You're obfuscating the quote there...

Since when haven't I?

It'll get a little more breathing room on a following page.

Yeah, that background in panel one is dynamite.

Thanks! I can't promise that level of execution everywhere, but at least I'm now past that point where backgrounds/establishing shots used to be a dreaded chore.

Also, graffiti is FUN.

I take it from the smiley faces that the good captain isn't actually a one man show

Or maybe he's just got a really dedicated fan base i dunno

Protagonist slashing his/her way through hordes of goons = standard action movie

Protagonist sending waves of their own forces at the opponent's goons prior to wading into the fray to get the job done themselves = for lack of a better term epic

They're called the Smileys and when it comes to social unrest they make the other punks in AB look like a bunch of Mormon door knockers.

Hmm, did Sam forget to bring a camera crew, not budget for one, or intentionally not bring one for fear of identifying people to the authorities? I could easily see this being any of those cases.

Also, I see a missed opportunity: One of those buildings' walls could've had a full spray painted mural on it. What American coaster city is complete without some bizarre murals that make no sense whatsoever, and a few others that are nice to look at?

This is Farrell's Row. Murals and camera crews need not apply.

Not only the background, but the colour choice as well. Really sets sets the tone and mood. Good stuff.

Been screwing with the color since the beginning of the previous chapter, based on feedback from HapyCow. I am glad to hear that you're pleased with the results.

Do digital nomads ride digital camels?

And again, it is hinted that Sam's reputation proceeds him. But now I wonder if it's due to something he has done himself - or because of certain people he is associated with?

Also, this fuggin woman says "fuggin" a fuggin lot!

Still messing with the dialogue... I think it'll be upwards of a month before we find out how imperiled Sam is here.

Thanks... now I'm concerned that I set the bar a wee bit high...

A "cleaner" team in war zone? It's a good idea! :)

(Woo! I love your backgrounds in this entire scene - from previous pages until now.).

Heh, thanks!
