Really kinda not sure how to introduce the main concept for the chapter or what it's bringing out in everyone.... Suffice to say, we're gonna get some pages dealing directly with Candice, who hasn't gotten a lot of screentime thus far. ^^ Getting to see a bit of what makes her tick.

Like the current chapter in Blues, this one is devoted to a lot of seeing characters off the clock and just letting them breathe. As such a lot of weird, tiny details got thrown in to show off more about them. Offhand something about Candice looking depressed while eating cereal is something that's oddly universal, isn't it?

One thing we see briefly here that I've always wanted to play up is that Alex is really great with kids. He's a dad but I like to think he also makes special appearances with kids a lot during his job as a super-hero. Since WaR doesn't have a large cast of kids for him to bounce off of, not many chances to show that off outside of Candice or another Blues crossover.

Oh, right, if you're curious (can't recall if this has come up in the comic or not), Candice isn't Blue, she's just got super-powers. Splitting hairs, yeah, but still.

Essentially, this chapter's going to be a series of short stories, showing a bit of the day of numerous members of the cast. There's some intersection on that and cases where characters will appear in each other's stories of first, but not really so much repeating scenes or anything so don't worry on that.

So yeah, we'll be learning a good bit more about Candice in this chapter, though not all at once. Really a common theme throughout the chapter is trying to flesh out some of the side ones, bringing out some of the details that've been in mind about them for a long time but haven't come up yet.

Along that line is the note about Candice being diabetic. That's something that's been an idea of the character for a LONG time, but she hasn't really been in a position to have it come up before. Isn't exactly something we'll see discussed too often, of course, but at least now it's out there.

Oh, one thing that bares noting is the implication is Alex was wearing make-up over his scars while dressed as Starchild, given didn't have them with the costume on but does with it off.
