WOW...You know, I don't say things like this often...but there were panels this time out where the level of detail is/was DARROW-esque. Outstanding work :clap:

Hobo...your art's getting better and better. I can see your conscious effort at making everyone look different. :thumb:

And hey, Fanboy, your lettering's pretty good, too. :)

I really like the New York City old factory page. It really stands out to me. Excellent work all around, guys. I'm glad we got another installment before Christmas.

Page 55 is one of my favorites of the whole story so far. Stu Killed on that one.

Now I challenge everyone to dig through your old Valiant books and identify the homeless man. :D

At first glance I was hoping it was Rotwak. My main concern at this point (minor gripe) is that some of the characters seem out of character. (to me) The dialogue seems to be acting a bit more as exposition than actual dialogue I would expect from these characters.

Then again it might just be me.

BTW, I thought there are no sound effects in the Valiant universe (p. 53, panel 3).

There were sound effects in Valiant. Some can slip through.

:oops:

Lost count long ago . . . some get covered up because I put them in stupid places (like where the words need to go) and some are straight up red-herrings. :wink:
