Check, check, check!

 Hello Dear Readers.

I think you're in for a treat today, not a treat of quantity, but of quality.  Here is is!

Page 89

THIS is where I wanted the quality to be.  Good character designs, good drawings, exciting action, personality and emotion shown.  OOH, and it's dynamic too!

Panel 1 - Mom being moved out to an ambulance on a stretcher.  Tough to draw to get the perspective right and not make the stretcher look TOO huge or Mom small.  CHECK!

Panel 2 - Good drawing of Fancy running and the jeep looks quite good and solid.  CHECK!

Panel 3 - I know I said I wouldn't do crazy camera angles, but I thought this wasn't too nuts and would be pretty easy to film - Did you hear I got this thing optioned?  No, me neither.  Anyway, should this ever get sold and they want to film it, this'll be an easy shot to get.  Drawing a bit of detail on the jeep hood and the shadows helps this look not so flat.  CHECK!

Panel 4 - Fancy looks tired, still a bit sick but sure is determined.  The screen left hand on the steering wheel isn't quite so great, but I think it works.  CHECK!

Panel 5 - Reuse of previous image.  CHECK!  Good time savings!

Panel 6.  GREAT drawing of the jeep.  Also, I think I finally got Dave looking about right - Mid 60's ex military man who's had it with the buttoned up, pressed shirt look, enjoys the donut beside his coffee a bit much, so one turns into two, but he could still bench press you, your mommy and a heap of your stinky diapers.

Ah, I love when a page comes together!

  1. VERY good page. No, make that -- VERY GREAT page!

    It's everything you (not so humbly) say yourself. There's emotion and dynamism and the story is shifting into overdrive!

    My fav panel is the overhead shot of the jeep driving. You really get the feeling of speed.

    It's all great. What the heck is gonna happen next?!!!
