This is a page I've been wanting to get around to for awhile, to kind of help clear up the gang situation in the setting and get some extra info out about those.

So yeah, here we have sort of the key gang set-up in the city. Most of this we've at least touched on in-story at some point, but this helps to kind of tie the details a bit and give a bit of extra emphasis to things.

Though I will say on that that the Gastons and Kodzo aren't too plot-important. Will definitely be seeing Donna here and there, even if likely not in any important capacity, but Kodzo... His biggest contribution is probably in having been the driving force behind the introduction of Nine Eyes and the Twilight Minister in BP. Outside of that, while there are some plans for him it's tied into something down the line and not into WaR or BP (or Blues for that matter). He might show up here and there, but don't expect anything major out of him.

The cover for chapter eight - which has been said to be called Skeletons in the Closet - comes Friday, then we'll get the ball rolling there. Hope everyone likes how things go moving forward.

I'm actually so into cramming for my math final, it's difficult for me to summon up comments for this. Probably a good sign but still, fuck the university for making me do this. I'm a Psychology major and 80% of this bullshit has no real-world application.

What're we talking about? Oh, right, gang filler... Yeah, enjoyed this one, though had to make the text extra small and altered its readability a bit, I think. Happens sometimes with text, though it doesn't seem to be as much of a problem with the newer, better Manga Studio version I've picked up, so bonus. ^^

I liked doing a lot of the faces here, in particular getting to see Xmarlek and Hazel again. Really fond of the former since he's likely the only one in any of these three comics who actually dresses and carries himself like a crime boss and has a very good look. Also fond of Kudzo, which is a pity since he won't be turning up much in WaR.

You think the hummingbird thing is too haughty of a logo for a street gang? The idea is that The Order is kinda high class and stuffy, as I tried to imply when we saw the inside of one of their bases in Days Go By, but I imagine that logo's probably a bitch to tag.

So we finally figure out who Kudzo is, finally learn what AME stands for and it looks like Donna hit puberty since the last time Adam drew her, how old is she anyway?

She's about fourteen. Last time we saw her she was depicted as she was before her father was brought down, which happened somewhere around three or four years before the start of the story.

I still say it's bit a of risky move to have all these gang members going on at once at the begining but I'm glad you finally got this as a reference for us readers.
