You better believe she would have stabbed Sunny if this didn't go well.

God, this is a good page. Love the focus on her hand and what she’s doing with them. You can guess her facial expressions without even needing to see her face. Speaking of faces, that first panel is also really good. Love that cocky smile she’s got going on.

I had so much fun doing this page. This chapter was the first one I used a storyboarding method for pacing and it made for pages like this to jive well.

Aisel is a fun fun character to write for things like this alone!

Thank you!

"Do, or do not. There is no try"

Would she have stabbed him, or "simply" cut him up a bit/lot as a final warning?

Stabbing can be rather...permanent...if not skillfully done (organs, arteries, nerves, etc) and could cause a "fatal" lack of "resources".
Cutting him up would be a good incentive to obey - as long as Aisel believes he is salvageable...

Probably just cut him up, because yeah stabbing is unfortunately pretty permanent, but she's got a pretty short knife there-- at least.

:) we still have more to see of this purple man...probably.

C'mon Spell, you and I both know that's not the ONLY blade/weapon Aisel has on her body. She probably has a set of brass knuckles, a garrote, a straight-razor, a FULL brace of throwing knives (ranged attacks FTW), at leasst two other knives of different type, dimensions, and use, as well as an emergency backup strapped to her calf. Never mind the (probably) dual shoulder holsters, the "pancake" holster at the small of her back, and the (probable) backup piece strapped to her OTHER calf. This doesn't even take into consideration the armoury inside her car.
And THIS walking arsenal didn't even "gerar up" - this is her normal, every-day "clothing", like her scarlet, double-breasted suit.

IMHO, the ONLY reason you flip out a throwing knife from a concealed sheath is to prove that you can intimidate a flunky at twenty paces. It makes him think of everything else that can be concealed...

Oh, Aisel, what do you have up your sleeve... figuratively of course. It's clear what she has up her literal sleeve

Misery and suffering! probably

There's at least 5 other knives on her.

She carries around small blades for the express purpose of threat displays like this.
