Page 6: issues 5 (On the Run) and Special 1 (Sysyphus Part 1)

Top page: Yes, Sparkle is a lot like the Hulk.  However, she doesn't have a “normal” form to revert to, and this hurts her personal life.  Plus, as you can see, her power actually stunted her intellectual development.  I like to think part of her problem was simply being nervous when taking a test, which wouldn't help with a power that reduces one's mental faculties when an emotional state increases.  Considering she gets this way with any emotion, not just anger (though anger does make her power react best), it's understandable that she might not be at 100% mental capacity.  Also: I got undue thrill putting that magazine cover in there.  Yes, the woman on there looks horribly unlike any person ever, but it's really the idea behind the thing.
Bottom page: When I first thought of the idea for this special issue, this exchange was going to be very cordial.  But I realized that I could hint at things that may happen in the future, and also show just how obsessed Tempore has become.  Sure, he never has cared about relationships with other beings, but as an order guardian, one would know he's all about following the rules.  That he breaks one here, and shows no remorse about it, is telling, I think.  To me he really seems very sinister and villainous on this page.  I feel sorry for Time, but glad for him that another thing I toyed with ended up not happenning (…yet).
But mentioned on this page is the Queue of the KAMics.  I'm getting closer to getting Tempore to being where he needs to be for the 2012 Halloween Cameo Caper with this mention.
Tomorrow: The second half of Sparkle's story and Tempore sets his sights on the Queue.
