There. That was a lot of comic. ^^ Second-longest chapter we've ever done and hoping not to match that record for a long, looong time. Eheheh... Still, didn't feel as boasted as Best Served Blue did, just a lot of specific moments that I think served the story nicely. All the same, glad it's over.

There's a few different thoughts going into this I'm rather fond of... Someone noted to me that it seems petty for the kids to be competing with Marvelous Man, but I don't think that's what they're doing; he's more of a measuring stick for their own success/failure. Like a sort of professional rival. Aaaand when you've had a really, really bad night, it can really sting seeing someone else is doing awesome at the exact thing you're failing at.

Plus... God, just lookit how huggable Lore looks in that one panel. ^^

I like a lot of other bits in this page... Andy of course has gone back to his unofficial job of keeping morale up, Xandy's new dress was presumably mailed to her by her dad.... I like Grant's perspective on "the day after." He doesn't exactly have an easy time going back to his offscreen-classes after kicking butt as Songbird. Also, that adventure Marvelous Man went on is a reference to the failed Wonder Woman pilot produced by WB and never "officially" released. If you've seen anything about that partciular portrayal of Wonder Woman... Erm... Yeah, that actually speaks a lot to Marvelous Man's character. Speaking of which, Martin edited in that News Ticker on the TV. ^^ Was a great touch.

I really, really hate to say this, folks, but the comic'll be taking a month-long break for a bit. Come back every update day, we'll have filler every Wednesday/Saturday, just... Yeah, need a break, that's all. ^^ I'll probably put up a more direct filler on Wednesday to address all those folk who don't read comments and give an exact date for coming back.

Hope everyone enjoyed this latest chapter.

Yeah, just taking a break for awhile, nothing too huge - wanting to bolster the backlog a bit, recharge a bit after the good six month run we've just been through, that kind of thing. Think this is the first time Blues has done this but if you read WaR and BP, nothing new there since done it with those a couple of times. Won't be doing that after the current chapter speaking of, or at least not in this form.

This one was kind of a weird page to do just on how I needed to come up with all kinds of new colors for a bunch of outfits we'd only be seeing in this one panel. Especially odd with Jenny's shoes given the idea is she's in a different pair every time we see her. Of course, most of these outfits are already established anyway, but still had to redo the colors for them a bit and stuff given how I pretty much adjust the palette a bit every chapter just to keep things at a level I approve of.

And hey, we get an acknowledgement of them actually having classes! Not actually in one, but they're on the way! Clearly the truth of the month break is to avoid having to actually show it.

Not sure what all filler exactly you can expect honestly, though probably nothing too intensive, but we'll keep it worth your while to keep checking the comic, don't worry.

Xandy's dress is funny, as for Marvelous Man I am not impressed, great page guys.
