.

Yeah, bit of a tie-in to BP; it'll be a few pages in before we see her there, though. We appreciate the support.
