Heheh... Yeah, now that I'm back we're getting to the chapter now. Hope everyone enjoys, it's a pretty different and simple one. ^^

This page kinda nicely sums up the idea of this chapter; it's just a series of vignettes about different characters spending time with their loved ones on Christmas. None of these particular characters will be part of it but eh.

Was good seeing all of these folks again. My favorite was Rin and his grandma; it's always neat to see characters who were helped by the heroes getting a better future because of it. ^^ Especially when it's been far back enough that it's cool to see them in the new art style. Speaking of, Arc. ..... Doesn't count much since we don't get a good look at him from that angle.

Also love getting to see Christina as the cool big sister. She's even trying not to smoke in front of her younger siblings, substituting it with a candy cane.

All I got, I think. For the record, Lillian's dorky Christmas sweater was in the script, just to make absolutely sure it wasn't forgotten about. ^^

For a looooong time, a lot longer than the comic's actually been running, the plan for the Christmas chapter was to have a sort of quiet, introspective thing with Alex, Lillian, and Sarabeth just spending the evening together. Obviously given the way events in the comic have shaken out, that's not what's happening.

So long as we're talking about earlier plans for things though, originally this page had a couple of panels centered on Laura; that ended up being spun off into its own page pretty much entirely to give us a little extra leeway in regards to how much Adam's troubles set us behind on production, kind of have a couple of easy pages after this one to get back into the groove of things.

Speaking of this page was done while Adam was away from his computer if it looks off any - kind of just a consequence from the situation, adjusted for it as possible but the dimensions on the laptop he was stuck with using were a bit off so if things look a little strange anywhere that's why.

This is all you get in this chapter of these various characters; at a point there was an idea in place to touch in with Patricia again later on, but the chapter was coming out kind of longer than I wanted to and it was a largely pointless scene so I decided to just limit her to this, especially since she already turned up in the previous chapter anyway.

Do hope that everyone enjoys this one on the whole though, there's a lot I'm happy with here.
