Funny - last time we saw Alex he had just gone to bed, and now that's where he is now. The last chapter should make it obvious that this isn't taking place directly after that, but it is kind of funny.

Idea here naturally is that Candice and Maria are staying with Sarabeth while in town, Candice in a guest room and Maria on the couch. Figured that was pretty obvious but hey, pages like this don't give a whole lot to talk about.

Also, think Sarabeth and Lillian are tied for second most consecutive chapter appearances currently running, with Power on top with seven. Cast list for chapter three's not exactly huge so it serves as the cutoff for most people, including the only one the Phoenix sisters haven't appeared in so far besides Lillian not being in the prologue, and Alex not appearing in the last chapter cut him off. Nine Eyes on the BP side of things would also be above the sisters, but will go ahead and say now that he's not going to be in 98.9: The Ride.

Yeah, sort of jabbering here. Like I said, not much going on to say about the page itself. Also, not entirely decided yet if Glory will put in another appearance in this chapter beyond this page so... Yeah, you'll see I guess. As for the reason for the gas mask, that'll be explained down the line but it does involve Candice's powers.

Really scatterbrained at the moment, but let's see what I've got to say.... ^^

Really did love this one- very neat set up, particularly the first panel.

The comic uses thinner lines on the characters now, but the first time I did this page, I did almost every single head in the thicker lines I use for Blues until I caught myself. Wound up having to go back and re-do most of it.

The third panel should've been better, though. Since I was a kid, I've had this huge phobia of a stranger coming into my bedroom while I'm sleeping. If I'd done it right, I'd be terrified of the image in that panel, but clearly something went wrong.

Other major complaint for me is that the letter to Alex isn't well-placed, but that's more nitpicking.
