It’s probably apparent by now, but I’m a sucker for fun scene transitions. I really love making the last sentence of one scene apply in some way to the initial situation of the next scene. Here, I like Pahjan in the flashback telling Bocce he is safe, while the next scene opens with an attack.

I’ve always had issues conveying intense shaking in a visual way. The convention is drawing shaky lines, but sometimes that can look a bit cartoony. I did it in Volume 1, when the bounty hunter ships attacked the Brimia, but I was never really happy with that look. On this page, I wanted to experiment with a blur effect and offset duplicated artwork to convey the shaking. Part of me worries that it will look like a printing error in the physical book, but part of me really likes it as an alternative to shaky lines.
