Aaaand we’re back to 7 Nissan, with Page 39, following a long delay caused by me drawing pages 37 and 38, Thanksgiving and some other things. To put this in context with the missed pages, this is the end of the mission briefing. No one has ever asked “any questions” and been met by anything other than dumb stares and blinking. I used an inset panel here to avoid having to draw two pages to show a very simple concept, which is how I originally wrote it in the script. I drew the inset panels in the previous two pages with very little color, so I stayed with that to emphasize the continuity with them — they are all part of the same speech. Hopefully it’s more visually interesting this way and moves the story along more.
Eventually, it’s going to be night time for the purposes of the story, and I am looking forward to that very much, because trying to paint the same blend of yellow and gray for the sky every single time and have it look good is getting to be annoying.
