Looks like the cast is coming out in droves in this one. Including the BP debut of Rage - for now, he's only really included as sort of a joke on the way the last chapter tied into WaR's, but he will most likely be showing up again in some more notable capacity. We'll be sure to explain properly who he is when that happens.
Besides that, we've got Alex, Stephanie again, John, and Lara from back in Hidden Flame. Weird to think John has appearances in four consecutive chapters at this point, given how minor his roles in this chapter and the last one are, but still.
Anyway, yeah. Naturally, this page alone isn't what got Alex on the cover - we'll be coming back to him later.
I think this is the first time John's kid sister has been mentioned in any of these comics. It's funny, they know about his powers and they know about his sexuality, but he keeps his family in the dark about his job. Actually, that's sorta touching, they might only be ashamed about semi-legal activities, not anything else. ^^
Speaking of John, I got to put him in that jacket again, which was a big bonus. I think it looks good on him, though his shoulders came out too broad in the shot.
Also in fashion news, Wow, Rage looks good in a suit. Martin said in the script that that's apparently what he wears when he's not in costume and in that case maybe I should've given him something more casual than a double-breasted number, but wow. Looks good. ^^
Also, I actually forgot to put Laura in this one until just when I was about to send the page to Martin for coloring, meaning I had to step back and edit her back in.
Boy, Lara sure popped up out of nowhere and are we going to find out why Alex is busy on the third?
Yeah, we'll be learning that later on into Days Go By. Everything from this point takes place after that's wrapped up, though we won't be going into direct detail on the things that happen down the line there yet.
