The list of pros and cons is meant to be written by Lucy, and therefore, kind of negative. She's meant to be the one in the story to try to motivate Annie into being normal.

I'm glad you decided to show us your other idea! :)

When there were requests to see her change, this was my other idea. I considered cutting this, but it seemed like such a weird idea that would never come up again.

I was going to have more narration listing other crazy things they've done, like rollerskate races, each trying to hold their breath the longest, but the panels seemed too cluttered.

@Lightfoot: Yes, I was talking about what you're referring to in the last paragraph. Thanks for clearing things up :)
@JFP: Thanks.

I understand that wanting to see more. Nudity can bring a lot of complications though. Comics with nudity are often put in the same category as porn comics.

Or you mean a mistake on this page? I mean maybe you could or should see something from her left breast on panel 9. But I figured the shirt pushed everything out of alignment and she's probably pointing sideways.

I almost removed panel three. This the first time Annie's mother has appeared in the present day (she's been in flashbacks before), and I wasn't sure if she needed more of an introduction. She probably though won't be fully introduced until after the big sleepwalker arc that starts in the next chapter (in a few pages).

I'm not sure why she hasn't appeared yet. But I've changed my mind over the years about who she is in the present day. Is she a civilian, a superhero trainer, a scientist, or a superhero herself?

I specifically make sure in Richard's flashback story, it didn't rule out any but that she probably wasn't a civilian.

This page probably rules out my older plan, that she was a trainer who had lie detector powers. Unless she knows that Annie is lying and is letting it go.

Annie did say previously that her mother's side of the family had psychic powers.

My only complaint is the lack of nipples. Otherwise, your comic is brilliant.
Possibly the page in the series with the most panels so far.

I've always gotten complains you never see her change, it's always happened between panels. So this seemed like a logical way to show it.

I don't know if it needs the dialog in the lower panels (other than the last panel), but it seemed like it was missing something without any dialog.
@JFP: Thanks!
@dracone: Or they are setting up a contest they don't expect anyone could win?
The Jungle Girl costume part of the story isn't over, but the payoff doesn't happen right away.

This comic just gets better and better!
That sounds like they just want women to objectify themselves to me
I don't know if anyone remembers the comic book store from page 109. I hadn't intended them to not appear again for 165 pages. Sometimes when you're planning things, you misjudge scale.
@Lightfoot: Arim and her her sister didn't get a whole lot of screen time that informed on their mindsets, it probably would helped if their was a one-off page where one of them was getting a hand or something fixed along with a comment about never really needing replacements.

As it stands, the two came off as having pretty shallow personalities, to me at least. It's pretty character building to have someone be adamant about not wanting parts of their body replaced when they're shown to have mechanical parts.
@dracone: About Arim not wanting to replace her body (a twist in the story)? Or about Lucy's legs (something if you didn't remember it's probably my fault)?

Back to Annie's part of the story next week.
Well, I didn't see that coming
A brief Arim intermission, then back to Annie on page 274.

He must think it could be serious if he's telling her to go talk with her mom
