God, felt weird these past few days. A few stuff involving my current situation's been weighing on me these last few days, felt pretty empty inside.

It doesn't help that I'm really impressed with this page but it's hard to describe why without getting all snooty and intellectual. It nicely conveys a sense of motion; each panel is a new location or scene, but we the viewer can see how each location leads to another one. Partly because an earlier page in this chapter did that in reverse. Also I love how defeated this page works. I dunno if I conveyed it right, but is supposed to be one burst of energy running that slowly pans out until he taking more and more effort just to get to the car for the phone.

Yeah, in general this was probably a page that did better as a script; lineart kinda fell short in this case to convey the emotion. I dunno, trying to really sink in the sense of utter defeat.

Well, at least Alex can take solace in the fact he's been able to marry a man since he was fourteen!

Yeah, really wanted to play up with this page that that last burst of striking back against McShay and O'Hara genuinely was a last burst, Alex just throwing everything he had left in him to get out of that situation. He's very tough, but he's not superhuman.

I should've gone a little more half-and-half on the blood drying, it's weird that it just kind of completely does so between panels like that. Eh.

Not sure how much I've really got to say here but on the whole I am pretty happy with this one and hopefully everyone else is too. We'll be cutting back to Rin in the next page but we'll check back in with Alex before the chapter ends. Be getting a taste of what's to come next, too - three pages left I believe.

Oh poor Alex talk about being beaten within an inch of your life, he's going to be a complete mess when he faces off with Ivy.

Maybe he'll be able to find some way to pull it out, never know.
