Everyone say hi to the the inspiredly named, Brian! Along with Akila, he more or less rounds out the trifecta of Cleo and her friends. Think Harry, Hermione, and Ron. Or Buffy, Willow and Xander. Which I guess would make Khensu Giles. Or Dumbledore. Actually, McGonagall would make more sense…

ANYHOW, I was actually torn about including this next sequence (it’ll run for a couple weeks) since it’s kind of a hiccup in my pacing for Chapter 2’s third act. But ultimately I left it in because I felt it was important to show a bit of what Brian’s relationship to Cleo is like early on and better explain how Cleo gets from point A to point B. It’ll also give some hints toward the comics’s next story arc.
