So, I think we've pretty much established that Su is pretty much the cool teacher.

Heh. Actually the turn this page takes with the hat being hung up was my idea. Adam hit kind of a wall on the rest of the page after the joke about Su collecting on the money and needed something else out of it too, and I suggested having Grant hang the hat from the tree. Think the initial version of the script he sent me did have her taking the hat with her and I suggested having her leave it.

It's kind of weird looking at the pages of Blues going right now given it's the only one of the comics that hasn't made the switch to shading yet. It'll do that on page 300 - eight pages left to go.

Huh, eight? Didn't realize it was that close. Again, the 300th page for Blues isn't that much to write home about. Especially compared to WaR.

Anyway, yeah, joke wound up sorta confused. The idea was that Su was the one who knocked Stickset's hat off, and did so without knowing the kids even had a contest going for it. Not sure how well-conveyed that wound up being.

Either way, really like how Su came out here. Again, love seeing the group in their winter clothes. Grant and Nicky's points on leaving Stickset's hat in a tree were my own reaction to Martin's suggestion, but given how Stickset didn't really pick it up, I'm guessing she was less angry about the hat being damaged and more just about the audacity at throwing snowballs at her.

Did like getting that one moment between Andy and Vincent at least. Don't think Vincent is really evil or a bully, more just he and Andy don't like having the other as a roommate so there's a lot friction. I think if they weren't together they wouldn't fight so much.

I think I was originally gonna have Su give Lenore that hat to use for the snowmen, which I'm kinda sorry didn't happen given it sounds friggin' adorable, but I needed this particular route for something.

OH! Forgot to mention; I'll be at Cyphacon this weekend in my hometown of Lake Charles LA. If, by some miracle, someone in this tiny fanbase is in the area that week, seek me out. Be the idiot with the Ponytail dressed in a Medic costume.

Su knocked her hat off, boy Stickset really is the kind of person everybody hates, and Su saved the kids from Sticksets wrath by pretending she was going to punish them, this page is so funny.

This is why she is everyone's second favorite staff member. The grumpy teddy bear gets first (I mean Jake).
