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.
@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.
A brief Arim intermission, then back to Annie on page 274.
I thought I should at least mention the risky option if she did return to her natural powers and body permanently.
One more page of reviewing the current situation, then either funnier stuff or update on Arim- or Arim first, then the funnier stuff, I'm not sure which.
Late page because of busy author. Start of chapter 20. Annie-centric and partially Arim-centric chapter.
Last page of the chapter, but this conversation continues through the next few pages.
One page left to the chapter.
Flashback almost over.
Hopefully this seems clever.
Things are going to pick up the next few pages.
Guest starring Mira and Arim in their original packaging.

There's a couple different mentions or trivia things here.
A little late, bogged down with everything. The hardest updates to keep up with are the week before and after Christmas.

I'm not sure when this flashback happens exactly. 25 years ago now would be 1992- BUT the comic started in 2010, and only about eight months have passed in the story. Unless you used the sliding scale method for the date of the comic, that means the comic might be set somewhere in the middle of 2011. So 25 years before that would be 1986.

IF the comic is set in the past, I'd just correct that by having the last few chapters transition ahead to match the end date. There'd be years of their lives in a few chapters.
Continuing with Richard and Jessica in the past.
I don't think I've ever tried to do ice effects before?
The flashback begins! This is one of those parts in the story I've been waiting a long time to reach.
A little late. Just busy with holiday stuff and a bunch of random mini-emergencies, and I didn't get enough of the page done in advance to combat that.
In retrospect, I could have handled the transition of Lucy's clothes between the last two panels here better. She should have either started changing in one of the other panels.
I don't know if this will be totally confusing, or if it makes any sense. Often comics can be a puzzle.

If you notice on the other pages, Arim never hit anyone she was fighting. She dodged, tripped, blocked, and attempted to scare them away. The girls opinion that she wouldn't fight wasn't correct, but they were close to the truth.

In my original version, it was just going to step ahead, and the fight wouldn't be shown. You'd just see Arim broken up, and get an explanation. Arim would mention that she took a picture of the thief with her eyes, and she grabbed her necklace (which you notice in the panel where Zoe punches Arim).

Instead (because I'm trying to stick to 12 page chapters), there's just the fight, and I have her transmitting the picture as kind of a wrap up to the attempt to catch the thief. And you see Grace's necklace in Arim's hand in the last panel.

Last page of the chapter (although not the ending of any of these narratives). Next chapter is mostly about Annie's father, then all of these storylines kind of link together after that.
