KENT- Yeeeah gurl, work that world building! I love that you just went ahead with Jane Blondes tale and are making her Mayor. Not to mention explaining that curious demonic presence she has turning out to be Dipucs soul. Your inks and pages are always a treat to pore over in your battles, but I gotta agree with RoflQu that it ends before the best part. But considering its a tournament I'm guessing its incentive for people to vote your way so we can find out what happens. I for one totally wanna know!

NAKIA- After peeping through a couple battles, I gotta doff my hat to you and the fact you don't fear inks. I LOVE your heavy use of black and shadows in your pages. You definitely werent afraid to make it your own and enhance your scenes. I especially like page 7 with the butcher looming over poor Dipuc before he strikes.  I'm sure I wouldn't of noticed otherwise if it hadn't been for Nachtes passionate thread regarding word bubbles, but eesh mang. them word bubbles. They all seem so poorly suited to your dialogue. Definitely give that thread a looksee so your word bubbles feel more natural as they seem really crammed and with little room to breathe.

Mister Kent: Dipuc is probably my favorite character of yours by a big margin. That's why it's too bad you couldn't perform more here and actually pull the trigger! The art you're playing with here actually looks pretty good, but the shame of it is that you're just unfinished with it. At the same time, if you thought this was all your story you needed to display, I really think you should have showcased far more, such as why The Butcher would agree to work with a "superhuman" or what Dipuc is actually existing as right now if a shard of him is in Jane. I guess if you move on it'd be neat to see where this goes and I hope you can afford to spend more time on this story.

Nakia: You surprised me here, the work you put in this was really strong and your story was great I felt. The Butcher never got much play in life, so it's really cool to see you perform like you did here and kind of fill out his story more. I think I was a little confused as to the purpose of The Butcher being 'Earthside' since I understood it as him being stuck in Hell still, but maybe that's a later development in this story if you were to win.

Your people feel pretty good to me, except the hands. They're a little chunky with not enough joints on the fingers in some panels (specifically the thumb-breaking escape part). You hid your usage of the fill-tool alright, but next time make sure to be a little more thorough, it's still visible on a few places.

Your speech bubbles and text boxes are really poor though. Same with the way you set up your font. You should have utilized center spacing to make your text look like it wasn't pasted from Microsoft Word (if you get what I mean). Overall, this comic did a lot to improve The Butcher to me and I think it'd be cool if you moved on, too.

Kent: this is a good setup for a cool story but it feels so short, its kinda ALL setup and then cuts off before anything exciting happens. Also the blankness of the middle panel on page 3 is kinda distracting... there should be confetti on the streets or something to break up all that white space. Good use of the characters though and I like Dipuc's face on the last page.
Nakia: theres some cool drawings here and some really nice angles. I like the shot of Butcher's skeleton face though his torn mask on 5, and you have nice linework. the text bubbles are a bit cringey, the text is all out of alignment in them and it looks a bit bad.
good comics, you guys!

Kent: consistent quality, and interesting where you were going, but with how quick it stopped with the 'to be continued' it really didn't feel like it had substance

Nakia: decent quality throughout. I wasn't too interested in the story being told, but it wasn't bad. I will say, though, that the bold lines of your word bubbles completely drown out your art. They distract from it heavily
