    Great work! I understand the kiss between Jean and LJ. She's making her claim now that Lady Fortune has arrived. But the kiss reveals LJ's secret identity, at least to anyone who has lived with them in the Hooverville for the last few months. "Hey, Lone Justice must be John Locke!" It also puts Jean's life in danger from LJ's enemies that might observe the kiss.It does make for a dramatic, personal moment tucked inside of all this action and ensuing chaos. It gives LJ depth and reminds us that he has more at stake here than just being a hero to the masses.I'm enjoying how this is developing, especially the arrival of Gottmögen and Lady Fortune. Will the former Super Team work together like the great fighting unit they once were? Or will whatever drove them their separate ways get in the way of them saving the lives of the people in Lower Town?I'm really glad to see variety return to ComicMix with the return of "The Original Johnson" and the debut of "G.I. Joe." I hope this leads to new fans finding and loving "Lone Justice." Rock on!

      Russ, you have an uncanny ability to nail the moments that cause me to sit and ponder my next move while drawing this story. And I did sit and ponder the kissing scene – for several reasons, including the one you mention. My final take on it – and the reason the kiss is included is – I can't see that these people, at this moment, are going to be concerned much with worries about secret identities. At least not to the extent that they would have avoided a kiss. Also – most people are worried about saving their own skins at this point. I don't know that there are many who would even notice the kiss going on – much less give it the thought needed to figure out the implications.Anyway – I'm glad you enjoyed it. I know I always enjoy your comments.

        I agree with your reasoning on the kiss. Besides, this also takes place in the late '20s, early '30s, before the "rules" and traditions of Masked Vigilante Heroes were more strictly codified. Before the days when Super Villains (like Syndrome from The Incredibles) might hunt down Masks for trophies or take the scalps (and other body parts) of their associates and loved ones just for fun.
