"I distinctly recall the cat leaving us be before the fight began. They were away to rest for the moment from the trip when the fight happened... when your small, big fights tend to sound like but a whisper sometimes. But up close, it was a roaring battle of words. I never thought the father I thought I could trust would wind up going on to serve the war to the bigger end: the Civil War for us didn't end by the time I spent my first three years in London. But by then, I didn't want to go back." - Vinnie, in a journal

"Sometimes things must come to an end, and while I could have prayed harder than ever to ignore it, I felt it was my solemn priveledge to go out there and fight. Maybe it was wrong of me to kick him out, but Terrance is something of a sore subject; I lost my son, him, and now my wife is ill. I think when this is all said and done, I am going to retire gracefully in the big city." - Jim, in his later years

I really should have worked on this longer, because I am not quite pleased with the results.

The idea was to have Vinnie and Jim fight on top of what looked like a broken mirror or some tiles showing things from Issue 4 and a few new images. However, a mishap with alphas and my indecisions to decide on how to place it, made it look pretty bad. I don't think it could've worked any other way without blocking -something- to the viewer which can't read (I'm still trying to break away from broken panels and divvy things up, artsy-wise). So i went with what I know how to do and just stuck with it. A shadow would've been placed in the middle to show the result of Vinnie's actions.

I also couldn't greyscale the bottom left for some reason, so I left the characters like that. Alas. :/

This is loosely modelled on a real life event, quicky summarized (and thankfully said incident was resolved, so peace is prevailant. :3), but I tried to incorporate it here.

It's not my best of pages, but maybe the next one will turn out okay. The Marvel project and the bakery logo design I went for were in between the comic schedule, and free time with my girl friend, which I think I needed most. xD It gets tough drawing back-to-back-to-back-to-back, lol.

Because I'm not too confident with this page, I'm not gonna ask for critique on this one. xD My art fatigue is showing.
