Not sure how much I'll have to ay about this - not the most interesting thing in the world to comment on and all, plus all it is is a recap. A recap I didn't even write at that - left writing both this one and the BP recap to Adam, because I thought it might be easier to communicate things to someone new if the person's an outsider looking in on the writing process themselves. All I did was outline the stuff that needed to be brought up and correct some things after he sent me the first draft.

Lack of a Mercy mention is mostly because... Y'know, he hasn't actually <i>done</i> anything yet. He will be appearing in the next chapter so we will get to properly know him a little bit then.

There will be an update on Friday, but it'll just be running the corresponding BP recap which is going up there today. Nothing huge. Next week both comics will have more outright unique content.

One nice thing about this is it let us do a bunch of art of different characters all in one place which should make gathering colors for the next chapter much easier. Offhand can say for sure from this set that Dorothy, Sarabeth, Lillian, Laura, and Power will be in it, and there are a few others here I wouldn't rule out.

Bares mentioning the plan was already to do the recap pages even before the merger - the comics have gotten pretty long by this point and it gives us something we can link straight to in advertising the comic or trying to show it off to people.

Eheh... Sorry about the late reply, folks, I feel like I've been in a dream all night and just waking up. My dreams are boring; they mostly involve me watching Star Trek: Voyager.

But yeah, I wrote both the recaps. I asked Martin for bullet-points on what all should be covered and then just churned them out. I dunno, didn't enjoy the writing process too much but had some fun doing the art. Was a good chance to see a lot of faces all together in ways we hadn't seen 'em in a while. In particular liked Miss Mania. Wonder if she'll cameo given there are something related to her coming up in the next chapter.

I tried to re-vamp how I drew Living Weapon. I gave his face a sort of bulkiness to imply he had some form of Gigantism, but between the beard and the small size of the picture it's sorta hard to make out. Did discover looking back he wasn't huge enough. I mean, yeah, he was tall, but I couldn't really draw bulk that well. When I introduced Marvelous Man I learned in a hurry how to draw someone just super-wide and rippling with muscles, so was cool to go back and make him look like the mountain he's supposed to be.

That ending line is funny, but the costume he lost isn't his only one doesn't he have at least one more.

True, does still have the original, but given O'Hara told him she wanted to see him wearing it again, probably best off not using it, y'know?
