And the snowball fight's underway! Turns out on actually looking at the pages this segment really doesn't run that long, but hopefully everyone enjoys what's coming all the same. Some very busy pages if nothing else.

Anyway, not sure what all I have to say on this page myself. Nothing really stands out that I need to weigh in on, though I will say this chapter is by and large a very busy one with a lot of colors around. Something we've started doing recently, though it'll be a bit before you actually see it in Blues (WaR and BP will get to it in a couple of weeks), kind of isn't helping with that. All the same, been enjoying working on it.

Taktaq seems to be confused on which character she's supposed to be a reference to.

Okay, who's figured out what I'm doing with this? No point in keeping quiet until the reveal; there's not gonna be one, just a simple parody.

Jeez, judging by the site traffic and comments last time, guess the snowball fight's a winning idea. Maybe we went about this all wrong; maybe we should've had them fight Martina first and handle the snowball fight later.

Had a lot of trouble figuring out what Grant's winter outfit was gonna be. I wanted an excuse to do another comic sweater/jacket/thing, but couldn't think on anything. Then the X-Men jackets from Grant Morrison's run on the comic hit me and seemed perfect. In retrospect, could've put him in some smaller version of Alex's jacket, but not sure how much Merch he has in-universe.

A lot of the Daredevil effect in this one. In this fight in general really; Andy bounces around all over the place and it's really a lot of fun. ^^ Whole thing is, just hope nobody gets too bored. Tried not to make it that long.

If you're wondering; no, he's not naked; he can turn other objects/people invisible, including his clothes. He's as warmly dressed as everyone else. I was curious which team Guy would be on but when I realized Heather's role, figured she'd have to be there to oppose him.

Seriously, Heather's a dead give-away for it. Somebody's gotta see the joke.

So Sonic-kid has bouncing powers, but I guess Sonic's super speed ball thing would be pretty hard to draw, so did you decide to go with Ringo and Luc for Sonic-kid and devil-kid's names?

More I'm just not entirely sure how the speed-ball thing would work without looking really twisted trying it on a human.

.... Heh. Speed-ball. Bouncing. That's funny. ^^ Totally unintentional.

But yeah, they were actually referred to as Ringo and Luc in the script, though can't recall offhand if those names are used in this sequence.
