Page 10: issues 9 (Marooned) and Halloween Special (Cluster One)

I'm putting together a crossover project for next year to run through multiple comics and hopefully benefit the Hero Initiative.  If you want to participate, e-mail me at karamesser@hotmail.com or PQ me on this site.
 
I've also started an IndieGoGo campaign to help me pay for artists for my projects.  Please go to the campaign site and donate some money.  I would appreciate it if you could give money.  There are some fun perks involved.  The site is here: http://igg.me/p/213480?a=408482
 
Top page: I'm nearing the end here, but I may be drawing it out a bit.  I'd first thought it might not get to be as long as other issues, but I'm not sure now.  The problem is I may not know exactly how to end this, considering I don't know if it's a natural ending point up to where I originally conceived.  We'll see.
 
Bottom page: Ah, I love Chaos.  And I couldn't resist making him do the shoulder-tapping fake-out, with a twist as only he could do it.  I figure that with him, whatever you think of should be possible, considering his vast power and chaotic nature.  Still, panel 5 interacting with panel 2 is my favorite part of this page.  Panel 7, meanwhile, was my attempt to have him do a Bugs Bunny (with the fire becoming more like ears and a fiery “mouth”, because he actually doesn't have one).  Of course, I gave him a pupil in that panel because I needed to show he was still looking at Tempore.
What I realized with this page, though, is that my new word balloon method makes it look odd on a white background.  It's annoying, because that is a reason I find the balloons difficult, anyways (since I don't have a proper lettering program).
