Well, that's part of an answer on the handcuff thing. This isn't quite all that Alex is planning, though, as he indicates.

So, what all to say here then... Amazing how that phone smacks against pavement so hard it bounces and it's still perfectly functional. I guess they make them more durable in the future. Also I like how over the past couple of fights Alex has gone from just the powder thing to basically having a straight-up utility belt, between the knives - come to think of it, we haven't been seeing the sheathe on his leg, have we?, the mist, imagine he'll make a habit of carrying handcuffs after this, cellphone...

Sort of an intent with Alex really, as he does new things I kind of want him to add them to his usual rotation, like how here he's again used his mask to get an opening to blind someone and all.

Not sure what all else to say here, but hope everyone enjoys and we'll see you on Friday. For some reason I kept thinking we were due for a bonus update last week; not sure why that is, but we'll have it this week so be sure to come by!

Really, because of the green around his mouth, I kinda imagine that power tastes like Fun Dip. A lovely candy I can never eat again because my teeth would vaporize if I tried it.

Heheh... Y'know how Alex loses the jacket here? That wasn't in the script; that was because Martin was sick to death of coloring that damn thing and told me to ditch it. Easy to draw and liked it myself, but did like I was told and got rid of it. ^^

I dunno about the phone breaking; I've seen some of those things take some serious punishment and other times just shatter like glass. Hell, go Google "Game Boy Survival Story" and you'll get stories of those things being thrown in the air and landing on concrete and still going.

..... Huh. Okay, clearly the solution is that Nintendo needs to make phones. I guess by the time the comic takes place, they are.

Looks like Blu Blud isn't the only graffiti on this page, and the knife sheathe on his leg has been missing since the first fight it appeared in.

Heh. Yeah, we could stand to be more consistent with that unfortunately. We're going to try and watch that more closely in the next chapter and beyond.
