I see Brave's blue-flamed Brave Fire is back, which means that the only effect Big Bad had on him was to make him look more bada$$ than he already did. But it's Brave, so I'll not complain.
This page came out pretty quickly after the previous one, but since the pages have only been advancing the plot by under a minute very recently, I'll not complain about that either.
Also, I notice a lack of spambots on the boards recently. Excellent job, Mods.
