Wow did I half-ass coloring that bird cage. Guess I must've been in a hurry when I did this one.

I wasn't entirely clear when this chapter started if I was going to have Feng put in an appearance proper in this one or if it'd just be a cover appearance for her for the moment, but here's your answer as to how that went. She probably won't show up too often, if only because the translation thing can be a bit of a hassle, but it won't be too long before she shows up again. Well, it'll be Monday, but you know what I mean.

The guy in the second panel with the bag I like to call Asian Jake.

I tried to think of a sort of style for Feng that would set her apart from the other two crime bosses we've seen so far. Power is a movie-star with well-dressed and beautiful henchmen. AME is a band of thugs who act like normal low-lives.

I think Feng's group of criminals could be ones of culture and breeding, with very dignified-looking hideouts and facades covering up their dirty deeds.

Not sure how Eighth Sin's headquaters is gonna look. Maybe more like a normal office to highlight the "legitimate" side of the operation. There's another crime-boss in the next story arc whose motif is defined through the MO, and an upcoming villain in Blues who I think I can take in a certain direction.

Picking out the style makes this base, along with the AME HQ, one of my favorite settings for this chapter.
