Yeah, this is one of the best pages in the chapter thus far, I think. Visually it just looks great; really love the middle and final panels. ^^

Was a little unsure of how to handle it at first... I really wanted to do that visual of someone breaking through the canopy and into the open air over the forest, but... Really, I sorta felt like it was too good an image to waste on just Autumns. Wanted one of the kids to do it. With Grant MIA, Martin suggested I have Nicky stretch up and that idea was just great. ^^ I especially love how he "rubber-bands" his legs back up to meet the rest of him in the fourth panel.

Also really liked getting to draw the bats. Both look very different but are visibly still bats. In particular like the blinded one.

I dunno if what they're doing here will be explained later or not so will say here; the bat is using sonar to produce extreme disorientation and loss of equilibrium. I think it's funny that my main influence on that last panel was Touch Fuzzy, Get Dizzy.

Man, done like nothing on Blues coloring for a few days now. Still a bit ahead, no danger of next week's going up uncolored or anything, but still. Actually have a lot of stuff sitting uncolored right now I should really get to later. Hm.

In either case, yeah, this one I'm pretty happy with too. Adam wound up doing a bit of this, but really just plugging in some old colors since my computer was lagging up badly trying to work on it; all the new stuff's from me as is most of the old.

Do really like how it came out, especially the shots about the trees. Really like how the tint clashes with the more reddish / brownish one of the others in this sequence as it's bursting from being surrounded by trees and up into the sky with the moon up above. Really like how that effect came out. Really need to have a similar sort of visual in a more peaceful situation with the whole team at some point.

The moon looks like a word balloon in the last panel, chaos reigns supreme, wonder what happened to Jenny.
