Yeah, this is one of those "Setting the stage" pages that just looks good. A lot of great little touches to this one I liked.

I was given free reign to put Starchild in whatever outfit I wanted here, so went with the third version of the costume since we hadn't seen it in a fight for a while. We actually had to both dig kinda deep to get full body references on it. Speaking of, great to see Feng and her crew again, was just far back enough that it felt weird to go back to drawing her.

I like that Hazel flips out over Alex being here; it nicely reminds everyone about their last fight at the train heist, and that Starchild and Hazel have tangled before. Guess he's still a little vindictive over their crew managing to foil the robbery.

Was fun drawing Alex's expression in the last few panels. So "what the fuck ever" in their opinion on the matter. Just looks great.

Kind of a weird one to comment on since it's kind of clearly just laying groundwork for what comes next given Mercy in the last panel.

I do though enjoy how, "Okay, fine, if I have to," Alex is about this whole thing. Pretty clearly a case where they're being compelled to make an apology for the train situation and so are just going about it in the most transparently reluctant way imaginable. After how emotional Alex has been the last couple of chapters having them more clearly annoyed and not invested I think is kind of a fun bit of whiplash. Speaking of, yeah, Alex is fairly prominent in this chapter despite this being their first appearance, though isn't quite the main character of it in this particular case.

Oh right, kind of surprised Adam didn't comment on the mustache guy.


He was some random extra that stood out on this page when we went back for references so made sense to bring him back. Like getting random recurring background characters like that, never will really amount to anything but it makes things feel more like a lived-in world I think.
