Here’s the final page in Chapter 6 as things move quickly in a new direction for the entire T.N.A. organization. A new era awaits the Girls – and they are always ready. You shall see…
There will be a short “intermission” while I continue to get things in place.. Chapter 7 will have many things I’d originally planned for Chapter 6 before it took on a life of its own.
I’ll soon be posting a couple side-stories that will give you a little background on the Director, and our lovely and talented G4. The format for these will be a little different from the 5-panel pages like this one.
I’ve posted a full-size, free “sneak peek” of this page on my Patreon site so you can see what these pages look like before I reduce the size to post here. This page is also a little bigger at 1200 pixels wide, up from 1100. I can’t post a link to my Patreon, but you can find a link at my website, linked below.
We have a new character, Bindi, who is Melanie’s sister. I first introduced her here:
Bindi is a couple years younger than Melanie, and absolutely idolizes her. She’s a prodigy with computers and has a degree in journalism as well. She’s a great addition to the team.
If you are wondering who our contact “FireFly” is, this will bring you up to date:

10 years of enjoyment my friend. Truly you have perfected this series long ago and keep coming up with amazing ideas on panel works, lighting, props, diolauge, etc..
Wow, last page of this series, sure has been thrilling Rod.. a new horizon. Wonder what your creative mind is brewing up? And will you have a new title other than the Breitlenger Jar?
Sounds like a huge Twist coming up, now TnT are concerned about their jobs. Your panels are so brilliant in details, love the computer screen graphics, a talent I lack. Can't seem to come up with captivating ideas like you.
first, whenever I think of both of us as writers, I have to remember that you're putting hugely complex visuals to all your writing, and they're not drawn: They're compiled, processed, laid out, etc etc, and then rendered. So when I see the detail in this page, I'm reminded how lucky I am that I only have to make 'words'. The screens are terrific---so much detail, and one of them looks like a screen from Blender! (With the modules and "wires" connecting them---I've had nightmares about Blender...it's made for Martians, I swear!) Great maps, all kinds of pinned texts with great coloring, a map in no. 2 that is dynamite (and you know how to distribute text as part of the visual)...and then the NNC screen, which is a sweet takeoff on CNN, incl the top banner, menu bars, search icon, etc, in which you also incorporate slanted screens of the women. I'd get dizzy making all this!
Love how the story unfolds...and love the references to our majesty king T (fake news, closing down agencies, etc). I like that Bindi---who I do remember, as well as her journalism background---is sent undercover into the press. (I even read the text of the stories! I needed a freakin' magnifying glass, but I read them---you go all out!) (you should provide a .pdf!) And I love how the Slickie story turns into the fake story, w/ the Capitol graphic and headline, etc. Also, some really fun accompanying bits to the side, with what looks like a some nice photos too (yours, maybe?) You take us from the setup of their undercover operation, to its implementation, and leave us hanging for the next chapter (will it work? will they all come out alive?) And then there's your superb costumes and overall design, as well as the ever-inviting details...And the Director's scenes have him on the left, while the womens' scenes have them on the right (small detail, but it's part of a fine design). And the women, as always, look great. (If Betty, w/ her matching hair and bikini ((another class choice)) plans to come anywhere in the Midwest, they might wanna give her a coat...) (a weeeee bit cold out here, today...)
And---minor point---did you change the speakers' font? Didn't you use the rounder one before this---which you still use for headlines? This is just as good, no issue---but it looks different. Maybe it's just my age...
Beautifully put together---the colors, your lighting, the dress, the detailed screens...and your always fine, clear and gripping writing is given a cadillac to ride in via your visuals. A real pleasure that you've been doing this 10 years, and I second everyone else that it should continue another 2-300, minimum.
(Finally, thank you for your comment on my Veterans Day upload---I couldn't write pieces like that without acknowledging exactly what that officer told you, I just didn't do it nearly as well. So many people in the service put themselves at risk no matter what their job is, all of you are always at risk of the deepest, most ultimate kind; and you keep the other soldiers alive. That was a great story you told, and I'm grateful you told it. It bears as much attention as mine. Thanks for your constant thoughtfulness, and your service.)
