I don't think we've ever really seen Evilyn's powers before.

Last page of the chapter, although with long storylines one chapter will usually blend into the next.

Annie's long decline from Slugger to Strangler.
I figure Thomas subduing Zoe would be an unreasonable challenge, because he's not trying to hurt her.

He's a lot bigger than her, and if he just hit her as hard as he could, he'd probably knock her out in one or two hits. But she's being mind-controlled, so he can't just attack her like a normal threat.
I tried to make Mira's body here look like it wasn't the right proportions for her, because it wasn't designed for her.

The 300th page! While I haven't hosted the comic here that long, this month is also the eighth anniversary of me working on this comic.

On this page, it does seem strange we don't see Tabitha reacting or communicating with the others yet, but there's always a limited amount of room and I decided to push it until the next page.
A day late. Just busy this week, and didn't have as much time as I needed to finish it on the right day.

Page 300 next week.

Hopefully this pace is going well. Trying to go quickly enough this isn't getting boring, but not too fast to bypass some of these complex details.

I feel like this story is still going uphill a little, and once it starts going downhill and lot of stuff will happen quickly. I'm trying to get a lot of the explanations done early, so I won't have to explain as much during the action.

@dracone: Yeah, I've been typo-prone recently. Thanks, it's fixed now.

Like with the two pages with Tabitha and Evilyn, and the two pages with Connor and Grace, I had planned two pages with Annie and Thomas that was more characterization before moving on. But I thought what I had planned here could work later, and it felt like the right time to move ahead.
My original plan was Arim would laugh when Connor made a joke, but based on the conversation, it seemed like the guard needed more of a followup.

Well, this is awkward

I felt like if you wanted to get Arim to laugh, the cheesier the jokes the better.

This is to try to give some insight into her, and the personality we saw in the early chapters were just her pretending to be who she thought she needed to be. Without Mira around, she's struggling to hide her real personality.
@Xylas_Incarnum: Thanks, it's fixed. There were actually like three typos (pointed out at various places I post the comic). I always seem to edit the dialog at the last minute when I'm in a hurry and that's a recipe for typos.
you put down faction instead of fraction for that bit about how few bits of the crushed stones remain.
The thing I mentioned two pages ago and wasn't sure if people noticed or not, was that the first time Grace appeared, it showed that she was naturally blonde. There was a picture in her room of her and Connor, and she wasn't a goth there.

I figure whoever is mind-controlling her isn't concerned with keeping up her appearance, and she's reverted to what she looks like naturally-- until this is resolved.
@dracone: Maybe more like trainees.
Professional might be stretching things a bit
I suspect being a superhero, being called a sidekick when you aren't would be a big insult.
