I just woke up from a weird dream later than I meant to sleep and need to study for a test I really, really don't wanna take tomorrow and... Yeah, I'm not quite as miserable and stressed as you'd think given all that. Feel pretty at peace. ^^

Apparently more than Jake and Su, apparently... Or anyone else in Stonewall. We get a bit of a confirmation that the Blue Gene is keeping the kids safe, though not clear thus far why or how. We'll get a full answer soon on that.

For an answer to the last bit though, McCay is "touching" all the minds in Stonewall to cause this madness. Without being tormented the same as everyone else, the kids are aware enough to feel his touch. Thought it was sorta clear, that's in case it wasn't.

I just love how cute Jenny looks in that last panel. This was a good bit of character from Lenore too. ^^

.... Crap, Lenore's last speech bubble is white... hang on, I'll edit that into the page real quick.

There, fixed.

Drastically overslept myself. And I woke up with a headache and to find that no one bothered making a dinner that's any good. Oddly still doing okay myself.

Really not sure what to say here, though. I did nearly give up on coloring this page entirely I'll say; when I was almost done, Manga Studio completely glitched out for no apparent reason and I lost all of my progress. I still have no idea what caused that and I haven't seen it do something like what happened since - it essentially moved the layer with the colors on it over sharply to the side, then in trying to move it back it only had what all was still visible.

Yeah. I strongly considered throwing the page out entirely and having Adam handle it, and I did mention to him I'd appreciate it if he did so while he was offline, but I wound up deciding to go ahead and do it anyway. Huge pain but at least it wasn't a terribly hard page to color in its own right.

Congratulations, Wolfintina, you got it right. I was impressed by the linear progression of this comic, by the way. On a side note, why is Guy on the Profiles page? Does he become more prominent in later issues or something?

Heheh... Not really, at least there's no plans to make him like that for the moment. When Martin did the character pages he kinda grabbed every single person with a name, Guy included. I do like using Guy as a side-character, just no plans on making him that big.

When Adam said the kids here weren't affected for different reasons that seemed a pretty clear indication that the Blue Gene was protecting them. So this is how McCay meets the kids, how neat, and I wonder if Lenore is going to find out about the super-heroics.

I'm guessing Lenore might have some inkling about Team Blue. I could be wrong, but it's definitely a possibility.

Lenore finding out is something we have to see about. ^^
