Well, some of you called it. My hope is that when you're reading it straight through you don't have a long time to think "she's going to save Pang." I might have to change that panel on page 173, though, where she's holding Pang's cane, to her still just holding his stuff in general.
I'm in Seattle right now. And this weekend I'll be at Emerald City Comic-Con. If you're attending, come say hi to me at table A-14 in Artist Alley. I'll draw something for you. It might not be very good though. I'm so used to hitting "undo."
