I absolutely love Day's mask, it's really a shame we don't see it full-on, but not like the viewers didn't get a look in fillers and such.

Still, it does make things more visually interesting. The script for this was full of ideas being tossed out to make the scene of "two girls talk with guy on monitor" more appealing visually than it would normally be. Same thing with the next page.

Though that first panel wasn't what was intended. ^^ Kinda what I thought it sounded like from the script but meant to be something different. Don't recall exactly what. Maybe they were meant to be pantless in that panel or something.

Yeah, how much we had seen Day's face in the fillers was kind of why I decided to not show it a lot in the comic; just figured it wouldn't have too much impact for the moment just having him show up with it straight. We'll undoubtedly see the mask more down the line, but I do like the gimmick of him talking with his back to who he's talking to. Though there's a specific reason he chooses to do that which will come up later.

Weirdly pointy jaws in this page. In general I've kind of noticed those have been pointer since the switch to coloring in MS. Not sure if how they were before was a result of the color conversion thing we had to do there that led to the lines being so jagged, or if it's just a shift in Adam's art, but either way.

Not sure what all else to say on this one. I do really like writing for Day so far; I sort of tried to do something a little different with him. Wanted kind of the character of a typical straightforward, scheming villain obviously holding something over your head, but I wanted him to be a lot more casual and less rehearsed-sounding about it than the typical for that kind of thing. So far even if he's not in many pages just yet, I'm enjoying writing for him.

Day has only been in two pages so far yet he already comes across as a total oddball, and funny how they talk about accents in a purely visual medium.

Yeah, but accents aren't impossible if they can be written phonetically, hence why we tweak Misty's dialog to display her pronunciations. Ben Grimm has had a Brooklyn accent for decades.
