Comic description

Alex Rayne is a superhero.

He has no powers, he isn't a boy scout, and he prefers 'vigilante', but that's what he is.

Atlanta, August 2026. Alex is attacked by a group representing Sarabeth Phoenix, head of a criminal empire. When he wakes up the next morning, his mind is now in the body of teenage girl Dorothy Wright. And now as a result, he has to use his abilities and the new guise of Starchild to help Sarabeth if he wants to return to normal.

Lesse... I'm 21. I read a good few webcomics, not nearly as many as I used to, but the ones I follow most closely these days are Misfile, Menage a 3, and Gunnerkrigg Court. Not a lot else to say.

This has been the plan for how the blowoff Alex / McShay fight would go down for a LONG time - just Alex overcoming the previous struggles and completely crushing her.

Few different reasons for that. One is one thing I've been kind of trying to convey is that while Alex can start big with her, she turns it around when he attempts to slow down the pace - thus the overall key to beat her is to not do that and just spend the entire time going full throttle.

Another one is it's been noticed Alex really does the, "Get my ass kicked until I get an opening and then fire back," routine a lot, and I have been wanting to break out of that box and show more of the side of Alex we saw in the Arc fight, where when he fires on all cylinders he's incredibly dangerous from the word go. Combine that with fighting rather dirty by kneeing McShay in the head with no real warning the last page and the fact McShay's probably been up all night while Alex has technically slept a couple of times and you get Alex blowing right through her when it comes go time.

Naturally also had to work in some comeuppance for Patricia there, even if not a huge amount - wanted to at least have Alex get her back for attacking him earlier.

Oh, and I'm sure this doesn't need explaining but the reason Alex is able to spit through the mask is set up WAY back here -

Yeah, the plan has been for Alex to get that cloth as a mask this entire time.

Heheh... Yeah, don't remember the last double-length page we did (think it was in WaR, since Blues was a while back) but really loved it. Alex having a sudden bum-rush for the bosses was great; very high-paced action with a friggin' great ending kick to McShay's face. ^^ Page was a bit rough to work on but really into the final result, ESPECIALLY the second half.

Kinda the one part that failed in the art stage was the bit where Alex grabs Patricia. She's supposed to be screaming until Alex grabs her, but I kinda muddled the lineart for it. Love the impact of the swing into the stage, though. Again, trying really hard to work on impact in fights, make them look like they HURT!

To taht effect, Martin actually sent me a reference for the final hit on McShay in the last panel. You can take a look at it here. My favorite part is what Bryan's doing with his arms in that image; it looks like he's surfing. I love that pose so much it was a conscious effort to NOT just have Alex doing the same thing. I didn't wanna look like I was wholesale copying it. .... Though admittedly now that I'm staring at that picture again typing this I kinda wish I'd just went ahead with it. ^^

Alex sure threw O'Hara for a loop, looking forward to the next page.

Really exhausted but yeah, this page was a lot of fun. Especially love Alex's kick-swing in the third panel. Great motion on that one.

One thing we see a lot of in this next sequence is O'Hara looking very OOC at Alex's sudden appearance. She always has a smug look since McShay or her minions are always close by to protect her, so she ooks very strange and shocked just at the idea of having Alex right next to her. Even with McShay only a short distance away and obviously able to manipulate the stage with her wood-powers. I felt really weird showing her this panicked, and was kinda second-guessing myself for a lot of her shots. I do like that kinda "evil-witch-ish" pose in the fourth panel though. "HISSSSSSS!
