Behold, folks, we’ve returned to the Chinese restaurant setting previously seen in Empowered vol.1’s story “My Dinner with Frank.” 

Panel 1: Not fond of those 45-degree-angle “reflection lines”—or whatever the hell you wanna call them—in the background windows. Those are an old-school, blatantly stylized and quite frankly hacky way of indicating window glass, one I long ago picked up from other artists when I was a yute. Lazy! Then again, I can assure you that I didn’t feel like taking a more rigorous approach, which might’ve meant drawing the reflections of Thugboy and Frank—and, even worse, possibly the reflection of the restaurant interior beyond them, which I deliberately chose this camera angle—and tight framing—to avoid having to show in the first place.

Panel 4: Note that Thugboy is referring to Emp's speculations about her supersuit affecting her libido, in a scene from the end of an Empowered vol.1 story, "Love Changes Everything."
