Today's our 250th page! Woo! Remember, the 251st won't be on Friday due to it not actually being the start of the new month (or rather, because I could use the extra week to get a bit further ahead and this makes for a nice excuse), so WaR's bonus Friday page won't come until the Friday after that. Sorry about the trouble there.

That being said... This page was a nightmare to color. Not due to the art, but rather my own fault; I wound up deciding to, and this is why I don't do this, do some of the coloring after finishing a given panel, then saved the rest for after finishing the other clean-up. But I forgot to switch back to black from the dark grey I was using, so I ended up cutting off all sorts of lines and having things bleeding out once I actually started coloring it. Wound up having to play around with it for awhile before I found a quick fix.

To mark the 250th page though, we have Alex and John seeing each other for the first time since the prologue! That issue will be touched on a little in the next page, but mostly it'll be waiting until toward the end of the chapter while they deal with more pressing matters first.

We also get Ellen, always good. And that multi-haired guy in the first couple of panels... Funny thing about that, I wound up making him a cameo of a wrestler, Seth Rollins, because Adam had already put that split in the hair (though it's not the same exact style) and Rollins too wears a vest like that and all black. Had to draw in the beard but still, thought that was worth including in there. Irony is I don't even like Rollins that much, it just happened to work out that this was a great place to give him a cameo of sorts. Might wind up having Adam slip his partners in there sometime soon, they'd fit too and kind of might as well finish the set. We'll see on that though.

Anyway, hope everyone enjoys, and thank you to everyone who has been reading so far and who will keep doing so as we move forward. We'll be meeting White Noise very soon, though if you've been reading Black Princess as well you already met her a couple of chapters ago.

Oh, and about the jacket... We'll get details on that a few pages from now.

The hair-split really is striking. ^^ After all the surprise cameos I shove into the comics, always cool when he surprises me with one. Added the beard too.

Not terribly pleased with the page, which sucks 'cause I like getting a good one every 50 or so. Mostly due to my continued failure to draw cars. Middle panel looks really bad. Ah, well. ^^ Maybe by 300 I'll have that down better.

Not much else to say, but I'm scatter-brained and a little tired... Sorry. ^^ By the time of the next update I'll be 26.

Don't worry Adam a lot of people have trouble drawing cars so you shouldn't feel bad about it. I'm guessing we're going to get more info on Bullet Time in the next page and I'm also guessing White Noise is going to show up in a way like that image of her on the year 3 preview.

We won't quite be getting information on Bullet Time in the next one, but it will happen in the next few pages. Will be getting a bit more information on how he tends to work, how his powers function, and what his real name is, among some other things.

But yeah, support means a lot, thanks. Some more practice with cars will probably come soon though, given a few chapters from now in BP we'll be featuring them properly. More details will come on that.

Appreciate the support; was in the mood that night where I could've herd it. ^^
