Yeah, Martin liked Pearce's bizarre rolling-tackle attack so much in the last panel he asked that it be used as a Dynamic Entry for this chapter. Was admittedly sorta surprised he was being featured for this particular scene; guess he was kinda just too fun to leave alone for long. He had to show back up. ^^

Actually one thing I realized doing that rolling tackle a second time; something about Pearce reminds me of Chris Farley. Like, more muscle less fat, but between the wide girth and bulk and the not-entirely-dangerous nature there's something about the guy. I think it's the way his moves are a weird blend of being graceful and acrobatic but also violent and reckless. When you look at Farley's slapstick comedy that's kinda the best descriptor for how he moved.

Oh, and uh.... Sarabeth's here too. She's a character I never need to look up the references for, so I don't remember the last time we saw her.

Hey, who had bets on Pearce showing up in this chapter? Four pages in?

Yeah, this chapter gets right into the thick of it, in a likely pretty unexpected way. Kind of unsure what to say on it given the last panel is really what captures the attention here - still, is also good to see Sarabeth again, first time she's shown up since the Halloween chapter and that was just for a single panel.

Probably have more to say on the next couple pages. Some stuff I'm really looking forward to coming up before too long.

Oh! Wait, there is one more thing. That jacket Alex has on - you might recognize it as the jacket that was briefly worn toward the end of the first costume's shelf life and at the start of the second's.

Basically it was decided to try and make things look more wintery in this chapter and thus add a jacket to the Starchild costume, and then we remembered that Alex didn't actually have that jacket with him when O'Hara took the second costume. As a result hey, here it is! With added blue flower!

One subtle touch is I actually made its colors different from that on the costume. Wanted to really put over it's a recycled part of a different version of the costume and was made separately from it.

Well, well, well this is certainly interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.
