God, I thought the last page was cute. I love seeing Grant freak out like this and Alex having to calm him down. Hell, one cute note in the script for this I loved in second panel Grant is supposed to be just starting to calm down, with Christina taking note of it. Sweet little moment you can just see with the two of them. Plus you have Sareena back to being her spunky self in her poses and such.... Yeah, page was a lot of fun pose-and-expression-wise. ^^

It's always been a gag idea that Grant's a bad liar but it actually doesn't come up much in Blues... Honestly, I can't think of that many scenarios where he has to lie. He and his friends don't really keep secrets from each other, and anytime the superhero thing had someone else there to bail him out. Well, okay, I guess Valerie did until recently. Wonder how Grant managed to stay quiet about THAT. Then again, he also seemed surprised nobody else knew, so it's probably more likely nobody asked him.

Another tiny gag I like is Alex's lingering gaze toward Daryl; I like the idea that he half-recognizes another super-hero even after a sex change.

.... OH! Right, Grant's other super-power is sonic screaming. I don't think we've.... Wait, yeah, no, we HAVE brought it up in WaR. Just checking. Because the windows line.

I actually kind of went through a lot of back and forth in my head over what all fights to do in this chapter. Considered a fair few of them, including at a point Alex vs. Grant, but ultimately decided to keep it on the lighter end of things, particularly given it's looking like a decent-length chapter anyway and is a part one of two.

But yeah, this one was kind of just written for some back and forth on things, lot of playing the characters off of each other. In general been having quite a bit of fun kind of simultaneously playing Christina a little nicer and a bit more as a straight man to what all's going on.

Really not sure what else I have to say offhand but hopefully everyone enjoys.

In the first panel who is Grant talking about when he says Dar, very interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.

Sorry, was actually Christina and the tail went to Grant by mistake, fixed now. Is just a shortened form of Dorothy.
