Alternate page from ORIGINS 3
Here's a little behind the scenes info for you hard core fans.
There is a page in ORIGINS #3 where Chimera (the really, really bad guy) is explaining how he killed his families (yeah, plural). I don't like to pretty up violence (since it's never really pretty, especially if it involves women) so I tried to tell a story with the blood trail, show a bit of the struggle and just how ugly a thing it was to do.
Hasbro asked (very nicely I might add) if I could tone it down, which I did for the final comic. They let me keep the puddle under the poor woman, but everything else went. The page still packs a punch, maybe a tad more of one since it's so focused on the person and not the blood.
There you go.
