Chapter 8, A Voice in the Dark - November 14, 2018


Commentary for November 14, 2018:

I know I said I hadnít done much to change the briefing room, and itís true. But working on these pages has made me consider it. Itís a big room, with a big table and doing shots of characters sat all around it is tricky, to say nothing of fitting in all their dialogue. I had to re-jig the word balloons on both this page and the previous one to make it easier to follow the conversation, without anyoneís face being hidden. Making comics is fun, but it ainít half tricky.

Anyway, this page finally establishes what some long-time readers may have been wondering up until now. Who the heck won the presidential election that was coming up during the first story arc in chapters 1 through 7? We knew there three candidates, but it realistically only came down to two of them: Harry Neverman of the Libertarian-Conservatives and Sally Acorn of the Liberal-Progressives. We never really got a chance to look in on the Acorn campaign, but we got a good (or rather, bad) taste of Nevermanís in Chapter 3, where he was pretty convinced he had the election in the bag.

Oh, oops! Looks like he was wrong.

Sallyís come a long way from her days as a Freedom Fighter, ne?

I did consider having President Acorn make an appearance in this chapter, but I didnít think it was necessary for her to attend this briefing. Heads of state have busy schedules and they donít to personally sign off on every single military assignment. A rescue mission like this is something Sally Acorn would, I think, take a interest in; but itís something she can leave in the hands of the military, rather than personally giving the orders. Donít worry, Sally fans. Sheís going to be in Chapter 9.

(For the record, Sally Acornís inclusion as a regular character in Eonís World is part of a major retcon to the series, following an incident over the summer in which it became necessary for me to remove a long established OC. Thatís also part of why I canít just upload all the old comic pages for 1.0 without remastering them, because I need to replace that OC with Sally and adjust the story accordingly. Iíve done pretty well with the first 150 pages of the remaster, which sees Sally right the way through to being elected President of Meridia, so I do feel as if Iíve established her in Eonís World well enough. But I would very much like to get the rest of the remaster done. Itís hard to juggle that and 2.0, though. Iím just thankful the OC who she has now replaced only made two appearances in 2.0, both of which were easily revised.)
