Think this page took me awhile to color, but I'm definitely happy with the end result. Again, pretty frenzied page with a lot going on in it, and we have a nice little hook for the end here.

One thing I rather like about Jake, between this and the thing with Martina back in chapter three, is that he doesn't fool around when it comes to stopping someone. Does that mean though that he's willing to pull the trigger if he has to? Stay tuned to see.

Yeah, I kinda like protagonists like that. There's no love of the hunt or adventure or attempt to battle; just knows the situation is dangerous so he tries to end it as quickly and efficiently as possible, almost to the point where he wants to end it faster than the story if comfortable with. The only example I can think of is Soichiro Yagami but still...

Which is useful here because, like I said, the chapter turned out waaaay too long and at this point I just wanted it to end. So I had Jake step in and cut right to the chase instead of doing another kids vs. cyborgs fight.

Almost a pity really, since the fight was apparently going to be pretty fun judging by the franticness of the third panel. I wonder what Grant was gonna do with Felicia. Was he just gonna slam her on the ground, or was he gonna fly her to a prison and dump her in the yard like at the end of the Christopher Reeve Superman movie? I could see either choice.

Even if it's only a stun laser getting hit in the face with it from point blank range would not be a good thing, and after this Grant is going to understand exactly what Alex was talking about in his email.

Yeah, Grant'll be reflecting on that before the chapter's is over. ^^
