End flashback sequence. ^_^
To be fair, some of you have correctly predicted the reason for Maria and Gavin’s “relationship”. Others of you, probably just read the character bios. The rest of you might be surprised… or not? It’s not exactly the most complex logic ever…
Artistic notes: the first panel was a bitch to draw (and I’m still not totally happy with it), but I’m generally pleased with it. Also, I really like drawing Debbie (the spectacled girl in panel 3) for some reason; I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I think it’s just that she’s so different from the other characters in design, that it makes her fun to draw. The second to last panel is also quite noteworthy. The “Maria Raspberry” and especially the “Happy Gavin” faces crack me up.
