Ughhhhh.... Jesus, after this page goes up, we only have a month of comics ready for WaR and I've been too busy to draw more since finals start this week... Hopefully I can catch up soon.

Anyway, yeah, Martin wrote this scene as a short little diddy between us some time ago, before O'Hara was really appearing in the comic. I kinda asked him to try and put her in this situation, but the direction she took with it stood out to me as a Character Establishing Moment and made her stand out as a villain in my mind. I think I asked him if he could include it in the comic proper since it gives you a good insight into her, and was pretty happy when he did.

Yeah, you can tell just from who she's talking to this isn't gonna end well. ^^ Either way, her bodyguard clearly doesn't care.

That robe was an alternate one I drew up for O'Hara when doing the first designs for her. I liked it better than the other one; I think Martin's the one who told me to take the other one and make it her "Main" one. Only thing that might change for both the robes is they might suddenly get sleeves. Because those tattoos are really time-consuming and annoying to do for both of us.

Yeeeah, I'm really working page to page myself. Sort of a bit of poor timing where every comic has a lot of busy pages all at once.

Anyway, yeah. I did definitely want to slip this in somewhere or other, and this chapter's a good place for it given we'll be seeing a lot of O'Hara as she is around her followers. In general, this chapter pretty much is the one where she's really kind of cemented as the current main villain, and what goes on in this scene is a good start toward that.

But yeah, personally the other robe is my preference of the ones that we designed for her, but all three of thoseare likely going to see use; she's probably switching to a fourth one once she reaches her destination, mostly to cover up the tattoos. The brown one's likely going to be the main one we see, but she'll likely alternate between all four moving forward.

Weird fact here, both today's WaR page and tomorrow's BP one introduce someone named Jacob. Granted, the one in BP's name doesn't come up there, but still, kind of a weird little coincidence.

So it will be a week before we see what evil things O'Hara will be doing, ah well I'm good at waiting and are you saying Laura's father's name is Jacob or is it somebody else?

Yeah, his name's Jacob. Probably actually come up in one of the comics in the next WaR chapter, but we'll see on that; he only gets a brief appearance in BP.
