Huh. Kinda just hit me how much whiplash this chapter has been giving off.... I guess that's sorta natural given the format of it, but surprising to suddenly realize. We go from a little girl being told, essentially, that her Mom will never be a major part of her life, and now we get a woman welcoming a close loved one back into her life after the latter has been in a coma...

It's a warm, cuddly page though; was fun to work on. Threw together touches like Sareena hugging Misty in the last panel and the two of them wearing those hair-rags while cleaning just for the hell of it. Think it helped make the scene feel more cozy and loving, nicely emphasizing what a big deal it is for Hearst to have Flowers back in her life.

Also love that Martin brought that Christmas picture back. Can't believe how many times we've had to draw it. ^^

The album that Misty is holding in the first panel is Moving Pictures by Rush, picked purely because the cover looks cool.

Yeah, this one's kind of a weird little whiplash thing; from things continuing to be bad for Candice to seeing that things are looking up for Cynthia. This might be the most casually cheerful we've seen her, which makes sense given she's recently been reunited with her best friend. If anything it feels a little weird that it took this long after Flower woke up to return to the subject but kind of had other things going on and imagine she's been needing to do a lot of therapy and the like anyway so not a huge amount to show there.

Of course, there is a bit more of an underlying question in regards to all of this, and that's Five. We've heard the name come up a couple of times now as the one who sent the seed to Sareena that led to Flower being healed, but still a lot of question marks left hanging over that whole matter for the moment.

The Black Court leg of this chapter is kind of especially awkward to comment on I think. Their stuff is a lot more vignette-ish as opposed to the other plots having pretty clear narratives forming throughout them, though I think it kind of works in service of communicating that Sareena and Misty have a lot going on in their lives of late. We'll touch in more on that soon.

Very interesting.
