I managed to pick up an issue the other day. The stories and art were fantastic! You can really feel the love everyone has for the series. Is there an issue #3 on the way?

Oh, wow! This looks really good...

Hopefully, Barnes & Nobles will still have a few issues in stock.

For anyone interested, iTunes is offering Hotel Chevalier as a free download. It's suppose to be the prologue to Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited.

Enjoy!

Whoohoo!!!

Hopefully, I'll die before you stop drawing Copper. What Bill Watterson did, nearly killed me. :(

I loved this film, too. I couldn't agree more with Kazu or say it any better. It's a real treat to watch a western of this caliber on the big screen.

Yes, never touch the brightness/contrast sliders again! I agree with Matt and Neil. Brightness/Contrast isn't recommended for high-end output because it sacrifices image detail for speed and ease of use. For B&W line art, I recommend: Image > Adjustments > Curves... Keep in mind that you might have...

That's simply gorgeous! I love the color, line work, movement and composition. Everything works so well together.

I'm curious though, how far above the jungle are they? Shouldn't the robot's smoke trail be closer together?

That looks amazing. Independent game developers are really changing the gaming industry. Ever hear of Media Molecule? They started out the same way by creating games they love. I wish you success with Insanely Twisted game.

uhm... Any chance for a PC version?

But I still don't understand the original argument; can you flesh that out a bit? How exactly is representing a story panel-by-panel "micromanaging"? I would like to think of this more as an open-minded discussion, rather than an "argument." My reason for starting this conversation is to simply wid...

Are comics micromanaging imagination?

I thought this might be an interesting topic to post here for discussion. I would go more in-depth, but I'm curious to what responses I might get to an open question.


If you choose to tell your story panel by panel, do you feel you are micromanaging the imagination of your audience?

That's an amazingly, beautifully rendered illustration, Matt. Your work reminds me of Tony DiTerlizzi. I don't know who's art I like more. :)

I think if you are having any doubts about working for free, then don't do it. You'll only regret it later, especially if some good should come to them from it and you're not included. Free art is a gift and gifts shouldn't come with any attachments.
