For what John's referring to here, see chapter five of The Black Princess. See, the connections start off early.

Pretty happy with this one. Might be a little wordy, but we at least get a little bit shown off of all of the Section 24 members. Including Ellen - remember how in the prologue she didn't have any dialogue? She's making up for lost time here.

Actually, she was intended to talk last time, but it had to be trimmed for space. This does make for a nice subversion, in my opinion at least, of the silent badass that the prologue had her looking like, though.

Besides that, we're pretty decently introduced to John at this point - he had the prologue, The Black Flame, and The Hidden Flame (no, the similarity of those names wasn't on purpose) featuring him heavily and all - but the other three we'll be getting to know a bit as this chapter goes on. It's not a very long one, the shortest to date in fact, but I think it does a good job of setting up this group, which we'll be seeing more of moving forward.

I like the casual feeling of this whole scene- I'm a big fan of Villains Out Shopping as a Trope, and teams bonding just by hanging out casually like this. In particular I like Gaspeed just reading the paper. For some reason I just find that way too funny. ^^

Eighth Sin is just generally fun to draw since the group is so varied and colorful. I put some effort into make Ellen look cute now that she's talking, though not sure how well it came out.
