War really wants to be a master of an Asian fighting technique–any one, really–but his heavy-handed approach to combat has never served him well. It’s not that he’s incapable of balletic grace and lightness of form when he’s engaged in combat, it’s just that he doesn’t see why you have to sacrifice cleaving multiple enemies in half with a sword the size of two men to do it.

I also think the entire “self defense” aspect of most martial arts training escapes him. War doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who ever gets attacked in the first place.

In other news, I’d call our dialogue-light week a success, on the whole! I think the comics turned out smashing. We’ll definitely be experimenting in this vein in the future–it’s a different sort of process than I’m used to, as far as imagining and scripting the comics, but heck, anything for “the lulz.” See you Monday.

…that is all.
