Page 4: issues 6 (The Trial) and Special 2 (Sysyphus Part 2)

I'm putting together a crossover project, in the vein of the Crossover Wars. If interested in participating, e-mail me at or PQ me here.

Top page: Now to Sparkle, who I had to restrain a little differently. I have a Hulk comic (actually, a Marvel Adventures comic, but focused on the Hulk) where the Leader imprisons Hulk in such a field. Of course, Hulk breaks free, but I wanted to show here that Sparkle can't break free.She may be Hulk-like, but she's not Hulk-level. And the mysterious character brings up Sparkle's sparkles, which I do have a legitimate reason for and I'll bring it up eventually in-comic. It isn't just to make her look pretty.

Bottom page: So Celine Quickenice and Max Catnap have come to help their boss. Why isn't Max looking at the reader/Tempore? Well, as his thought balloon suggests, he's medium aware and is reading the title of the comic, gathering a little bit of information where he can. And speaking of thought balloons, I think this one looks far better than that lumpy monstrosity I used at the end of issue 3. Maybe I'll do them like that more often.
Also, Catnap brings up an interesting point: Sisyphus is misspelled. I have a reason (not very good, but I have one), but I would want readers to guess this, at least for a little while. It should become apparent why if you've read all my issue titles so far (or to come). I know at some point I'll have an issue title that gives it all away.

Tomorrow: Sparkle is further briefed and Tempore faces three powerful adversaries
