Hello, all,

I hope this is the right place for this as I'm looking for some feedback. I've worked in magazine production for the last decade and a half and I'd like to broaden my horizons by getting into comic book lettering and production.

The attached art comes from a comic published by Eerie Publications back in the early 70's. I removed all the original text in Photoshop and added my own in Illustrator.

Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks!

Not bad.

Couple nitpicks.

The "Dammit..." balloon might get cut off and should be butted to the edge. Or I might have placed it to the left of the head.

The "Hmm..." thought balloon should be moved away from the edge and the little thinking balloons should be coming from his forehead.

Just some nitpicks.

Cool... mostly worked for me too... I would have mentioned moving back a bit from the edges, if that hadn't already been mentioned.

In addition to what everyone else said:

- tail on "cheezy gallows" is not coming from center of balloon
- more padding on "the whole horror" and the two thought balloons
