Oh, yeah, that guy.

Anyway, not sure how much I have to say on this page, though I am pretty happy with it. It does, if only for the Darkskull panel, kind of stand out as one of the more memorable pages in this sequence, but there isn't much that can be said here that doesn't apply to the rest of it.

Let's see... Anyone else kind of feel like Andy borders on breaking the fourth wall sometimes when he leans forward like that? Not so much here, but usually when he does that he seems to be looking at the camera.

Anyway, that's about all I've got, so be sure to swing by again at the start of the year for Lore's turn to have a speech!

Heh. I hadn't noticed. Mostly I just figure he can do that cool lean move like in Smooth Criminal.

But yeah, I do try and pay close attention to details like this in the comic; the question of who knows about the kids and who doesn't. Since it's really vital to their operation that they stay unknown, I kinda need to make sure that's carefully watched.

So yeah, Fortress is the only one so far to talk about it to the authorities, and it's easily confirmable that the kids were at the fair with him, but he's far from reliable in terms of being a witness. What's TV Tropes call that? Cassandra Truth?

I guess Alex Rayne kinda-sorta knows, though there's no way of confirming if it's true from his position, plus doubt he'd blow the whistle.

Weird to think how much attention I pay to that given most major comics don't care. Like.... at all. Most major comics I read will have them reveal their identities or be discovered or have it turn out someone knew all along pretty much constantly. Think Batman writers tend to be the worst since a lot of folks seem to think they're the first ones doing it, but Ultimate Spider-Man was really bad about it too. By the time he died, basically everyone knew it.

Eheh... Sorry 'bout that tangent, moving on.... Yeah, Jake's here. Toldja he'd get more screen-time in this one.

Luckily for the kid's Fortress is so far off the deep end it's doubtful anyone will believe a word he says(he's in a straight jacket for crying out loud) and that is an interesting pose Grant is in in the last panel.

Yeah, I get the feeling Fortress probably beats up his doctors quite a bit, hence the jacket. But as for Grant, I do enjoy having him float around and sit a lot, know I've done it before in the comic....

Did you mean to have Andy disclude Darkskull from the villains list?

Thank you for making a fun non swearing comic like this. It's got some great depth and i've grown to like the art a lot. The idea of mature children brings some interesting things up. I love having James read to them, because it begs the question of what activities are childish and what activities we just associate with children and so try to avoid as an adult. Personally, I think reading a book out loud with someone would be a great activity, and not one we can't do as adults.

Oooo, new commenter. ^^ Really appreciate it; we're always happy for more support. I'm happy you like the comic so much, I'm often afraid the concept of kid super-heroes might alienate a lot of potential readers, so it's good to find someone really behind the concept.

But yeah, that's a good point. Reading aloud is something you can only do as kids. Same thing with the bunk-beds, or someone sleeping in the same bed as a friend like Andy does with Nicky. They're all things that are really different to kids than adults, but not exactly "Immature."

As for the swearing.. Yeah, we try got a PG, Saturday-morning style feel. Glad we hit it. ^^
