Funny thing - I pictured John having a surprisingly big, nice house, but wound up surprised at just how much so it is one. There is a backstory to the place but I'll wait to get into that. Might come up as part of a future chapter, not sure - kicked around ideas for it.
Like the red motif with John's cars. Not something I thought of, Abe's idea there, but definitely appropriate.
For those without any exposure to John, I suggest you take a look at Wright as Rayne, found here - http://wrightasrayne.thecomicseries.com . This is the first real cross-comic interaction, but the next chapter will have events directly tied into those of WaR. Nothing too huge there but still, I suggest getting caught up on both comics.
Here are Abe's comments -
Who doesn't like a crossover. It worked for Angel-Buffy, Marvel-DC, and most recently Ben 10-Generator Rex, which I enjoyed greatly. Any who, we can see now that our hothead likes to work on his hot cars all of which seem to have a color scheme that I intended to be either read or some sort of orange color both of which are the fires of anger or aggression which given the characters nature you'd probably understand. All these cars were given a reference model but had no real design as I really suck as design of cars. Also, I'm no pretty sure how safe it is to keep a fire under a car for light but I think a professional fire starter would have enough sense to empty the gas tank before working on a car, and as we all know oil is not combustible. Just a minor note: I had this whole revamped look in mind for the character but it was decided best to keep all characters the same or at least sort similar as you may tell the differences very subtle. Finally, the coat being used as a mat is one thing, but if you think he's going to also use that as a rag to wipe off that oil I'd say it's a definite possibility.
Since I'm not the artist, don't have much to say on this. I do drawn John a lot for Wright As Rayne though, and I like some of the tweaks in his design here. The scrawnier look he gave him is a bit more distinct.
