Chapter one went through quite a few iterations. The real challenge was establishing the technique for keeping our reality and hallucinations clear. Luckily, Noel’s storytelling skills solved a lot of that for me. By using the ink wash and hard line styles, you get a great visual cue that establishes where we are, and, as you’ll soon see, when we are. This script probably took the longest to get through just because there’s so much information to deliver in such a compact space. Hopefully, we succeeded.
As always, any questions on format or the changes from script to comic are welcome in the comments.
