I was wondering, Do you also story board each page as well? Because this one is really impressive.

And now back to the comic that's actually progressing a bit now. The new PPGD pages are slowly catching my interest again, and if it keeps up, it'll be all the more better. Let's see where this leads.

Bleedman prepares storyboards based on a description of the events and I will amend those initial sketches with changes of focus. So. Sorta?

Storyboards? I thought they were thumbnails lol Like you sketch out quite a few, then choose the ones you like then have the final look like using 11 x 17 Comic Book Art Boards.

Story boards. Or if you prefer draft pages. Thumbnails are tiny drawings to decide what something will look like. Storyboards are for working out page arrangement and panel layout.
Also, Bleed does everything digitally so he doesn't use 11 x 17 Bristol board.
Hope that cleared things up.

I just looked at Vexus again, and it's not just her abdomen, it's her neck as well that's also twiggy! And it looks like her eyebrows are floating with a yellow ball. If you want to go further, her arms and hands are also thin, but you'd expect those to be thin though, but not the abdomen and neck. I'm sorry I'm nitpicking at Vexus's design, but to me, she looks more silly than frighting. lol

But getting back to the actual plot now, it's good that we see Protoboy, it seems like a small plus for some, and, well, it will be interesting to see what Mr. Red Tall has up his three-fingered sleeve and to see what Vexus really wants in the end.

In Ultra's defence, Vexus's emaciation is a lot more extreme here than it was in the actual cartoon. But in general I agree. If the ancient Egyptian ruler was King Scorpion, Vexus is Queen Mantis (right down to the nemes and solar disc uraeus)
Speaking of the pysical bodies of the characters I have a question from the actual series. Does anyone know if Irken bodies are partially prosthetic? I'm thinking particulary of thier hands. There seem to be two completely different sorts, vaguely humaniod ones covered by gloves (like Zim has) and those spider like ones (like the tallest do) For a while I simply assumed this was a result of clothing (i.e. that the Tallest and those with hands like them are simply wearing some sort of gautlets with thier actual fingers poking out. But they actually seem to have different numbers of fingers (the "gloves" seem to have four, the "sticks" only three.) And I know that Irken's do have a mechaical part on thier back (I seem to recall some episode that showed that the port where the pack attaches to thier back is inserted surgically) So do rank and file have thier hands replaced with artificial ones with better "grip"? I have to assume that the Tallest's hands are the natural form as they are presumably considered the pinnacle of Irken physical perfection.

maybe the Tallest's gloves/gauntlets are simply a type of armor system with their real hands concealed inside controlling the fake cybernetic ones using some type of pulley control system

The Tallest are actually being impressive and yet not too out of character.

What's up with Vexus' text changing colors?

Actually, I looked at the design for Vexas in the cartoon, and this is almost an accurate depiction of her Bleed style. The only problem being, of course, her abdomen and neck, looks to twiggy and breakable.

That was a better design for her. Maybe it's like Ari said, she went on a diet. :p

Vexus looks taller now. My money is on her deciding that the increased ganglyness was worth it if it made her height look greater. Given she knew she would be going up against the Irkens who put such value on height; looking as tall as possible would probably be considered to possibly be psychologically intimidating, as well as advantageous should she wish to enslave the under-irkens as opposed to destroying them.

Just a couple of thoughts:
After comparing Vexas's new model to the old and comtemplating any possible benefits, it occured to me that her new form looks much more like an Irken Tallest than it did previously. (I think someone else commented on this.) You might notice that her hands are also in the Irken 3 finger form rather than the claws she used to have. With these changes in mind, I think it would not be unreasonable to predict her trying to depose the Tallest and disguise herself as one of them, thus taking over the Irken Empire.

Also, I'm going to laugh my ass off if the 'secret' weapon is a Gir clone. (No, not another SIR robot, but a copy/similar version of Gir himself.)

I don't know about the "Vexus wanting to look like the Tall Ones" thing. It doesn't make much since to me. A thought that I had was that maybe Vexus is in disrepair. But she doesn't look too rough, like she's taken a lot of damage or anything.

The idea goes sort of like this; It is canon to the show that, in Irken society, the taller you are, the higher your social status. Those in command do not just happen to be the tallest Irkens, that is actually a prerequisite for the job, in fact, the ONLY one. The only reason there are two of them is that they both happen to be EXACTLY the same height (again, show canon). That's why I implied the Tallest presumably do NOT have any body modifications. If they were allowed to have such modifications one would expect them to be in a perpetual cybernetic arms race to each become taller than the other, since they could then rule alone.
So the idea is that, if Vexus want's the Irkens to serve her, she may have modified her body to play into their culture and exploit it. Her forces are probably to limited to maintain such control over the Irken's long term by force, and she is presumably WELL versed in alternate ways of keeping power (you don't get to rule as queen for almost 2000 years if you aren't). Because of the way the Irken's think, if she looked a bit like the Tallest, but even TALLER than them, then, when she claims the throne, it might actually legitimize her reign in their eyes. Or it could be as Higurashi suggested, she could be going for strict disguise. We KNOW she can body morph, but that her morphing ability has limits.

I think the fact that she is not Irken disqualifies her. As proven, the Tallest are not the tallest creatures in the universe, Just among their species. If any species could take over just by being tall then this would have caused their hierarchy to crumble long ago. Zim even tells them that there are humans taller than them. They do not show any sign of respect upon hearing this so my guess is a no Irken leader isn't happening any time soon.

If She were to try and disguise her self as an Irken, she would not have the necessary serial number or even a PAK. Essentially the same as having no history among a race that keeps track of every one of it's kind through cybernetic implants. Plus the fact that she is attacking their ship right now. They would not be stupid enough to fall for that.

If she was going to take over then she wold just force their servitude. The tallest are narcissistic enough to surrender to save their own lives.
