I love when I get a page back from Martin fully-colored and I just go "Goddamn." This was a "Goddamn" page. ^^ That last panel came out awesome.

Surprisingly enough we see O'Hara for the first time since her re-design. Didn't realize she hadn't shown up yet (okay, was in BP but couldn't see her that well). I especially like the re-design since she looks not only more unique, but much more sick and diseased. As it was she looked oddly similar to Rin without his glasses in the past (mostly because of the haircuts) but this way she's very distinct and has a sort of obvious malice about her. Playing up the sick, decaying aspect I think works out great, showing that she operates like a plague rat, infecting everything she touches. .... Insert Walter White joke here.

In retrospect though, I'm afraid we might've made Christina look a bit too different from the last time we saw her. She looks distinct but also not entirely recognizable. Granted, it likely doesn't help that it's been a while since we've seen her period and I don't think she was really intended to be a major character. But yeah, either way, that's her. ^^

And yeah, starting to see some blood. That was something we had planned from the start for this fight; we really haven't had a bloodbath in any of the comics yet. They've all got ones planned in the future (Yes, even Blues) so was great to get into some real, knuckle-bleeding action for the first time here.

I actually had a pretty different stance planned for O'Hara in the second panel, but was having a hard time communicating it and I wasn't able to figure out how exactly to draw it for reference. No huge deal though.

At least with Christina we did show off her design before this, so people'd have some idea it's coming. And she was growing her hair out a little last time we saw here so makes sense it'd be a bit thicker now. Though that's pretty fast growing hair, if you stop and break it down it's really only been around a couple of weeks or so. Webcomic time.

But whatever, still happy with the page. Hope everybody enjoys!

A bloodbath in Blues, that would be hard for the kids to explain, wonder what's going to happen next.
