XDDD Mjkj, you commented the exact minute I uploaded, lol! Though I think this isn't the first time... XDDD

Ren has yelled out the directive, but will Leela be able to respond?

XDDD If you steal Leela away, I don't think Mike's gonna get in that hammer to her face~! XDDD

I dont think michael is going to have any moral dilemma with hitting her like he was with Jinn. Going to get my music ready. www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHQLQ1Rc_Js

LOL! That's a rather appropriate soundtrack choice in the perspective of quite a few readers, I'd reckon XDDD

(Believe it or not, Leela does have a fan or two... ;D)

Who's laughing now, Leela? Who's laughing now?

Nice to see her with a shocked expression on her face. XD

rufiangel
This DID effectively wipe the smirk off her face~~! XD

(I like drawing Leela smirking though, that's her best expression XD)

Awww Roux!! Thank you!! :D *huggu* <333 I'm glad you're enjoying the action-y bits, I admit they're challenging and I still have much to learn, but it's very encouraging to know it's been working so far! :D <333

Cain... Mike... next time try to talk such plans a little less loud? They heard it all and they're much higher! :P

LOL Saari-nii shhhh! XDDD

Seriously though I guess they moved without anyone noticing? ... Either that or my perspective needs work, so let's go with the former XDDD

(Those strings reminds me so much of a Gypsy's marionette control :D)

Ah, a limit! Excellent. You done good, Cain! You're becoming worthy of the Cain factor, pfhhahah.

Michael you got dis! Get her!

Ehehehe, I should play a Gypsy some day XD

LOL, Cain is indeed upping his game a little, I'm so glad people are proud of him XDDD <3

Mike's on his way - watch him run! :D

Micheal is my favorite dude in this comic... I'm not sure why... I just have MAD respect for a bro with mad hammer skills.

As always, excellent page, my friend.

rufiangel
Oooh, that explains Ludwig a lot!! XD <333 I can see Ludwig and Mikey having totally mutual respect and unspoken understanding as they bump fists and hammerheads... XDDD

Thank you Outlaw~!! :D I am always so encouraged by your lovely remarks!

OMG so much suspense!! This is wonderfully orchestrated, and the tempo is perfect. You can see the panic and realization in her eyes!

rufiangel
Awww Proxy!! :D <3 Thank you so much, I'm especially happy to hear that from you! <3

Leela's shot, I considered doing a more mid-range shot to show her hands as well, but I guess I wanted to emphasise her expression in the end moreso than anything else. So your comment makes me glad I made that choice! :D
Crestlinger 11th Apr 2015, 6:42 AM edit delete reply
So what happens when Jinn is cut off? Beserker state? Dead puppet? Or free to think? Temporarily either way because the soulstone Leela has is on a timer.
rufiangel 11th Apr 2015, 5:16 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ahahaha, we'll see. :) But I will say that one of those options is impossible from the get go...

I still can't help but think he's trying to escape from something else caught in those pants whenever I see that. 'Ow, ow, ow, gotta get out of here!'
