Well. This seems evil. But maybe Deus just has a flourish for the dramatic. Or at least dramatic lighting.
You think supervillains have a bunch of sweet one liners ready to fire off depending on what set up line the hero give them? I would. If you can afford to build a death ray, you can hire some writers.
There’s a Mitchell and Webb sketch that sort of plays on this but I couldn’t find it on youtube. Here’s a link to it on VideoBash? Never heard of them so no guarantees you’ll be able to view it wherever you are. Basically just watch all of That Mitchell and Webb Look, cause it’s the best.
Not too much else to say about this page other than we’re almost done with this scene, so hang in there if it’s not punching your goofy nerd woman-child card.
I have a draft of what I’m thinking about using for the cover for the book posted over at Patreon. I mean it’ll probably be the cover, I don’t have a lot of time to do a bunch of alternates, though ones that mimic some other classic styles or a Liefeld-esque one with lots of cross hatching and pouches and foil embossed would be pretty funny I think. No idea what that would cost to actually print but it could make an amusing stretch goal.
Speaking of the book, I have all the comics laid out in it, but I have to figure out what to do about some of the double pages. Some break across facing pages, which is ideal, but some wind up back to back. It’s not a big deal in most of those cases since it’s just action spread across multiple pages, but there’s one or two pages that it’s pretty critical they face each other. The only way to nudge them is to insert something before them that breaks up the story, like a pin up or a title page, but that’s not ideal. It may be the only option though. I’ll figure it out I suppose.
I still need to scan some old art and write up goodies for bonus material. I’d really like to have finished books ready in time for A-kon this year which is in June, but honestly I don’t know how realistic that is. Kickstarters take 30 days to run and I’ve no idea how long it takes to print up proofs of a book then do a whole run. I’m sure it depends entirely on the printer you use and the size of the run.
