Author Notes

10/2/2022, 12:04 PM I'm really proud of this strip, too, it came out way better than I was expecting.

Also remember how I said I was introducing 8 characters in this arc? I lied. I'm introducing 9. I wasn't necessarily planning on introducing Carter Erdlar in this arc, but I really wanted to, so as soon as I came up with an idea that included him, I had to act on it. Honestly I think he turned out pretty well.

Nice to see Carter here. Look at him here with his cool sneakers and socks. I just love his design a lot. Poor dude had to wait three weeks to get a response. His and Darren's relationship is cute.

I also really love Darren rubbing Kenzie's head in reassurance in that second to last panel. It's just adorable to me. And then Kenzie's expression in the last panel! Ah, really good stuff, man.

10/2/2022, 12:34 PM Aww, thanks! Carter's fun to draw, and now that I've kinda mentally established that he's got a bit of a snarky side, he's actually pretty fun to write, too. And the head rub is adorable! Darren can be a good brother sometimes.
