Got my sisters visiting and sorta distracted, but don't wanna skip on my comments to this one, so lemme try and muscle through. ^^

Yeah, like you guys saw coming, the broken arm was enough to crack the curse. The kids were pretty visibly losing but that was all they needed in order to win.

Can talk about the loss part of this next week but, the victory.... Like I said in my soapbox spiel at the start of this chapter, Martina as a character isn't a strawman-statement against religion or faith, and if anything tried to turn the real quasi, not-really moral of the chapter about religious tolerance. Even though I'm a Christian and the topic of religion came up a lot in the story I try to keep my own personal beliefs out of the comic since me and Martin have read a few comics that are really, really bad about shoving their opinions down your throat.

But I did try to subtly show my approval for religious faith in this final page and through the chapter. When I picked that Quran verse that Imam Sahir quoted, it was partly because of the line, "He will make for him a way out, and provide for him where he does not expect." When he says that last part, we see the shot of Valerie walking up the aisle preparing to get rid of Martina. And now, when Martina's beaten we see the very spiritual image of the sunlight breaking through the clouds. Sahir and all those that Martina threatened are, in the end, rewarded for their faith from a quite-unexpected source.

I dunno, didn't wanna be too preachy about it, but did wanna convey some kind of spiritual meaning to the whole thing, in the end.

Only three pages left in the chapter, two of which we're especially eager to show off. ^^ Do hope you guys enjoy.

And here are the comments from our dearest friend Martin. ^^
What do I have to say on this one... Everything. I have everything to say on this.

Or not. Yeah, think Adam covered it. There is one thing I could get into but it's more suited to the next page. So... Yeah, don't know what to say admittedly.

If nothing else, I'm pumped as hell for the crossover. Though we really need to do the between-chapters filler, not done it yet. Should be weird.
