How brave of Nicky, using his sister as a human shield to keep from being shot! Under the circumstances that's a perfectly smart and reasonable thing to do, but still kind of funny.

Whole lot going on in this one. Chiko-tan's not suddenly gotten up for the fight or something, Jake's getting Jenny down, Andy's flipping by... Yeah, lot to pick from to put your focus on. Always fun to do with comics, so long as you don't overdo it.

"Commence Operation: Human Shield!" Yeah, like Martin said, it's pretty terrible unless you factor in that Nicky knew she could absorb lasers. ^^

And yeah, the busy-ness was something I was going for here. I really wanted to have a lot of motion and craziness going on once everybody was free. Honestly don't think I did well enough- there's a lot of empty space in the first two panels- I could've filled it with Spencer ducking out from Grant dive-bombing him or Lore crushing Kensuke's bat in her hands or something.

I think by this point I was running out of steam for the chapter. It had gone on for way, WAY longer than I expected and I was making an effort to wrap it up about now. Still, didn't try to rush the ending too much and think it came out alright. ^^ Hope you'll enjoy what's coming.

This page is super cool and I love Val's line in the last panel, and the countdown to the 200th page is underway.

Heheh... I kinda prefer Nicky's line myself. ^^ Just imagine it coming out super-fast, like a blur.

But the way we count pages, this one is 190. The 200th page is already drawn though- it's the second page of the next chapter (not counting the cover). Kept it in mind and tried to do something sorta appropriate for it.

Since Shinobu said they weren't going to kill them (or was she just lying?), now I'm wondering what the laser gun would do if it hit Nicky (heaven forbid).

Heheh... I think that's why they're using lasers. It could just burn or shock Nicky into unconsciousness, as opposed to killing him.

Although given Nicky's elasticity, it's possible he's bullet-proof. Maybe. I doubt he's in much of a hurry to stand in front of a gun and find out.
