My favourite page of the chapter.  Jonathan Rector absolutely knocked this page out of the park, packing it full of devastating emotion and superb “acting” by our two characters.  The idea to do a reverse-negative silhouette on that last panel was all Jon’s idea, and it was a masterstroke.  There’s no dialogue here, with the implications of just what kind of abuse young Alex was put through left to hang in the air.  I knew I was asking a lot of Jon to convey that through his images, but he nailed it.  Heartbreaking stuff.
