EDIT: I tweaked this comic just a bit. The background action in the original didn’t quite convey what was in my head. The idea was that Agent Thorn took most of the troops inside, hence the way Private Stevens dissapears between panels 3 and 5. But the comic never shows or tells you that. And if the other troops are inside, Thorn’s last line doesn’t make much sense. Hopefully the updated version is a bit easier to follow, if unfortunately wordier. I also tweaked the artwork a bit: gave Thorton’s goggles some lenses, toned down the background art a bit, changed the background shadows in panel 4, which were way too dynamic for the non action in that panel. I think the comic was a bit too busy art wise, made it hard to focus on the characters.
For the record, the original image is here. Chances are, aside from the dialogue the differences are only noticeable to me.
Ooof. Another comic that took a long time to make. It didn’t help that I stayed up late last night playing Dragon Age instead of drawing. (As an aside, Dragon Age is really, really good. I haven’t been this caught up in a RPG since Final Fantasy 7-8.)
Not much to add here, see you guys on Tuesday where we find out how our heroes react to this little bit of law enforcement.
