Some readers called Kaycee out for giving away her element of surprise at the end of last page, fair enough too, but keep in mind this page follows on less than a second after that previous panel – not quite enough time for Orange Team to react properly. In fact, all the action on this page probably transpires in less time than it takes to read it – very quickly. It was a challenge to get so many different elements into one page and make it coherent but not overcrowded – I’ve learned from errors I made in the last chapter where the fight sequences often dragged on over several pages.

Also, a big hint here into the actual nature of Chiq’s power – more about how it works exctly over the next few pages.
