So the idea here is that Bob is absorbing negative energy (kind of like the river of slime in Ghostbusters 2, I guess), which is the source of his power. The only problem is that I didn't know how to show that graphically, so he just talks us through it, instead. This is okay--he probably would have said all of that, anyway. But some pulsing energy or something visual to accompany the talk would have been nice. It would have given what is happening more impact.
Not much else to say here. The beads of sweat on Mike's brow in the last panel are a nice touch.
