Eheh... Yeah, this page is basically two regular pages scrunched together. Wasn't going to be a double at first, but we had to move up the schedule to make sure the Halloween chapter STARTS on Halloween.

Really loved this sequence in a lot of ways. Alex is just a great character and I really like the idea that he gets along great with kids. It's something that never really comes up, so was great to see him immediately connect with Candice. Likewise was good to see some depth to the kid. ^^

The idea that "Oh, right, there's someone who misses Dorothy" is something that is weird to only just come up. Most people don't know Dorothy is "Missing" or if they do obviously can't care THAT much about it given they're cool with it. Candice is the only one who seems to both know she's gone and not want it.

Also, I like the fact that Alex has an Agent. Usually with Agents in fiction they're scummy but it kinda makes logical sense for him.

Really loved just drawing these two; two characters I love having a really well-written conversation.

For a long time now I've been wanting to delve into stuff with the real Dorothy and with elevating Candice's position in things so yeah, this scene was pretty overdue and something I really enjoyed writing.

So yeah, this is basically just a two page - both double pages - little wrap-up story, closing off Candice's stuff at the start of the chapter and give a little more information about what happened after the cutoff in the last one. Part of the reason for the abrupt cutoff speaking of, thought it'd put over better the idea of Alex not really remembering things if we only found that much out later.

The Carolina thing is actually a bit of a meta joke. Original papers said South Carolina, Alex later said North Carolina talking about it to I think it was Sareena. Figured this was a pretty good handwave of that mistake since it makes sense Alex would get them mixed up, and it puts over an idea we'll be delving into a little more in the next page. There's a certain thing that's been subtly building on the sideline on the Dorothy subject for awhile now and wonder if anyone's picked up on it.

So yeah, one more double-length page and then a week from today we start chapter sixteen, The DeKalb County Public Access Halloween Special.
