Page 18: 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
 
Also, Heroes Alliance, here on Drunk Duck, has begun uploading a story I wrote and many drew.  Sure, I drew more pages than anyone else, but there is some great art in it, too.  I wrote the story two years ago, so it's nice to see it finally going up.  It's updating daily and is epic in length.
 
Onto the page at hand: The Gunman really is creepy, isn't he?  I only dropped some hinting dialogue before, but really wanted to get across the way he is with his guns.  He's the sort of mercenary people don't want to hire because he creeps them out.  Still, he gets the job done and my characters would be dead right now if he adjusted to the air being like water a little quicker.
Also, the Swimmer finally uses her power during the Caper.  And the Runner does try to use that utility belt, sothat counts for something.  It just leaves Eiderdown and Sparkle as the only ones not to use their powers yet in this storyline.  I also like panel 10.  The Swimmer now has a pattern of doing something like that to the Runner, doesn't she?  And he doesn't know her power, so it rightfully confuses him.
Panel 11 taught me that I'm no good at drawing braids, though.  The Gunman's hair looks so odd in that picture.  Serves me right for creating a character with a braid.
