SwordCat Writes | A Digital Letter Column


I just edited the balloons on this page. It was the first one I lettered, and it looked like it.

I hated how Richard's (Jack's dad) balloon turned out in the original, so I made it rounder here. And the radio balloons in 4 and 5 were originally cut off by the top of the panel, which kinda made it look like it was Richard talking, so I lowered them -- they are now the only example in this project of a balloon overlapping a character BUT IS HE EVEN THERE?????

DUN-DUN-DUUUUNNNNN!!!!

Thanks! Even with all the pages I've done since, I still have a great fondness for this opening action hook. Hope you enjoy the rest of the ride as much.

Thanks!

The conceit that Jack legitimately doesn't know if he's crazy or not was fun to play with, as well as showing that beneath the Captain-Ahab-terrible-cop was a guy who could still be goaded into helping people.

I mean you can draw, and you can draw much better than me. But what I really love here is the color selection!

Oh, thank you so much! I got crazy atmospheric and lit it like I was lighting a movie. I like my other color pages, but this is the best in a lot of ways.

Beautiful artwork! And encountering a swordswoman on a horse would be just crazy.

Thanks for the compliment! And yeah, that's why I liked writing and drawing this scene so much -- the juxtaposition of modern and medieval was a hoot to balance.

I read this comic twice, and then I read this page twice, and then I read the comments, and at last I finally got it. The second man in the front seat is not really there, not in the usual, corporeal sense. Instead, the man in the shotgun seat is either a ghost or a memory. This would be easier for the reader to understand if the character were drawn as transparent, like a ghost in an old Atlas comic. A good example is at

Also, I finally realized that the 'ghost' is the father of the policeman driving the car. This would be easier to understand if the character addressed his son as 'son' more than once on the page. Using the word 'son' this often would be less 'realistic', but it would serve the needs of a graphic novel better. For example, the father would phrase his first sentence as "Son, as your father, I have to warn you. You can't just discharge your weapon anywhere you feel like..." That would be much more clear, and there is space in the panel for the extra words in the bubble, as well.

Thank you for your in-depth comments, and you are very right -- the version you had should have been clearer.

So, as of 06/23/2016, I have edited/rewrote this page to make the Jack/Dick father/son thing clearer, along with making the ghost/potential figment angle clearer.
