Now that I've had few hours to calm down from the utter spazz I went through this morning, I can write a proper comment!
First off, the cliffhanger pacing was irritating but in a good way xD And a spread page is an amazing way to finish it off. And of course the whole pacing itself and the way it guides you through events is amazing (and art, and the mood ! everything!)
Then, duuude, I hoped Breis was going to survive, but I didn't expect THAT XD Marvellous. And on a second thought, yeah that "badass" remark came more out of relief like you mentioned since, gee, he really should look at those guys while pointing the gun at them, since they could just walk up and grab it away from him and beat him more :Ia Poor, scared bunny. I'm so glad he's not dead tho ;u;
Also one more thing, I LOVE the juxtaposition of the second panels on each page, it looks really damn good. And the semi-transparent speech bubbles too! It immediately gives you the impression of the distant sound playing in your head. (Since I always kinda "hear" what I read.)
And, hnnngh, Mr Underlashes, you're so handsome.
ST is perfect in its entirety, and I'll never be grateful enough they Muun and you made it happen. Just, thank you.
Excuse me the tl;dr, but... hnngh, so many emotions! Okay I shut up now ;_;' orz
I've gotten a little lost. There was one gunshot and obviously the trouble makers lying face down shows he got hit by one, but is the blonde hit also? It looks like it but I can't really tell. AHhhh I just can't tell!
That came to mind also. But I don't know, the way he's positioned and the facial expression on him still keep me guessing. But you're right in that it does rather look like that. So I guess we'll just have to wait for the next page to be published to find out!
