  1. Is it me or does those variants feel a bit…..rushed?

    Oh well, at least it’s cool that Vincent gets to do a cover. I like seeing his drawings on Twitter.

  2. Can’t wait to be told how Sally saved the day by magically doing nothing as usual as par the usual whenever she’s under Flynn’s pen.

    And for the love of god, stop spamming Shadow already Flynn. I know you miss your little Gary Stu Scourge, but that doesn’t give you the right to use Shadow as a cheap replacement whenever you need an one note asshole in your scripts.
