That costume he's wearing. Look familiar?

Yeah, It was the proposed outfit for the Insomniac. The name Michael Marshalls was also seen on the list of possible names General Zodiac was looking over at the end of Chapter 19. So yeah, he's been set up for a bit.

I've been going back and forth on how to reveal him before settling on this mode of having him interrupt a fight and save the day himself. The original plan was to intersperse bits of his recruitment, getting his powers, ect. into the chapters, slowly revealing more and more of him. We have had hints to his appearance but it's been in the background until now. ^^ The company in crossover chapter delivering DNA-Sequencing chemicals to a government storage facility and the like.

Kinda glad we took it this way since the whole "show bits and pieces of it now and then until we see the payoff" thing is already being done with the Fontainebleu pages. Plus I think premiering him this way makes my plans for him a bit more mysterious. Hopefully. ^^

The next chapter is mostly going to be dealing with Marvelous Man's "official" premiere to the world. Again, this was a last-minute thing, but the original idea would be that the press conference and the like would be folded into the next planned chapter, Blue vs. Green. But... Yeah, that one is gonna be a busy one, so couldn't get it too crammed. Making a sorta mini-chapter just dealing with Marvelous Man lets things breathe a little bit better and gives us the chance to meet the guy and know more about him.

Hope you folks'll enjoy it anyway. ^^ Before then we've got three pieces of filler coming up; another Fontainebleu page, a little something dealing with the fallout of Meyers' arrest, and a little something from our dear friend Abe. Maybe not in that order, we'll have to see.

Yeah, if I'm being honest, I actually don't think this chapter and the one after it are structured all that well. I certainly can't judge though, had issues with that myself and Adam and I have talked over the problem a good bit. If nothing else if it bothers anybody too much, just look at it as a necessary evil for the chapter that's coming after.

Yeah, I dunno. In general I tend to find Blues hard to talk about lately and this page isn't really much of an exception. Did this page and a couple of others in one night which isn't helping me with trying to think of stuff about it. Hope everyone enjoys though.

Marvelous Man was on the year 4 preview and it looks like he didn't realize the kids were bluebloods, Blue vs. Green sounds like the kids are going to be facing off against Antlers by themselves.

Possibly. ^^ Hope you'll enjoy when it comes up. In between we got this shorter chapter titled Blue Debut.

That last panel makes me want to punch him in the face. Don't know why, but it does.
