Author commentary

Veronica: We’re nearing the end of summer vacation.. funny how it seems only two comics will pass before High School kicks into gear. What was even worse was that at the time I drew the eighth grade finale, we were already into the end of July if I remember correctly.. and High School tends to end in the end of June at the LATEST. So yeah.. I had very little time to squeeze summer vacation comics.

This is the first comic where I’m actually beginning to use shades to tell the characters apart. It was weird having Mike be a particularly white character when he’s meant to be grey.. so yeah. Mike gets his shading.. and this is also when I decide to make Blur a blue-violet.. hence why he’s also shaded.

Lucy is gonna use “Hell nyo” a lot during the progression of the whole series.. it sometimes comes out of a habit. Goodness, it was because I was once lurking in a forum and someone responded to a topic with “Hell nyo” when a girl posing as Dejiko posted several images or something. I forget exactly.. but that thoroughly amused me and.. nyeh. Lucy sometimes spouts out a “nyo”.. she used to do that a whole lot more back then.

One amusing bit to add is that I actually did RESEARCH to find what books to have Mike reading. My friend was going to ninth grade at the time and he was made to read “Things Fall Apart”.. so that’s why I chose that as the book for Mike to read. I feel embarrassed because when I went to Honors English in my senior year, I was made to read “Things Fall Apart”.. I don’t know why I was issued it so late yet my friend got it so early in his school! Maybe my school was just stupid.

Shows why Mike got into Daisy’s class and Lucy got into Paulo’s class.
