Ha!
I love it-- great banter and a huge panel. Really fun stuff.

Thanks guys. I had another idea, one that was more humorous, but after reading the first five pages I thought it might be better to keep in line with the current progression of things. I think too much jerking this way and that will make for a schizophrenic read later. I'm sure I'll have the opportunity to jerk things left or right later. :-)

As to the previous discussion, I tend to mix up the digital and traditional, but this one is all photoshop. I've got a wacom cintiq, so that makes it a lot easier. I really enjoy working digitally but I still love inking traditionally more, hence the mixing it up. It's also good to get my eyes away from the computer screens.

Can't wait to see what comes next!

Fantastic!!!!!

I forgot to ask (and don't currently know another way), can whomever is our fearless leader change the link on my name to my blog? It's http://penickart.blogspot.com

My main site seems to serve more or less as a portfolio site nowadays. I don't keep up with it like I do my blog or DeviantArt page.

Thanks!

Woohoo! Action! Way to go, Mike!

And, yeah, I'll change that link for you.

Thanks Scott!

OK...so somehow, that blue, egg-headed guy in orbit is manipulating the Planet's naturally occurring mind bending waves to mess with Abe's mind and make physical manifestations of his past friends and fears...but to what end? What, I ask you...WHAT?

DADICUS said...

Don't worry fella's I'm gonna fix all this crazy Sh!t!!!! I'm %35 done!

mattcrap said...

In line with what Scotty was setting up, I see the Loconium Ore as the culprit for all the manifestations. We need to pull in the Blue guy back into the mix toot-sweet or that plot line will seem ignored in later readings. I didn't see it as the blue-egg-guy manipulating the planet's waves, but more luring Abe to the planet, knowing what would happen once he got there...in true villain fashion.

I would like to see some more fighting and tying up the monster end before jumping back again to the blue guy. We seem to do one panel "action" then jump to something else. No sustained storytelling.

DADICUS said...

Ryan I promise.........I GOT THIS!

Heckboy said...

Ya...it's fun to keep twisting the other guy's stuff, but let's try to build more an twist less.

I would think that this monster fight with running commentary from the ghosts could go on for at least 3-5 pages...we should try to avoid jumping too much so it doesn't read like pages are missing

Ben Perkins said...

I agree with Heckboy. I think all the elements are in place to start tying these things together and explore what they mean. But that doesn't mean we can't add a bit of fun crazy here and there.

I had a buddy of mine read all the pages, and he really like it, and he's not a comic reader. He thought it was fun and funny, and he didn't seem confused. I mean, we are only six pages in so we have a lot more to explore.

For what it's worth, I think things are going along fine. I think each of us is proficient and smart enough to really make something of this story.

Excelsior!!!
