Lookit all these already-transformed characters we’ve never seen transform.
Just look. No backstories. They’re just appearing for flavor to add to the diversity of the looming fight sequence.
*sobs* What am I even making this comic for.
Drawing Cass from so many different angles resulted in a very uneven design for her face. Throughout Phase Two I struggled with exactly how to draw her half-goat muzzle. (I had come to dislike her dogish snout from Phase One.)
Noah’s troubles were meant to happen in Chapter 3. In my first script for that story, Cass asked Noah to come with her to Morty’s mansion, and there he would go through his blood-shifting. It got cut because it got in the way of the story, and I figured that making Cass AFRAID of Noah seeing her in her goat form would be a more interesting plot.
Here, Noah’s blood-shift proved to be a great opportunity to keep him from helping Cass and the others with the solution to the shrinking problem. I wanted to show that Cass was capable of solving problems herself. In Chapters 4 and 5, she played a significant role, but Noah was really the one to come in and save the day.
I put about one hour’s worth of research into the physics of shrinking and quantum theory to write this page. One hour’s all you get, theoretical science aficionados.
Incidentally, someone in my family is in the medical field, and often gives me some really good advice on how I could have handled the science in these comics better. One of these days I will consult her BEFORE publishing a chapter.
The action figure is based on a Booster Gold figure I own, with the colors reversed.
Things were moving along at a good pace here, but there were quite a few many things that needed moving along, so there’s a lot of scene switching. I could have easily added ten pages to this chapter, what with all of the plot points and characterization I was trying to include. There are fourteen significant characters involved in this story.
Cynthia wasn’t going to look so cute at first, until on a whim I sketched her as if she was a Pokemon, and then I fell in love with the design too much NOT to use it.
