Yeah, this page is a little... odd, and probably not quite the best to get the new schedule started. Like with WaR, this page was first written up under the old format, and the desert bits were added in after the fact. Probably better this way, we'll be seeing a lot of the desert in this chapter with a few split-screen pages and it's probably better to establish that from the get-go.
The Sareena & Misty half of this page in particular is probably going to raise some questions. That's setting up the next chapter, just to get that out of the way early, but it also sets up something a little different we'll be seeing starting in the next page.
Hope everyone enjoys, and keeps reading as we move on with our new format and schedule!
This page was pretty damn easy for me to do, panel count aside. ^^ The desert landcape is always pretty easy and here, Martin just put the second panel's image into that ball in post.
As for the left half of the page.... Yeah, again, had an easy time with it, but a lot of fun with Misty's way of sleeping. I think she nodded off playing her Gameboy.
I'm more curious what they're doing in Panel 5. Is Sareena giving her a foot massage?
Is Misty drooling while she's sleeping? When are you going to explain who's talking in the fifth panel? and it sure didn't take long for her to show up.
She's drooling, yeah. The explanation on that will come in the next chapter though; it's mostly just to help to set that up now while the plot gets moving forward, though there is one notable thing that will come out of this in the next page. Be a couple more pages before it's explained why that is, though.
As for our mystery desert watcher, yeah, she's pretty prevalent throughout this chapter. We'll be seeing her again a couple of pages from now.
