Again, this was an early, early idea for the chapter, this flashback thing. Before actually doing the chapter I wrote an entire backstory for Qrime Qure detailing his life as a crime-fighter so I'd know what to include in the flashbacks. It helps that these flashbacks are really fast and easy to draw. Mostly because they're not required to be very good. I think they only work in the art department because Martin gets the colors so perfect to match the source material.

One problem with this flashback we'll get into is that once we introduced that idea that each is done in a different art-style we had to keep that up. I was clueless what to draw this one to look like... Wound up settling on that one really bad Spider-Man cartoon from the 90s where he wasn't allowed to punch anybody. Naturally the girlfriend here is a send-up to Gwen Stacy, Peter's dead girlfriend from the comic. We also get a cameo from a Jameson look-alike since the guy's probably my favorite character in Spidey's comics. ^^

Originally in the script the comic was gonna end with Ginny's death being witnessed by a crowd of people who just took pictures on their camera-phones instead of helping her (hence the last name Genovese). I forgot to draw that crowd in the last panel so just dropped it and re-wrote that mini-monologue in the final panel.

Bull-Elephant's weird thing was that rather being based on actual bull-elephants he just has the traits of both. He's got bull-like hooves coming out the back of his hands, bull-horns as well as tusks, and elephant-feet. Design was sorta intentionally lazy and nonsensical.

That's a fairly gory shot for Blues actually.

Yeah, the flashbacks could be a little odd. Coloring them could also be kind of a hassle since I had to continually change the palette to fit whatever art style we were going with. Though we just recently did the last one and we think it's probably the best of these, so no huge deal there.

Not sure how much I've really got to say here though, think Adam pretty well handled it. There's a good bit of backstory we'll need to blow through here, so be prepared I guess.

Okay, wonder what's going to happen next.
