What happens on this page and the next one was originally supposed to be in just one page. But that was just too much text, so now we have one page only showing Madeleine Waite rambling on monologuing instead. Well, at least that gave me the opportunity to let her gesture a bit.

I wonder though if Madeleine would discuss this issue so openly with Bettina if the former knew that the latter is in fact no stranger to leaking company secrets to the press...

Madeleine mentions "Mad Science, Inc", which is the derogatory nickname for Horizon Dynamic Systems, as established back in Madeleine's "30 Days" debut.

And the Shroud is the Autumn Bay lore version of the MIB. ProfEtheric told me that Madeleine is very much aware of them, so this gets acknowledged in her thought bubble.

Furthermore, wasn't Madeleine in some way also involved in Augustus Alexander's move against ToyCo? How can she be so sure that Bettina doesn't have a grudge against her?
So yeah, all things considered, disclosing confidential company internals to Bettina of all people may not be the smartest idea she ever had...
Luckily for her though, this chapter won't be "Childhood's End 2: The Toy Empire Strikes Back". We'll see what Bettina's next move is in the coming page...

Counterpoint: anybody can see that Madeleine wears her heart on her sleeve. Agree or disagree, it's real hard to have contempt for such conviction. I can see how she might be able to reach out to Bettina without... repercussions.

When the next page comes up, pay attention to Madeleine's plate. You'll see that the continuity supervision did their homework... ;-)

(Also, good to know that the beans I drew are actually recognizable as such!)
