Thanks, Phil. It's definitely a fun challenge. I'm working on the next one (for March) and it came surprisingly easy. A more lightweight story, more gag oriented. Kind of like those Twinkie/Cup Cake one-page stories in the 1970s comics.
It's really about maximizing the twin tools of comics, the right words with the right pictures. Which of course creates that beautiful and mysterious hybrid.. A Comic!
Right on man... I love those Twinkie comic page ads from that era of comics... it's so retro and cool looking back at it, and I loved your nod to that with the ad for churros in your El Muerto book. Can't wait for next month's comic!
Looking good! I see what you meant by making sure all the elements wrap up into one page (that’s a challenge for sure!) but you pulled it off well and even added a twist at the end of it all :] I like the red bullet that flies through the empty panel space too!
Thanks. A friend of mine looked my layouts over and suggested I should somehow highlight the supernatural nature of the bullet. I like how I was able to use the gutters between the panels. When doing a one-pager, every single space counts!
