Again, really love the coloring on this guy. Dunno if we'll ever see him short of another group-shot in the newspaper office, was kinda created for this exchange.

Hm. Bit disappointed on this one looking back. Was trying to give this a kind of bullying vibe, but wanted it to be more subtle. Here it's much too obvious, like something you'd see in a high school. And that is admittedly what I was going for, because that kind of bullying mentality does go beyond high school, but didn't want it to come out so on-the-nose. If I'd made the bit where he holds the tablet out of arms reach less extreme, like it's just a bit beyond where it can be taken back, it would've worked a lot better. Devil's in the details. Maybe have Marvelous Man just touching Graine's chest with his hand, minor things that work to display dominance much more subtly than what was done.

Admittedly I HAVE had the "hold item just out of reach" thing happen to me before so maybe it's more true to life than I'm thinking. What's kind of infuriating about this sort of bullying is it's often instigated by a belief that the other person deserves it (or worse, needs it), so it's okay to push it as far as you want to go without any sort of guilt. You're not a bully, you're a hero. It's why you can see this behavior sometimes from people with otherwise upstanding jobs or with the heart in the right place, like cops. It can be a weird blur between saying what needs to be said and getting a power-trip. Or how much advise people actually need (or want) and how much is just you being a pain.

Gah. Whatever, hope you folks enjoy.

No idea what to say on this one really. Fairly busy one, just nothing much jumps out at me over it.

Do get a bit more fleshing out of some of Colt's perspective on things, is that. Otherwise... Yeah, I dunno, got nothing I'm afraid. Do hope everyone enjoys, though.

What do you guys think of Pokémon Sun Moon? and here's one more thing to dislike about MM, I really hate that guy.

Heh... That being your thought on Marvelous Man, REALLY curious what you'll think of the next page. ^^

Personally really looking forward to it. ^^ In particular I like the starters a good deal, very eager to see their fully-evolved forms. And really, REALLY wanna see the new Mega Evolutions for this Gen. Got my fingers crossed for Mega Dragonite.
