Good job on the second part. I liked that it could stand alone but also be considered a part two. If I have any critique, it's that the blank space in the middle of the cap is a little weird and interrupts the story. You might try to put as much text beside the pic and then when you reach the level of the bottom of the pic, you should put the rest of the text under the pic. Anyways, good job.
I agree on your assessment on the shape of the text boxes but I was using paint to do it and whenever I would exit the text box, it would resize for some reason. It took about 10 tries to get it even that close.Thanks for your critique though and glad you like the story
