Things may get a little intense for some readers in the next few pages.

Tona's little speech here basically boils down to a schoolyard bully's "stop hitting yourself" routine...

This has been a ridiculously difficult series of pages to write. I mean, we all know that Tona's going to terrorize Felicia, but what tone she takes with that... well, it's been anything but set in stone.

BTW: It seems the darker speech bubbles in panel two are not spoken by Tona, but by the man on the left (Felica's dad??)? Because when I wrote my first comment, I was still under the impression that it is Tona saying this.

Yeah, the speech bubble issue was worthy of a fix... done.

OH Shit, that first panel...
... I feel bad for Felicia, but damn if that isn't a great look.

Thanks, Seabiz. Going for the David Koresh/Jim Jones look, because Tona is a monster... but she's our monster.

Damn Ghost. Way to take us to the extreme in just one page. Tona looks deranged in that first panel. She's gonna hurt some people, that's for sure.

Thanks! After much much consideration, deadlines and consideration of my characters has finally provided a path forward on this scene.

Poor Tona. Clearly she's strung up on marionette strings and electrodes, and drugged out on flunitrazepam, so that she actually can't resist the puppeteers making her pick up that knife and say those things, right? I would totally hate it if someone were manipulating my body like that so I was physically powerless to resist them using me in their terrorism.

Exactly.

Felicia is going to have nightmares for months after this. I know this because I'm going to have nightmares.

Are we seeing the stress of working for a madman finally get to Tona? Is this a long-term break from a lifetime of stresses?

Enquiring minds want to know!

It's not clear to me that Felicia has months ahead of her in which to have nightmares...

Eh, if a steady diet of junk food, cigarettes, and scotch hasn't killed Felicia yet, I doubt Tona will be all that lucky.
