The established existence of a musical-warrior class meant that WAV didn’t necessarily have to be Best at this point, but the similar instrument was enough to make some of you place your bets.

I suggested some kind of sheet music lettering effect here, but Flo deferred: she didn’t know enough about sheet music and knew that y’all would spot any fakery quickly if we tried to front.

Instead, the effect of his music was described as “like the paths that Tron lightcycles might leave behind if they had a full range of motion.” A little abstract, maybe, but we knew John was the right guy to take that idea and run with it. Love that panel 2, which does sort of look like sheet music as designed by an entirely alien race.
