Heh... Okay, JEEZ, was I in a cuteness mode drawing up this one. I mean, look at how adorable everybody came up. Lots of blushing, lots of pouting... Just turned out really cute.

And a big part of that is I think the kids feel pretty immature in their reactions to this news.... I dunno, it's been mentioned in both comics that when the super-hero business started out there were a lot of untrained heroes running around that were slowly weeded out. The Blues kids' triumph is just causing that to start up again, with unlicensed nutjobs running around thinking they can do it just as well as the main heroes.

I wanna discuss more in future stories that to a general guy in the public seeing this for the first time, assuming Marvelous Man was all talk is just a more logical assumption than "These kids are super-tough." Thinking that a bunch of grade schoolers are competent and talented enough to beat such a powerful foe is bizarre and insane enough that it's hard to swallow if you don't know these kids.

All the same, the kids probably have every reason to feel angry about being written off like that, since beating Marvelous Man was a big win for them. Again, the main crux of the next story arc is proving to everyone that they can do it.

For the record, I like how this page shows the height disparity in the group. Since the time skip Val's supposed to be the tallest member of the team now and it's taken some work to get into the habit of drawing her as such. Now it's obvious. ^^

Hey, Grant got a new phone!

Admittedly not the easiest page to comment on for me, kind of just continuing the scene of everyone talking. Do rather like how it came out though.

Think my favorite part of this is Valerie calling Nicky out on constantly bringing up beating Marvelous Man. Kind of a gag we had in mind for awhile, which is part of why Nicky's kept mentioning it (and also just seems like an appropriately little kid thing to do), although after this chapter we'll probably ease off on it a good bit.

Speaking of, next page is the last one of the chapter. Yeah, shortest one to date (in Blues anyway, WaR and BP've done shorter) since this was basically just setup for the next one. We'll be having a break afterward, more details to come, but in that time if nothing else in that time there will be the year 9 preview and more of the Rick storyline. Next chapter's What Can I Do For Blue; got some funny things to say about that title but we'll get to that probably when the cover goes up.

Kids are kids no matter how smart and mature they are, very interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.

You guys are getting really good with expressions. Lore looked pretty cute in the fourth panel.
