God, okay, taking a jog in 95-degree heat was NOT the smartest idea I've ever had. That was five hours ago and I'm still worn out.

Anyway, next section here, with Paxton as the main character. ^^ In general the chapter highlights a lot of characters who haven't been able to display much depth. ... Not exclusively, but a lot of them are folks like that. Paxton is someone with large plans who hasn't been given much to do.

Liked very much doing the lightning on this page. Bright spotlights give it this golden feel... Kinda like the idea that the Patriot Initiative garner support by having these half-wrestling-shows-half-political-rallies.

Martin's always been a big fan of wrestling, and after drawing this page I actually did ask "So was this based on an actual Wrestling event?" I think he said not specifically, but there were instances where he'd seen similar things happen.

Had been a while since we've seen Mr. Atlanta. To keep him from looking at all like Marvelous Man, I played up some of the skiviness of him, making him look more like a thug. 100% just to keep him from getting confused with Marvelous Man's generic-as-fuck charm.

Yeah, one thing that does bare mentioning, though it'll be a little bit before we can fully explore it, is that Mr. Atlanta isn't quite the same type of character as Marvelous Man. On paper, a bit, but think in terms of their actual characters, motivations, and the scale of their abilities they're pretty far apart.

But the focus right now isn't on him, it's on Paxton. Adam mentioned to me when I started with this that he wasn't sure how well Paxton would take to having a more depressed sort of story about him and wound up quite enjoying where it went, so hopefully that applies for readers as well.

In general over the next few chapters we'll be devoting a good bit of time to fleshing out different members of the Patriot Initiative and spotlighting them. One of them besides Paxton will be stepping into the spotlight for a little bit in this one.

Interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.
