great layout in panel 3 with the perspective and curving beams.

but the choice of colors makes it seem too cheerful considering what's going on.

Thanks for your reply, i like the colors in that way, but you are right about it broke the " rules " of schematics minds, and it is contradictory if my goal were the win, but i cannot go against what i feel.

Thank you, i made it heavier than normal, trying to made it looks different, i don't like the original design with a lot of big and sharp teeth, i think the darkness will win in a contest where winner have to be the more generic dark super hero; but i enjoy making the metro station and making that stupid situation more stupid than originally was, so... looking my work from that point; do you like it?

Yes, I like it. Your style suits comedic comic more than dramatic or horror.

Thank you for your reply, some times the opinion of other is useful to learn about our own work. I like dramatic or horror things, but the real ones, those that can make me feel some thing, in the case of commercial art like this, i just feel i am testing a dark candy. Thanks again
