You guys, I’m so excited . . . we released two new pages this week, and Sam “Electric Artist” Albert really outdid herself.

On Tuesday, we shared Page 176, in which Dr. February lists off the Decapus’s 10 methods of attack. I thought it would be fun to do something different, break away from our normal 6-panel grid, and take up a whole page with a list. Abi came up with most of these weapons; I think I pushed for the freeze ray? I know Magic, Plant, Sickness, and Evil are all hers. Normally we wouldn’t lay out a page like this, because it’s hard to tell what order to read the panels in, but since it’s a list, the panels don’t matter. The reader is free to find her own path. And those tentacles really look great, don’t they?

Today, we shared Page 177, in which the battle with the Decapus begins. I’m a big fan of a lot of things Sam did here, but in particular I’ll point out the sense of movement and excitement, which is important in a fight scene. The Electric Team had such an easy time destroying the robots last issue, but we can see that they’re in big trouble now. Look at how overwhelmed they are–and the Decapus has only used five of its ten arms! Things are looking bad. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see the next page.
