The teaser was good... except Cannon Fodder and KNAIABMS didn't appear
in the rest of the story.  Your teaser, therefore, should have been a
recap of #6 (which would have helped the reader better understand who
the New Misfits and the Lion Pack were and why they were fighting) and
this segment should ahve been moved to the end of the story where it
would have served as the cliffhanger for #8.  (Am I good or what? :))
