Hopefully you’ll recognise the two kids from the start of issue #2, who were snatched by Piper in his first appearance.  I’m sure you’ll be relieved to discover they’re alive and well!

I remember Jon having a lot of fun working on this page.  Those chains hanging around the cage were an effect he discovered with a tool on his new software at the time.  I love that shot of The Standard hugging the kids… seeing it now has made me think that really should have been a promotional banner for the Kickstarter.

Speaking of the Kickstarter, have you backed us yet?  We hit our funding goal yesterday!  A huge thanks to everyone who has supported us.  You’ve made my dream come true!  But this is just the beginning, keep an eye out for more stretch goals and bonuses throughout the campaign.  The first such bonus comes tonight at 7pm EST, where I’ll be delivering a live talk on the history of horror in comics, streaming worldwide, available exclusively to backers.  If you want to catch that, be sure to support us here!
