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.
