RAIN p112 - The Invitation by JocelynSamara RAIN p112 - The Invitation by JocelynSamara

Not much to this page except for the invitation. I originally planned to include more banter between the girls, but there wasnít a lot of room left and I didnít want to block any part of the invitation (several parts are pretty important).

Iím pretty proud of my little haunted house image on the invitation flyer. Yeah, it still sucks and lacks any kind of reasonable, usable architecture, but I think for me (who canít draw stuff like that), it came out pretty well. Besides, if you donít like it, blame Emily; itís supposed to be like SHE drew it anyway.

(Also, long time watchers might recognize those jack o'lantern bullets. ^_^)

She wants a perfect senior year, yet she's inviting everyone in school over? Either she's not very genre savvy or she's got something big up her sleeve...

It's meant to be a cutesy halloween invitation haunted house. That's exactly how it came out. I like it!

As a complete halloween fan, I'm perfectly okay with the page being just a flyer. And for plot purposes, it pretty much states the message right there without Emily having to explain anything. Though it sucks that Emily is sending her cohorts for the amazing task of handing out the flyers, what do you expect. I also enjoy Emily's little haunted house, its like she is trying to make it cool but became kind of nerdy at the same time.

As for your jack o' Lantern bullets, I feel ashamed to ask where they came from. Really sorry about that.

Don't worry, I draw architecture even worse.
Ah, Halloween... I just can't wait to see the kinds of costumes that Rain and co. will be wearing.

...For some reason, Emily's last line sounds a little suspicious to me. It's probably just the wording, but I can't shake this feeling...

You're actually not the first to point this out to me, actually. Still can't believe I missed something like that though. ^^;

Anyway, I'm just going to pretend that the reverse side has an address and a phone number and even a set of directions. ^_^

It's a haunted house.

There's no such thing as unreasonable or unusable. :D

Don't worry about the haunted house; it's supposed to be architecturally unsound! Although... it doesn't look like it could fit the whole student - *taken out by hammerspace ninja*.
Seriously, though, this page shows yet another example of this comic's diversity in formats. Even though the multiple panel style is the one most frequently used (as is standard in comics), there are plenty of examples of no-panel or one-panel ones. It really works for this one, as it brings attention and detail to the invitation.
Also, the dialogue at the bottom of the page reveals a bit about the personality of these three girls. *looks back at character guide to remember their names* Holly seems optimistic, but simple-minded and airheaded. Debbie seems more practical and realistic. Emily sounds manipulative, and she appears to have hidden motives. Might Emily be the next villain of the comic?
As for the invitation, I love how Emily introduces herself as "Senior Valedictorian", a position that we all know is going to go to Rain (at least in the ideal, super-happy ending). Also, Emily must either have a really big house (rich) or St. Hallvard must be a really small school (again, rich). Do we assume that everyone knows Emily's address ('cause she's that popular)? I love the style of the invitation, with that font and those pumpkins. And how she says "Refreshments will be available" instead of "There'll be food!"
On a more serious note: are you missing a "get" in the second line of Emily's second speech bubble?
Anyway, I really like this page. It's getting me pumped for this party (I'll pick up the pizzas!).

Incidentally, someone pointed out the missing word to me already. I fixed it, but I don't necessarily know if it shows up right away. It SHOULD be there by now. Thanks for pointing it out anyway though.

The explanation of the big house will be covered later. The ADDRESS on the other hand, I feel stupid for not adding. Emily is an attention whore, so most of the school (even in other grades) probably know who she is. On the other hand, I doubt many people would know where she lives or anything like that.

Can we pretend the reverse side has an address and phone number with directions? No? Eh... I'll figure something out...

It's cool. The "get" was missing when I was writing my comment, but it was there after I posted it (thanks to moonpuppy4).
As for the address; it's not that big a deal. I mean, while it would have importance within the world of "Rain", its absence really doesn't affect the reader's enjoyment of the page (it's an awesome invite otherwise!). I'm just the kind of person who loves to find nits and pick at them. Plus, this could make excellent fodder for a "Rain Delay"...

Ohh, man. I just recently found a copy of a flyer I drew for a Halloween party I had in 2006. It had silly little chibi characters on it. xD

Ahh, memories. I miss Halloween parties.

Anyway... I wonder what Rain will dress up as for Halloween. o:

Also, I'm ultra interested now in what Randy will wind up wearing to the party.

My personal vote? I wanna see him dress up as Ghaleon from Lunar, the Silver Star.

"Not 'Randy', dear Emily! 'MAGIC EMPEROR RAND M. GUY'"!!! XD

HA HA HA! As much as the very thought of that basically wins the internet forever, I'm actually not using any "character costumes" (save for perhaps a classic, but public domain, monster), much in the same way that I'm not using any product placement. I suppose I could brush it over on the grounds that no one would ever say "Ghaleon", but you know... I like to cover my butt for these sorts of things.

Maybe I'll unofficial art for that one someday though. Right up there Solid Snake Gavin.

On a side note, Randy is one of the few people I still don't have a costume for. Originally, I'd considered Where's Waldo, but denied that one too for the same reason I won't do Ghaleon. -_-

Dr. Ventrarius? What a cool name. And how spectacularly 80's cartoon-like.
