Today. Is a big day.
Old fans of the comic will recognized (and possibly be a little scared) the new character appearing above, none other than Emory. Her entrance is a slight homage to the original comic, which in itself was a nod to all the Final Fantasy games I was so obsessed with in my youth. In any event, redesigning her was a whole ton of fun and I’m excited she’s finally arrived to wreak the havoc we all love her for.
Tal might be less excited…
Fun fact: Though not super visible in this update, Emory’s sword has a lot of graffiti she’s painted on the end, prominently the tag “All Smiles”, which of course is the name of the blade X)
New character reveals aside, we get a bit more to the thick of the episode with Rain and Tal’s exchange. Tal’s been pretty willing to decimate herself to get what she wants, and it’s taking it’s toll. Rain’s sentiment was tricky to write…I don’t want him to come off as preachy but rather just…determined to stay true to himself. We’ll see how that all pans out for him, but hopefully the exchange read clearly x)
And LASTLY…an announcement about the next update. We are perilously close to the end of this chapter, and rather than divide it up I’d like to get the remaining pages all finished and post them in one go. That’s a good deal more than a single update’s worth of content, so I’m going to be updating four weeks from today on 09/18/14. A bit of longer wait but I feel like it’s gonna be worth it :3
In the meantime, I’ll be posting some of the making of content for Emory that I’ve been sitting on over at the The leveL Tumblr which, if you aren’t following, you should be following.
See you all in Septermber!
