Rude, Soli! Very rude.
Also rude: yes, boss is dead. Sorry! : Usually I’d just leave it ambiguous since it’s not an incredibly important story detail, but I already had an explanation in my head and some people were wondering so:
Logistics-wise, he gets the kids and starts heading downstairs with them right when the soldiers bust in. They tell him to halt, he tells the kids to scatter, etc.
It’s possible that they wouldn’t have shot him if he had just surrendered, but what can you do! The plus side is that Soli and co. probably owe some of their luck to the fact that the soldiers are distracted…
Anyways, second-to-last page tomorrow. I could probably also put the last page up tomorrow too, but it seems nicer pacing-wise to leave it till Monday… depends on when I finish up the colors for tomorrow’s page I guess. Leaning towards conclusion on Monday though. See you tomorrow!
