That is one calm baby. With a father like that, I suppose she knows she’s the one who’s going to have to hold it together…
And oo! Some pretty art on this page! I have to say that I love what Adam and Vero did with this scene. I just keep coming back to look at the pages and I’ve seen them like a million times. I really am amazingly lucky to be able to work with such gifted artists.
And speaking of lucky, look at that! We’re now well over halfway to the next bonus page. Less than $160 to go! Woot!

Thank you ALL so, so much!
All right! There were LOTS of reactions in the comments to the introduction of the other Young Protectors. About all kinds of stuff! For example, some folks think “Spooky Jones” is the coolest superhero name ever; other think it’s the lamest ever. (I’m not going to take sides on that one, other than to say that those who think the name “Spooky Jones” is cool are totally right.) Some folks love Kyle’s costume; others think he needs an intervention from the fashion police. And many folks expressed a wish that there were more women on the team! (A reaction I am actually glad to hear, especially in response to what ostensibly is a “yaoi” comic. There are of course reasons Commander chose to form a team composed exclusively of guys—and it’s something I look forward to exploring—but if I were a reader, gender parity would be something I would ask for too, so it makes me feel close to y’all. )
Anyhoo, keep the reactions coming. We’re going to see a lot more of the team in action. And tune in next page to see more thrilling experiments with gravity!
EDIT 8/5/12 3:27 PM: DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! Thanks to your amazing generosity, the donation bar has just hit its target. That mean that in addition to the regular page update on Saturday (Page 4!), there will be a bonus update this Wednesday, August 8th (Page 3!)! You all ROCK! Hope to see you there!
