A Breaking News Comic
This was a new way of working for me. Usually, I plan a comic out, then start working on panels from the beginning and try to complete one panel with inks before going on to the next. This is risky, because it is very possible to realize later on that you should have done something different. You can paint yourself into a corner. So far, I haven't done that, but the risk remains.
Once I penciled this, I started finishing the panels, first from the start and then jumping around on the page as ideas came to me. I wound up at the end all the same.
This one was easier and faster than the others because the territory was familiar, both in terms of the places I was going to draw and the story itself.
And I am posting this one a mere nine days after "A Walk in the Dark" Page 2. And before Labor Day.
