Now we see what makes this chapter so icy.

Yeah, expect a lot to be done with the snow thing. Heh, it is the sort of thing that really lends itself well to comics, a lot of different ways you can take it. Naturally it's not something you'll be seeing in our comics a lot though, just by nature of our settings. Though I don't think it hurts to say way down the line there will be at least one set of WaR and BP chapters with it snowing.

Anyway, Blues! Can see at least one new extra there in the background in the first panel - not sure if we've seen the other one before but the brown-haired boy's based off Takeru from Squid Girl. Also we get Alex in Blues! Just not the Alex.

Anyway, yeah. Hopefully everyone likes what all's coming - should be a fun chapter.

Yeah, this chapter's got a lot going on with extras, so seemed fair to add some new ones for the Center. Takeru is a character I oddly liked in Squid Girl and I think I wrote a story once where they took him in to the Center to get examined for a Blue Gene so sorta felt natural. The kid next to him... I drew a picture a while back of a boy abandoned on a curb by his parents and meant to go back and draw him with wealthy foster parents. Never did, but always remembered it, so put that kid in the school to compensate.

Had fun with the other stuff of course. Page was quite a lot of fun looking back; Wanted to see what other pajamas the kids all had (that and after Blues In the Night being so long sorta got sick of drawing them in their old ones), so experimented a bit. I especially like Val's meteor set, Lore's Luna nightgown, and Andy's Lobster-Link getup. Nicky's bottom half here is from a puppy-pajama thing similar to his dinosaur ones.

This sorta puts the pages we're currently doing in contrast. The latest Blues pages have a lot of extras too but they're not nearly as much fun as the ones in the center. Can't speak for Martin, but does get pretty tiresome on my end.

Maybe Guy should eat by himself if he doesn't like being stared at, Stickset is lazy and I wonder how it will take the kids to think of Martina being the cause of the snow.

At first, I thought Lore was talking to Andy.

Power headcanon time! Okay, what if Takeru-clone had bioluminescence as his power, as a callback to that one episode of Squid Girl where everyone thought SG was a ghost when she was just glowing in the dark?

Heheh.... I really like that idea. ^^ Think it could really work. Easier than tentacles.
