There are a couple of minor perspective issues on this page, but the artwork is pretty nice, overall! There are some interesting high-angle shots from Bee Man's point of view, which are kind of a rarity for Mike and the Ninja. The tint on the window of the Bob truck and Todd's hand pressed against it is a nice touch, as well. Concerning this upcoming handful of pages featuring Bee Man and Mike's first encounter, I remember working really hard on the artwork. It was a challenge by default because there's a vehicle involved, as well as a bunch of buildings, which are always tricky despite being nothing more than a bunch of rectangles.
Mike's facial expressions here are good, too. I can tell that he is genuinely upset by Todd's comments. I like seeing this kind of real, human interaction.
