Heheh... Yeah, it's weird to think this is the first Blues page to be written by Martin, given he's written plenty of little diddies with the cast before just between us, and he's also been helping out with the process of writing since day one (bouncing ideas and such). Still, this is the very first one one by him. ^^ Enjoy!

This is also the page with the highest head count in the entire comic, so it was also a huge pain for each of us to get finished visually. Yeah, don't imagine he realized that when he worked on it... Still, with a page focusing on the team, the head count can really get away from ya. ^^

All the same, happy with how it came out.... Do really love doing stories that happen at night, particular because I like how the darker colors look and partly because I'm a night person. It's a pity that unlike Wright As Rayne, the protagonists at Blues have a bedtime, so it's harder to get night-based chapters....

Kind of funny circumstances that led to this being written; essentially, the power was out for a solid week due to the weather around the end of October, and I wrote this on a laptop basically just to have something to do and not completely waste the week. I did after a few days make it over to my mom's and I stayed there until the power came back on and did some stuff while there so it wasn't as much of a waste as it could have been, but still, no way of knowing that at the time.

This mostly just came about from occasional thoughts I've had on some more creative uses for powers; Nicky and Andy's powers lend themselves quite well to being thrown, with Nicky's also potentially being able to be used for recovery purposes, and speedsters being able to kick up gusts of wind is a pretty frequent feature of them. Throw in Grant running support and there are a lot of ways the group can really combine their powers and do some more complex things on the battlefield.

Funny thing, the next chapter will also be pretty night-heavy. When you combine it with the Aurora fight, Blues has probably done more at night than WaR or BP has so far. Both certainly have more night chapters to come, though.

Not a whole lot to say outside of that, it's not really terribly complex in terms of what's going on, but I hope everyone enjoys!

Actually, no, come to think of it Black Princess probably wins the night race for right now. The second chapter started in the early morning, a significant chunk of the fourth, fifth, and eighth chapters took place at night... Yeah, BP's definitely had the most night scenes so far.
