Here it is. The final color may be changed but for now.

brwling is another way to say fighting!

Xia> good job man... yes I think you should write a bit about the characters, even for you it'd be easy to remember. I think he'll be an intersting feature! Wonder with whome he'll side... :P

Thanks & Peace!

Top down hair wins out in the end!

I like the idea of a short bio, like in the old Street Fighter games, maybe have it as a feature on the Kapow site.

Although if it became a feature personally I'd have them in poses that show off their character slightly. Like if this guy is a bit of a brawler, have him sitting on some guy he's punched out or something, or having Mei chowing down on some food and looking at the viewer like she just noticed us or something.

dahaca> Thanks brother, I am excited to bring him out too. But the story have to goes on sequentially. :)

Luca> Thanks bro, I will try to do more so.

negar> ;( Don't be sad, eventually he will come out. Soon enough, I wish I would have more time to do Manga pages, 3 pages a week. But it's going to be realllll hard.

Chris> Chinese Zombies are coming up! Watch out!
Yeah, thanks for the feedback also. Sometimes I can get caught up with flashy spiky hair and such, thanks for saving me from the unnecessary flash of the 90's
Good idea on the showcase!
I will try to do that.

Thanks to you all guys!!!
