I just realized based on how everyone reacted to the previous page that this one will probably feel quite anticlimatic. This sequence of events is important to the story, though.

I also just realized I lost a good opportunity to delay this chapter a week so that the previous page would’ve been uploaded today. It would’ve been so cool to have that as a Halloween update, haha.

This is a somewhat wordy page. My choice of font size was originally based on the fact that I expect this comic’s pages to have very little text, but every once in while I think I could’ve made it a wee bit smaller. That of course would probably require me to upload bigger images for the sake of readability, but that wouldn’t be a problem.

Hey Owen... Are you gonna tell your friend Ryan about the hyper-relevant and deeply concerning hallucination you just had?

Maybe, maybe he has a really good reason not to talk about it.

Or maybe he just likes to keep things for himself for no particular reason. It could go either way.

Have no fear, I trust you. I mean, I suspected that he had a reason from the beginning, too.

"I thought I, uhh...saw something, something disturbing, but I'm not gonna go into detail because where's the fun in that"

That page remembered me how much easier writing prose is than making comics. In the novella I could just straight up point out why Owen’s hesitant to talk about what he saw, by describing his thoughts. Of course, I could use thought bubbles, but I think they are rather cheesy and should be avoided, specially for more serious comics. I’m even starting to regret having used them a couple times in the past.

Maybe the next couple pages will make it clear(?). I’m not sure.

Scott Pilgrim's "anime approach" to displaying thoughts was pretty good.
