Page 27 always seems important to me, since the first issue of my first comic, Broken Space, ran to 27 pages. I’ve long since given up feeling guilty about them running longer, though.

Still playing with the saturation and brightness; there’s less “drain” on this page than when underground, but it’s still noticeable. The slightly muted colors are just easier to look at, though it’s supposed to be a “night time” effect (it’s just after sunset when Anthem arrives).

I know I shouldn’t laugh at my own attempts at wit, but Anthem handing Arduna her hat like he’s a footman, and Arduna just tossing it under the bar like a bad peanut, makes me smile.
