Chinatown Bus No.50

The soundtrack to this strip is “No Compassion” by The Talking Heads

Okay, so this is is more like page 53 because I’ve inserted some splash pages after the fact to slow down the narrative, but I can’t tell you how much it means to me that this thing, when I finally get it done, is actually going to look like a real graphic novel.

When I was planning the comicĀ out, almost four years ago, I thought it would only be 24 pages long tops. The ending is still gong to be the same as I originally wrote as well as most of the story points. You see, the story didn’t grow from the end but all throughout, like a rising loaf of bread. Scenes needed more dialogue, more pictures, more space to breathe to tell the story I wanted to tell. When all is said and done, it should be about 80 pages. If I stay on point, I should be able to finish this year.

Whether you’ve been with me from the beginning or this is your first time through, thank you very much for reading.
