  1. Very cool and stylish. The only part I got a little mixed up in was the second to last panel’s word bubble placement. But I figured it out after a re-read. I like this story.

  2. Thanks Mike! Boy it feels good to hear positive feedback like this. Yeah, you nailed it I did struggle with the bubbles on on that panel and do agree. I think I need to start laying in my bubbles first like a lot of folks seem to do. Listening to a Sequalab podcast a few weeks ago I heard Jeremy Mullins talking about how the art needs to cater to the text and story and not the other way around. I do fall victim to not wanting to cover up my art. When I thumb it out I try and see where bubbles “may” fit but don’t actually set them and draw around them. But dude, I do appreciate the kindness. Note: I need to figure out a way to surf at work so I can reply more quickly. Maybe lunches will be okay.

  3. This may seem ass-backwards but I tend to draw my art around my text layout. I’ve always subscribed to the theory that the art supports the story but I know plenty of artists who will say I’m full of it. LOL

  4. You are definitely not alone in your thinking. Our next update is chock full of talk so I will try this approach when I lay it out.

  5. Hah – thanks Jarrett! Maybe one of these days I’ll get ’em even but hey work in progress right?
