Anatomy of a page part 3

Welcome back fellers. We been a bit busy fillin’ our blankets here that we realized it’s been spell since we last posted some work. Well the holidays were great but even better than gettin’ a new iron from jolly ol’ Saint Nick is the fact that 4 is printing as you read this and 5 is in post. We’re gettin’ pretty damn good at this funny book business. Take a peek at issue 5 page 12

This is how the page started. Pretty basic but we really liked the idea of literally breaking the gutter in

This is how the page started. Pretty basic but we really liked the idea of literally breaking the gutter in panel 2. After reading Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics again, I realized this is one of those perfect moments to show what a comic can do that no other medium can do as effectively. So with that, we moved forward.

Here the color has been sapped out and most of the line work has been reinforced to a certain degree. We want to keep the patter motif around the edges but thought this would be more manageable in Photoshop.

And this is how we ended it. We are starting to develop a nice working rhythm and division of labor that not only speeds things up but also ensures a certain amount of consistency from page to page. Hope you enjoyed the breakdown as much as we did creating it. See you soon
