Heheh... Yeah, the second an armed gunman was going into a room with Xandy and Melissa in it, you know this had to be the result. One thing I threw in that I love is Alex in the sixth panel. Bursting in, looking disheveled, clearly having just bolted here without stopping or slowing down for any reason... Then immediately locking eyes on Tryton and tackling.... Yeah. Awesome way to end the page. ^^

Page required a lot of clean-up, was really tired when I did it.... Result is great, though. One touch I love is the way the light shines off of Tryton's armor. An unexpected perk of doing a Powered Armor villain. ^^

It's also a brief, good way of highlighting that Mercy and Luciana are here too. They were in the last page, but attention wasn't really being paid to them, so now we know they're here.

Hope everybody enjoys. ^^

Yeah, this has been a plan in place for a looooong time - Tryton being positioned to be a threat toward Xandy and Alex immediately going ballistic over it. Just felt like a pretty great moment for them, even if an obviously risky and reckless one. Very much established by now just how doting a parent Alex is.

Sort of a difficult one to comment on beyond that but am pretty happy with it. I do think it also works right away at helping to put over Tryton as a real trash bag; sort of something already made apparent with Arc's backstory but really wanted to emphasize it right away here.

I do like emphasizing that while Mercy recognizes the danger here, he's clearly not afraid; I feel like given his history he's probably been in life-threatening situations quite a few times in his life and is probably pretty used to facing danger. Hell, the last chapter he was in he nearly got roasted by Down.

Don't mess with Alex's loved ones, wonder what's going to happen next.
