I really like that one shot of Jake looking over his shoulder. Someone about the pose and expression feels like one of the better shots of him I've ever done.

Sometimes I worry that I'm too devoted to realism in these stories. I mean, superhero stories are largely escapist fantasy, especially when you have them involve children the way this one is. Drawing attention to the danger of it like this might be jarring, and would make Jake look like a jerk, so a funner, more irrelevant feel might've been better toward this.

But at the same time, not highlighting it might make Jake look like a monster who doesn't care about the kids well-being. I'm happy with the feel I went with on Blue Blood Heroes, but it's worth wondering about, I think.

Not too much to say on this one, as has been the case for the last few pages, but do think it came out pretty well. Believe there are two more pages in the chapter - might be three but pretty sure it's two.

In either case, this is another one of tose cases of playing up the red and blue motif. I don't really know that I like how it's used here, given it gives red kind of a negative connotation, but still, the core idea of the two standing as two sides of something will probably pop up a lot.
