One aspect of this chapter that's sort of interesting to me is figuring out what certain characters wear when they're "off the clock." The answer I find is usually pretty interesting and can add something to the character so trying to be interesting with it. When drawing this page I had to directly ask Martin how Paxton dresses when he's not working as a member of the Patriot Initiative and was told "probably whatever he's got lying around."

Likewise enjoyed doing Cassidy here. Was told it would just be a suit, though didn't expect him to keep up the red, white, blue motif when I got the coloring back. ^^ For some reason when I got the script I could see Cassidy smoking in the chapter too, hence why he's doing so. Kinda wanted to put characters doing that into the comic more often since it can add a bit of personality to pages.

Likewise, I sorta wanna have certain characters wear make-up more often. What do you guys think of Brisco here?

Yeah, after some looking at three of the other members a couple chapters ago, with this bit I wanted to turn the focus a bit toward one of the other Patriot Initiative members we've to date not spent much time with, in this case Cassidy.

Also is an excuse to cut through some of the crazy on Cassidy and show a little bit more of his thought process, but that's something we'll see more of in the next couple of pages. Same for Cassidy's statement here that most of the group is seen as unnecessary - seems rather odd to come right out and admit that, doesn't it?

One thing this does draw attention to is the idea that the Patriot Initiative has been kind of specially put together for what's most marketable. That's been an idea for the group from day one and something we'll go more into later.

I think Brisco's showing off her vanity here, it's amazing they're able to give off the illusion of teamwork while they're working cause they clearly don't get along with each other.
