Pages like this are why we can’t have nice things like buffers. I just lacked the heart to split it into two pages as it would mess with my (dubious) sense of aesthetic in having the transition panel. And we have to have somewhere to put all dubiously legible spoilers.

The next pageย is half a page, but it has 13 panels, so that isn’t helping too much.

I did play around a bit with how F-10 looks in the last panel, as its something I’ve been thinking about for a long time, exactly how it would look, in the end, the changes are pretty minor, but it is probably enough. I’m not that tied to the exact details of appearance vs artistic license (as evidence by hair and scarf length everywhere) but also wanted to do as much as I could with just with style and expression.
