Haha, you have me rooting for Crosscut half the time and groaning at the puns the rest of the time. I do indeed get a comic book feel from this piece, the old-fashioned kind, not the dark and gritty styles of some more recent series. I suppose my one little niggly comment would be that it's absolutely male-centric but then comics are like that. At least you haven't put in a window-dressing female sidekick yet

It appears I picked the best night to not be able to sleep because I get to read a nice shiny chapter straight away. Yay! Now when do I get to ever say that? :D

Crosscut managed to get out of his pickle and save the day following the hero's mantra. It's good to learn more about the extent of his powers and know a bit more about him. It certainly deepens his character and it's already making me theorise what effect this will have in the story. I do hope this isn't the last of Jewel either. Prison break out will be likely required but I'm sure he's worth it. After all, he is the villain that (temporarily) got rid of Strike City's defender. I'd vouch for him.

And, of course, in true comic style there's a cliffhanger leading into the next arc. Very eager for more.
Until next time,

The Jewel is working the mocking villain archetype like a model works a catwalk. Fabulously. And speaking of working catwalks, I can imagine a fully blinged out suits of armour will be the next fashion trend of Autumn/Winter 2017: Villain edition.

And Crosscut's back! Does this mean the other Strike City heroes might end up popping in all Avengers style? Yes... no... maybe so? Anyway, it's interesting to get the chance to learn a bit more about him, even if it is rather briefly in this single dramatic chapter. There's still plenty of questions lingering though - mainly about his eyes and what happened after the roof collapse? But I guess I'll have to hang on for that one. I'm more than alright with that though.

Also, the start of something much bigger, eh. How exciting! I really can't wait to see how this pans out. Certainly something to stay tuned in for. Until next time,

Is this sci fi? I thought it was a genre all its own. I'm not familiar with the superheroes you've been writing about, but I'm sure they have their own following, and they'd love your writing for sure. I'm not too sure what Crosscut's powers are apart from blinking in and out of the place, but I wish him luck cause the Jewel actually sounds kinda cool with his powers. Bling armour? Awesome!
