Heheh.... Yeah, this one came honestly because I felt the chapter was starting on too much of a downer note with the first two pages, so I wanted something that would cheer Alex up. Christina and Ropun were waaaaaay high up on the list of characters I wanted to use if I was gonna write my own WaR chapter and so they were natural ones to bring in. So what better time than right at the start?

We saw it a couple of pages ago, but here we have a better view of Christina's new haircut, not stubby anymore but with that sort of cool, bristly look to it. Actually really happy with the result, since it does still look like hair that was shaved slowly growing back, only we're at another step in the process.

We saw Ropun doing this sort of fantasy-world imagination session back in "Shopping Star", and I wanted to bring it back just for the cool visuals. In particular I was going for a kitchy, cheesy, 70s sci-fi feel like Logan's Run. Martin's color job really helped that feeling; pages come off looking so dopey. She's also clearly gotten more comfortable with Alex given she doesn't flinch out of it when they interrupt her this time. ^^

Yeah, this one was pretty fun. Kind of just having some good dynamics with the cast while getting to do something a bit out of the ordinary; I've been really enjoying how much Adam's been just kind of making the chapter kind of quirky with odd setpieces so far, just kind of immediately makes this chapter pretty striking just a few pages into it.

First time in awhile seeing the hallways of the school. I was kind of stuck between trying to keep with continuity while also just trying to make things look better here; I based the pink hallways we've seen before off of there being parts of my high school that looked like that, but it is kind of an eyesore so I wanted to move away from it. All the same I didn't want to do a complete retcon of it, so kind of had to find this good sweet spot here where it's more this tan-ish kind of color I think looks a lot more pleasant. Same goes for Lillian's backpack; I looked way back at chapter 1 for reference on that one and wanted to make it look consistent with how it did there while also tweaking it a bit to look better because, like, it was back in chapter 1.

In general it has been fun just how many ages-old callbacks Adam's been fitting in, like as mentioned the Shopping Star thing. Really hoping everyone's enjoying the ride on this.
