And still in the classroom! We'll be spending a fair bit of the chapter here, though far from exclusively; so far in what I've written and what's been drawn it's shown up a decent bit of the time, but not the majority.
Speaking of, on checking the scripts Walden hasn't actually appeared so far since this page. That's less due to him getting cheated for screentime and more just me not being as far ahead on scripts as I should be; he'll show up again later in this chapter, rest assured.
Relating to that, this short exchange with Walden does have a purpose to the story of the chapter beyond just having some time with him and the two briefly talking, but I'll get into that later when it becomes relevant. Feel free to speculate if you like, and be sure to swing by again on Tuesday!
Yeah, this chapter has a lot of people showing up, come to think of it. Sareena's brothers and Grandpa for one, but also... Well, can't say who all 'cause spoilers, but it's a lot. And that's not even counting the cameos. Includes a few folks I'm eager to draw again. ^^
Speaking of people unexpectedly showing up, why wasn't Laura in the group shot from last week? I guess she was just out of from. That's convenient. Still, I do like that shot in the fifth frame.
Heh... Also, just noticed how Sareena seems to be trying to talk quietly to Walden but he's replying to her with exclamation marks. Maybe that's why he wasn't given a teaching position. "What's that, sis? You've got a rash WHERE? Oh, shaped like Canada, you don't say."
Even though I think I've figured out where this is taking place it's still really confusing and the Wildlands is the world Moon lives in isn't it?
Right. But yeah, this chapter is kind of supposed to just sort of throw you in to work things out. Hopefully things become a bit more clear for you soon.
