*holds a pizza box and lights a cigarette* Me: Maxwell you know you can't win... you're too slow Maxwell: Blast that damn thing! Me: *Just walks across easily dodging bullets without trying* Told you! *One bullet knocks the pizza box out of my hand and the blood covered pizza is on the floor* Me:........ Maxwell:......Oh shit Me:YOU'RE FUCKING DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One hellish end to a chapter, but wonderfully well told and presented! You really show Maxwell warping more and more due to his hunger for power. Just like he did canonically. And again, the last panels you've been doing lately have been great at building tension, and showing your growing skills as an artist. ^^
*Anderson appears in the pope mobile* Maxwell: Anderson what are you doing here?! Anderson...why are you unsheathing your bayonets? Anderson why are you covering the gla- oh I get it now... *Well you can picture what Anderson is doing now* Anderson: I needed that...
Okay, fair enough about the "rooting for the Empire" argument, but you said at one point you hated Maxwell. All I had to do was have him attack the protagonists and boom, you're rooting for him instantly?
Well of course, the Major is a certified Baby Eater, he is in every way of the word a monster, even if he denies it. Maxwell is doing it while claiming it to be the wish of God, meaning he is supposed to be a protector, not a villain himself. So, different reasons in character.
