Everyone in the comments on the last page seemed to agree that it'd be weird for Danny to be sleeping since he's a ghost, and honesty? That never even crossed my mind as weird, but yeah, I can see why you'd all assume he doesn't sleep! Do all Mobian ghosts sleep? I'm not sure! Danny's already a special case as he doesn't float or phase through things for reasons yet to be elaborated on in the comic. Maybe sleeping is just another aspect of THAT?

HEY! I announced this on the SDCP already but for all of you who are interested in the Seamer Dex Community Project, I'll be doing a SDCP-only stream on Sunday, May 28th at 3pm EST!

(I might do another Dot X stream before then, we'll see how my voice feels when I start work on the next page!)

Maybe Danny isn't even a ghost at all! Maybe he's a different type of spirit

Thank you! It's been fun drawing him again after so long!

Nailed it!

That clothes question is a fantastic question that doesn't come up nearly as much as it should! The answer, put simply, is that clothing is not a required part of Mobian society the way it is for humans- Clothes exist in modern day as a fashion thing for Mobians, but being a beast-like species it's acceptable for them not to wear anything. Dot X takes place at the heart of Mobian culture- Mobians in other more human-populated areas are much more likely to wear some form of clothing to fit in with their surroundings. However, some Mobians never wear any clothes as a sign of pride of their heritage.
Mobians first started wearing clothing of any kind back when Mobius himself was still alive. As they grew as a landlocked civilization, they began developing light armor to help them in combat. Mobians today have no need for armor (usually) and so wearing things has become what it is in the comic, again, fashion based. Exposure to human culture has helped this transition as well.

Audrey IS a girl- I know exactly which part of the intro you're talking about:

"Some are born with one layer only - like Fade - while others inherit the ability to grow a second layer, often of a slightly different colour (Pudding, Frisky, and Chia all have this ability). This mutation seems to be genetically linked to females, as it occurs most frequently in girls (though as we know, there are exceptions - such as Audrey)."

This was written before Audrey's redesign, and should probably be updated! If you look at Audrey before the 'Night Terrors' chapter you'll see that she only has one layer of hair- That's what this quote is referring to! ^_^
