Heheh.... Yeah, this was a fun one to draw.... How long has it been since Alex did his mist-spit?

Patricia showing back up was nice; I did several different versions of her eyes. I wanted her to look really deranged and dangerous, so I looked up how to do Yandere expressions, and that particular set is the one Martin liked best. You can see the alternates here. ^^

Matthias Grimm won't be showing up again, by the way. Martin just threw him in a as a random muscle to get beaten up. The ridiculously edgelord-y name made me try to give him an appropriately ridiculous design, resulting in this weird biker.... priest... punk... reaper-guy. Looks like a Mid-Level boss in an old-school Beat-Em-Up game.

I love how deranged and ready for action Alex looks when diving toward Matthias in the sixth panel. I do like the combat pragmatist angle with him, it's nice to see done consistently, especially since aside from Jake it never comes up much in Blues.

So remember this bit?


Yeah, bit of follow through on that; certainly not the extent of what's planned with it, but I thought it'd work for having a quick reminder that Patricia was still lingering around and it worked for fitting a snippet of action into the chapter in kind of a funny way. She's a character I always enjoy writing but obviously not really popped up in awhile.

That's the extent of our Starchild for the chapter, but it was good seeing the mach 3 costume again, hasn't shown up since Star Night. I forget if I mentioned before but the idea basically is that Alex keeps the third costume at the apartment and the second one at the gym. Would be coming from the apartment in this case so wearing this one this time around, though I do need to make that clear within the comic proper since last time we got kind of a point of reference on that we saw every costume being kept together in Dorothy's room.

I need to take kind of a deep dive on the mist at some point - I think it looks good both here and when it was done on Hazel in Blue Cold but I don't think I've quite landed it just the way I want it yet. Eh. I'm not entirely sure when the mist will show up again but it probably won't be a gigantic wait or anything.

Actually, speaking of Hazel, if anyone's wondering he's not in this chapter but he'll be in the next one.

Somebody needs to lock that woman up badly, very interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.

Right? She's gone over the deep end pretty quick. Glad you liked. ^^
