I'm really hoping to get a few different comments on this page honestly. I really want to hear very early impressions on this woman, because she's very, very important and I'm kind of unsure what the immediate take-away on her is going to be.

Anyway, unlike what the cover suggests this will make up the vast majority of the chapter - just Sarabeth and this woman talking, with the actual events of the chapter taking the form of extended flashbacks as Sarabeth tells her about various things.

Not to say Arc and those people on the cover don't get seen directly, mind you, since what we're doing with this is seeing the scenes as they happened rather than how Sarabeth is describing them. So don't worry, we're meeting Arc for real in this chapter and he gets a decent bit of screentime.

Not right away though, not to divulge much but early on we'll be dealing with the O'Hara issue first. She'll be making an impact in this chapter, I assure you.

Actually, this is about the point in the comic when I finally get to start making some strides in seeing more of side characters we've established but not spent much time with. Sarabeth is heavily present throughout this whole chapter, Laura got a lot of screentime in the last one, some other characters will be stepping up in the next chapter or two... Yeah, some strides start being made. Most of this chapter is spent focused on Alex, though.

Kinda weird that as soon as Martin described the building in the first panel, I immediately knew what it looked like. Weird, that. And there's no precedent I can think of for something like that to look like what the building looks like.

.... Awkward, yeah, but I can't really say what that building is just yet. Obvious, though there's a particular, unusual word for it I might use instead of the immediate one.

Not much else to say about this page. This did start a discussion between me and Martin on the framing of certain panels, which brought about some changes we're going to be trying out. ^^

I'd like to give you my impression of that woman but I'm drawing a blank here, I honestly don't know what to think about her and this situation and this place but it's got my curiosity aroused.

Martin can't reply, sorry. ^^ But we're really glad you're curious; hope it works out.

I have about fifty questions about what is going on, but they will most likely be answered in the next few pages.

Can someone please fix the fact that this copied itself?

Done. Huh. Honestly, didn't know I could delete comments on here.

Thanks. That for me was one of my more fail moments.
