Hey y'all!

My name is Deniz Camp. Some time ago I posted a short comic I wrote and co-created with the great Federico De Luca & ET Dollman, MURDER ONE (http://imgur.com/a/KaK4m) and got some really kind feedback.

I've written more since, all of which are in progress, but right now I'm here to talk about a project I've been working on for literal years. It's a short, 16 page Science Fiction story called WAR INTELLIGENCE. It's penciled by Dario Duluoz, one of the best artists I've had the privilege to work with, and one of my best friends in the comics world. It's inked by Fabio Frangione, under Dario's careful supervision. It is currently being lettered by ET Dollman, a writer and artist in his own right. And it's a thing of beauty.

We're coming close to the finish line, at least insofar as anyone is every finished with art, and I couldn't be prouder to be a part of it.

Here are some early inked pages.

Thank you, Bishop!

It sounds trite, but the best are honestly yet to come!

Hey guys!

Four more beautiful pages from WAR INTELLIGENCE, including my favorite two pages spread of the bunch!

I hope you dig them as much as I do!

Wow! Those are some powerful layouts! I really like the vertical pages, if you know what I mean. They make for some very striking images.

Question: In that two page spread, wasn't that kid (the one getting blasted) carrying a gun? Where did it go?

Bishop!

Thanks for checking them out, and for your comments! Glad you are digging it, and I couldn't agree more about the 'striking image'. This story was originally written to be 8 pages, but Dario kept expanding it. The entire first section (everything before the kid kneeling down) was his invention, and then I went back and wrote narration over it. It's a real collaboration, and I've learned a lot about the importance, and power, of the striking image.

As to the gun, I think it was an artistic choice to omit it from that particular panel - occluded by the action - but you'll see it on the next page.

Later in the week, I'll be posting some lettered pages!

Again, thanks for checking it out.

Hey guys!

Iím back with a lettered preview of the first 5 pages! Letters were done by the AMAZING ET Dollman, and I think he murdered it.

Absolutely gorgeous artwork...stunning lines and inkwork.
Just a mention that you do have a typo.."Intelligence" is spelled incorrectly in the artwork. You probably caught that.

Desaad

Thank you!

I did catch that a while ago, but somehow posted from the older version of the pages; the preview copies I've sent out, and the ashcans I've had printed, don't suffer the defect.

Glad you dug it! Stay tuned for more info.
