Let's start with Martin's comments, shall we?
This one I just colored the other day - it had been sitting for awhile but I wasn't able to get it to color it. Had I not gotten it that night probably was going to ask Adam to handle it.

So, yeah, fortunately it's a pretty light page albeit one I'm happy with it. Lot of dialogue here naturally - fortunately the next sequence coming up has a lot less of it for the most part.

So, this is why Power is blond at the moment, to up her credibility. We'll be seeing her again in the next page with that still going on for the moment.

Oh, and we go back to the Monroe subject too, so I imagine everyone can guess which plot we're seguing into next.

So, anyone have any theories on the girl Sarabeth's talking to yet?

And now for my comments:
One thing that you don't think about for comics but is actually really hard is that circular layout for the speech-blocks so they'll fit nicely in the little balloons. I've been really, really anal about it since day one and by now I'm pretty damn good at it. When I see professionally-printed comics I own that do a poor job of it, I get really annoyed.

I'm a little embarrassed here.... I've always had the option of having the rounded-squares balloons, which look passively like the circular ones but give way, way more leeway for the formatting and makes doing it way easier. But I've stuck with the circular ones out of stupid pride. Here there was such a large amount of dialog that making it circular would've taken up too much volume compared to a square formatting, so wound up having to go that way.

.... Yeah, got nothing else to say beyond that. This page was pretty simple and easy.

Oh please Power you're one to talk and Sarabeth never wanted to be the leader of Eight Sin in the first place, I am still drawing a complete blank on that woman. Was Sarabeth forced into becoming Eight Sin's leader?

More or less, yeah. ^^ We'll likely find out more about it down the line.
