The ticking second hand is probably the most pointless thing I've ever done. I'm proud.

After all the bombast of the mostly shoot/kick/sex/kick again/shoot more action hooks that set things in motion, it's nice for me to start really getting into the plot points and motivations -- and out of the goddamn Skybank.

I am so sick of drawing the damn Skybank, I can't even tell you.

Wait, I might have.

Thank you! There's something so fun about a character who refuses to conform to the serious tone of a conversation...

Arguably still the funniest page.

Here is another scene where we start in the middle. Who are these goons? Why do they use cables with arrows that hang from the ceiling? We can try to figure it out, but we are not told. We now know that the bad guy brought the hands of Artemis with him, but we almost have to read between the lines. The clocks on the wall are the right kind of mystery, hinting at the story to come, but the unknown enemy in the doorway is just a story which needs to be told more clearly.

Okay, now that I am reading this first issue for a second time, I finally understand what is happening in this scene on this page. This scene begins with the boss bad guy going to the clinic to get his infusions. The infusions are administered by the bad guy with the lab coat. The infusions come from a dozen red tubes with pointed tips which descend from the ceiling. The boss bad guy enters and takes off his clothes and the medical bad guy inserts the tubes. The infusion starts. Then, the bad guy with the smiling mask enters and kicks his boss in the jaw, knocking him backward. And then, the artist starts to go ahead and draw the scene and put it on paper so the reader can see it.

Rendering only the second half of a scene like this gives the reader quite a challenge. At this point the job of the reader is to put the first part of the scene together in his head from the dialogue on the page. It is hard work, and as a reader I feel like an archaeologist, recreating a lot city from broken beams and shattered pieces of pottery.

Of course, there might be a more conventional approach to rendering this scene. A more usual approach might start by showing the story a an earlier point. In this approach, the boss bad guy might enter the medical bay, and the doctor could greet him by saying 'Ah, I am glad you could make it to your infusion today. Please take off your shirt and sit down over here while I attach these tubes so we can pump your medication into you." The leader would sit down while the medic attaches the tubes. The leader would say something like "Make it snappy, would you? I come here every week but you seem to get slower every time!" Then, we would hear a bump at the door. The medic would turn his head and say "Who's that? Are you expecting someone?" And the boss bad guy would say "Just my pet thug -- delivering a pair of arms!" And the story would continue from that moment with the page you already have. That way of telling the story would be much easier on the reader...
