RAIN p.63 - Spoiler Warning by JocelynSamara RAIN p.63 - Spoiler Warning by JocelynSamara
(Posting this early because my internet is really fussy tonight, so I'd rather just get the page up while I have then not be able to get online when it's actually time.)

First - [link]
Prev - [link]
Next - [link]

And after two weeks, weíre finally back to the main character.

This is a really odd page. When I finished drawing it, I couldnít help but think what a bold move this was. I debated redoing the whole thing many, many times over the past month and a half since I actually finished this one. But the fact is, this is an incredibly significant pageÖ just, not for the same reason that any of you would probably realize yet. ;)

Iím going to let you guys interpret this one however you choose. Is it blatant foreshadowing? Is it merely a clever distraction to throw you off? Am I toying with you more than you realize? My answer to all of those questions: you tell me. :XD:

What I will tell you - in case you were wondering - the characters in the manga are (from left to right) Kaminari, Aneko and Hokori. You will be hearing the story of ďBlack Wings, KaminariĒ frequently throughout this story. Itís okay if you donít completely follow it or havenít quite gotten the names down yet though. Most of it is going to be told out of order and in choppy snippets after all. Iíll do my best to make sure you can follow along with pretty minimal knowledge of whatís going on though. After all, itís not directly relevant, but it does enhance the experience. ^_^

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

You know what would be cool?  If you turned this into a full on series.  That'd be awesome.  Making another comic that happens to be an in world comic.  I mean, I don't know if you have or not, but you haven't linked to one at all, so I'm guessing you didn't, right?  But anyway, it would be pretty cool.  But I guess you're pretty busy with everything, huh?

That's how it works in real life. Like pokemon or yugioh.

if no one has realized its the same plot as the story itself, they are stupid!

(Playing WindWaker for the passed few days, I think I feel better enough to comment).

I definitely like the foreshadowment you have here. And though I don't know what exactly it means. I'm looking forward to reading more to discover the true answer.

The Kaminari page you have is a great flavor to the story. And I also love how it fits into Rain. If you think of Rain as Kaminari. than Aneko and Hokori are Maria and Gavin. And the way Gavin turned on Rain for her secret is no different than how Hokori betrayed Kaminari for her wings. To me, its actually aamazing to see Rain slowly begin living her favorite manga in some way. Even though sometimes it may feel more real than what some are comfortable with.

I also hope that if this is translated to volumes you have Kaminiri profiles for the extras. Trust me, as a fan I'm willing to learn more about the world of Rain and the manga she reads.

If/when Rain goes to print, I intend to include indepth profiles, plotpoints and even "behind the scenes" info on all of the fake manga (including Black Wings, Kaminari, Halloween Princess Pandora and Mad Giga-Kaizer X). The fact is, I've come up with a LOT more information on the three of these then I'll EVER have time to cover in the main story from relevant parallels, to commentary of real world manga.

I would seriously consider buying a behind the scenes book thing with all the juicy! Behind The Scenes! details and Soundtrack! albums...or maybe a Scott pilgrim style final page in the back of each volume detailing little things every so often...could be a good idea ^^
