Panel 2 may be a bit more slapstick than I intended. Fault in my storytelling ability there.

But one thing I liked about doing this page was to show one previously-unexplored aspect of Mineral's power: his covering does have a degree of color changing to it (I mean, maybe that's obvious as while I tend to show it as a grey to slightly brownish grey, it's also been portrayed as greenish), and as such he can blend in a little more with rocks. So, in a way, he's the most potentially stealthy of my characters (when he's not spouting horrible puns).

A late addition to this is the second two word balloons in panel 1. After all, this is the second time that one of the twins insinuated that Flame Thrower and Rearranger might know German. The fact is that I want them to be able to speak Yiddish, and also that said language is considered by some to simply be a German dialect. However, their divergence, as well as the heat of the moment, and with how fast a native German speaker can speak (Flame Thrower and Rearranger are obviously not native speakers of Yiddish--I may get into why they do speak it at some point, as their father isn't supposed to be Hasidic), means any mutual intelligibility can understandably dissolve.
