I had been looking forward to seeing what changed when I redid the first page, and I am pleased with how much easier it was to add all the complexities. The words on the banner don't look quite right but I haven't practiced writing that big on an angle before much less with the tablet so I will let it slide. Anyway you all should come back Monday once the flashback is over. Until then I will be adding the finishing touches on the new versions of page 1-3 and working on the wallpapers for those who donated. I made sure that I blocked out a bunch of free time this weekend with no one around to interrupt my drawing.

Tee hee! Yeah, a script would help.

yep giving Robin a detailed explanation of my goals and plans could only help ;)

I love the parallelism to the first version. I can imagine the director giving Robin a little shove in between panels 5 and 6.

Can I take the ellipse to mean monsieur Director is not on his A game?
Or is working for the director like working for the government? 9-5 and only on weekdays, regardless of what needs to get done.

Edit: I'd imagine the health benefits of working for a force of creation would be great,once you get past the lack of hazard pay. I mean seriously her first job is a showdown with the potentially only person who CAN'T detect the director, and she gets a cuppa and a schadenfreude inspired shirt. We know Sparky's not working off the script ; )

The ellipse can be interpreted many ways, since there are many reasons that giving robin a paper detailing the plans for the future would be a bad idea. even if Robin plays nice (not likely i know but lets pretend) then someone else could steal it. even if a villain doesn't end up knowing the future and the mind of god it would still reak havic with the morall of the main characters. do i have free will or not? were they only nice to me because it was in the script?
or maybe i am simply building it up for later. ya i like that one it makes me sound a lot more together then if i was winging it with out a script.

Edit: this time i a anounceing an edit to see if the readers like that better then just madeing the change to the comment behind the scenes.

Edit 2: so i said that but forgot to actually make the edit. well here it is. while the health benefits don't include anesthetics or pain medication the character's do get plot armor which can save them from practically anything.

'plot armor' Thank you! I had the vague notion of that in my head, but didn't want to express it without some catchy term. My metaphorical hat, were I to be wearing one, is off to you good sir!

I am now envisioning a wiki leaks type storyline down the road. The script wouldn't even have to be legitimate. Just get enough things right to cause a panic.
It ... Would . . .Be . . .GLORIOUS!!
But than I'm not a very nice person ^^

if you liked plot armor you should really spend some time reading tv tropes there is tones of stuff like that there. also why do you choose to not wear a metaphorical hat? no one can see them so they go with every possible outfit.

I'll check it out.

As to my lack of headwear, I believe it is convention to remove hats, however awesome, upon entering a building.
