Ha, I started out typing out the comments for next week's WaR page on this one thanks to getting distracted - setting them up together. Would've spoiled two kind of big revelations in one go if I hadn't caught it.
The whole scan thing was pretty much all something Abe came up with, though do like that touch with it. Might play around with that a bit in the future, if nothing else I do like the idea that somebody out there's taken enough notice of Sareena to label her as a major threat.
And hey, Ana! Yeah, she's full on in main character status now, so besides being in this sequence she also appears throughout the next chapter. Which will be four pages in before we actually see any of our leads, but what can ya do.
Two more pages left to go in this sequence then we'll start chapter twelve, The Fast Life. That chapter's going to be a busy one.
Gonna submit Abe's comments first because that's the way it should be. Here's what he had to say.
"Doesn't this remind you a lot of Dragonball Z? I definetely miss those scanners they used to have even though the Z fighters had a more organic way of tracking and locating people. As for what all those fancy words mean, the simple answer is, absolutely nothing. It's meant to be some sort of secret code that only someone who's wearing the helmet would understand. Of course the bigger bold letters at the end kind of explain it all. In my mind, this was like the equivalent of overly complicated Google search. Which given enough years will be all fonts on the internet. More and more, technology seems a lot like magic. Alaka-Bing."
I really get happy seeing Abe's stuff. Really miss him working on the comic. Were really lucky to have him as long as we did. Also, I love some of the stuff he did with Manga Studio. I wanna know what font he used for that rune-writing in the scan readout.
Sareena and her family's implied magical community stuff is a very interesting concept, though. Can see why Abe's so interested in it. Admittedly, there's something related to it in mind for Blues, though can hardly discuss it now. ^^ Yeah, that's all I got.
When are you going include Ana on the cast page? This is very interesting and amusing.
Was holding off at first for the new main character revelation, but now it's mostly just a matter of needing to first do a full body shot of her as well as the other two in costume having been redesigned and we haven't really had the time. Probably be soon.
