Christ, I’ve over thought this one. It’s one of the reasons that this is the first comic I’ve posted in over three weeks. I’ve had this story on deck in my mind for two years now and of course nothing is turning out as good as imagined it. Oh well. Anyone who doesn’t soldier on with whatever skills they have at the moment never finishes any major work they start.
-EDIT: This story has grown to be almost twice the size of what I originally intended an it isn’t even halfway complete yet! Having just finished the penciling the penultimate chunk of the second act, some of the first act, drawn on much smaller paper, was starting to look clunky by comparison. One of the most important things I’ve learned about comics is that if you don’t like a page or a panel, redraw it. To wit, I’ve redone the first page as two and editied three other pages and drawn one new one. I hope this results in a clearer story of broader scope.
You can find the old pages below the new ones for comparison.
In any case, enjoy.
