For some reason I always feel pleased whenever we have a weekend update like this. Just kind of feels like how things are supposed to be, I guess.

Not sure what all to say here though, what with the minimal dialogue. Funny thing, initially there was a mistake with this page and it was drawn with Bullet Time's hands free; neither of us noticed until I was nearly done coloring it. Plus side most panels didn't need to be changed much to account for that, only really the fourth and fifth ones. I think you might've seen his hand in the second but it was easily trimmed.

It does feel like sort of an incidental page really; honestly I probably could have put everything that happens in this one into the pages before and after it now that I look. Still, probably for the better, since Black Princess had to kind of rush to its conclusion to keep with WaR and so it doesn't hurt to have at least one extra page in there.

Speaking of that, while I'm not far enough on the scripts yet for it to really affect things just yet, the opposite will most likely be true in , where I'm mostly prioritizing writing BP with WaR's pacing probably partially dictated by how it goes. Both chapters are likely going to be long ones and the plan as it stands is for BP's chapter to run longer and start earlier than WaR's does so keeping them even isn't too crucial for that purpose, but we'll see how that goes.

We have five pages left to go in this chapter, so stick around. The last few pages are going to be eventful.

God, I feel weird tonight. Just not much I wanna do. Hm... Lemme think on what to say here....

Yeah, the hand thing was a big mistake on our part. It gets really confusing for me since I actually drew him USING his hands in the original line-art. You see that last panel, where Alex is leaning to the side. He's supposed to be dodging a punch from Bullet-Time. That wasn't really in the script, so not sure why I added that to begin with....

It's weird for me, 'cause I can't un-see it. It still looks like that fist should be there, barely grazing his face.

Bullet Time learned the hard way what happens when one underestimates Alex, so when is Narcisco going to appear in the comic proper?

Not really sure offhand; she'll probably put in an appearance at some point, but not sure when. There is a chance depending on how some things go she might appear in twelve or thirteen but I'm not 100% on that, it depends on how I decide to go about writing those.
