Nachte:
I think opaque word bubbles would have looked nicer here, maybe try to sketch them into your thumbnails/pencils so you can execute the placement of them without having to worry so much about art. Good lead in and the art was consistent, I liked your page layouts.

Actually, if you notice the bubbles don't actually cover anything important, or anything that would take away if they were covered with a solid speech bubble, because they were sketched and planned into the initial drawings. It was just a stylistic choice I myself liked better because I enjoy seeing that I took the time to draw the whole image. It was just a personal choice to make then transparent, not that I was worried about covering art. <:)

even though you guys didn't quite fit everything in, I appreciate the depth to the stories, and I think they both ended in good places that make me want to read what's next.

The ending was badass and i'm excited for the next chapter. Also makes me want to go back and read more of Black's story. I agree your face variation is getting better and your female heads are looking more feminine. Visual clarity was good here except on page 6, 2nd panel, I got it eventually, but a clearer sillo of the char. would have helped alot, cuz it was hard to make out behind the firing gun shape. Overall I really enjoyed the environments you created with your BGs.

Nachte-I like the style you went with for this even though I still think your work on McKenzie is your strongest, I really miss all your wonderful detail and I think you really lose it when you work digitally. I thought it was fine that Black didn't talk, I always saw him as a mostly silent character since most of his "talking" is always in his head. It sucks that you weren't able to finish, I want to see what happens next.

Monday-You're getting a lot better with having variation in your face and the first few pages were looking very nice. But as you started to run out of time your art and clarity suffered for it. But fortunately I was able to understand this battle fine, you're getting better with making your battles easier to understand.

for the passed few battles now, Black's current storyline is gonna have to rely on reading previous entries to get the whole picture. Unfortunately, I couldn't get it to a level of self containment like my previous battles.  It would help if you read back all the way to the James battle.

If not, just read the ben battle

Ah that's quite true but since the monologue was always there I didn't think about it as being silent...Sorry about that.  You're right though and your depiction is accurate.

William_Duel: These are both great and I feel like both of your styles almost complement each other.  I was a little concerned at first in Sangre Gris' story though because Agent Black did not seem to speak for the longest time and I began to wonder whether he'd have a speaking role at all.  O.o

I'm kind of surprised someone brought this up, but the reason I chose to make Black mainly silent is because through out a lot of Monday's own comics, Agent Black is largely silent as most of his dialogue is internal monologue to the readers. And as such, since the reader is supposed to be unsure of if black remembers who he is or not and this is told from Gris's POV, I choose to portray as he would be seen in his own comic, without monologue. Which is largely silent.

But I almost feel that if you cut both of them in half it would be nearly impossible to tell who wrote which one (storywise, not thinking about style here) because they both share a sort of quaint beginning (except for the whole bleeding all over the place sort of deal...) and each one begins to elucidate on the characters' respective pasts.  I have to admit I was surprised by Monday's entry because upon looking at his last few entries I did not know you could draw this way (a silly thought huh?).

Uploaded,

I sure learned a lot with this battle, especially since I literally took inking to the extent of my limitation, especially with schoolwork constantly around the corner. The result was a lackluster story that only executed a 3rd of what I intended. Thanks for reading guys, I'll do more to balance out my efforts with story and possibly a simpler style.

And finally Nachte, I dont know whether I should apologize or thank you, I know you to be one of the few people to put up great fights around here and I'm sorry I didn't get to return the favor with the time I gave myself. If only I could go back to doing 30 page speed inks right ?
