..... The really awkward part is these guys aren't gonna be showing up in Blues for a WHILE. Like, at least until after the current story arc (which is just starting) wraps up. So they're gonna be taking a pretty slow route to Sapphire City. Maybe they keep stopping at amusement parks along the way.

Just wanted to gte that out so it's clear these guys won't be popping in anytime soon. ^^ Funnily, them showing up in Blues was NOT intended when they were first created, we just think there's a lot of fun we could have with that particular match-up. Lot of ways that fight could play out. Plus I had a lot of fun with this pair and really want a chance to write them.

I also love Megan's Aside Glance in that one panel. It came out more blatant than me and Martin were picturing, but we found it too funny to change it.

Yeah, this is kind of the inverse of the Rick situation - Everett and Megan were specifically come up with for Wright as Rayne, Adam wanted to use them in Blues at some point (we have a pretty firm idea of what we're going to do with it when we get there), so decided to leave the door open for that at the end here.

Either way though they'll definitely be showing up in WaR again at some point - I intend for this to have made an impact on Ana and Paxton and to explore it a bit more going forward, including something I have in mind at the moment for the next chapter though not sure how much time it'll necessarily get. It'll likely be a long time before they do crop up, given as mentioned they're not showing up in Blues for the foreseeable future and that's kind of the next planned step in their storyline, but it'll happen. Was trying to emphasize that in the dialogue here, making it clear Everett's ultimate goal in going after them is to regain the "family" he just lost and ending on that note.

Related note, there are a couple of reasons Everett's using the Blues kids' real names. Partially it's for the gradual build to making it obvious what he's talking about, partially because I imagine this is probably how the news reported them when they went public.

Either way, yeah. We'll be going on a bit of a break for a bit before we get to chapter 22, Into the Blue. Hope everyone's going to enjoy that one, we've really been looking forward to it.

why do I get the feeling that fontainium staff is going to be involved when the kids take this guy down?

Other than asking Dorothy to sight a petition to rename Stonewall Sapphire City, I think I missed the a tall reason the name change happened

Eheh.... There really was no reason. I just didn't get the name Sapphire City until the comic was way into its run and wanted an excuse to change it. So I made some clumsy rationals and did so. ^^
