In my detailed synopsis of the SN8X story, Eddie’s first class on his first day to school as a Satan Ninja was one of the more basic ones, like Math or English. The teacher would’ve asked Eddie to removed his silly attire, and when Ed awkwardly refused, he would’ve been sent to the vice-principal's office. Then, as Eddie is trying to explain his bizarre situation to the vice-principal, the werewolf demon would’ve suddenly busted through a window/wall of the office. Eddie and the werewolf demon would’ve then battled their way through the school and into the gymnasium, interrupting gym class.

But when I began to write the actual script for this issue, it became clear that we had way too much content we wanted to squeeze into it. So one of the things I changed to speed up the pace was have gym be Eddie’s first class, and have the werewolf bust out and attack right then and there.

That's a bit of a pity - I like your original idea... but indeed, it sounds like at least 2 more pages.

Edit: Was there a change in artwork? I think it looks different from before.

The art looks a little different because Jessica was trying to experiment with a slightly more sketchy style to see if she could get the page done faster than normal.

So that's it. Well, I'd say it would be mostly fine but panel 6 looks noticeably more sketchy in comparison with the artwork in previous pages.

Oh, with that panel in particular, Jessica decided to keep it sketchier because it helps illustrate just how disturbed Veronica is in that moment.

*ggg* OK, that didn't work (better than clean lines) for me, especially because of her shirt.

The werewolf demon underlit with that pink neon glow looks great. And the face it's pulling in the last panel. So do the girl's stretching poses.

Yeah, I'm a big fan of the stretching babes.

Nothing unusual to see here! Just a random werewolf appearing out of nowhere! Business as usual. :-D

Yeah, I'm sure we all had similar experiences in high school. All part of growing up.

What's that? I can't quite hear you. ::runs to the edge of the ring, twirls hand in the air, then cups ear::
