20091103 – Captioned, finally. Putting “expulsion” on page three of said segment sets the tone for the offset of captions for all remaining chapters – due to some quirk of layouts, no first page of the “back four” lends itself well to a bottom-right chapter title. With the same happening in expulsion, the whole thing is consistent! :D Consistent, and subtly different. Yay!

20091121 (2) – Drawn and assembled yesterday, shaded early this afternoon. Haven’t finalized it just yet – it’ll be the next page or the page after that before I’ll know that this shading scheme has shaken out and will do the job. It looks dark (and good) on a mac, but it’s probably going to be MUD! on PC gamma.

~1929 – Lettered about an hour ago. What a nutbuster.

20091124 ~1430 (3) – Did some additional tweaking over the weekend to compensate for adjustments made to Yang’s dialogue over the next few pages. No art changes, just text.
