Yeah, this goes in a weird direction right off the bat. I did really, really love to get to re-visit Spencer and his crew over the course of this chapter. Hell, one reason the chapter's coming out so long is I just enjoy writing this group too much. I especially liked Spencer's reaction to Antlers showing up to murder him.

But yeah, this has kinda been the idea on Antlers for a long time; having him target Spencer for assassination. It just kinda made perfect sense. If anything using him in the crossover chapter was because we needed a villain for it and he could've benefited from some prior set-up.

Also it's sorta hard coming up with nature-based spells for Antlers. The idea here is it's a sort of whip/flail made from a scorpion's tail. No, at no point using it does he scream "GET OVER HERE!"

Some of the eagle-eyed viewers might recognize the reporters here from the ones interviewing Marvelous Man in the last chapter. What is with all the press conferences in the comics lately?

So yeah, right off the bat we get into some action. ^^ Hope you guys really enjoy.

Actually, find it funny you didn't mention the Antlers thing was my idea in its own right; originally Adam had this planned as just some representative of the group trying to shoot Spencer on Antlers's behalf but I threw out the idea of him attempting the assassination himself.

Actually, probably a decent bit to say on this one just on the basis that it does have a lot of stuff I just kind of adlibbed or came up with. Each panel growing darker is one of those, just to really make things look gradually ominous and like the situation's quickly worsening. It'll get a lot darker before the scene is over.

Another thing was Kensuke's hair having red and blue in it. Total improvising on my part, basically I liked the idea of having him changed the blond to something more tool-ish and silly and at first thought blue. Then I wondered about red, and that turned to, "Why not both?" Which was an especially good way to live up to the original intent of the chance.

Who keeps spraypainting random ads for Alex and occasionally Sareena in Blues and the Blues group in WaR, anyway?

Also, tell Adam happy birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADAM! This interaction is freaking hilarious and if those reporters weren't there I could easily picture the kids being brought up during all this.
