It has been 140 pages since they last met––coincidentally, this page marks page 150 of Long John overall!––and it seems a lot has changed.

This is kind of one of “the” moments of the story––the moment when Long John and Hellrider Jackie meet again. Personally, it was a lot of pressure and another instance where a lot of drafts of this conversation were written, scrapped, written, and rewritten.

Things get intense from here. I’m going to shut up and let the next scene do the talking.

The thumbnails for pages 22 and 23. They ended up pretty much unchanged. (Click for larger image.)
