Heh. It's weird, not that long ago I was thinking "It's been a while since we've done the Daredevil effect" and now both this page and tomorrow's Blues one are having it in a row.

Okay, just gonna admit it, I drew this page after seeing Deadpool so that's why Ivy is in the "Superhero landing" pose after her mid-air-knee-to-the-face. As Deadpool says "It's bad for your knees" and that's probably why her leg's in a brace. I love the idea that Ivy is a grizzled, badass veteran whose body's been ripped apart by getting way too far into her chosen lifestyle. Sort of like Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler (Martin described her having trashy, damaged, badly-dyed hair, so I draw it to resemble Mickey's in the film).

To that end, love how Ivy fights throughout this sequence. It could come off like she's just going up against a lot of Jobbers so she looks good, but the way she moves she really owns it. Not so much in the last page but moving forward I wanna try and have her pulling these obscene wrestling stunts where possible.

I friggin' KNOW we're getting new readers from those ads. If you're bothering to read these comments, leave some of your own.

Hasn't really been that long on the Daredevil effect - had a little bit of it in Blues a few pages ago when they jumped on the building.

Yeah, Ivy has a lot of showmanship in this chapter written into the script even, and I imagine Adam's probably going to bring a lot of that into motion the more the chapter progresses on. Really wanting to kind of play up the spectacle with all of this, kind of show why people make a point of coming out to watch these fights every year.

Didn't realize this page was as low on extras as it is. That'll be changing soon as we'll be seeing a bunch more in the next page, but still.

Bet Hazel's happy Mercy didn't last particularly long. Wonder how Hazel's going to do when it comes time for his turn at bat?

In the fourth panel you forgot Alex's cast, this is neat looking forward to seeing what happens next.
