Yeah, it's a parody of the Venom suit. Not the actual thing. Sonic attacks don't One-Hit-KO it. Felt it was kinda good to establish that the second the fighting started or else everyone's would be "Why doesn't Grant just use his sonic-scream?"

At this point the chapter had been going on for waaaaay longer than I expected it to, to the point that I was seriously considering not having a fight sequence at all and the kids cutting their encounter with Quartz short. But between how awkward and wonky the Blue vs. Green action scenes were and knowledge of what the next chapter'll be like, I kinda felt like we needed to seize the chance and just have a fight scene. Then when I actually got around to writing it I got really happy; this fight turned out to be a ton of fun to do.

I do like the way Quartz's suit kinda ripples when the soundwave hits it, and the look of these weapons he's making. Each kinda looks neat with the color scheme and has a kinda-sorta design to it beyond just taking on the general shape. Led to some really good visuals and counter-attacks throughout this fight as he adapts his suit to fight each kid.

At one point in drawing this I had that wrecking-ball thing get embedded in the roof to show the impact. I regret changing it a bit since that made it look waaaay more forceful and dangerous, but... After drawing it like that I just thought "Wait, wouldn't someone in the building notice that?"

Not sure what I have to say on this one offhand really, think Adam pretty well covered most anything coming to mind. Guess could note that since I last mentioned it I've pulled ahead a lot on coloring and gotten caught up on the sitting pages. Something.

Think I kind of overdid it on Valerie's energy effect there, didn't look quite as good as it typically does. Might've also made Jenny's speed blur a little too obvious, possibly should've gone with a slightly more transparent approach. Eh, no huge deal really.

Oh, random thing Adam forgot to mention, Corrin cameos as a cloud there in the first panel. Think this was drawn right around the time the Smash Bros. DLC came out a few weeks ago and yeah, Corrin is just crazy fun to use.

What energy type is that?

Valerie collects energy throughout the day through heat and kinetic force, just bits at a time, and stores it in her body. Generally she can fire it out as blue beams that either deliver heat or kinetic force depending on which she wants to shoot.
