Really really like the FX in the last panels. :D Very coo. :D
Bracey100's avatar
Thanks! Doing fx is fun.

It is, but, it doesn't always come out looking that cool! :D (and welcome)

Truly unreal.  I mean, I always have fun reading and gazing at DU strips by the many talented members, but this just engrossed me completely.
Bracey100's avatar
Wow, thank you so much. Hopefully I can get back to this soon, but Ive still got a few commissions to finish up.

Great page - fantastic (and useful!) recap of the defining moments that reset the DU - and thanks for including Vigil even if it's not showing her at her best it's great to see your take on the character. :)
Bracey100's avatar
Thanks and youre welcome. When I decided to put my story after the Omega Wave I felt a recap was the best way to go for new readers. I do want to use Vigil in the future, she's a very interesting character. Heck I want to use pretty much everyone in the DU at least once lol. I love this group.
Kostmeyer's avatar
Vigil's technically dead (at the moment, anyway) in her DU reality incarnation at least - although she's available for flashback appearances! And agreed that it's a fun group :)
Bracey100's avatar
Aw thats to bad (for now anyways).

I was struggling a bit with Vigil's role in the DU. She's a character who has stories outside the DU, and it was getting difficult to match her 'in canon' appearances with the DU stuff - especially when challenges would match her up with anthro characters and weird stuff. The easiest solution was to make sure that the DU version was a different 'alternate reality' character, so that I wouldn't have to worry about continuity - so when and if she returns, it will be in a slightly different form to differentiate her from the 'official' version! In the mean time, I have Centauri to focus on - but if you have an idea for a 'past tense' Vigil story, I'd be happy to work on something with you - your art is great :)

Nah dont have anything past tense for her unfortunately since Mr Happy doesnt appear until after the Omega Wave has wiped out all the heroes in my DU storyline.  My approach with my characters is similar. This is why my comic hints at Mr Happy existing in a multiverse, and the DU is just one more version of him as I have my own stories to tell. Sometime before the year is over I plan on releasing an official Mr Happy comic and Ive been world building towards that goal and previewing characters with my Handbook pages. I knew going in there would be no way to fully integrate my own ideas into a world I hadnt created so I did some research and fit Mr Happy into the DU. The nice thing about doing stuff in the DU is we can kill off our main characters for the sake of story. 

I'll have to think up something with Centauri, she's a great character and your art is fantastic as well.

Thanks a lot! I have no idea where I'm going with Centauri - as she's totally new I'm kind of working out who she is as I go along!

With a blank slate like her you can do anything. Id voted for her making it to Thunder Force. Cracks me up how everything is so fragile to her, lol.

that first panel is amazing...and love the sort of narrating flash back .....and I see you use cameo's like I said great page
Bracey100's avatar
Im big on a narrative style of writing. Its comes pretty easy to me to write in the first person. Plus Ive always like knowing what was going on in someone's head. And I definitely want to feature as many DU members as I can when I do my comics. Thanks for the comments!

This should be interesting. Lotsa crazy stuff going down here!
Bug-Off's avatar
Haha, man it's always a pleasant surprise to see one of my characters make a cameo appearance.

A small detail, unfortunately, is that Mr. Veillance isn't really a meta. He just has a prosthetic head and was never taken by the extinction event.
Bracey100's avatar
Aw, dammit! Ive tried to read everything but there are so many comics scattered about I knew I was gonna make a mistake.
Bug-Off's avatar
Yeah, it's not really your fault. It can be so difficult to keep up with all the different story arcs.
But if you'll read the comic where Diago comes back, you'll see that Mr. Veillance was already in the BioPets lab keeping an eye on the scientist's work.
Bracey100's avatar
I definitely missed that one. Im still trying to read all the comics and sort out the continuity but Ive still got a lot to go through. But Im still glad I choose Mr Veillance, he's very interesting to draw. Im looking forward to incorporating him into more stories in the future actually. He's one of the most interesting characters in the DU.
Bug-Off's avatar
Well I've been considering having the Diago Chasers team (my collection of villainous monsters) branching out to kidnap other metahumans for experimentation. Might be a plot element that could be used in a story.
