This part had a few rewrites. I finally got it to where the mood was right and it accomplished what I wanted it to. Then I had a helpful conversation with Tantz Aerine about the pacing and presentation on the next couple pages. Reshuffling of lines meant I had to make another new draft of this page, and I had room to expand the dialogue and fit in more panels. (Actually, I might have gotten carried away. It turned out rather wordy.) One of my favorite additions is Fudo’s angry reaction and Kaida calling him stupid. ;)

For those who need a refresher, Jerry was introduced on page 9 and met his end on page 279. He was UB’s first villain.
