As you can see, I’m still shading the characters even in normal light. This is the first time I’ve done this since page CVI. After the last few dramatic pages, going back to flat color seemed to ruin the visual flow of the story. As the plot has matured, I wanted to continue visually showing dimension on the characters. After comparing the shaded and non-shaded versions of this page, I feel this version is much more compelling and worth the extra touch.

Ken revealed Jen’s “predicament” and made his threat on page CCX. Katsuko witnessed Jen faint there.

Cass and Noah are running because they played it safe and took a detour to a staircase to get back down to ground level. I had a line for this in the script, but this page was dense enough already without that insignificant detail thrown in.

Flint flies (glides) so rarely, I like to make sure that, when he does, it’s a big event. He gets page space.

Drawing Ken’s tumors gave me the most unsettling feeling of anything I’ve drawn in UTC so far (including Dr. Mitchell’s graphic snake transformation). Cancer is very serious, and creating something that looks grotesque but also clean and toony adds an uncanny element.
