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.

CCXXXII: Just Get on With It, People

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.

I don’t have much experience drawing bodies tangled in other bodies, so panels 2 and 3 were a challenge. I don’t quite think I got all of their masses properly aligned here. It seems like Kestrel’s torso has been absorbed into Chuck’s stomach.

Walker, the unicorn guy, is a personal friend and a Patreon sponsor who pledged to the “appear in the comic” tier. We worked out an appropriate role for him in the story and I think the character fits in well. It helps to have one more “anchor” character besides Keris for this scene.

Speaking of friendly influences, Keris’ role in this chapter is an extension of her character arc in “New Tricks,” which another friend wrote. It goes to show that even solo projects can benefit from some good contacts with fresh perspectives.

CCXIII: Bad Days Are Here Again

When I was a kid I wanted there to be a day where things in school just went nuts, like they would on television. Shows would have an episode every so often where some disaster or quirky thing would happen that would affect everyone for an episode. The power could go out, or due to flooding everybody would be trapped in one room together, or some other extremely awkward or gimmicky situation. I enjoyed seeing a familiar location get thrown into chaos, because it temporarily pushed aside status quo and caused the characters to behave differently than we’ve ever seen them.

My point is, Flint is literally living his days like this and I’m a little envious of him.
