Heheh... Meanwhile, Alex and Occam are kicking ass and making the rounds catching criminals.

This is the sort of thing that's very easy to leave out of superhero stories; just the hero going around stopping crimes as they happen. Walking the beat as it were. Sometimes you can get really bogged down with the elaborate villains and major conflicts and there's nothing about helping with random acts of violence or spontaneous crime. When you get to it though, it can really help the hero feel like they're helping a wide variety of humans. Since by necessity I haven't been able to have the Blues kids do that until recently, it feels good to get to it in WaR. ^^

This shape-shifter who commits crimes and then changes her appearance to sneak away with the cash is Kim Million. I liked doing the difference between her criminal form and her inconspicuous forms; the form she takes for the robbery is muscular, taller than she normally is, and has both lizard-like eyes and an attention-grabbing scar that would distract from anything else about her appearance just in case she missed something innocuous. In her normal form I think she doesn't like her thicker eyebrows so she overcompensates for them by making her criminal form barely have any.

Sort of funny how long this one’s been delayed, between the filler last time and the extra page before that, but being what it is it’s not really a huge deal. Pretty hard scene change to a pretty throwaway scene and all, mostly just putting over these two’s continued partnership. The Kim Million name comes up in the next page but this is all we get of this character. At least for the time being, nothing in mind to bring her back but I dunno, maybe.

This is actually a bit of a reworking from a planned earlier bit. I wanted to have Patricia attack Alex during Moonlight on a Magic Night with a shapeshifting gun for hire in tow named Kim Million with that being what set up the Occam partnership, but ultimately in the name of pacing and plot structure did the bit with Maggi instead. Works out better on all fronts given we’ve done a Patricia chapter since anyway.

Next page we’ll be getting to some new faces. Sorta. Hope everyone enjoys what’s to come.
