The Ultimate Deathlings Preview!

In the recent poll, the top vote-getters have been "A Fully Colored Page" and "A Page with Dialogue"... I've been giving it some serious thought, and it's time to show you a page with everything in place. Specifically, I'm proud to present the first page of Issue 0, with the current near-final drafts of the colors and dialogue/lettering. You simply will not see anything more complete than this until the official preview starts in a few weeks.

The Deathlings: Anne's Story - Issue 0, Page 1 (of 5)
Writer & Letters: Ian C. Struckhoff
Line Artist: Michela Da Sacco
Color Artist: Juri Hayasaka

I hope this gives you all a taste for what our book will be like, and how wonderful the artwork is. It almost doesn't matter how good my writing turns out to be, because at the very least it was an excuse to put together an amazing art team and let them do fantastic work!

After this preview, I'll be scaling back on the preview of pages and artwork on the blog, until the actual Preview issue is released online. Keep your eyes out here for progress updates, posts about our technique and process, and even updates from other members of the team. Near the end of this month, I'll also be updating you to announce when the preview will be available.

What would you like to see in the next update?
