Heheh... Yeah, this page was breezy but fun to do; just watching Sareena and Atlanta square off, with the pair of them both taking hits and feeling the force.

It was outlined hard in the scripts that Sareena doesn't use her magic-punch thing in fights with Cassidy or Paxton, since she's trying to win clean. With Atlanta though, because he's such a badass and because Sareena is clearly running a bit ragged at this point, so she has to bust it out. A nice touch to just show how dangerous Atlanta is compared to the others.

Not much to say on the page but still had fun with it, especially Atlanta flipping Sareena onto her face in that big middle panel. Oh, and the face-grab in the panel just before it. I've really grown to love face-grabs thanks to My Hero Academia, so need to do that more often.

Something of note about this page is that it was originally written at about double this length - very last minute I went in and rewrote things to split it into two separate pages (with some slight expansion on the second half) for various functional reasons. Partially was due to not being sure about the logistics of having an action page that went over 10 panels, partially was for story-pacing reasons. Should be able to go into more detail on the next page.

So yeah, if you didn't see the new Blue Blood Heroes, we're working on introducing more varied eye styles into the comics. We've been going through designing looks catered to individual characters, as seen on Sareena here; Atlanta's was kind of more just figured out on the fly since he wasn't part of our initial experimentation batch, but we're trying to kind of do them in installments. The initial wave of doing that covered the Blues kids, Decay Conductor, Sareena, Ana, and the Midnight Maiden, while we did a set last night of Misty, Sonia, Daryl, Callous, and the Peacekeepers. Kind of just a gradual process figuring the whole thing out, y'know?

Speaking of we've also been trying something slightly different with hair, though think it's not really drastically visible in this page. A funny thing, Sareena was initially accidentally drawn short-haired in that penultimate panel - actually a surprisingly decent look on her but highly doubt that's something we'll ever actually do.

Had to edit in Sareena's black eye and the mark on her throat, kind of easy to forget about in the midst of all the other art changes. ... I'm going to need to get better about that because she's probably going to need to have it for the next couple of chapters.

Very interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.
