Yeah, this is another pretty good sign that there's something below the surface here that we'll be getting back to later. More or less the end of the overt references to it (besides Sareena and Misty being in the next page as well, anyway), but are a few more little things relating to what the general theme of that chapter is here and there. Power's comments should give at least some vague idea of what exactly is going on.

And speaking of, yeah, Power and Glory will be a couple more of the characters we'll be spending the chapter hanging around with, largely serving as something of a chorus for some of the events of the chapter. Really have six central characters throughout this one - Ivy, Alex, Power, and Glory are among those, but the other two... Well, you'll see within a few pages, but it's probably not that difficult to pin down.

Incidentally this is Candice's last appearance in the chapter. Yeah, the cover box thing was chosen really more due to thematic significance than plot; she will, however, be kicking off the next chapter most likely and will be prominent in it.

Actually feels kind of weird commenting on this page in general, given the chapter's been finished script-wise already and so we have a more concrete idea of the exact specifics of some things than usual. Typically I have most of the plot more or less in mind well before starting but have some holes I need to patch along the way and some things to consider; this one also had that while writing it, but it's been scripted for awhile so isn't really as much to say on the, "Maybe, maybe not," as I typically have for my comments on these things early on.

Oh, one thing that does bare going into is Glory's mask; I'll let Adam get into the design of it, but when coloring it, I tried to work with the idea of it being a mask that fits her general aesthetic and gimmick, but was not actually intended to go with her costume and thus doesn't entirely mesh up with it.

I'd say something about Rage getting dressed up in a suit to go to the birthday party of his girlfriend's kid, but in BP we saw him in a suit hanging out in his house. The guy's just a snappy dresser.

Keeps feeling like there's something I meant to bring up on this page and am just forgetting about. I dunno. If nothing else it bares mentioning that the banner - as you can see if reading this on Comic Fury - and the cast page have been updated, the latter with a bit of new art made specifically for it. I'm wanting to try and add some quick descriptions of each character to go along with it, but that might be a bit.

The Blues one, it doesn't hurt to go ahead and mention, will be a little longer on updating. Not too much, as it's already a work in progress and the bulk of it's been put together, but also doing some original art to go with it and with seven main characters as opposed to just five (and Munbizu since it was hard to find good art of him at a decent size) for this, it'll take a bit to fit it into the schedule.

It turned out after I input the new font into Manga Studio's needlessly-complicated text system I had a setting off, so all the bars were waaaay further apart than they should have been. Fixed it, hence why the lines of text are closer together now, starting here. Would be lying if I said I didn't find it weird to read, but whatever; takes up less space this way.

Not much to say on this one. It really is getting weird how Cathy hasn't noticed her daughter has been replaced with an imposter at this point. Especially since the last page clearly showed this party apparently contains everyone Dorothy has ever met ever, makes you wonder what "Friend" she's gonna go see. I guess the Robinsons?

Martin pointed this out to me and can't unsee it; Misty looks like she's about to slap the shit out of Sareena in that last panel. Like, right across the face.
