I'm posting Adam's comments, since I had to delete this page and then re-upload it due to a Comic Fury issue that was going on at the time the page was set to go up. Mine will follow in a separate comments.


"So of course they run in fright. They feel threatened and unsure..."

Yeah, Luna is one of my favorite Ponies and Lenore seems like she'd be a big fan of the Dark Is Not Evil moral she encompasses, so just had to work that in. Plus now it gives Lore someone to talk about ponies with.

Again, we see that McCay's pensive freak-out in the bar is having rather long-reaching effects, hurting the sleeping patterns of Stonewall citizens. Not sure if that needed explaining, but figured why not?

Again, we see more hints about Heather knowing about Valerie's other life, and she's clearly put together how it all seemed to start when Lore showed up at the school. This is gonna be explored in detail soon, though do find it funny how much I'm getting out of it when I decided to have Heather find out on a whim.

One plus about doing Manga Studio is how much nicer and easier it is to do the dialog balloons, which would often look crummy after I converted them into monochrome. Look how much smoother and neater Lenore's are; the whole process of coloring the balloons was made way easier.

Y'know, the more I write Lenore, the more I sorta wonder what her deal is. I've got some vague ideas, but I honestly don't know. Something to explore when things come down to it, I guess. After a lot of back-and-forthing on ideas, I've already settled on a power for her that's bound to come up in a later chapter.

.... Though speaking of, the way she looks in Panel 3 isn't part of her powers. That was just a visual choice.

"So we must heighten your allure!"

Heh. After all that, not sure what I have to say here. . . Comic Fury evidently had a lot of issues tonight, as you can see above I had to delete the page and re-post Adam's comments because it was saying when you tried to look at Blues that the comic had been deleted. Naturally that's not the case - we'll be sticking around, don't you worry.

I really need to figure out how to remove the lines in segmented speech balloons in Manga Studio. I alone in that driving me completely nuts? Admittedly, I could probably get it in Paint more easily than I potentially could in MS, assuming it's even possible there. Might need to go through and do that through all of the pages we have sitting. Speaking of, not gotten the chance to do any of those for a few days now - Adam and I should try and see if we can't do more of that tonight or in the morning.

Incidentally, good getting to see Heather in a bit of a change of color scheme for once. I guess she has more than one of those suits; given we've seen she doesn't sleep in that suit of hers, I guess she just scrambled to throw a set of it on without much regard for it matching.

So McCay is keeping everybody awake although I doubt he's doing on purpose at least on a conscience level of things and I'm glad the issues have been resolved.

Eheh... Yeah, hope that's a lot clearer now. ^^
