The new pages look great. I am a little surprised and how many changes went into them still very nice.

I particulaly like panel 3, she looks REALLY upset!

That said, the blue crying text seems oddly out of place .. dunno why.
Kinda looks more like a small baby crying, than an adult ? It's kinda hard to define.

It does seem off somehow. Maybe because we are used to the vocalizations being in a bubble?

But then you'd have to mix it all up in the word bubbles, and it would become an unholy mess.

The childlike crying text was completely intentional on my part. Calli is meant to come across as much more emotionally fragile. And let's face it, no matter how grown-up someone might be, there are times when "I want my mom" is a pretty powerful impulse. Dolly is very much "Mom" to Calli.

At the risk of being misinterpreted when no frivolity is intended for once....drunken pathologically depressed female crying to the only one she sees as a friend upon hearing the worst of news ? seen it, looked exactly like that. You guys nailed it again.

That off-key detachment COULD work if you were aiming for a Valium subplot (mommy's little helper!). But that subplot would probably end up taking over the narrative, so this is better.

First: I love how in the first three panels you can see Calli progress from shock to sheer emotion. Second: That look on Dolly's face in the last panel is perfect; it looks like she's about to turn large and green. Third: This page is a perfect example of what I was talking about with The Last of Us emotional effect.

The emotions are very palpable! A mother's worst nightmare, and Dolly is determined to fix this!
