Ok, I have a question JB.

I may be inking the above page, in the second panel I see you have indicated eyeballs for Wolverine. Did you intend them to be inked?


BTW, Awesome!!

Visible eyes only in the second and fourth panels. Artistic license!

Not to be greedy, but when the heck is Captain America going to show up???

••

An appeal of this imaginary "series" is not having to worry about editors telling me I can't use a character because he's in the middle of a 10 issue story arc.

That said, no Cap.

I was kidding about Cap. What we're seeing is plenty good.

Damn it, Logan! One second you're getting handsy with Kitty, and the next second she's falling out of the Blackbird.

Jerk!

The interior of the Black Bird is... wow. 

JB, what are the "x" marks for?

I put a lot of thought into positioning Logan's hands to avoid stimulating over-active imaginations. Guess that was a pipe dream.

They indicate the marked area is solid black.

I guess "handsy" was the wrong word. I get that he intended to spank her.

If that were in a comic these days, peoples heads would
explode. Not that Wolverine would care.

WHAT THE HECK!!! Can't believe we are getting this deep into the issue so quickly, that's another X-Citing page!! Nice to see the gang back together again!

Thanks John, this may well be the best thread EVER!

The pages keep getting better and better. So much fun, storytelling that actually moves along within the space of a few panels, exciting action... It's good, I tell ya!

Oh, surely not. The whole point is that nothing actually HAPPENS in the scene.

I missed the "spanking", to be honest, but it was clear they were rough-housing (friendly). Kitty is young and can't control her powers yet thus slipping through the plane......what a GREAT cliff hanger, literally. 

I'm chomping at the bit to see how this is resolved!

And to all the daring wanna-be inkers, I've really enjoyed seeing each person's take. 

In fact I think this has been such a fun thread, I wonder if it could become a regular exercise????

Hey JB, I'm having trouble making out all of the detail in the Blackbird panel. Would you mind sending the page to me so I can get a closer look? ;)

I want to make a prediction on what happens next, but I
don't want to jinx it. Better to keep any ideas to
ourselves.

OK, coming back with some more reaction after going back for a second look. First panel, love Kitty's pose, the looseness you've captured in her shoulder.. and then I checked out Wolverine's face at the back and it made me laugh.
