So, this was a deceptively difficult page to draw, mostly because I went and drastically changed it on the fly. In the rough draft, Ichabod and Tabitha were going to be the ones in the foreground, with Layla and Alphonse just being a Humorous Background Event. But then I realized, regardless of who's actually talking for most of this, that cute stuff was the truly entertaining bit. And it's hardly the first time Alphonse helped keep us distracted from boring exposition. (Also, there's the little bit about me realizing that the original blocking would have been REALLY hard to pull off, especially with one of the speakers being "inside" a big computer screen). Also, I had to go and come down with a cold, and amazingly enough, I don't work well or fast when my head's overflowing with mucus.

Now, I'm SURE there's a lot of questions left about what the heck Alphonse is actually doing here, or how. To save us all some time, I'll just go ahead and say that there WILL be more explanations next Tuesday. I'm not gonna say much about the details until I've had a chance to finish up those upcoming pages (Nobody wants to read a page where I just repeat what I already said in the previous page's comments, right?)

Also, there's a new Killer Station of Deadly Doom in which THINGS HAPPEN!

manipulate computers...Like...Getting admisitrator access I suppose. More or less how I thought he worked:
For those less savvy in computers, he's like a navi from Megaman Battle Network, basically.

Blitz; cashing on cuteness before it's mainstream. (Wait)

On that note, I agree with the swap of foreground and background. Many a good comic/show with a decent sense of humour knows that the irrelevant is more entertaining than the serious.

Meaning the serious goes on anyway but the focus on the unimportant but funny reminds us to enjoy the comic/show, rather than the pure philosophical oh-poop-we're-boned.

I'll get back to reading your comic someday, seriously! After school or something!
