I like to think of this as how the beginning of chapter one should have looked. I had to refer back to those pages to get the colors and costume design right and I was pleasantly surprised to see how much better my art on this page is compared to back then. Don't worry though, this chapter isn't just going to rehash that whole scene. I've got something else in mind.

It's really something to see how much you have improved since the first page. This looks really good. Not just the quality of the drawings, but the composition and camera angles are on a much higher level. Can't wait to see what it looks like 112 pages from now. :)

I was thinking the same thing. I'm so glad you went back and redrew it here. It's wonderful to see the improvement in your art.

Hot dang, woman. Have you watched Memento? What you're doing here is sort of like that. Showing the same scene again, with more things revealed. You're quite the talented storyteller.

@Hjels: Thank you! I'll keep trying to improve my work as I go.

@groovykinda: I was wondering if the narration box was too fourth-wall-breaky, but the narrator's always outside the fourth wall anyway. Heck, maybe Randall is the narrator.

@chicken-blast: Aw, thanks! I don't think I've actually seen Memento. I'll have to go and watch it.

Woah! Full circle here! And makes you go check page one and see that indeed your line art has improved.

@hipopotamo: This brief visit to the beginning of the story is exactly why I chose to wait until today to promote the comic in the forums. Here's hoping this new chapter will be better than the last.
