This and the page after wound up being way more complex and demanding than I realized they'd be. Stuff like the fountain and the water were surpririsngly time-consuming, but think they came out very nice. Andy bouncing around naturally came out really nice as well. ^^

Do hope it's all conveyed nicely enough, like Meyers flash-freezing Nicky's arms and Andy scaring Meyers into tripping back into the fountain... The third panel's likely my favorite. ^^ Martin's coloring of the water is always great.

One regret I have with this chapter is how we spend almost the entire thing wondering where the hell Meyers came from, where her powers came from, ect. At least I was able to make the powers themselves really directly obvious to everyone. Will have to wait for a bit for an answer on the rest, but it's coming, don't worry.

Not sure how much I have to say on this one offhand. Honestly I tend to feel really mixed on water - do think it looks okay here but there's always this tricky balance of making it too blue vs. not blue enough. Think I sort of overdid it here the more I look at it but doesn't look terrible I don't think.

One thing I do like is how as the chapter's gone along the redesigns have been becoming a little more clear, like that shot of Andy. Don't think we're entirely into the habit of keeping those consistent yet but still, does feel like it's moving along.

Related on the powers thing, I can't remember if the group ever actually learns Meyers' name during this whole sequence.

Looks like Meyers can't handle the reality check, looking forward to the next page.
