Okay, so first off let's clarify what exactly the plan here is.

We'll be doing about a month of filler before we start the next chapter, primarily to help straighten some things out with the merger and to allow us some time to pull ahead in how much of a backlog we have sitting. There are some other reasons for it, though.

Abe did a BP story forever ago that I'm wanting to run so that will be part of it, and I also even pre-merger wanted to do some pages recapping each comic soon; the merger pretty much necessitated doing that ASAP. Additionally, this is the end of book two - we'll be doing a cover for book three before getting to the cover of the next chapter.

As such, and to help prepare people for the changed schedule, starting next week we'll be updating both WaR and BP each Monday and Friday with said filler, until we've burned through all seven pieces of it and then the Friday after that's done with we'll have covers for chapter thirteen - Shopping Star, Burning Bright.

The page proper then...

Yeah, probably not too much of a shock that the stuff with Hazel and Xmarlek has been there to build up to something, particularly that page amongst the filler after the last chapter. This is definitely going somewhere in a hurry.

Though that's not to say we're done with the O'Hara, McShay, and Rin issues. Not by a longshot. Got a lot of plans in place for the future, particularly with the merger coming, so stay tuned - going to try and have all the BP chapters uploaded to the Comic Fury site by this time next week, but for now if you're wanting to start binging during the break you can either do it here - http://theblackprincess.thecomicseries.com - or you can check out our DeviantArt mirror where both comics are already uploaded together.

Yup. Last page of the chapter. ^^

It's usually pretty cool to go back to old locations we haven't seen in forever and check 'em out. And I do like AME in general; are a good pool of bad-guys for action and it's about time they got more to do.

I'm starting to realize that's one strength between Blues' more episodic storytelling has over the arc-based storylines we see from BP and WaR, focusing on mostly a single bad-guy at a time for several chapters makes it a long time to form a sizable rouge's gallery. Just something to consider, I guess. Hadn't occurred to me until just now.

Anyway, yeah, this new guy, Mercy... he was pretty fun to design. ^^ Had some very specific stuff in mind for him. Really new designs are always fun to try out nowadays; just let the ideas fly until we get something good. A major influence on him actually wound up being The Cousins from Breaking Bad, mainly in how he dresses.

Uh guys in the fifth panel the word balloon is pointing toward Mercy instead of Xmarlek.

Wow, that's embarrassing. Eheh... Fixed, thanks for pointing that out. ^^
