Umm, is it just me or does that rope look familiar?

Please note: These are work-in-progress colors. Vero should get me the final colors soon.

So!

So! Our heroes antics finally got The Man to show himself! Yay!

But… he seems stronger than last time. And he tossed away Mitch’s choo choo like it was a toy train. And he’s got that rope again. The rope that nearly killed Spooky.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much trouble are our heroes in now?

Tune in this Wednesday to find out! Hope to see you there! :smiley:

What else has Spooky got up his sleeve? Is there any of his surprises that will work without touching the ground?

That rope definately looks familiar.
Hmmmm…
A one weapon villain maybe?
A trade of water for circus?
Or something altogether new and unique?

Alright Alex, you made your choice! Now I know they cannot win this arc… And you can’t convince me otherwise‼ The only explanation is that this is a parallel universe kind of setting and Amanda and Spooky dying won’t interfer with the present time of /our/ universe; As to Flyboy’s fate, maybe he’ll fuse with his arm’s glowing and become a powerful sunglasses-ed wizard, and 25yrs later will travel back in time hoping to save his young self and end up killing these 2 innocent buddies. Amirite or am I right?

I know this is exagerated, but really, they couldn’t defeat the minions (are barely surviving them actually), and now the really powerful, really bad guy shows up… How could this turn out okay for Amanda, Mitch and Spooky?

I hate to agree with a negative assessment but, there is definitely a “no win” scenario shaping up here. I worry that Mitch can be choked mid-flight with catastrophic results. Unless, and this is a big one, he can overcome the magic with his belief that “he want’s to fly” with the noose and it loses it’s effectiveness. Trouble is, “glasses” guy is smiling!

Hmm. :slight_smile:

He likes to use things he knows works.

Welcome back, b3nc0!

They are definitely in a pickle. But Spooky is at his best when all the odds are against him. Will he be able to pull yet another rabbit out of his hat?

This is one of, if not the most, dangerous opponent he has ever faced. We’ll just have to see…

Laser Bear 4ever.

He definitely looks very confident.

Why is this man smiling?

He just saved a lot of money on his car insurance?

The concept behind the artwork and the artwork itself are pretty spectacular for this entire battle. It’s all just so cool looking!

That commercial did come to mind. :slight_smile:

Those came from Adam, and I really like those too.

Glad you like that, Julia!

Thank you, Lee! This was a fun scene to write, and even more fun to see what Adam and Vero do with it. I asked for the moon in the script and, IMHO, they delivered the sun, moon, and stars. :slight_smile:
