Despite the art quality (which I may be running into the ground about its substandardness), I do like the idea presented for these pages. Julie's power shows a bit more versatility, and this aspect of her is something I do want to return to for further evolution of her powers. Here is what I originally wrote:

The second (and hopefully last) mega update. I don't like doing them, because the pages were designed to be each on their own update. Sure, I realize you can get through the story faster this way, but it's not how I initially intended it. Still, I wanted to get the issue done at a certain time.

Here's my commentary for each indivisual page:
Page 11 - So the action begins. I don't like the way I did the walkway coloring, so it's back to a simple solid color for the next page. It kind of looks like tiles here. But I do like this page for the fact that you see Julie do something useful with a seemingly useless power: shoot feathers up a guy's nose. Hey, it worked, seeing as he dropped the knife and backed away from her. Too bad the other guy was right there to pick it up.

Page 12 - Feather blood. That really can't be good. Neither can blowing away in the wind. Of course, that bit is why I had the feathers blowing behind her in the wind before, and why I had it windy for the issue. Also: the third guy was kind of thrown in. I drew the pages (and that includes page 10) while I couldn't get on my computer and double-check the amount of guys I had there (only two). So the third guy's line on this page was supposed to be by the bald guy, but it works better this way, because the bald guy is currently sneezing feathers. Of course, you can see from this page that my cars look terrible. And if they didn't have the lights on top, nobody would be able to tell they're supposed to be cop cars.

Page 13 - No points to people who can figure out what inspired this page. In a poor superhero movie, it was one of the truly great parts. Of course, the way I have Eiderdown putting herself back together does make her look a bit like a scarecrow in the big panel. But I don't dwell on it too much: it is difficult to convey in one panel, and I'm still learning as an artist.

Tomorrow: The issue wraps up (except for the usual audience address, of course).
