Things were getting just a bit too serious there for a second, so I asked myself what could be the stupidest, most petty complaint anyone could have regarding a Monochrome attack.

NOBODY CAN FIND A PAIR OF MATCHING SOCKS, OH THE HUMANITY. This comic always make me laugh

It really can't be that much of a utopia if they're actually considering executing a little girl to sate the public, no matter what the consequences of her mistake.

@schlissel: Thanks, I'm glad you liked that joke.

@NitztheBloody: First: You're right and the idea that Chroma might be executed is a serious matter even though the reasoning for it is absolutely ridiculous. I'm going for dark humor here. Second: That fanfic is non-canon and I never claimed Jens was right about Elysium anyway. Third: This is centuries before the reign of Queen Juno.

@melaredblu: I'm looking forward to it. Though I'm an adamant believer that utopias are impossible, unless you have a fascist state where contrary opinions aren't allowed (a status quo which historically never lasts), or a populace so simple-minded that they don't have any needs or wants beyond food, shelter, and comfort. (That said, I did enjoy the insinuation in your excellent Juventas story that there might actually be a place that's good through and through, and not just a candy coating over the usual treachery and violence.)

The king said the people would want her executed, not that he did, or would.

@GroovyKinda: If you look up Leopold's birth certificate, you'll see his middle name is Acceptable Losses.

@NitztheBloody: Utopia, to me, is a hyperbole. There's such a thing as a good place, but not a perfect one, because places are shaped by the people who live there. People are not perfect, but they can be good.
I smiled and snickered happily until I got to panel 6 and saw Leopold's drooping ears. Oh, my aching sides! Apparently, his ears are the only ones with that much mobility. Great contrast with the others.
That's a great look of horror on panel 2. Shading, colour, hard shadows and details. Very well done.

@Delta-v: I'm surprised the ear thing was even noticed! But actually, they're all able to do that, as other pages will show. Truth be told, it was while I was in the process of inking this page that I realized there was no reason not to give them expressive ears.

@Hjels: I'm glad you think so! I do wonder if I could have gone even bluer, though. I'm still working on my mood lighting.

@melaredblu: I was going to compliment you on that face too. It's really well done. And the one in panel 4 too.
@melaredblu: SERIOUSLY? Do you think I don't scour each page so I won't be embarrassed by missing something obvious or clever as I used to do so frequently?

@GroovyKinda: That's a good point. I'm just so happy to play with color again that I want to avoid grey as much as humanly possible.

@Delta-v: Believe me, I appreciate very much that you take the time to observe those details.

@GroovyKinda: Considering what King Brunswick just said to Leopold, "trouble" doesn't begin to cover it. But did Chroma overhear all that? I'll never tell...
