Looks like Alex isn't the only main character with a new look this week. Yeah, this hair thing will be explained a couple of pages from now. It's probably not a permanent change, though it depends since I do rather like how it looks, but it does have a plot purpose for now that we'll get to then.
That being said - looks like we have a countdown on our hands, and knowledge on just what the secret thing Sareena and Misty have in their future is. When we reach that date in the comic, we'll be dealing with that, but we'll come back to the subject periodically before then; it's still a long while off, but the countdown is on.
Also, this psychological evaluation subject, and a word on Sareena's family having a history of otherworldly travel - it's probably not too hard to take an educated guess on just what the deal is there, but we'll come back to it soon enough.
Incidentally, this page was a fairly late addition. Initially the page after this was the second one, but I backed up and stuck this in due to wanting something quick in here with Hearst - I do kind of like the groove that's sort of been gotten into of most chapters since her introduction having something near the beginning with Sareena and Misty meeting up with her - and wanting to go ahead and bring that subject up sooner rather than later.
Ughhhh... Barely found time to draw this week. Been on a chaotic schedule and cramming on schoolwork. What I have to get to once I've commented.
Yeah, the hair thing was something that was described in the script but I think I was surprised in drawing it how nicely it looks. Misty in particular I rather like, though I think I'd rather see it changed. I rather like that I can draw her without references so would sorta prefer keeping her old style. Then again, by the end of this chapter might have her look down so eh. See how it goes. Up to Martin anyway.
So yeah, not a whole lot else to say on this one. A lot of dialog and... yeah.
This page makes me think of the blurred image on the year 3 preview, looks like they already got dressed for their job with Candace, and I already know what her power is since it's mentioned on your DA pages.
Yeah, not too much of a secret just what it is Candice can do. Will be a few pages before we see that in action, though.
