The “remastering pages for the trade-paperback edition” process ran from the start of chapter 1 to the end of chapter 26 (plus all the interludes, so everything in volumes 1-7).

I exported new copies of all the pages, and I updated all the comic posts…except, for some reason, this one. The original post still has the original, unaltered version. Maybe I forgot that I re-drew any part of it at all? With most of the figures as black silhouettes, and barely any background, there was so little drawn in the first place…

The remastered page did exist, though. Very slightly re-shaded. It ended up in the original Volume 2.

This version is the page that got updated again for the Master’s Edition. I wanted more shine on the windows, and more stark contrast in the rain.

Jany: You knew about this all along! You approved this! How long were you planning on keeping it from me? Did you think I wouldn’t care, is that it? Or were you just hoping I’d never find out?

Jany’s Mum: Listen to you! It’s not as if she can get sick from it, or hurt, or —

Jany: Stop making excuses! That you dared let Kara Lynn go on thinking I had ordered her to — !

Jany’s Mum: That’s enough! I don’t know what’s gotten into you! The mouth on you these days! Your grandparents never could have saved enough to come here without that money to count on! And now! How do you think we afford your posh school, hm? Your brother in uni — were you thinking maybe they gave him a scholarship?

Jany’s Dad: Listen to your mother, dear.
