Yeah, again, I tend to really like writing things with Alex and Xandy together, even if it's just by phone. Usually I just feel good about things after doing so.

That being said, this page marks all we're really going to see of the Alex and Xandy conversation, with things going back to Melissa in the next one. I really could've done a whole lot more with the two of them, but for the purposes of what's going on I thought it kind of helped to only see a snippet of it and to get a little back and forth in there. Talking to Xandy will likely become a semi-regular thing in the story from this point anyway, so we'll see more of her, no worries. And she's still in the next page regardless.

That being said, about Alex and the issue with his parents, it's probably kind of easy to tell some of the happenings there with what Alex leads in with in his explanation here, but we'll get more on that down the line.

Yeah, more of Xandy would definitely be welcomed. Loved doing this little sequence just for her. The directions in the script just focused on her talking in her room, the only note being the vases on the windowsill and the flower-twirling, so I was free to brainstorm up more adorable body language for her.

If anything annoyed I didn't put more cutesy stuff in the room. Little tea-party-chair and stuffed toys were something at least.

Speaking of the flowers on the windowsill.... yeah, remember those. ^^

Not much else to say about that, but do like the warm fuzziness of the conversation, which I think nicely conveys how much Alex loves his kid. I also like how he tries to break the rather adult news about his estrangement from his folks down for her. ^^

D'awwww ^^ the only thing that could of made this cuter would be if she was playing with like a pushie of the anime charater alex's costume is based off of.

On the subject of Alex's mom and dad when are they going to appear in the comic proper? and are Narcisco annd Ivy League going to be in the next chapter along with Barbwire?

Alex's parents will likely appear at some point, but I'm not too sure when; chances are it'll be a chapter dealing with Alex's school days that's awhile down the line, but we'll see, they might show up before then. Narcisco and Ivy League are not in the next chapter, though, as neither is particularly interested in the vigilante community as a whole. Narcisco is kinda-sorta involved in it, however.

I think I've figured out what Xandy's secret is, and if I'm right man what a shocker I was not expecting you to use Adam's idea on one of your characters Martin.
