The best one yet.

The 3rd pic on page 1, the close up of shadowman's face. GREAT! Masterful work Stu.

Maybe my favorite thing you have ever drawn.

It reminds me of BTE's face but with a mask and dark hair.

I have to say that this installment is perhaps the most compelling so far. Great work all around.

Awesome! Of course, my favorite part was the cameo of Bloodshot's haircut!

that was f***ing awesome. My hats off, you've wound the tension and drama perfectly tight. And that preview image for next installment is a thing of beauty. You've drawn the ghost of BWS out of that one.

The only thing that would make it better would be some Spider Alien goodness. (no seriously)
What we need is innovation and even revolution—but not so much in the form of marketing ploys and doohickeys. What is needed is bold creative vision, excellent stories, and brilliant storytelling, in a word, entertainment. -- Jim Shooter

Now that you mention it, I was thinking I might kill Sven in an future chapter.

A great chapter. The "direction" of the panels was fantastic, and I agree about the work on Shadowman. The detail and framing there was simply excellent. I'm not gushing but giving honest praise when I say that I don't think Hall could do any better on those sections. SWEET work :thumb: As for the story, it's definitely getting more intruging, but just one thing...I think, as an audience, there has been enough mystery for now. Let's get some answers :clap: Eagerly looking forward to the next story :thumb:
