OMTOB Pages 1-3

I had nothing to do with today’s post! What a start. The first 3 pages of the book are totally finished to give you a feel for it. As you can see, the story is by Jim Shooter, the art is courtesy penciler John Romita, Jr. & inker Al Milgrom, letters by Jim Novak, colors …

The Official Marvel Comics Try-Out Book

Probably not the next thing you expected to see on this site! In 2018 & 2019, I was on a Spider-Man comic collecting kick. Trying to fill in my collection of old stuff, trying to find all kinds of obscure things. This book has always been a fascination for me, so the Spidey binge seemed …

The End? For Now…

Very mean of me, I’m sorry. This wasn’t always the plan, if that makes it any better. In more ways than one. I came up with that last bit while working on the previous post. The end was to be more or less the same, but no glow. But what would the fun be in …

139-142

Whoa! That’s it! That’s the end of this story. That’s mean of me, right? Well, it gets worse: That’s the end of Closed Galaxy for awhile. I know! I am an absolute villain! I would certainly suggest re-reading Chapter 6 from the top since it took such an embarrassingly long time to be released. You …

136-138

Kinda corny, huh? But it feel like a natural response. I cheated a little, using the light from the festival sign to brighten up these pages even though it didn’t seem that intense before. Unlimited power! This is the real end of the riot scene. There’s an epilogue coming up whenever I get it finished, …

Guys, I am so excited that I don’t have to write “WRRRRR” across the top of any more panels! Less than 2 months between updates is pretty good for me, at this point. And, you know, I took my time with these. I wanted to try to get this moment as right as I could. …

Hey, look, we’re back! Welcome to 2019, also. I genuinely do not even want to know how long it’s been since the last post. You could be forgiven for thinking I quit. Life just got in the way. But, here’s 3 more pages, at least. You could also be forgiven for forgetting that last time, …

Well, this took longer to put up than I’d hoped. But, here it is! Over the course of making this comic, I’ve felt regret that Jac and Nav didn’t seem like they had a whole lot to do, really. I started correcting for Jac, I think she’s ended up being ok, but I never really …

Jac is definitely making the Metal Gear Solid sound in panel 6. People said they were stressed about the previous page. And you know what? Fair cop. Child endangerment isn’t the noblest of dramatic devices, that’s for sure. It’s not like I’d write anything bad happening, of course… I’m not Mark Millar… but it can …

When the assembly line breaks down.

Obviously, things are not cranking like they used to. It’s been, what, 3 months since my last update? I’m no less interested in making the comic, but it’s just harder than it used to be. The actual pages are harder… “Yes, let’s do a huge set piece in a riot, at night, with a bunch …
