Poor Fizz, it's rough being a sidekick. Again, this is a time when I wish I had a few more pages to work with. It's tough to feel the emotion of the loss of a character when you've only known him for six pages. I think the beats work reasonably well, but I could have used a little more time to really punch up the emotion.
That may not necessarily have made the moment better though because truthfully, I think my initial inspiration for this moment was laughs. For some reason, I found it amusing that Jump was a character that went through sidekicks like other people go through um... disposable socks. Do they make those? Any ways, maybe you understand what I'm getting at.
With more time, maybe the audience would have liked Fizz too much, making the moment too sad. Of course, most people don't think there is much humour in death, that's probably why I can never find funny sympathy cards in the card store.
