Hey, we finally figure out what the deal is with Flower!
Also this whole White Noise thing, I guess that's a little more pressing. Heh, 250th page sort of came at a good time - kind of was reaching a point where it was sort of time to start bringing the chapter home, and the 250th page happened to be close enough that it made for a good point to get on to the next leg of the story.
We still have a fair bit to go on the chapter, though, so it's not exactly reached the end. Be sure to swing by for Saturday's update for more!
Oh, you forgot to mention a hint on where Sareena's parents are. Maybe. Or the fact that they're not dead, which is a pretty big chance. ... Well, PROBABLY not dead, but it's hard to believe you'd leave a window like that open and make them dead all along. That's why everyone survives when you don't find the body.
But yeah, naturally this page was a pretty big "WHAM" to it. The window behind Edwin/White Noise in the last panel was a last-minute add-in, probably influenced by the fact that it was easier to do than drawing the watchtower again.
You also get to see the hint in Edwin's coloring on the last page. Anyway, from here on it's basically a full-on charge through the climax. Hope you folks'll enjoy.
So Flower's in a coma, and White Noise certainly adds an interesting wrinkle/twist to this already bizarre situation.
Heh. Yeah, we'll get some more details on Flower down the line, but that's the basic situation. Still some weirdness to come out of this situation so be sure to keep reading.
