I like that picture of Maxima in the last panel. Every other picture I have of her up to this point are pinups of her looking tough. One of the things I like about doing an ongoing comic is that it makes me draw stuff like Maxima looking consternated. Sydney has that effect on people I guess.
Oh, and I should say thanks to my girlfriend for inking about half this page. She’s not an artist (yet), but assuming I do clean enough pencils, she can ink them while I work on another page. The problem with working digitally is that final pencil cleanup might as well be the inks, so I tend to do fairly lose pencils. But we’re developing a process that will hopefully yield more than one comic a week. Possibly as many as 1.3 comics per week, hah hah.
