One thing I've discovered about myself since graduating college is I can't stand being patronized. It was a big of an uncomfortable thing to figure out since I try not to keep an ego but drives me nuts. I can shrug off people screaming in my face and being irrational, but talking to me like an idiot means I'll want you dead. Hence why the kids probably react to bad to it.

Not much else to say about this one; it's a reaction I've wanted people to have to the kids for a long time. Just confusion followed by "Awww, how cute." Something that would drive you nuts. It would make a lot of sense that the kids would need to really struggle to be taken seriously.

I do like bringing up the Salix fight like this; think he was one of the comic's coolest, but weirdest villains and love how there's no way to make it sound not-absurd out of context.

It's probably pretty clear by now what we're lampooning with Quartz. And if it isn't... Come back Wednesday.

Man, I can't wait until we get to the pages with the line fix. This one just looks off, especially how Quartz's arm seems to be merging with his leg in that one panel because of how thin the lines came out. Kind of want to go back and do it retroactively on this page or something because of that.

Outside of that though, pretty happy with this page. Not sure how much I've really got to say on it, but does do a nice job I think of showing the whiplash with his personality a bit, and giving everyone a chance to stretch their legs and get a moment to show some personality, which is always good.
