So yeah, nothing yet on the backstory for Vespi or how Jake met her, but do like introducing her to the kids. ^^ A lot more of that on the way. But don't worry, we will get into details for who exactly Vespi is.

One reason this chapter is so long is because it's mostly made of small, intimate moments, not big world-making ones. I feel like making a group a family kinda requires moments like that, so it's worth taking a break for it sometimes. I dunno, I really hope this isn't too boring for you folks. I don't want to wind up making another chapter like that Examination one, which got samey fast.

This is what I mean about Vespi's southern-ness being hard to write consistently. It's being played up to 11 in this page, while in other ones it's kinda restrained. Really, really hard to keep straight for me.

First off, be sure to swing by on Wednesday, because the next page is actually quite a landmark one for something a long time coming that might well catch some people offguard. Kind of a shame it couldn't wait for the 500th page, but 485 is nothing to scoff at.

Anyway, as for this one. . . I do like the way Vespi's kind of coming across with the way she's being written playing off the kids. Kind of seeing her meeting them on their level and getting on straight with them, while simultaneously not really talking down to them and remaining the adult in the situation. Kind of a tricky line to walk but think Adam's pulling it off pretty well, and it's pretty appropriate to the character as we'll see as the story moves on.

I kind of like the way that the kids' interests sometimes converge or you see one of them doing something usually done by another. It's a neat little thing to mix stuff up and kind of show them rubbing off on each other.

Vespitina... Something tells me we've seen her before the start of this chapter,

She's.... appeared in other works before, just nothing comic-related. ^^
