AH! Finally! Jenny, we were looking forward to ya. ^^

Jenny Sonrow, eight-year-old super-speedster. Anyone who knows my artwork knows I love cute, so putting a sweet and cheery little girl into this story was just about inevitable. Tried to give her a few distinctions from the many others I've written over the years, though. Hope you'll enjoy. ^^

Andy looks weird again in the first panel. I think it took me a while to draw him facing left. I've checked and it's fixed the next time he does it.

There was a last minute change to Jenny's eye color here, but I think I might just avoid mentioing the reason behind it so I can goad Martin into commenting. ^^

Yeah, in all of the practice drawings and comics and the like, Jenny's eyes were blue, her skin was lighter, and her hair was more vibrant.

There are a few reasons for the changes - I thought blond hair and brown eyes would look a bit more unique, for one, and there are two other blond-haired, blue-eyed members of the group. I didn't come up with the original colors of the lot I don't think, their costumes aside, but generally kept to one look other than her.

Actually, funny enough in redesigning costumes Jenny had the most drastic change too. Sort of strange.

Anyway, as for the skin, the implication was supposed to be that she has a tan from spending plenty of time outside, and possibly that she's somewhat hispanic. The main purpose of it, though, was to add a small bit more variety to things.
