Remember how I said this chapter was a cinch to draw? This page was likely the hardest. And even then it wasn't really hard so much as tedious. Had to get all the margins right and even then, it came out sloppy.

Ah, screw that, there's where I plug my comic and gush to Martin. Big cameo! The letter read here is from one of the main characters in Blue Blood Heroes, Wright As Rayne's sister-series. You can read it here-

Feel dumb announcing this when the first chapter isn't done yet and there's not much to show off. Especially not a lot of Grant, the kid who wrote the letter. He's a big super-hero geek and Martin and I have written a number of stories of him and Alex meeting each other. I suggested he get a cameo just as a name in his inbox, and Martin did me one better by making him the focus of a whole page. ^^

This is why I love the guy, really owe him for this. ^^ Thanks a ton.

The "Blue Gene," as you'll find if you read the other comic, is a genetic irregularity that gives you super-powers and turns your blood blue. Please, give the comic a look. ^^

Yeah, onto the actual page, not much to say. As tedious as it was (likely took more time to finish than all the other panels) I did like doing Alex's inbox. Was fun coming up with people he'd get e-mails from and what about.

I actually let Adam write Grant's e-mail himself, I just wrote the reply. Made this one easy to write for me, but I'm not surprised that there was more difficulty than expected with it.

Speaking of, any of you wonder if some of those names will be relevant later? I bet Grow-It-Big will be.

What's funny about this page is initially it was intended to help set up Blues. Then that wound up coming much earlier than planned so it turned into more of a plug.

Daaww & the crossover begins. I think I'm gonna have fun watching how these two will connect more.
