Everyone, the cast page's finally been updated! Go take a look! ^^

Yeah, so Jake avoids the more serious aspect of the Qure situation, namely "He's also in a coma." This feels a bit out of character since while Jake tends to cushion blows, he doesn't hide anything from the kids either and will let them know the hard truths (like that discussion about killing in Blue vs. Green). If you're curious on it being out of character, reason is that the kids all have their parents coming to visit and Jake doesn't want to have that hanging over their heads. He'll likely tell them the full story later.

I get the feeling that's a really, really last-minute decision on his part. Look at him in the second panel, he's not even looking Jenny in the face, still wondering how he should break this.

Something a couple of fans have pointed out is that the proportions of the kids have been a bit too tiny; at points Lore almost seems like she's knee-high. Making a slight effort to give them a bit of a height boost here to seem less minuscule, but hopefully not distractingly so. Stuff like this is usually a gradual slope for us in terms of art.

Not sure how much I've got to say on this one offhand, but do like how it came out. Do think it's a good show of a little bit more... vulnerable, maybe, a side of Jake, where he has something really eating at him.

So yeah, another day spent with the kids' parents like back in Blue Bloodlines. Won't really be the principal focus this time around, but we do have some stuff planned with that and some new things we'll be seeing on the parent side of things when we get there. This chapter, mixed with the very old art, being why the parents were left out of redesigning the cast page for now - we've not seen much of them anyway and they'll be getting upgraded art soon so probably wait and add them after this one's finished with.
