Hostage – Part 10

MARCH ’06: The original commentary was two lines long and pretty much sucked, so I’ll try and muster up something better for you all now.

First of all, let me say that,t o this day, those are still probably the best speed and focus lines I’ve ever drawn, and one of the most dynamic sets of panels I’ve ever done as well. By dynamic I mean I could see it animated in my head with very little effort. I’m proud of that display to this day, even if the close up of Hiaté’s face looks a touch wonky.

Some may remember Aquablazen from the flashback. How Hiaté gets AB is explained later in the story, so anyone who hasn’t gotten that far yet can just keep going. I won’t ruin it for you. The rest of you probably know what I’m talking about. Or, at least, I’d hope so. At least some good guesses. ._.;

This was also the first page to be subjected to ratings in the forums. this system died because nobody cared eventually. For those curious, it got an average rating of 4.8 out of 5.

May ’10: Hey, Sam from four years ago!  You had three typos in the commentary alone. I’ve upped and fixed them, and expect you to send me compensation once you’re employed via the Paypal account you’ll set up around 2008.  PS: in 2009, you date your dream girl, then lose her and your job.  Oh, and you drop out of college.  Hope you weren’t hoping for too much, you silly person!  Don’t worry, you’ll grow up eventually, but obviously not by May of 2010.

That said, hey, Sam from 2020, tell us how things have improved come the Year of Vision!  Luls, I made a funny.
