The Impact Players are one of those ideas that could only come from Martin. Their deal, to spoil a bit, is they're some sort of Ginyu-Force-meets-New-Day-meets-High-School-Drama-Club bunch who commit crimes in the name of performance art. Designing them was already fun enough, going super high-energy and bouncey, but once we actually introduced this group in the comics I just had so much fun drawing them. Lots of goofy poses, lots of madness. Want this to be a group that when you see them, you get a big smile on yuor face.

I mean, just look at how happy they all are! Y'know why Alex doesn't give a shit in the last panel? It's because they're obviously not here to attack him; they're too busy saving the local community center from being bulldozed! And after that they're gonna teach some children how to read! It's okay! The Impact Players are gonna make a difference in somebody's life today!

Yeah, can genuinely say I liked this group of "villains" enough that I'm jealous they're not in Blues. Maybe it's for the best; if they tried fighting the Blues kids they run a legitimate risk that the good vibes will be so powerful that ice cream and candy will appear and everybody will stop fighting because they're best friends forever now!

The Impact Players have been an idea that's been batting around in my head for a long time now and it's good to finally get it out on paper. They were actually mentioned once WAAAAAAAAY before this...

theblackprincess.thecomicseries.com/comics/100/

... although if they had come up around that point they'd likely be very different in terms of execution so I'm kind of glad I've been spinning my wheels on them for so long.

More to go into that when we see a little more of them but yeah, really happy to finally get this lot out there. For what it's worth they'll be showing up in Militant Gold whenever it gets underway (it's mainly what they were come up with for) and it's probable that at some point they'll in some way end up in Blues for whatever reason. Adam's actually said he kind of regrets that they didn't end up worked into the current chapter.

Alex's expression in the last panel is priceless, talk about a group of whackjob idiots.
