Comments: The roller derby girls just hanging out and indulging in some drama. These girls do love to skate and they think anyone skating with them should love it just as much.
The skaters have a bonding party and they compare scars. The skaters do have fun just playing around.
We need to see more focus on letting us the readers know who each character is. Having an issue focus on one or two of the characters would help. Or telling us more about each one.
The art does illustrate these women as real woman and skaters. These are not super skinny models they are roller derby girls.
All the drama needs to be offset with some happy moments. All doom and gloom is not good.
The skaters themselves are all good people and outside of skating, they have a whole other life.
