Panel 1: Turns out that drawing one of those g-d body wash squeegees is much more difficult than one might think. Hey, you try drawing one sometime! (In fact, I do recommend trying to draw such a squeegee yourself, purely as an exercise for the artist.)
Panel 3: Overdialoguing Alert on Emp’s word balloon, here. Should’ve tried for a much briefer, punchier line from Emp about her blackout, rather than cramming in a lengthy thought using such a wee text size. Bad call on Past Me’s part, gotta say.
Panel 4: This, of course, is a reference to the climactic scene from Empowered vol.3.
