Well, it’s been awhile since the last update, thanks in part to our old enemy COVID-19, and in part due to the fact that I’m doing something a bit different with issue #3. For the first two issues of The Crimebusters, I basically did the books in the Marvel Method — I drew all the pages and then went back and wrote all the dialogue
This time around, though, I decided the story was too complex for that, so I needed to do all the dialogue first. And that’s taken a lot longer than usual, as changes to the text necessitated reworking significant portions of the story.
After a couple extensive rewrites, though, issue #3 is finally in place to be drawn. And the good news is that the art is now the last step, so once the art is done, the book will be done and ready to go to Kickstarter!
Just when that will happen I’m not quite sure, as I don’t want to commit to anything given the nature of the world right now. But I have finished the first three pages in addition to the two covers I’ve shown previously, so I thought I’d give a little sneak preview of “The Spell of the Sorcerer!”
And the covers!
And the back cover!
