Alright! Some intense fighting action here with four characters. Leo and Cap are just about to put Basilisk down for the count when Igneous shows up to put Cap right back in the tough spot she was in before.
This page reminds me of a design decision I made a while back with the Zodiac characters. You might notice that Iggy and Basilisk have no pupils. While this makes them look more edgy, it also severely limits their expression. Half the time, you can't really tell where they are looking. Originally, I had a lot of the zodiac members who wore masks drawn with no pupils including Gemini, Aries, Virgo, Aquarius and Pisces at least. I changed this when I saw just how much I lost without being able to know where they are looking. Just thought I would share.

I recommend the artist/writer do a text wrap-up of the rest of the story, and let is go at that.
ADVENTURE INTERNATIONAL promised a multi-part adventure SAVAGE ISLAND . Two parts came out, and then there was a card which could be de-coded by the data found in pt.2. Apparently Scott Adams didn't have the oomph to do many parts, so he wrote the solution in code and had the 2nd episode give the solution to the code. ON MY PART,I could not get through part 1,and even had to cheat.
The Zodiac story should be, I repeat, wrapped up in a text summary.
It's time for Libra to end this all-destroying war, which he foolishly started, by taking on ALL the super-villains all at once !
It looks like Libra is going to have to take ALL the villains on at the same time, to end this all-destroying war and to BEGIN to atone for his foolish stunt which started it !
The Omni-blast !
Doesn't seem to be light at the end of the tunnel !
This is one thunder of a first fight ! They probably wish they started small -like tackling bank robbers or a gang of smugglers ! DareDevil started with the murderer of his father.
Basilisk makes me think of the tune "Don't tread on Me" by Metallica. "Quick is the blue tongue... forked as the lightning strike. Shining with brightness always on surveillance. The eyes they never close. Ever the vigilant."
By the way, this is Libra's fault and so are the deaths, the destruction.... that so far took place, all because he didn't bridle his mouth !
They should have started light, but that was a fight that sought them out. They'll be on the ropes for a while but they'll pull out. Or they might lose and learn some valuable lessons.
I'm dealing with a severe cold and unable to focus, but many a super-villain team was torn by internal conflict & haggling, which led to their never winning.
Sephira was vanquished by Casper causing her persona to fight each other !
Poor Cap, she's in big trouble now!
I'm surprised the bar is still standing with all this fighting going on.
Interesting to know that you drew the Zodiac group without pupils once. I don't believe I have seen any of those pictures yet myself. As for Iggy (nice nickname!) and Basilisk for having no pupils, that is no issue for me, because, if I'm right, those two had no pupils to begin with since their debut. I mean, Iggy doesn't have them once he transforms into his dried lava golem form, and Basilisk's eyes happen to be natural due to her powers she's gained. In fact, them having no pupils makes them more menacing, meaning that while their expressions are limited, it all depends on how you draw those expressions first. I think they look great and fit the page. I can easily tell where they're looking at too and what they're doing at the same time.
So good page!
Now Leo's going against Iggy, and round 2 between Basilisk and Capricorn commences. This will be interesting.
It is now 3-15-2015 and it seems to be abandoned...
