The perspective on the sign on the fence is messed up. ugh!

There are two fences…

One is at an angle BEHIND the fence that is straight parallel to the viewer. The sign is on the front fence, so the perspective is fine.

So glad to have Chechetto back, but is issues 7 an inventory issue? I mean they’re still having a stand-off 2 months after they walk in on each other?

Go back and read issue 6 again. Rucka left a plot thread hanging (the face-off) for an issue while he deal with the police side of the story (6), and now we’re picking that thread up again and probably intercutting it with the consequences of the shoot-out.

It’s a non-conventional story form, but it’s working really, really well.
