Eheh... Bit of an ambitious first page for me to write for the comic, eh?

Bit scatterbrained while I type this so might not get into everything, but wanted to dive straight into what this whole experience is like for Alex and how they feel about just having been trapped in Dorothy's life. This nightmare kinda nicely sums up the injustice of being trapped, the betrayal of being hit by people they were close to, sadness over not being able to live their own life, joy over the friendships they've made as a result of all this, and ultimately guilt over what's being done to Dorothy. Based on their reaction, I get the feeling they have either this dream or something like it fairly often. Maybe moreso after actually seeing that recording of Dorothy.

Since the chapter winds up being a Day In The Life sorta deal, this felt like a natural starting point and pretty happy with the result.

OZ being the poster over Dorothy's bed now was a last-minute addition because I'd stupidly left that spot blank in the lineart. Quickly doodled up something with her as a replacement. I think OZ's damage showing her robotic eye was a feature specific to the episode Rick was watching when he summoned her, and that's not typically how the character looks. I also gave her a warmer, less-stand-offish expression to try and make her look less like "Rick's" OZ.

Heh. Probably actually should explain OZ for anyone unaware; she's a robotic assassin from the show Technical King that we've seen Dorothy (and by this point Alex) is a fan of, who in Blue Blood Heroes was brought to life by a guy named Rick and now lives with him. She's actually present in the current Blues chapter -


We have touched on her before in Wright as Rayne - offhand we did a filler introducing her and Laura was dressed up as her at the Halloween party at one point, both before the character was a part of Blues - but does warrant spotlighting here.

But yeah, Adam kind of weighed a lot of ideas for this chapter and the direction he wound up deciding to take with it wound up leading off into some directions WaR doesn't usually go in in general. Think this page is a pretty strong start given that, kind of right away emphasizes that this chapter's going to be pretty different from the norm, and hopefully everyone's going to enjoy what all is still to come with it as we go forward.

Also Sarabeth had even crazier hair in high school. Forget if that's come up before but is where the Ropun name came from, idea is in highschool it was very thick and very colorful so kind of a distorted anime-sounding form of Rapunzel.

Ok, this is very different.
