I think it’s abundantly clear by now that I like lots of dialogue, but this page has been toned down rather graciously. Originally, I had an entire dialogue in place with Maria telling some funny story, that random boy trying to ask Rain out, and of course, Rain herself just being neurotic. Then a few pages later, I reread this page and thought it sounded AWFUL. So bad in fact, that I just deleted all of the dialogue. With no dialogue bubbles, the “silent” page kinda spoke to. Then the better idea of having Rain narrate over the scene while this short montage of events occurs came to me. And that worked ever so much better.
Pay no mind to the random guy. He really is just that: a random guy. After the death glare Maria gave to him, I wouldn’t blame him he ran right out of this comic altogether. And we may never see him again… ^_^
Or will we…?
Nah. I didn’t care much for his design, so probably not…
