I enjoyed this page a lot. Itís always fun giving the foreground to a number of characters who donít normally get so many lines. Devonís ďcostumeĒ may actually be my favorite one to draw so far. It can be a chore to make sure the bandages (or toilet paper) line up in the appropriate direction, but I feel like the end result is so worth it.
Rob and Drew, being best buddies, decided to compete a little as ninja and pirate respectively. In Drewís case, I donít personally understand what constitutes a ďgay pirateĒ, but this scene is loosely based on a real incident at a real Halloween party in which a straight friend of mine was dressed as a pirate and was thought to be a ďgay pirateĒ by many people. Again, I donít really know what aspect caused this confusion, but I guess thatís just teenagers for you. Anyway, said theme fits well in the story, so I slapped it in here.
Then thereís Chase. Who the hell is he? Apparently, heís Emilyís boyfriend (at least, Iím really hoping thatís apparent by the last panel). But what kind of guy is he? You know, besides a much taller and seemingly older guy. The two of them together represent a popular couple costume choice of devil and angel.
And I canít even begin to list all of the ironic points in thereÖ
