THERE! Alex isn't wearing that cast anymore! GOD! It's been 2 years and six months since he put that cast on, and every other page I forgot to draw it or had it on the wrong hand and I would have to edit it back in and gaahhhh... ^^ But it's gone now. It's gone. Never wearing it again.

But seriously, we did want to have him get it removed in Blues, since we wanted him to get something from it.... Heh. Without even realizing it I also had that be the hand he shakes Grant with and uses to wave at the kids.

Gradients on the sky just look sooo great here. ^^ I love how that last panel is dark but still looks comforting and fun. Martin did a great job with this.

In wanting to change the name of the city also kinda wanna show off more of it. Well, partly that, partly we're trying to make the backgrounds more involved. Little stuff like giving the park a name, ect, all kinda go a way to give it more of a presence.

I honestly didn't realize just how long the cast had stuck around for. Yeah, pretty overdue ditching that - Alex picked it up all the way back in chapter 12 of WaR and it's recently started chapter 18. Granted he doesn't have it in that but you get my point. Actually funny enough had had it so long that in one panel Adam initially accidentally drew him with it.

This might be Alex's last page in the chapter, not really sure - admittedly the chapter's last few pages haven't quite been scripted yet though either way we are definitely in the home stretch.

I like how almost nothing seems to phase Alex on this kind of thing. Momentary surprised silence and that's it, no real freaking out over a little girl suddenly shooting tentacles out of her eyes. Not a lot phases him.

Speaking of though... I suggest even if you don't regularly read Wright as Rayne checking it out on Monday. There's some big world-building in that page that has ramifications on Blues as much as anything and might serve to answer some questions I'm sure a lot of you have.

Alex's lack of response to Lenore shows another part of who he is, wonder what's going to happen next.
