Timelines are a bit hard to keep straight in split storylines. While the order of the rogue (Hiura) story was set, where the different parts could be inserted into the runners (Roka) story was not, so I ended up moving all the rogue bits around quite a bit. This scene was supposed to start with Azarek just having woken up from being knocked out. But then I realized a LOT of time had passed in the runners story, so it would have been weird for him to have been unconscious for that long. Luckily, it was a very easy fix to just have him comment about sitting there neglected for quite some time.

This sequence introduces yet another member of Hiura’s crew, Ozomo. It’s a little bit of a bummer that for her first appearance, she’s obscured repeatedly by the energy bars. I guess I’ll have to make it up to her elsewhere.

As a side note, I’m REALLY happy with the pink tint lighting that Wes did in this sequence. In my own coloring, I haven’t played too much with tints and lighting effects, so in working with more experienced colorists for this volume, I was hoping they’d be able to bring that sort of thing to the book more. And I dare say they have!
