Jeez... Grant came out adorable in this one...

I kinda like that as the chapter goes on, Jake is bothered less and less by the kids being exposed to Vespi's life as a pixie. At first he was trying to keep her from telling the kids who she was, but now he's calling her pulling them into her realm as "not the worst idea." I think once he realized the kids would react to it alright he stopped objecting beyond being found out.

Speaking of, erm... I did want to include a scene where Jake got to interact with his Mom a bit but that got cut because we're way past this chapter being a manageable length so last thing we needed was more. It was also the hardest of the kids' relationships to write because of how Grant probably acts around his mom... Helps that it doesn't feel out of character for her to have left early. There are plans to explore his home-life more down the road.

To answer Grant's question since Vespi got caught off, dragons do exist in this world and I don't know how or when but they're going to show up in the comic. Blues is sort of a repository of everything I love and I'm a big fan of dragons, so eventually some dragons are going to show up in some way or form. It's only a matter of time.

We see Guy's mom again. I kinda wanted to get a better look at her just to establish more closely that she's Korean. Also a huge missed opportunity is we never got to see Lenore's parents... Meant to put them in just didn't get the chance. Maybe next time since I've got a good idea of what they're like.

Yeah, pretty happy with this one. Kind of raises more questions than it answers, but do like getting to delve a little deeper into stuff like this. Naturally the plan is to go further down that hole later on down the line.

Like Adam said, this chapter has had a good bit of fat trimming done on it. Kind of says something because it's still as of this page tied for the second longest chapter and it ends up the longest by the time it's finished. At a point Adam was thinking it would for sure pass 60 pages, though it didn't actually wind up quite that long in practice.

Not sure what else I've got offhand but do hope everyone enjoys. The idea mentioned here that Jake has seen and experienced a lot of strange things in his time is also something we later want to go further into. Jake's got a whoooole lot of backstory that hasn't been touched on to date.

Jake's clearly seen more things in his 30+ years then most people see in their entire lifetime, looking forward to learning more about this.
