Yeah, this was a page I had wanted to do for a while. It's kinda hard to do a shared universe at times; you need things to be compatible, obviously, but you also need to try and make things feel like a cohesive whole while at the same time making sure everything is self-contained on its own story-wise. Having a moment just be acknowledged like this does sort of give it a monumental feeling.

I don't know if Marvelous Man will actually show up in BP or WaR, though it might be possible. That one's kinda Martin's call. ^^ Do enjoy doing the cameos.

If you don't read the other comics, the woman in the second panel is Ivy League from Wright As Rayne; I don't think it's come up in-story yet but she's likely one of the longest-active super-heroes in this 'verse, if not the longest-active period. The one in the fourth panel is Cynthia Hearst, the boss of Sareena Black from Black Princess. What's more, Miss Mania, the very first super-hero in our universe, has only been mentioned in Wright As Rayne up until now. She's not active anymore so she's not terribly important at the moment, but it's just an interesting bit of the mythos to look at.

To show the wait time between when Blues goes up and when WaR goes up, immediately after drawing his page I had to draw THIS one for WaR-

I was incredibly disappointed with how the shot of Marvelous Man came out in the last panel so took the time to make sure that one shot in that other panel was better handled. Honestly, Marvelous Man deciding to premiere by floating over the reporters probably was to his detriment given how goofy it came out.

Ugh, somebody installed something they shouldn't have on the computer I use for coloring, now thing's a nonstop frenzy of pop-ups while I'm just trying to comment on the page.

But yeah, do like the whole, "This is one big world," thing going on with all of this. This will actually make some dialogue in a few pages from BP a little screwy since WaR and BP's current chapters are set just before this, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

We do have plans to do some further cross-comic references like this, but not right away or anything. As for if Marvelous Man will pop up in WaR or BP... Not sure, but I will say he'll definitely at least be mentioned.

I don't even want to know what the psychotic evil couple is up to, I see Ivy still has that punching bag, wonder what Sarabeth's interest in all this is.

Well, she DOES run a crime syndicate. ^^
