Whew. Done. Man, that was a lot of Halloween.

Feel weird commenting on this. It's something rather disconnected from the rest of the chapter and reallllly distracted. Will say that I found the construction-bit in in that one panel really difficult to draw, but totally loved the workdesk. ^^

Also I like having to discuss with Martin how overgrown Rin's facial hair should be. ^^ Every time it's more.

Yeah, next step forward on the Rin and O'Hara plot! ... Although it'll be a wee bit longer before we really visit it further.

One rather awkward thing over the next couple of chapters is that they could kind of come in either order - one was planned to be all about the O'Hara plot, the other all about the date stuff we've been setting up. The decision was made to focus on the date stuff first since it's been getting more build within this chapter itself and is probably going to be the longer of the two, though neither chapter will be anywhere near as long as this one, don't worry. Not hitting 60 pages again any time soon, hopefully ever.

This said as was mentioned before, a break is coming. Typically I don't really like to take more than a couple weeks off from WaR, with usually plot-relevant full comics coming in the middle of extended breaks if I do do them but in this case... Yeah, no, I'm coming off two straight chapters with zero break in between them, one of which is handily the longest chapter to date so far in either comic, we're going on a sabbatical for a bit.

More details will follow on Monday but it'll probably pretty much look like the filler for Blues the other day did. Not recycling the same exact page or anything though, mind you. In either case we also have a bunch of other filler already planned, including a little bit more stuff along the Halloween theme and a first look at a group of characters who'll be debuting soon, a couple of them within the next chapter.

At the moment we're also looking at doing a new logo and have something in mind - it's long been a struggle to get a logo that properly captures the spirit of WaR I think but I feel like we've hit on something that we should be able to carry out soon. Not sure if that'll debut as filler, as a new site banner, on the next cover, or what but it won't be too long before you see it in either case.

Now then, about this page...

I spent a long time kind of mulling over the idea of what exactly this thing Rin's making could be and what it could be called before I eventually hit on exactly where I wanted this device to go and what its function was to be. Think wound up with a good, ominous name and design, with at least a couple little indicators along the line we're looking at with this. It'll be something we explore further soon enough, don't worry.

Be sure to swing by Monday, and also watch out for the start of the next chapter in a few weeks, A Man and a Woman!
