Here’s another dramatic page from Jonathan Rector.  I love the stuff he does with shadows on this page.  I tried to hunt down the video where he livestreamed making this page, as looking at how he shaped the black on the page was fascinating stuff.  Sadly, I couldn’t find it, but if it surfaces I shall share!  That last panel is a cracker.  I never imagined the mystery assailant’s arm being red here, that was an addition by colorist Ray Dillon.  But I actually think it works rather well, and so we kept it.

You’ll notice that in the Characters tag on this page, we refer to the unknown attacker as “The Dawn.”  This was the working title I used for the character in the script at this early point in the narrative where they stand unrevealed, though I don’t believe they’re ever directly called that in the comic.
