See, it’s a culmination of everything that has come before it. Swords, radiating lines. That’s pretty much the whole comic right there. And look, Red is actually really bad at sword fighting, a point which comes up like 600 pages later. I totally planned that out. Yeah.

There’s also a rare borderless panel here. I think it works well. I like to do those but when the background bleeds into the surrounding panel gutters I never know what to do. Here I just made it fade to white, but that was easy because it’s an abstract background with a lot of white in it anyway.
