Love page 6!
This city looks amazing, no wonder May and Bern look like that :D

Can't help not too laugh at the smiley at the bottom panel girl's wing (is it real body modification or just some flashy attachment?) and other girl 'No man' shirt, lol Bern should buy one too, these two girls look so cute maybe Bern will find some comrades ;)

Love the color front page. And yes, "real" Eschelon city is sooo Los Angeles.

Looking at page 6 panel 5 makes me think "What if Masamune Shirow" did fantasy?" I like. :)

Wow, aesthetically speaking, this whole current story arc is like one big 80's revival fashion party.

I love it!
2 kids = no more comics, but you can still find me doing BG portraits now and then

Floating platforms! You gotta love floating platforms, unless they're part of a jumping puzzle.

So Maytag has already been to Eschelon. Maybe she also has some old friends ther which she likes to visit. Maybe someone who could help her out, now that she has lost everything.
Just a small crdit to start a poker game could help.

I like that there are so many things in the last panel of page 7 that seem to say "up." The stone pillars on the platform point skyward, as do the buildings, two of which are literally arrows pointing up.

Clouds shaped to look like rocks? Ok. I can live with that, but GREEN clouds shaped to look like rocks? That can't possibly be healthy.

After seeing that giant, floating, semi-cylindrical block on page 10, is anyone else reminded of those blue rectangular blocks from the old Mario games? I have this feeling that as soon as our heroes walk under it, it's going to come crashing down in an attempt to skoosh them!

You needn't worry Ronin, after all that was the jester outfit's 2nd incarnation.  Remember the 1st got ripped to shreds.  (Also there was a 3rd one in the side story if you count that.)  Naturally, more jester outfits can always be made!

Yeah, I don't like narration either.  I prefer to tell the story through dialog.  But I am toying around with it because it allows exposition to be tossed out extremely fast in a somewhat natural way.  If I have to use narration, I personally prefer to keep it as impersonal as possible; I absolutely can't stand character narration, especially in comics, because it just seems like the cheesiest thing in the world.

Take note that the next few pages will be the polar opposite, with the story being mostly told visually.

If I'm correct, then we're onto a new book with this chapter, so I think these are probably the few times when it does work out.  This way you have an introduction into the new book for those who might have missed the last... But yeah... Latest page art is AMAZING!  Looking forward to all the other amazing things that magick can do when implemented on a city scale.

"after a while it feels small" isn't exactly the best way to sell yourself to the ladies, Glyph ;P

Bern isn't into such things, if any big or small she would cut it off if Glyph would try something again.

May wouldn't mind if it's big or small, the technique is most important, beside she promised Bern, another to go from the list.

So the only one left who Glyph could impress is Crest?

Oh boy ;D

I hope they won't go for sandwich for lunch ;)

I wonder why Bern is depressed now...

Hey! I have only one friend who "likes" the Flipside Facebook Page. I could have sworn I'd friended more people from here.

I have two friends that like it! :P But I thought I had friended you, Charles?

...

Maybe Bern is going through a random sexual identity crisis? Or wants to make May happy so they'll have hot orgies with cute university girls?

Also... who would be the top, Glyph or Crest? o.O;
