It'll be great to finally see the issue!

By the way, I hope these are still going into print. I like to get myself physical copies.

Yes, indeed! Issue 8 will be available on IndyPlanet later this week 8) ! I had to take the previous issues down for some edits, but those will be back up soon, too.

FINALLY.

Well, I have to say so far I'm enjoying myself. Kimmick has always been one of my favorite characters and I definitely enjoy seeing her here and the idea that she may become an ally of PH in some manner. It's still too early to tell (and I've only seen the first few pages of the webcomic, admittedly) but I'm really enjoying myself seeing this.

Good to hear! I was super excited to have her return (5 issues later, even). The Hackers were pretty awful to Pride High back in Issue 4, but they're not ALL bad. Kimmick & Bouncer ftw!

I just realized--Unison is referring to himself in the singular right now. That's interesting, as he always calls himself "we".

Yep! His relationship with Wave Witch and his place among the Champions of Atlantis changed Fleet in a lot of ways. "We" now refers to the family he created with them.

Just a note: the pages for this year are dated as 2016. Just a small change, because the comic is still in the right order, but it would be nice to correct that.

I also wanted to say that I love this focus Americana has been getting. She's been a character I've been intrigued by since the beginning. I think it wasn't until this issue that I even knew she was female. Before this issue, all we had really was a half-shot of her mask, so there was a lot of mystery there.

:lol: I was really looking forward to the kiss. You can tell from the reactions that it's one of those photo worthy ones. I hope KO doesn't suddenly get all confused and go in denial.

I think now we can see what was being referred to in Reality Check's beginning. Too bad so much of the board denizens aren't around anymore, as this would likely have caused a flurry of posts, for sure.

Yup! It's an understatement to say that Smash and Crash were not very happy with the news!

I think we all could see the ending coming, admittedly; it's been YEARS waiting up for it.

But that aside, I did love the issue and how things played out. Was a bit surprised about Unison leaving (though it does make sense in context, and having read Reality Check) but overall I think it was one of the more solid issues the story has had so far.
