Here we are.... back to the operating , er... I mean drawing table. I have nothing too noteworthy to show you, ( 'cept this nifty widdle unfinished page I'll be hammerin on this weekend ) the real news is what I am not going to show you, the story is finally done. Yes... that's right, for those of you who have not been paying attention in class, ...... I have been pumping out pages of this comic for months now with no script, no thumbnails, no "real" idea where this comic was going, or what it would be when it was done... if it was done! What I am trying clumsily to say is simply this... I "know" now. I know what the remainder of the pages will be, what the dialogue is... everything. It just finally stitched itself together.... as I knew it would.

I don't really recommend this method of comics making. It certainly is not for the faint of heart, but for some reason it just works for me. It isn't always easy. You have to trust that the pages being fed to you from inside your subconscious will coalesce into some kind of story that will be readable, and entertaining. That is a tall order some days. It is almost like drawing in a darkened room.

The reason I do it this way is because the finished product I find to be more compelling, more balanced, and more seamless than trying to make the art fit the script. It gives a wide berth to creative impulse because you are not tied down to word, or form. The hope is that some of the anxiety, and sheer suspense I feel waiting to see where the art takes the story to will transfer to the reader also.

Any-hooo, Didn't mean to get to deep on you peace puppies out there in retro land. I'll be saying so long now... watts, and watts of work to do! Later~

Just some left over trick-o-treat candy for all you hungry geeks up in da house. Yo check it dudes... I am sending out the first lettered page in this strand. Partly because I want to make up for the fact that it is only sparsly outlined so far, partly to hook you doggy-dogs into the story, and partly because I'm so frickin' jazzed about this page.

Now, just sos you know.... This is not how I letter a page, and it WILL be re-done correctly, and with tweeked dialouge, but I just thought after 8 previous pages to ogle you may want to actually read a page for a change. Consider it a belated Halloween treat.

Now do me a favor and leave me some feedback. This page really pumps me as I said because it is the second pivot pin to the story, and I would really like to know if it is solid. Alright... I know its really just some scribbles, and hen scratching, but can you at least imagine it as being solid? Huh... can yeah?

I know you could. You guys rock~
