Not yet.

10.54 – Happy Landings

It’s kind of an intriguing feature of comics as a medium that profanity can be implied rather than invoked specifically. While the original intent of this was probably moral-majority censorship, I note that at least in certain circumstances the “censored” version is actually more effective, as it increases reader involvement by encouraging a mental game of “pick-your-own-curse-word.” (This effect is used in Bloom County a lot too.)

On a side note, this has been a very bad day for Tiki.

This one was much less nauseating than the Neil/Lila ones I had to do in the past.

In fiction writing, the thing in panel 3 is called a “plot hook.” (WARNING: The preceding sentence is a terrible pun and does NOT in any way represent a correct usage of the term.)

Another one of these Boring Pages(TM). Don’t worry, though, I’ve completely finished the script for this issue and I can guarantee that there won’t be any more.

The artwork here presented some interesting challenges. Two characters with skin the same shade as their uniforms and in some cases at varying distances from the camera. Managing the space in the first panel was tricky, but I think it worked out nicely in the end.

I’m very disappointed in this page. It should have been rewritten.

So much for Act 1. Stay tuned for Act 2.

In my original thumbnails, all the thrilling action of this page was spread across two pages! Sorry you missed out on that stuff.
