    Really looking forward to the Runaway issue, finally getting some interaction between them and the AA kids.
    Still no colored preview for it? The inks are . . . okay, but it could easily be made or broken by the coloring. They look like they'd be better served by a brighter pallet, but the overall dark and muted pallet of Arena serves the themes well and may not jive with the pencil style.

    This one will be tricky, art wise.

    Reviewing is a lot like paleontology: the evidence is there, but no one seems to agree on it.

    Okay guys, enough with the derailing and discussing each other.

    Majin Gojira, I get your grievances and difference of opinion about the title but there's no need to keep repeating the same arguments so please move on.

    so what have been revealed so far as the mechanisms preventing people from tunneling, swimming or flying their way out? I assume nobody has teleportation powers.

    How is it derailing when it's within topic?

    No, the stuff I've had to remove really wasn't nor was it conducive towards moving the thread along in a less negative manner but that's the last I'm going to discuss of this.

    I'll be curious to see how this looks colored, I like Vitti's stuff but I don't know if he's the best choice to keep consistency with Kev's art. I think they should have gone back to Declan Shalvey who partnered with Kev in T-Bolts but that's just me playing armchair editor.

    Yep, agreed.

    I'm also glad Cammi's backstory to how she got to earth was explained and through the use of S.W.O.R.D., I'm still not a fan of the concept of the book but admittedly it has it's strengths in other areas. Hope she survives to see Drax again at some point and I'd like to see Darkhawk/Juston & his Sentinel get out of it alive as well cuz Sentinel is too cool for this school.

    Juston and Sentinel and Darkhawk will not escape. At best, Sentinel and Juston will fuse. Darkhawk will join with Cammi or Chase or possibly Ryker or a Hogwarts kid. It is known.

    I have no familiarity with Vitti's work. Google suggests that once inked and coloured it will be more than adequate.

    Majin, I like you did a lengthy reply but it was really rather lengthy, so all I can say in reply without getting a tl;dr going is that I live Southern Hemisphere side rather than Stateside so procuring Battle Royale is still an issue.
    I would like to say for the record that this is the FIRST TIME I've withheld dong when someone was so desperately asking for some.

    I rather agree. If the series is "legitimate" with the deaths (IE: It's not VR, but that does not negate resurrections later down the road one way or the other), Juston fusing with his buddy to become an Omega Sentinel and Dark Hawk legacy-ing his armor to Cammi or Chase are very distinct possibilities.

    Yeah, it was a lengthy response, but what's sick is that the article I'm finishing up on it and the genre as a whole has exceeded 15K words. Pehraps I'm a little obsessed.

    Sorry about the Battle Royale unavailability for you. It's a shame, as it really is a good movie. Not sure what the convention scene is like where you are, but that may be your only option as a way of catching it legitimately.

    You don't see how they can be favourites, but the Braddock Academy kids have been the focus of much of the positive and excited discussion about the book along with Ryker.
    Plus Bloodstone's "snarky comment" was him calling out Kid B and Nara for picking on Ryker.

    Juston, Sentinel, and Darkhawk are going to be free and you're going to LIKE IT.

    One pretty low key convention a year where I am. Still, I got to speak to Ron Marz briefly last year at it. Lovely fellow. Might be able to find it, there are a few DVD stalls.
    I'll be interested to read your article.
    The fusings can be a way for 'at least 10 to die' while developing rather than burning properties. Its a cop out but one I have no issue with. A couple of resurrections wouldn't bug me. Unless it is superbly well done as a twist, VR would suck.

    Hopeless could write Babsgirl, Marrow and Santa Claus and I would like it. Though maybe you're being optimistic. Maybe I'm being pessimistic. Sentinel has already exploded, the Darkhawk armour has been torn from its host and Juston is particularly weak without his mecha.

    I love Bloodstone already. A reserved guy who might be the most 'good' Hogwarts kid. Or maybe the most massive and apathetic dick. I do not support RykerxCullen but I acknowledge the allure.

    He has a force field up. Although this does not explain why Nico cannot teleport herself out or why Darkhawk could not try blasting his way through.

    Since the comics industry monolith still works on the archaic pre-order system for sales projections, you can get your digital pre-order in at comiXology for Arena #4 if you're a digital comics reader and you'd like to support the books you love.
