Like page I and page XXIX, this page starts the chapter off with a main character silhouetted in bed.

At this point I was struggling to keep UTC on schedule. I took a month-long break, during which I formed a creative partnership with my friend Josh. We both had comics in the works at the time, and we kept ourselves fresh by trading art chores. I inked his comic while he colored mine. Josh colored the rest of the pages in Phase One starting here.

Also during that break, a few more changes were made to how pages were made and published.

I changed the official name of the series from Urgent Transformation Crisis to UTC, re-appropriating “Urgent Transformation Crisis” as a subtitle.

The 6-panel strip format was completely ditched, making this the first chapter whose pages are all identical dimensions.

The word balloons now have more appealing curved pointers.
