Well, that search didn't take long, eh?

This chapter kind of went through some back and forth for a bit on how exactly to structure it and how much of a chase was going to be involved, but I eventually decided for the plans I had in place for it it worked best for these two to just be completely forward in presenting themselves to the group looking for them. We'll get more into that when we get further context as to why exactly they're here.

Ands hey, Ella! She's kind of just here for the fun of it I guess; we haven't really seen much CANDLE presence in either comic in awhile and after how useful she was in finding Megan and Everett this felt like a good place to bring her in for a small bit. This is all of her involvement in the chapter, was going to be a bit more when it was going to be more of a search, but it's still good to have her pop up I think, get some good back-and-forth. Feel like this kind of role would ordinarily be filled by Power but did have fun mixing it up a bit and bringing up the continuity of her being a contact Sareena's formed.

This page actually wound up weirdly snowballing. I ended up going pretty crazy on the cleanup compared to usual and redrew significant chunks of it; kind of started from being dissatisfied with how the pants looked and then it just kind of ramped up from there, in particular adjusting how we do side profile shots. Think took some cues from the work I've been doing on Militant Gold; gotten a couple of pages of it drawn but I do definitely need to pick up the pace on it, still kind of finding my groove with it.

Heh... Really like this page but actually not sure what to comment on for it. ^^

Will say that I was really happy to see Ella again. Very neat surprise when I saw the script. It's been a bit since we've gotten a really good look at either of the CANDLE twins, so was cool seeing one again now that the art's improved. ...... Looking at it again, jeez, that uniform is so militaristic. Makes you realize that if they weren't so brainless and nicey-nice the CANDLE twins could really push for some hateful rhetoric.

I like how Alex continues to not want to be here. They have so little stake in what's happening and are probably thinking about how many other, better things they have to do than stand here listening to idiots pretend to contribute to things. ...... I need to take a break from my job.

Heh... Wait, did Jordan hear Ella's whole speech or does she just always look that smug? I'd believe either one.
