The idea to have Lillian learn about Starchild here was a pretty recent one, really come up with just a little bit before it was actually implemented. I don't think I'd even run it by Adam before I wrote it into the scripts.

The intention of course was always for Lillian to learn about it eventually. I just decided to pull the trigger here because, well, in general this is a big chapter with a lot going on so it'd fit with the shake-ups coming to the comic over the course of it, plus Lillian's been needing something to sort of kick her into being more hands-on with the plot for awhile now, so I decided to go ahead and let her in on things early. Have some ideas with where all this will go from here, it'll certainly be getting some follow-up soon even though it's not in the next page or anything.

Really liked doing this page really. I get the sense, and I have tried to build this up in their interactions even though they haven't really had much screentime together, that Alex has warmed up to Lillian quite a bit. Maybe doesn't see her with the same level of importance as she sees Dorothy, but I think there's some closeness there and he does care about her, and personally think this scene did a good job of kind of communicating it.

In either case, hope everybody enjoys and we'll see you next time!

Anyone who's been keeping up with Webcomicast, we did EGS this week, so here it is; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqnz6HesuaY

But yeah, it's almost like when Heather found out in Blues. It was really spur-of-the-moment and mostly compelled by wanting to give her a part of sorts in the plot.

Think the scene did do a good job of showing the connection, though. Especially that hug. Just looks great. ^^ Seems like I almost never do hugs from that angle, which is stupid because it's way easier to draw than from the side-angle.

Funnily enough I had to edit this like a few hours before it was submitted (after it'd been otherwise completed for a week) because I'd put Lillian in shoes in the first panel when she's supposed to be barefoot. Martin told me as soon as the page was colored, just I didn't get to it until earlier today.
