Nnng. Something about this page was unpleasant to both me and Martin. Was a pain to draw and color. I guess just the sudden, unexpected fight scene....

One particular shame is that John's coloring is much redder here, burning-up, like Heather in Blues. The implication of that, coupled with the line about making ice, is that to do so he just has Ellen make a wall of water and John just absorbs the thermal energy from it. But you can't really tell due to the blackout thing in this page. Pity.

IIII really wanna go into more detail about that thing in the last panel, but can't really discuss since it's a spoiler. While Martin's talked a lot about what's going to happen with it, it wasn't until doing this page that I asked what it's supposed to look like. Martin said something like an ornate, carved stone. Think it wound up looking like a Standing Stone from Skyrim.

I'm going to avoid going on a rant and just say that SummerSlam was absolutely garbage. Better than Mania 32 but still probably one of the worst PPVs I've ever seen.

But yeah, this page... Basically just a quick bit of Section 24 in action to sign off on, something to show off their skills and let them breathe a little. Plus give an action beat since it's a superhero comic that's had almost no fighting in it this chapter, though this isn't the first chapter like that or anything.

But yeah, this is wrapping it up with Section 24 for now. Honestly probably could've stood to have a little more follow-through with them, but chapter's on kind of a time crunch wanting to keep up a good pace and go through a lot of stories relatively fast. Doesn't help I really want to get into the next chapter sometime in October and it's looking like I might miss the mark a little bit on that one, but not too hugely.

Either case, hopefully everyone enjoys this. As said that thing in the last panel is something we'll be revisiting, isn't just a throwaway for the purposes of this story or anything.

On Friday we turn over to Sareena. Three more stories left in this chapter counting that one.

Interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.
