Think this page is a good example of the recent move we've been making toward having more elaborate backgrounds. Next page also has that going on but sadly due to where the majority of the chapter's set that won't really be keeping up for most of the upcoming pages, more than likely.

Do really like how that graffiti came out - basically I just told Adam to whip up a trashy-looking gas station bathroom and this is what he came up with. Honestly pretty tame compared to some of them, though it does still have some stuff like the random puddle of some ambiguous but likely gross liquid in the floor there.

You know, it's pretty damn impressive Alex managed to get those tights on that fast while presumably still holding the vest the whole time. Then again, I'd probably rather do that then set something I'm about to wear on that floor.

Not sure if this'll be Power's only appearance in the chapter or not; she might show up toward the end but it really just depends on what I deem important toward the end of it. Haven't finished writing the chapter yet, though am fairly close to the end by now. Either way, yeah, this page was a late addition for a few different reasons, namely to set up some stuff for later, help establish some pertinent information like that O'Hara does not know who Alex is, and just to have a little fun, snippy conversation in there to balance things out a little between that Lillian scene and what's coming next.

Yeah, the floor thing kinda worried me when drawing Alex getting dressed. I guess he could put those in the sink?

Yeah, my favorite panel, oddly enough, is the one in Power's office rather than the gas station ones. Feels like the office is more complete, and I really love the rain effects on the window. Probably should've done more with those. Likewise, was very happy with the rain in the first panel. Took a lot less time than you think. ^^

I probably could've gone more extreme with the bathroom; I didn't realize how tame it was until I saw it in color, then I realized I should've had way more puddles, stains and graffiti. I did like the graffiti we did have at least, tried to think of some funny or clever stuff for those. I'm not sure how well you guys can see it, but under that recurring "BLU BLUD" tag someone wrote "Who keeps writing these?"

Oh, right, got the idea for the T-Rex skull because apparently Vince McMahon has that in his office. From what I know about the guy, wouldn't be surprised if Power has one or two similarities in managerial styles.

Oh Power is such a massive pain, man that woman is annoying, and the graffiti is super bizarre.
