I've been following this comic for a long time and I'm still always delighted by every new page!! I may be a little bias too because this is one of my favourite online comics at the moment, but here we go...

Another great page that really stands out to me because I LOVE the foreshortening here, we're getting really good motion on Africa and I love it. I also really appreciate the focus being placed on everyone's expressions by blurring the background -- but this also creates a bit of an issue for me. I like the idea, I just feel like whatever filter was used to create this effect is a little too strong here, because the texture is smudgy and very digitized and I feel like that distracts and therefor detracts from the gorgeous texture you get from your coloured pencils.

Overall, I think the page is great, I think the composition is awesome, the clarity is great, the little cliffhanger - I don't want to admit is great because it's driving me nuts waiting for the reveal but - works wonderfully, I think my only complaint is how that filter works. And I don't think it's even an issue of the filter, I think just a more transparent version of that filter or maybe a less textured filter would work really perfectly for what you're doing here.
What do you think?

IT'S FLAMINGOES. I KNOW IT IS XD The blur is a little disorienting... not sure if I like it as much as no blur... but oh well.

Another thing: I think the blur effect looks really cool and I wonder how the artist put it there. Was it done by hand or was it added later digitally?

Just a friendly suggestion for this page, in panel 1, The giant Africa can be a normal sized Africa by placing her on some sort of outcrop/mid ground hill/hill crest, to pull her out of the back ground a little?  She looks like she is Monster sized :)  But i love your artwork as normal and can't wait to see more pages!

I have a very disturbing feeling that what they're seeing is a blood soaked lake.
Can't wait to be proven wrong, please...?
