When I was coloring this comic, I noticed that the standard colors of Chapel’s nightgown – pale yellow and pink – are basically Marzia’s signature colors! So I decided to color Marzia’s pajamas blue, which is one of Chapel’s favorite colors to wear. This is a great technique that some cartoonists use to show when one character is adopting the traits of another character: they’ll start to wear the signature colors of that character. A book that uses this idea really effectively is my favorite-ever graphic novel, David Mazzuchelli’s Asterios Polyp.
Also, seeing Chapel’s hair all spread out in the last panel, we can finally understand how she gets her magnificent bedhead.

The League of Fonts
THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League?
