I realized I was still one band member short (the lack of two members, the other being Ella, was mentioned in the commentary here) when I sat down to make this comic and had to quickly come up with Mindy’s design (apparently she couldn’t make the photo shoot for the splash page). I was quite pleased with the result and the character personality I thought up for her (even though you don’t see it much here).
Obviously, Ella is just saying things to harass Percy. If you’ve ever been on stage before, you know that those lights are BRIGHT! Not to mention the audience is in the dark, so sunglasses wouldn’t help.
