Can't believe we are on page 20 already. There are only a few more pages until the end of the issue... It doesn't seem possible it has gone by so fast.

This page came out fairly well, but the entire scene kept giving me lighting trouble. I am honestly so glad I don't have to deal with 3DeLight for lighting anymore.

Now you see why you don't even tell your friends.

Yes... but it's hard for someone like Abby, who is basically honest.

she desperately does not want to lie, but she does not wish to reveal either. Her dodges are not bad though, and come off as spur of the moment ideas. Well done!

She is trying to keep her secret without outright lying to her two best friends. Just one of the hazards of being a superhero. (Which she technically isn't... yet... she's just a girl with powers so far.)

Yep, I get it. For some odd reason, this page reminded me of a couple times in my career when I was interviewing for a new job and couldn't tell my friends at my old job; sort of a self-imposed non-disclosure agreement.

The worst was when I actually landed the new job and decided that for my protection, my SI-NDA should continue and I shouldn't tell anybody at my old job where I was going, not even my friends. You know, for fear of somebody trying to scuttle my new opportunity now that I've given my notice at my old company. Yes, there were times when I suspected that evil could have its way, and what would be worse than having given your resignation and then losing the new opportunity because some jerk knew somebody who knew somebody? So my policy was to put up an information wall.

Whenever you make such a decision to keep info from the bad people, it's probably best that you keep it from the good people too. It keeps them from being put into a bad position and prevents accidental disclosure because nobody can disclose if they don't know anything. So those are the good reasons for doing it.

But when you can't tell ANYBODY, not even your best friends at work. That sucks, and it's so very hard for anybody who is basically honest and even minimally social. It's not even a little bit better when you tell them that you can't tell them, and not even if the reasons are all .. reasonable. In fact, that's worse.

So finally I get to my point. "Something happened to me downtown yesterday but I can't tell you what it was." Yeah, right! I can relate to Abbey's dilemma.

Wow, great comment.

To me, the most fun thing about superheroes, other than the powers and the super-fights, is the secret identity. So you can expect Abby to have to deal with that for many issues to come.

This isn't to say that she will never tell anyone, or that nobody will ever find out. But she's always going to have a secret ID to protect, and decisions like this to wrestle with.
