And rest of the day wasn't much better. .... Eh, I'll get over it. Helps that this page continues to be fun and awesome, with a great show-off of the Witching Hour and establishing their deal as elite-level Eighth Sin employees, basically Sareena's group except better. It's a very ominous fact to only drop at the end of the discussion. ^^

The main thought on this page is that the moon image was a last-minute decision. Originally the last panel of this page was going to show a picture of Modern-Day Young and exactly what he's up to. That image was scripted, drawn, and colored before we realized we had planned to keep some of that mystery under wraps and needed to come up with a way of hiding it. Martin did this great image of a moon just to play into the guy's motif. ^^

I was bored and wound up buying a Super Sons comic today, so that's inspired me to mention that Devin, the blond spoiled little shitbag, was heavily inspired by Damian Wayne, at least design-wise. He's kind of meant to be an insufferable, loud-mouthed son of privileged. As for Callum, the British member with the glasses, Martin mentioned another parallel with him the other night, but not sure if it was an intended reference or just a funny coincidence. ^^

I actually didn't color it but yeah, that was something where I wrote it, was immediately unsure about it, and then decided to backpedal on it. Probably won't be too long before we get more of an answer on that but now didn't feel like the right time for it.

But yeah, just kind of mentioned Callum offhand striking me as something like Bayonetta and it's kind of partially on purpose maybe? The snarky Brit element possibly a little bit, but not really sure it was intended that he has a somewhat similar haircut and also wears glasses. Though not like they're one to one, don't plan to have Callum strip and he's an alchemist so not a whole lot of overlap in abilities there.

This is the end of the Young aside, we'll be shifting to the Patriot Initiative matter next page. Kind of out of place in this chapter I'll grant, but is info that's been due to come up for awhile now and it did tie into some of the plans for where the characters are going from here and flowed organically enough out of the conversation with Section 24.

Do hope that everyone's been enjoying thus far. Be sure to swing by Friday for when we introduce an art shakeup we've been experimenting with lately.

So Young locked up in the same place as Jorden, very interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.

Heh, do hope you'll enjoy what's coming as we shift more directly into the Patriot Initiative stuff.
