This page is exactly as written in the script, but there was a time in between writing and drawing when I thought I should leave a few panels out and put them on the next page. I drew only 7 panels: the top row and bottom row, and left one giant panel in the middle to depict the scene in the principal’s office.

After drawing the panels, the page looked like it was going to be really empty. I divided the middle panel into three asymmetrical ones, and brought back the part that I was going to push to page CCX. I like the way the page ends. I liked it in the first place. There was just a period of doubt in the middle, which just goes to show it’s always possible to overthink your ideas.

Really, all of UTC is one giant lesson about that.
