Jen explained Walker’s electrical horn in the last chapter. I deliberately established it back then so I wouldn’t need to shove in a quick explanation during the big battle.

CCXXXIII: Not on Her Watch

When I started Phase Three, I wrote down a few “rules” that I should follow to avoid some of the pitfalls I fell into in Phase Two. One of those rules was “no pages with more than 9 panels.” This page has 19 panels. Oops! Looks like we have a new record holder.

I looked through the catalog of background student characters I built up over the past 10 chapters to select a few to join Ken’s team and made choices that were both obvious and unexpected. Gareth fought on Cass’ side against Keris, but I decided to put him in Ken’s corner. Conversely, Toho was all for inflicting punishment on Dr. Mitchell in Chapter 5, so he seemed a natural choice to go along with Ken’s plan.

This chapter originally launched in November 2015 with this single page. Shortly after posting, I had some serious issues with my ability to complete pages in a timely manner and was unhappy with the overall look of the page.

Eventually I redrew the middle section of the page and improved the backgrounds, adding some subtle textures.

This is the very first time the primary building of Attic High is seen in full. I hadn’t ever designed the complete structure, so the layout was cobbled together from what few exterior shots existed prior to this point, and I attempted to make the building match the established interiors as well. Then I covered almost the entire drawing in snow so you can barely see it. Surprisingly, this ended up being the easiest of all the panels on this page.

For the first time in the series, all 9 members of the current main and supporting casts appear on the same page. (Despite being in different locations.) I purposely held off on gathering everyone together in one place until a dramatically appropriate time. (The only time they’ve been all in the same room thus far in the series was during the Chapter 1 fundraiser.) Phase Two built up the characters with different combinations forming small groups to deal with whatever was going on. Now that the entire school is involved, you can guess where this is headed.
