Author commentary

Veronica: THE SUMMER VACATION ARC!!!!!! Lord was I really looking forward to making this at the time. I had SO MANY IDEAS, SO MANY PLANS.

.. A lot of plans I canned and rewrote, which was honestly a very new thing to me at this stage! For many previous chapters I just drew whatever popped into my head, but by this time I was PLANNING AHEAD!!!!! Which allowed me to figure out what ideas are not worth putting on paper!! Damn!!!

I made literal REFERENCES for characters! I was being a bonafide professional comic arteest..

Also, say goodbye to the grid-comic format! Proper panels are here to stay!

Oliver: This was a complex chapter for the omnibus project. I wanted to integrate the Summer Vacation chapters with the Volume Two ones in terms of style, which was hard enough when Summer Vacation was pencil-shaded… but this particular chapter, “Invitation”, had pencil “inks”! So it required a lot of drawing over to get it up to scratch.

I must say, the “proper paneling” is flippin tight! Looks very well done; nice job.
