Alternate title for this comment: Shamelessness.

But yeah, there are likely fans who have never heard of Blue Blood Heroes and don't read the comments, so they likely didn't get what we were going for with the last page... Hence this bit. Blue Blood Heroes is another comic we do, set in the same universe, focusing on these six children and their janitor. So... Yeah, that's the basis for Xandy's medical condition and thing with her being pulled out west. There's a link to the site at the top of the page.

Martin originally planned on doing the script for this himself and pasting it together out of pre-existing images, but had trouble putting together a description of the kids so I scripted it and in such a way that I had to do lineart for it. Describing the team is hard; how much information per kid is too much? 'Cause if you get too little, it winds up very... I dunno what the term is.. Theme-Song-ish?

Anyway, in other news, Xandy is still adorable. Also when doing that big center page, was sorta thinking of Mega Man 1's boss screen. Only one where there are six robot masters. Well, that and X1.

Trust me, there is a reason we're showing this beyond just plugging one of the other comics. We'll come back to that, though.

So, I'm not sure how much that really leaves me to say, given I didn't write this one and I don't want to really go into the full story of it yet. I tried something a bit different with the shading on this one - is it all that noticeable? Was a bit more time consuming so if not I'd rather keep with what we've been doing.

Yeah. I'm blanking here, and I'm just commenting on this after being shaken out of bed because the Wi-Fi was acting up and that's a life-or-death situation apparently. Maybe I'll have more to add later, kind of doubt it, but I hope everyone enjoys, go give Blue Blood Heroes and The Black Princess a look if you haven't been reading those, and we'll explain this soon.

You forgot the t in Stonewall in the second panel, I'm sure Xandy will have no trouble making friends with the main seven cast members especially Grant.
