This page was pretty much born out of the same problem that led to filler on Blues this week, just kind of looking to take things a little easier and give ourselves a bit more breathing room; as such we have this light, simple extra page that was added in just to sort of give us more time to pull a bit further ahead with the comics proper. Sorry for the inconvenience but at least in this case was able to find a way to advance the story a bit with it.

I do think this page being edited in does add more than it hurts though; we get to see Sareena directly reacting to her current aesthetic when otherwise I'm not sure when it would've come up plus we get a bit more Ropun and that's always great. She's been relatively out of focus lately, in large part due to the Patriot Initiative and Alex stuff, and won't figure into the next chapter either so it's nice to give her slightly more to do.

We haven't really done much of Sareena hanging out with Laura within Wright as Rayne, have we? Know there was the Halloween chapter but other times I can think of like when they went ice-skating or the ghost story were in Black Princess. Weird.

Either way, next page we'll be starting up the next one of these stories. I am... particularly curious how aspects of that are going to go over.

Also, it goes unstated here but I'd say the reason Sareena didn't just have Ana summon her is that it'd raise a lot of questions and potentially create problems just suddenly appearing in the middle of a party sporting a different look.

Yeaaah, again, this has been a rather awkard couple of months and needed an easier break... At least Martin found a way to edit it in smoother than it was in Blues... And was fun to draw to boot. ^^

There's not much for me to say here, but never pass up an excuse to draw Ropun; always a good day with her around. Also I love the idea that Day gives all laundromat-businesses a conspicious sun-based name. ^^

We mentioned before that Sareena's makeover was a really last-minute change that we threw in. The entire script's chapter had already been written, so there was nothing in the script with her reacting to it. This was a fun way to slot that in now. Would've been hilarious if we'd never gotten that scene until two chapters from now and she only was told about it by then.
"Wait, what? How long have I looked like this?"!
