This is one of those things where I wish we had more time to fuss around with the page. Some color or different saturation could have helped break up the frames better. Maybe like a diluted red for the map imagery. Ah well, you can only do so much in limited time.
We’re also trying to avoid “!” frames, and yet one surfaced again. Granted, I’d prefer to do this rather than “um” and “uh” cliffhangers.
Prior script point, Jinjo originally was going to try and ask for help and eventually be found by our shadowy newcomer. This was going to add another page of essentially transition and I thought it’d be best just to cut to the chase. We’re 20 pages in and should get things rolling.
In the future we’re probably going to be less indulgent with market scenes like this, with a few exceptions.
