This one contains a lot of exposition. I know the saying “show, don’t tell” but this is all stuff they would talk about. If I went with “show, don’t tell” then we would just get some boring drawn out scenes of people learning about things they should have known about sooner. Things here need to be hit on again eventually though to punch the points in. I have to make sacrifices sometimes and wrapping up the history of a kid who has been trapped here for 2 years into one and a half comics was a lot better choice IMO than spending 6 comics on it. This also helps with showing Callum’s personality. He can easily get lost in thought and has a lot of experience living in this world. He’s really smart for his age, but still a kid with some mental trauma.
