Heheh... Yeah, really love how O'Hara came off here. I like the shot of ehr hiding behind the wood there, looking very spider-like, hiding in the crevices looking for a way to spread disease. It's really satisfying to see her without any bodyguard or force between herself and Alex, forced to rely entirely on herself.

I honestly really love the Non-Action Big Bad trope, to the point that I feel weird WaR has such a perfect, prominent example but there's nothing like that in Blues. Closest I can think of is Spencer (who's heavily inspired by Sakyo, one of my favorite Non-Action Big Bad), and not sure if he counts. Actually, come to think of it, maybe that's why I like the non-confrontational, businessman Lex Luthor to the one who runs around in Powered Armor. It's much more fascinating watching the villain beat the hero simply by staying just slightly out of reach.

And the bonus of THAT is the point where the villain is laid bare and has to fight for themselves. Tune in for the page after this; it's going to be satisfying.

Kind of a hard one to comment on, but pretty happy with how this one came out. Pretty much just O'Hara making her last desperate stand but basically having already lost at this point since she's not a fighter and didn't know about the time limit.

The time limit was something I had to be pretty mindful of in writing the last page incidentally - part of having Alex keep going back on the stage was basically just to keep from having O'Hara get to it while he was busy with McShay. Do think it worked for the benefit of that fight though, since it gave Alex a good way to constantly keep on the move against her and to even up the size advantage.

Way to go Alex and way to go Rin, looking forward to the next page.
