Heheh.... Yeah, like I said, only put the hug with Xandy and Alex in the first crossover chapter because it felt like Alex deserved it. Didn't think it would come back up in the inevitable reunion, and this was a great thing to go back and see. ^^ My main complaint on the re-draw of Xandy and Alex's hug was that in the original Xandy was clearly pulling an Aside Glance looking directly at the camera....
Their reunion was here....

Speaking of, we also get a call-back to when ALex helped Grant out of his depression by calmly explaining that Marvelous Man didn't ruin their chance to be heroes. Again, a really sweet, loving moment that was great to re-visit. ^^
Alex pulling Grant out of his hole was here.

Idea in the flashback picture is that it's a second after the actual picture, with Alex's expression switching to being calmer and more accepting, and Grant's legs having come down slightly. Alex doesn't even care that Grant's almost certainly smearing Dorothy's hair with ice cream.

In the middle of doing the shading for that panel it hit me that I should've had it so Grant suddenly realizing he's shoved his face into Dorothy's boobs and his entire face turning blue in embarrassment/horror. I sort of want to do that gag later. ^^

I really should've colored this one sooner than I did. Kind of put it off and it eventually kind of fell into juggling it with trying to watch the Royal Rumble to where I only actually finished with about 45 minutes to spare, then we had to shade it. It really kind of led to us both really having to scramble and I feel bad about it. ... The show was very good at least?

So yeah, some Blue Blood Heroes callbacks, those crossovers wound up advancing more in Blues than they did in WaR so it felt appropriate to bring them in here now that they're relevant. ... Well, okay, I guess Grant hugging Alex isn't really terribly relevant but it was a cute scene. Funny thing is I think the next page also has a Blues callback? Not sure, I forget the exact sequence of what happens in which script.

... I imagine that's going to be an even worse problem than usual for me for awhile because both chapters 27 and 28 are already full written. I'm taking a break from scripts for a bit given that though.

Eh. Either way, this chapter's pretty near the end but we clearly aren't quite there yet. Hopefully everyone enjoys this and what else is still to come.

Wonder who's having a harder time wrapping their head around this.

Heh. It is a pretty odd situation and all.
