The seed has been hanging over the comic for about seven years now, which is sort of wild to think about, and Sareena getting it happened about four years ago. Crazy how time goes by but here we are.

I feel like the Flower plotline is a bit of a casualty of the comics merging; while I've enjoyed the stuff we've done building up to her in the past, it did largely happen in Black Princess rather than in Wright as Rayne. Still, I did try to mitigate that a bit by way of both summarizing the situation in the filler (along with some added detail) and by suggesting a particular Black Princess chapter be read before this one started so I do hope that everyone is at least on board with this turn in the plot. ... While we're on the subject of lingering plot threads involving Cynthia we'll come back to the stuff with her and Alex relatively soon, I promise.

If this page looks off any it was drawn while Adam's power was out from Hurricane Delta and thus was under different conditions from normal, though I think for all the tweaking we had to give it it came out the other side looking fine. Next one's more the one we're really hoping to nail in terms of art so hopefully everyone's going to enjoy that when we get there.

Yeaaah, this page was drawn in my aunt's dining room, trying to ignore the comments from my relatives who were also there to avoid the storm. While I was thankful to my aunt for letting us stay there, I was very happy I was only there for one night.

But yeah, finally seeing what the seed is there for. I love the concept of these resurrection-seeds, so I've had a lot of plans offhand to include them in Blues on-and-off. Nothing's quite panned out yet but quite curious to use it in the future. The weird thing is Martin recently come up with a concept for Militant Gold that I think I can introduce much quicker.

Gah, I keep getting distracted with something else, but this page's rather hard to comment on... I like that this is taking its time and really letting it sink it; really makes it show that this has a lot of impact. ^^ Hope folks will enjoy this as it goes in; it's a very different thing to draw.

Actually, on that note - the first chapter of Militant Gold has been written and I'm presently looking around for an artist. If anyone's curious for more information please let me know.
