These are actually Adam's comments, just posting them for him here -
Nnn... Damn, I need to pick things up on lineart. We're ahead by one week now. Buffer's trickled down as the time it takes to do each one needlessly expands.
Eh, I'll see what I can do. I feel like I'm a failure in everything BUT the comics lately, so not willing to fall behind... And I guess even if we do it's nice to have never had a delayed update after SEVEN HUNDRED PAGES! WOOO!
.... Sort of. With WaR and BP combined this comes out to 700 pages total, but if we were just going on WaR alone we'd be at 380. But fuckit, all those pages of BP gotta count for something, right? 700, there ya go! ^^
After all the damn cars in the last chapter driving me nuts, Martin did his best to tuck that van of Power's away mostly out of sight in the script of this one. Didn't need to draw this thing, did I?
And to celebrate 700 pages, my computer crashed this morning, everyone around me's being annoying, and this one I'm using instead is lagging up like crazy. Yep, one of those nights. At least that's not likely to cause any problems with the comics, since that's not the computer I used for coloring the pages anyway.
But yeah, sure it was pretty obvious this was just a fake-out to screw with Rin's head. Wasn't really even so much trying to hide that about it honestly, is a reason it's a relatively short bit and all - more just there for some follow-up on both ends as the chapter goes. In particular we'll be sticking with this group for two or three more pages after this.
Yeah, don't see the 700th page as that big a deal given the circumstances of it, so nothing huge this time or anything, though probably wouldn't have been able to fit one in anyway given when it fell in the schedule. So, just settle for that small bit of acknowledgement in the dialogue, and hopefully 800 will be something more special!
