Hey, plot intersection! And this time it's not through the kids conveniently seeing what's going on and interrupting it!

Yeah, this next sequence gets kind of weird. Happy with it though and I assume Adam is too, though he did express a good bit of doubt about some parts of it as he wrote it.

For now though, we've got more of Darkskull being nuts, only now someone else gets to see it for themselves. How will he and McCay get along? Stick around!

Incidentally, I colored this page before Adam colored the previous one, so if the colors in the first panel on the merry-go-round don't match the previous page, just blame it on Darkskull being nutty. It's a convenient excuse.

Yeaaah, I was really iffy on these next few pages, but think they do a really good job but wrapping up one character while setting up another. Really hope you folks enjoy. ^^

Eheh... Yeah, figured Darkskull's way of looking at the carousel was gonna be messed up compared to real life anyway so just made my own way. Honestly would've been way easier on myself if I used Martin's colors as a guide (which is what I do every time I ever color something myself anyway) so kicking myself now.

Anyone who reads enough comics gets the third panel all too well. Massive, absurd amounts of dialog really drive me nuts, and as long as I was tackling bits of comic trends that annoy me, figured I could get a shot of that too. Just so much dialog it can barely fit into the panel.

Though even feel uncomfortable about that, since it's not like me and Martin don't use that a lot ourselves. I dunno, is it too much "Pot calling the kettle black?" In all fairness, I'm sorta embarrassed when I do it too.

Yeah, where's this going then? We'll have to sit and find out, I guess. ^^

So McCay has similar Darkskull-vision proof-ness as Lenore?

Maybe. ^^ We'll have to see.

Isn't that the female cop from before in the second panel there? why is he only wearing boxer shorts and shoes? and I'm betting McCay really wishes his powers had an off switch but now I'm wondering if the reason he was so surprised before had anything to do with the particular kinds of thoughts he was hearing.

Heheh... I think for McCay it's not that his powers can't be turned off just yet... You'll see what the problem is soon enough. Still, imagine the narration is pretty infuriating.

But as for that other cop, that's just because she's in Darkskull-Vision. Every woman who's showed up in that so far has dressed like that. Women in comic books do this all the time.
