Woo, now to O'Hara's camp! The next few pages are pretty heavily experimental for us, but hopefully it all works out. I'm very happy with this sequence myself, and I'm hoping our readers will be too.

Not a whole lot to say on this one, though. The most established character present is Power's hired assassin (his name in the script, if this hasn't been said yet, is Dixon), and we mostly just have kind of an introduction to things coming from this Sister Patricia we heard from back in chapter one.

Speaking of her though... Yeah, remember her, she's not just a one-off or anything. She's going to be important to this storyline.

Anyway, yeah. Not a whole lot to say here, but we get back to O'Hara next week.

I feel kinda guilty how much I reference/homage TF2 in WaR, given Martin's not into it, but I couldn't help but put elements of The Sniper into Dixon. Doesn't help that I gave him a generic look at the end of the last chapter (not knowing he'd be playing a big role in this one) and had to come up with a more interesting look in a hurry. At least he ditches the shades here.

Ughhh.... Yeah, the crowd looks like grap, but I had no idea how to handle that. It was just way out of my comfort zone. Also think the stage could've looked better, maybe add a few more odd details... Yeah, there's a lot of room for improvement on this page in retrospect.

Still, as Martin said, this whole rest of the sequence is pretty experimental, and while I was really half-dreading the comic because of that, I really love how much fun we're having now that it's underway. Do think we get a lot of great shots and angles with it, hope you guys agree. ^^

Sister Patricia was mentioned on the first page of this chapter and I just looked through chapter one and couldn't find any mention of her has she appeared before?

No, this is her first appearance. Sort of a bit of an inversion from how O'Hara was introduced with the way we'll be learning about Patricia; she's first being introduced here and we'll see she's at least a known name around town later, but we won't get any real indicator of who she is until the next chapter. Though reading between the lines on what is learned about her with something a few pages from now in BP will give something of a hint on the deal with her.
