Lot going on in this page I think is worth talking about... Guess the immediate one is Marvelous Man's speech, had to think a lot before writing it. I was really trying to go for something that sounded inspirational and heroic but slightly "off" and filled with platitudes and faults in logic. It's a really hard tightrope to walk.

Dunno if I've said this or not yet but Captain Kirk was a big inspiration on Marvelous Man in terms of personality, and that's where the whole "No-win scenario" thing comes from. I think his three biggest inspirations were probably Kirk, Hal Jordan, and Kingdom-Come Superman.

Nnng, God, those clouds! Those clouds look so good! When we saw how good the clouds were coming out in the last panel I asked Martin if it would work for the sun because... Yeah, I always hated how I draw the sun. It looks like all it needs is an angry face to fall down and attack Mario. Now the sun looks great. ^^

I really liked the balloons here; they give the impression Decay Conductor's voice is booming in the background but we're just hearing Marvelous Man and Private Gardner speak. Also it's a quick way to censor her dialog again.

Pity about going back to the Marvelous Man plot is I gotta drop the Blues advertising on Project Wonderful. Really hope it's not too weird for new readers for us to cut back to this. Not exactly what you're being promised with the tagline "Saving the world has no age limit."

Honestly I think I kind of overdid it on some of the detail lines on the clouds in this one personally. It's tricky to balance that right and I'm still figuring it out, but think some later pages look much better.

But yeah, I'm not too terribly sure what I have to say on this one. Next one I think'll give more to talk about.
