Heheh... Yeah, Daryl and Sonia are coming into the cast and will be sticking around for a while. Both really fun, especially loved Daryl. Enjoyed drawing him pretty much immediately.

I don't remember if it was mentioned in the last chapter but the idea is that Daryl, Ana's unintended new brother, is trans, though did try to make it come across in how he's drawn. Gave him a necklace to help make that even clearer.

In general I sort of love all the little touches in this page. Christina smoking outside, Grant running on the treadmill while Ivy skulks around watching him... Grant's expression to look really intimidated but also determined. But then because of the bar on the side of the treadmill and being so far in the background you can't see it.

Yeah, I pretty quickly decided I wanted to have Sonia and Daryl hang around and sort of become fixtures of things, at least for the time being.

And yeah, it did come up that Daryl was trans. Pretty much was something I mostly decided on in the moment since I kind of regretted having Gold Rush be a girl in the filler that first brought it up, but I think it's given me a pretty clear idea of the character and am enjoying some of the stuff coming out of it.

Not entirely sure how much focus Sareena and Misty are really going to get in this chapter if I'm being honest? They do have some pages focused on them after this - actually the other day wrote a script involving this lot for a few pages from now - and will be delving into this whole Daryl and Sonia thing, but there were ideas for a more involved subplot with them in this chapter that I decided to shelf for now.

I dunno, we'll see how that shakes out but do hope everyone enjoys this one.
