As I mentioned in Friday's post, I'm currently gearing up for a short Teenager Jade adventure I'm tentatively calling "The Trials of Paradox". I feel like this glimpse into her past we're seeing here is a good way to set expectations for the way she was back then.
For reference, this is taking place when Jade is around 16-17, and preparing for the trials that begin on her 18th birthday*. Knowledge is power, and all that. Also gotta love the general disdain for parental figures as a teenager, combined with that outfit...was Jade a goth? Probably. Was I a goth at 17? We're not answering that.
*counting from when she was discovered as a baby; she is approximately 6-9 months older than that, but she and her moms have always counted her birthdays from then.
Remember that after this Friday, we're going down to 1x/week until after Christmas! If you'd like next year's comics to be more frequent, please consider donating! Merch will also be available next year, if you're interested in some prints, or stickers, or other goodies!
