Here's page 13 of Fusion #10, and we cut back to what was going on with Alanna, James, and the refugees while Fusion was fighting Fracture. Things aren't looking good for the intrepid journalist.

So, Fusion for just in time rescue again :D
EssayBee 25th Nov 2014, 9:03 AM
Nope--she won't be in time. This is actually moving back in time a bit to what happened to Alanna after page 2 (during the time Fusion faced Fracture). This scene will end where the previous page ended.

Maybe I should add a "Minutes ago . . ." narrative box.
JustSomeGuy 25th Nov 2014, 10:21 AM
I think that would be a good idea, something like "One Minute Earlier..." or, "Meanwhile..."
But this is a very suspenseful page, and adding the time caption will only add to the drama.
EssayBee 25th Nov 2014, 12:29 PM
Page edited to include "Several minutes earlier . . ." box to establish time frame.

Yeah, thanks, that clarified that.

I just hope they will survive... - ...somehow...

Fusion better haul ass if she's going to help those refugees...!
KLCtheBookWorm 25th Nov 2014, 3:01 PM
It's gonna hurt no matter what, so pull the trigger already and get it over with!

And this is why I can't put books down when I finish a chapter. :p
Phantomskyler 25th Nov 2014, 4:10 PM
Hmm, Fusion's not gonna make it in time, so it's up to two possibilities: Alannna does something awesome, or another hero decides to "go rogue" as it were.
Black Rose 25th Nov 2014, 4:13 PM
Or perhaps that Fusion arrives to see dead bodies everywhere and frantically searches for Alanna's,just hoping she'll still be alive!
Phantomskyler 25th Nov 2014, 8:50 PM
Eeeh, Fusion is a pretty all-ages friendly book, so I doubt any of the refugees are going to be killed, or at the very least she won't find a field of bodies.

Way to be negative

Phantomskyler:probably no blood and gore, unless Essaybee is into the pre-code EC horror comics!

Wouldn't Fusion be more like the Kingdom Come Superman and unleash her fury in the capital of Darmar?

On a side note,would Essaybee go the New 52 route in future chapters?
Phantomskyler 28th Nov 2014, 7:42 AM
God I hope not Black Rose. That's mostly because I'm biased in the sense of I HATE the New 52 and all of the bitter grimdark bull**** going on in their comics.

Fusion has been a really upbeat and cheery book with some serious moments, and I really hope it stays that way. Too many stupidly dark superhero comics out there as it is.
EssayBee 29th Nov 2014, 7:03 PM
Phantomskyler--Fusion won't be getting significantly darker. As we move into the final story arc (beginning in Issue #12), the things that have been building since Issue #1 will come to a head--and much of it's not pretty--but things hopefully won't get too grim-dark. That said, many of the villains will have their dark sides unleashed in the final story arc (as well as the epilogue in Issue #11), so get ready to boo and hiss like never before (well, at least in Fusion).

As far as dark levels (for those concerned), although there will be very dark moments in the future, I have no intention of this ever being inappropriate for an All-Ages audience. And there will be lots of fun bits and (hopefully) lots of moments to cheer for in the future.

Essay Bee--like Phantomskyler,are YOU against DC's New 52? The reboot of it's entire universe?
EssayBee 30th Nov 2014, 6:22 PM
I read things by trade collection, so I'm not up-to-date on everything, but I love Azarello's Wonder Woman and Snyder's work on Batman. I enjoyed the first 2 volumes of Justice League--not the greatest, but they're fun. I enjoyed the first volume of Catwoman (but Brubaker's run on the series from a decade ago is far and away my favorite). Superman hasn't really sparked my interest (and he's one of my favorite characters). It seems to be pretty much like the pre-52 universe--some great stories and a lot of filler.

Who wants to see a fan art gallery here?
EssayBee 29th Nov 2014, 7:07 PM
Black Rose--When I get fanart (which isn't often), I love to post it as extra content between issues (and there will be a bit of fanart after this issue).

Also, over at theduckwebcomics.com, the past Quackcast (http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-194-adapted-adaptations) had Gunwallace play a theme song he composed for Fusion (it's in the first few minutes of the podcast). It's a cute little instrumental piece (with some charming scat singing) that I think captures the tone of Fusion pretty well.
Black Rose 29th Nov 2014, 11:36 PM
It would be nice to see Fusion rendered by other artists,even Kittyhawk-the creator of Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki.
Black Rose 1st Dec 2014, 10:38 AM
Essay Bee and/or anyone else here remember the pre-Code horror and crime comics published by EC Publishing?
EssayBee 1st Dec 2014, 11:37 AM
Well before I was born, but I did have some of the reprints, and I used to watch Tales from the Crypt on HBO on occasion. And I'm also familiar with the "Seduction of the Innocent" controversy that changed the industry in the 50s.
