We have now returned to our regular schedule. Hope you'll enjoy. ^^ We're about halfway(ish) through the chapter, so should be a smooth ride until the end from now. This is one of the only remaining pages to be very demanding.

Rather proud we got it out in time; page was a bit of a rush job and love the final result. The first panel looks so great with how all the colors just pop. Big great punch of super-hero action right to the face all in one panel. Also since this chapter is about celebrating the Status Quo, there's something neat about acknowledging that the status quo for Alex includes being a cool superhero. ^^

Bit tired so dunno what to saw here, but result is just great... Curious who this guy is and what his deal is... Hope everybody enjoys.

Thanks for baring with us during the reduced schedule, sorry for the trouble. Really hope everyone is going to join what all's still to come; as Adam mentioned this is the halfway point of the chapter, not exactly a secret that it's going to have 28 pages given the gimmick of this one and all.

So Alex runs into this mysterious man again... only to end up running into the same end results. It won't be nearly as long of a wait to revisit this guy, I'll go ahead and confirm now that the next chapter will see him pop up again in a more substantive context. This was kind of just a reminder of that plot thread before it becomes relevant again.

Also being seen again is Occam, who you might remember from one page in the Christmas chapter. We like his design a lot so kind of felt like a waste to not have him turn up so long as we have a page focused on a group of vigilantes anyway.

Oh, and might as well comment on the costume Alex has on. It's the same one we saw back in Fire Night as a throw-together for going after O'Hara. It turning up here was kind of mostly an in-joke; one concern with the gimmick of the chapter in theory was that I'd have to be constantly putting together new colors for outfits and we joked about using this costume for no reason just to keep Starchild from being an exception, then I decided it actually did make logical sense for Alex to be wearing it and it'd be fun to see it again so I worked it in. Though we will at the least be seeing Candice's school uniform again anyway so there'll be at least one recycled set of outfit colors anyway so...

Eh. In either case hope everybody enjoys this one. Kind of didn't expect to have this much to say on this one honestly, more to unpack with it than I thought.
