This is our first double-splash page. I don't do these a lot but I felt like this particular sequence called for it. I didn't want to murder anyone's browser load times with a large size but the trade-off of keeping it the same size as a normal page is the tiny print.

The full sized version of this (which will require side-scrolling) can be found here.

The Full Sized Version Looks Amazing, Great Job!

Full size is definitely better but I didn't want to make it too hard for people with smaller screens.

Very nice! You might want to see if you can load up the full size version with a smaller size callout in the HTML. Then the text will be readable when people zoom in.

Damned wights. Don't they realize that a school is a non-smoking area, hmmm?

I like how the wight's purple squeezin's just kind of oozed out of his eyes and mouth. Nice touch!

Is someone going to take off her goggles to see who she is?

This is slated to be gotten into like 2 story arcs from now but... in this world, superheroes have the right to conceal their identity unless they have in some way as a hero done things to break the law.

I don't go into detail of the history in the upcoming story but the long and short of it is that in 1982, Congress passed the Heroic Exigency Act which was designed to protect the people who were making the sacrifice of being a hero. As long as you're acting as a hero (not a villain!), if you choose to conceal your identity, you cannot be forced to reveal it even by law enforcement. This act made deliberately outing a superhero against that hero's will a crime.

This law, which has many other provisions, was passed so that heroes would not be afraid to do things like LL just did for fear of having their ID exposed and their lives and those of their family and friends threatened by villains. Congress feared that if outing of heroes became a thing, we'd have no heroes and would thus be vulnerable to the Nightchantresses and Mountain Men of the world -- and AEGIS is not powerful enough to stop them all.

It's one thing for Deena and Jackson to semi-privately confront Abby and quietly tell her "we think you're LL." It'd be another for one of them to rip her goggles of in public and tell the world that she is. That'd get Dee and Jay into a lot of trouble.

I explain this here because in the story I wrote, these things are hinted at in the dialogue but not fully explained so there is no harm in explaining it here.

That's a long way of saying -- no, probably no one would even think to take off her goggles and see who it is.

A good page, as always!

While I love the art, what is more impressive is the story. Thank you for sharing it with us.

As I have said many times, I am a writer, not an artist. I only do this as a comic because the story fits that medium more than prose.

For someone who's not an artist you make some remarkably good art.

Is there anything else you've written?

Nothing that I have ever posted. A couple of fantasy novels years and years ago... neither is all that great.

I am working on a fantasy novel series right now (because I never do anything small!), but it won't be ready for prime time for some years.

Thanks for the kind words.
