Well, thanks a lot, Sakurai! After that Direct I can already tell I'm not gonna do jack tonight besides play Fire Emblem! Just... Man-Dragon-Avatar. Must have Fates....

Anyway, yeah, moving on through this chapter.... ^^ That sword is something we showed waaaaaay back in Chapter 1....

Yeah, been meaning to bring that up for a long time, but only just now getting to it. Is a story to it, but we'll be waiting a while on it. Just more hints that Jake's past is... detailed.

Originally the new costumes were gonna wait until several chapters down the line to be used in the comic... But over the course of Blue vs. Green we got to draw all six of the kids in their old costumes for the first time in a while and... yeah, we kinda realized it was time to switch it up. The designs were really starting to show their age. Design-work has really improved over the years and between the old costumes looking, in retrospect, really crummy, and the new costumes we finally landed on looking so awesome, we wanted to get right to it.

I think part of the reason I opened on Jenny and Nicky is because usually they don't get that much to do, so wanted to give them a bit more focus. Liked Nicky opening his costume right away, too. ^^

Kind of surprised Adam didn't mention the little callback to the boar in the previous chapter. Though then again, maybe was saving it for me, was my idea. Thought it'd be a cute little thing and a nice kind of Pet the Dog sort of gesture on Spencer's part.

Yeah, won't be long at all before we see the new costumes - think just two or three pages actually. If nothing else you can tell from this one that Nicky's is still red; really most of them, though not all, kept a similar sort of look, just modified in some capacity.

The lines look oddly shaky on this page in places, dunno what the deal with that is. Seems like something in the coloring causing it. Eh, I think I tend to look more closely at these things than I should, maybe isn't that noticeable.

Spencer gave them their new costumes, this reminds me of how Day was the one who gave Sareena and Misty their costumes, wonder what's going to happen next.

.... Wow. Good point. That... That actually wasn't intentional.
