Page 9: 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 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:
Top page: This issue seems to have very few words.  There are more wordless pages than I thought I would do.  I almost put the *Trip* sound-effect into panel 3, though.  But just like with his dad, he just wants to run away.  I can't say I wouldn't panic in such a situation, myself.
Bottom page: The four stories continue, and I'm glad this page actually advanced them, as such a page can easily be stagnation.  Tempore sees a moon in a sky which shouldn't have one, so his story is getting fun here.  Eiderdown and Fractal run into Hogan, who I couldn't resist putting into the Caper–it's tradition (well, I don't think he was there for 2010, but otherwise, he's been in them all).  Also, Eiderdown shows off her tri-lingual abilities, speaking in Lao, Spanish and English.  She often does it, not to show off, but because all three are natural to her and she therefore does it by reflex.  Also, we see Astral in his astral form and he and Sparkle head off into Tyrion, which actually makes them behind the curve, as all my other characters are doing something in Tyrion itself.  Finally, the Swimmer and the Runner follow the Gunman to a coffee shop.  I should have said cafe, or something, because this is not supposed to be the one Eiderdown and Fractal are in.  The walls are a different color, after all (and I didn't want all of them to meet just yet).
