Yeah, so just some more details into what's happening and why. I sorta agonized over how often they should have these examination days; I was originally thinking three months but wanted it to be sort of alarmingly often so settled with two. Green light for it was Martin explaining that WaR has been running for less than two months in-universe.

.... Yeah, I know, it's been years, but webcomic timescales are just like that. Work with us, here.

So yeah, did enjoy getting to see bits like this between the kids; in particular I liked seeing Guy again. And Miss Su. ^^ That shirt she's wearing is of the 80s Slasher Movie Sleepaway Camp; Su is supposed to be a big fan of horror movies and was a great touch Martin added in post.

Kinda wanted to do more with her in this chapter; have some gags displaying that she enjoyed having a day off just as much as the kids do (and probably spent it the same ways they were).

Actually supposed to be a Beware: Children at Play shirt, but same difference.

But yeah, not sure what I've got to say on this one, though like how it came out. One sort of accidental theme of sorts with this chapter is putting people in too much green; in Jenny's case it's because of trying to color coordinate her shorts, hair tie things, and shoes with her shirt, but also something with Grant and Nicky just by coincidence. Though plan to recolor Nicky to have the color scheme he had on the cover before the pages with him actually go up, so just be her and Grant. And Guy's gloves I guess.

Don't think I mentioned Lore's bow last time. Yeah, main reason for the change to pink is just I wanted a change of pace, so I figure Lori maybe got her a new one offscreen at some point.
