SwordCat Writes | A Digital Letter Column


I've had people complain that her motivations weren't explained in the first few pages, but I liked the approach of watching her act oddly for a superhero and THEN finding out why she's like this.

I worked really hard on this one. Didn't get the dialogue perfectly sorted until this afternoon. And page 24 (which is finished and will be posted Friday MORNING) really kicked my ass -- the most white-out I've used since... well, the last time I used a lot of white-out.

Anyway, now you know why Kathryn's so bloody sad.

BTW, the first one to work out all the Freudian symbolism in my comic gets a cookie or something.

Soup Sock,
-Caley

Exactly! I mean, if you explain EVERYTHING about what's going on, it becomes waaay too wordy and kills the mystery. I appreciate your story-telling style more. (Though in all honesty, there are people that make really confusing stories where the confusion lasts for chapters until it's actually frustrating to read - they go too far in the other direction!)

I think what it is that makes me like the black and white so much more then the color is the way you shade. The heavy blacks and rough shading you use really make everything jump off the page, give everything serious depth and the color somehow takes away from that. It's a shame because I know so many people won't read something unless it's in color and saying "who needs them" is stupid. A reader is a reader is a reader, I only wish more people loved black and white as much as I do. Granted it doesn't suit everything but here? Yeah, it really fits.

Again, thanks. It sure would make pre-production (and print) a heckuva lot easier if everyone saw things your way.

Ah, now I think I understand more. There was a journal at the start of this issue, and it was written by a person whose name is Robert. Now, we see a person whose name is Robert on screen. Is this a coincidence? No, I don't think so. I am guessing that these two Roberts are the same person. If we had seen a picture of Robert writing the journal at the start of the issue, the resonance would be more clear. The dialogue itself presents a string of riddles. Presumably, very intelligent and motivated readers will remember the riddles long enough to understand the answers when they are provided on the page.
