This next bit is important: most of the original 64 entered Round one blind; aside from submission comics (and those were optional so some contestants did not have anything more than a character sheet and a quick blurb), most of us didn’t really have an inkling of what we were capable of. This illusion was immediately shattered when two days before the deadline, one of the contestants, Sleepy, dropped an absolutely stunning slobberknocker of a comic topping out at 17 pages.

And they had done this in 12 days, 2 days before the deadline of the round.

(Also this is the last moment in the comic until round six where I use Chinese to denote Fei/Rabbit casting a spell)
