So, I DO have a new, working scanner at this point... but I didn't know for sure that I would by now when I drew this. Thus, this is another hastily bashed out one that I did right before the bug-infested scanner got tossed. I mention this to explain why it's kinda... rough. I had to do a LOT of post-scanning editing, and I'm still not all that pleased with the line art here. Also, I REALLY feel stupid for not including some wacky, possibly messed up TV show for Trigger to be watching. We've gone WAY too long without a funny background event like that!

All that aside, there IS something I really like that came out of the "Oh crap, I gotta finish this before I pass out" conditions under which this comic was drawn. originally, Trigger and Jenna's exchange was just the start of a larger, more complicated page... one which I didn't have time to draw that night. Said page had Layla lurking in the background listening, so I threw in the close-up so that this half-page would have some kind of climax to it. And now, it's my favorite part of the whole thing. EVERYONE IS GETTING SO EMOTIONAL AROUND HERE.

Speaking of which, the direction this story has taken surprises even me. The whole reason this "little" arc has dragged out as long as it did was because I didn't want leave Jenna with Megaweapon tormenting her. With that "Oh, I must help this poor girl" motivation in mind, it's interesting that Jenna's somehow ended up as the one kid here who doesn't seem to NEED anybody's help. Everyone else is a wreck, and she's the one doing all the comforting. How'd THAT happen?

Finally, thanks to that new scanner I mentioned, The Killer Station of Deadly Doom is back... again! Go vote and read, this would be an unfortunate point to fall behind on things *knowing laughter*

For the record, if an insect ever lands and messes up your scan as you do it, just take it as a reminder from the insects to you. :x

Insects and scanners aside, can't wait for next Tuesday. (Unless you decide to "cliffhanger" this.)

Layla's going to have a little harder a time clearing her issues up, me thinks.

Good to see that someone took the advice from the announcement on the previous page.
Poor Layla, Jenna seemed to say just the thing to get her to feel miserable about what happened. Still, maybe it'll hasten the time when they make up properly. Which would be a good thing.

Incentive:
IO: Broken record much? That's like the third time you've said that in as many pages.
(And why yes, I can safely taunt the giant killer robot, because I'm not there)

IO is a robot of few words, but he's not afraid to use them as much as he needs to.

EDIT: By the way, sorry I haven't been replying as much lately. The past few weeks have been... tiring, and haven't left much time for such things. I deeply appreciate it every time somebody cares enough about by silly little comic enough to actually talk about it and I hope next week's pages live up to everyone's expectations!

IMPORTANT
Just in case you missed it on Facebook or Twitter, my house has no power. There was a MASSIVE freak storm in DC that knocked out a lot of power, and somehow my neighborhood is actually worse NOW than it was then. If the power comes back on tonight, we should be good by sometime tomorrow morning. If not... I dunno, we'll see. (Wouldn't you know, the power goes out the night was GOING to get some extra pages online, so that we could AVOID this situation)

As I reread the archive, every time I see Blitz logged in as a guest I'm hit by temptation. Specifically, to log off and start leaving comments as:
Blitz (in a box)
Blitz (with a fox)
Blitz (in a house)
Blitz (with a mouse)

Fortunately, I should be able to resist now that it wouldn't be a surprise.

P.S. I wonder how quickly someone will work out the reference?
