I've started working on the second issue of "Sir Jonathan Wintersgill Marvelous and his Amazing Journey Through the Great Continental Expanse of the Southern Americas" ( first issue is available at indyplanet.com if anyone is interested) . I have the entire 2nd issue roughed out and I just started doing the finished inks last week.

I have 3 pages to show, all comments apprciated :)

I like your sense of black and white. And I like that there is a sense of movement in there. Post more stuff. ;)

hey thanks guys :]

I'm away from te drawing table for the week, but once I have some more stuff I'll post it :]

BTW, for those that have asked about were to get a copy of the 1st issue, its up at indyplanet.com. Unfortunatly they cant seem to get a full 6 page preview up inspite of my asking them to fix it for about a month. But if anyone wants I can post the first six pages so you can check out the story

either way here is a link:

Thanks for your comments guys :]

Kong, actually I do my inking on a wacom tablet using Manga Studio :]

BenelGermosen, I'll be working on the color soon enough, like in about an hour :p

This is great stuff and IMO,it would be a crime to put it in color!

nice 'empire/c3po' homage last frame page '24.'

i like the story and i like the art. i have 2 crits:

1. the big monster attacking them frame 1 page 1 makes you think oversized tiki, then it's a bit confusing when he uses laser eyes. i just didn't get the immediate impression it was mechanical. maybe the color fixes it?

2. your first 2 frames are identical..........which is insane. you're trying to impress readers enough in the first few pages of your book to get them to read the rest. double up on frames on page 12 or 17 but don't do it on page 1. it's confusing - i thought i needed to find the minute waldo difference in second frame - and thus trips up the flow of the read and enjoyability of it. and that, at the most important moment of your ENTIRE book. add a new frame there and you're set.

Thanks for your comments jeffo46 and mrbrice :]

mrbrice, the first page is duplicate panel because in the script the chapters all start out with the narration and a sepia toned panel that changes to full color in the next panel. Its meant as a cinematic effect. Sort of like an establishing shot of an old photo that morphs into a moving picture.

As far as the giant stone statue that shoots laser beams out of its eyes...that is part of the lost city of gold. Exactly why its a giant stone statue with laser-beam emmiting eyes,....well that gets explained later in the story within pages that I haven't posted :]

Thanks for taking the time to write out your impressions, its appreciated

Let me start off by saying there is ABSOLUTELY nothing wron with the color scheme or the coloring itself... I just really dig the black and white. Either way, there's ALOT of energy on these pages! (or should I say "coming off these pages") Great stuff!
