I actually totally forgot this was how we were opening the chapter. Thought we were running Friday's page. Glad though, since this page is a way-stronger opening. Alex is really rocking the new look!

Yeah, it was sort of a plan to begin with Alex would eventually get comfortable enough to not have that big a problem wearing skirts. Helps he wasn't exactly the most masculine guy ever in his own body. Also of note is the T-Shirt. Martin just asked me to put him in a "cute T-Shirt" in the script, so I Googled around and found that. If you re-made Breaking Bad into a Japanese Dating Sim, that would be the logo.

Sarabeth's new shirt was all Martin's though. Will let him discuss that. ^^ Either way, really love this chapter. Alex goofing around with Laura and Lillian for costumes is a ton of fun.

Oh, and Ozais is holding Radio!Jake hostage. I dunno, is okay, I guess. Just hope we don't start focusing on that. Be better as a background sorta deal.

Basically Sarabeth was at first drawn in just a plain shirt, and I decided I wanted to put something a bit more detailed and fitting with her anime fandom on there. Debated on it for awhile and randomly came up with the Luna thing. Dunno from where, just kind of occurred to me. Not even a Sailor Moon fan or anything.

But yeah, on the whole pretty happy with this one. Think it does show that it's too separate pages kind of smashed together, but I think it works well for it personally and is a nice little way to sort of integrate things together.

As you can see, Ozias has been given a bit of a redesign this time around. We thought it'd work a little better to make him a bit less flashy and 70s, at least for this chapter, though do like the old look and wouldn't be surprised if we end up having him rocking it again at some point.

Also, since I tend to comment on whatever's going on in wrestling in these things and no one's complained yet, man, that finish blew, huh?

This is an interesting way to start a chapter, jeez Jake do you not let anything bother you while your working, and wow Alex burn.
