Not a whole lot to say on this one, but seem to recall it being a pretty time-consuming one to color. Not too surprising, given just how busy it is.

Actually something about this page, or as it relates to a later one, I've been kind of meaning to look into since I'm unsure on the reality of it, but we'll get into that when the page rolls around. For now, anyone notice something besides just blood in the air in the third panel?

Think it's plausible. ^^ Dunno if I've pointed it out yet, but Kensuke's right hand isn't a glove like the kind Black Flame over in Wright As Rayne sports. It's an artificial hand.

Oddly enough, I did plan on having another character from this chapter sport a pair of super-gloves in the same fashion but dropped it fairly quickly. Partly because of the similarity to Black Flame (quite a few characters with super-gloves show up in this universe, actually... Her, Ruki, White Noise...) but also because the character went in a different direction.

Not much else to say here. Kensuke, Autumn, and Chiko-tan were all surprisingly last-minute additions to the cast, but I think they came out really nicely, especially Kensuke here.

Figure it bares mentioning that all Ruki's glove really is is that it's loaded with some substance or other - maybe lead or something - so that it just hurts a lot when you're hit with it. There isn't anything remarkable about it other than that. Still, yeah, the glove thing has been kind of overused in my stuff so far admittedly.

Heh... Wouldn't quite say overused, since I think I only noticed it since I'm the artist. Just worth noting, I think. ^^ Plus I'm pretty sure White Noise has a spoiler-iffic excuse.

Doesn't he use a sword? where did that bat come from? and yes I see something other then blood there, it looks like Kensuke knocked a tooth out of Nimbles mouth, but hey he's only 7 so with any luck it's just a baby tooth that got knocked out. Oh, and Adam since you've established that Grant is a huge Alex Rayne fan I find it odd that I've never seen him wearing a Storm over Atlanta t-shirt or a t-shirt with his profile or head on it cause I'm pretty sure Atlanta stores have websites that include services for mailorders to different states.

Bat's been seen throughout this chapter - back on page thirteen he was carrying it over his shoulders, then he swung it in fourteen. Dunno when Adam decided to make that change, so he'll probably chime in on that himself later, but he's been consistent in it through this fight at least.

As for the Alex thing, guess it just hasn't really come up. There have been pictures drawn with him wearing such things here and there actually, just not really come up in story yet. Will need to do that sometime soon.

I think Andy's gonna get a visit from the Tooth Fairy after this. It'd be funny if he had a gap in his teeth for a few chapters- until the new one comes in.
