This is one of those pages where I'm just really eager to see it colored. Happens a lot when I've got something very visual. When I wrote the script on this, I wasn't sure it would come out okay, when I drew the lineart, I wasn't sure it would come out okay, but Martin made it work, as he always does. ^^ The shattering eyes and sprays of oil on the face really worked nicely thanks to him.

I did picture the last panel of him looking over his shoulder with that massive chainsaw to look more ominous, though. But it's kinda hard to pull it off when Chiko-tan's expression is always that stoic and bored. Maybe if his entire face exploded and you could see exposed wiring and stuff, that'd have been creepier. Eh, hindsight.

Wait, that buster weapon blew a giant hole in the wall.... Shouldn'tit have had some effect on the floor too? I only just realized that. Again- hindsight.

And now we know Grant's Fatality.

Yeah, pretty happy with this page, though not a whole lot to say on it. Really should've probably commented on the next page after this one, since otherwise it just feels like treading old ground, y'know?

Nice seeing that Grant's outline flight appears to be contagious.

This is a fine example of why sonic screams are among the most powerful and dangerous superpowers, if Chiko-tan was a human instead of a robot he'd be dead after that attack. This reminds me of that Justice League epsiode where Black Canary told Green Arrow she couldn't use her powers when her opponents were close-range because of the danger that her screams could kill them. You know, seeing how close these two are now, it's hard to believe that Nicky was actually afraid of Grant at the beginning of this comic.

Oh, yeah, was that the one where they went to the Meta-Brawls to help Wild Cat quit the underground fighting ring? That one was great. Ooo, and so was the other Black Canary heavy one where She, GA, Huntress and Question came to blows. That was one of my favorites of the series. ^^ God, JLU was such an awesome series...

Heh... Actually, I'm more surprised Nicky was scared of him since Grant is such a huge geek. But yeah, I did try to play up the closeness these two share. ^^

Yes, that is the epsiode I am refering to Adam and I left a comment for you on the last page.

Something tells me that Chiko-tan has used the melee weapon a few times before...

Heheh... Ominous thought. ^^ Any reasoning for it?

Oh, I don't know... maybe the coloring of the blade???
