Hey, guys. Another week has past and time to change and or remove a letter, how about RIGHT.

Obviously feel free to change it up. But this is kind of an interesting word to see what it might conjure up in people's minds.


All the best! --DB

Almost all Superheroes can be frightened...

Nice pages, Marco.

I left a half a post first time...

Anyhoo, great stuff. I hope you don't mind if I comment on a couple of things.

Page 1, panel 3. It's a lovely drawing but you've crossed the axis of action from the previous panel. Also, the character who's doing the choking is point left instead of right which kind of puts the breaks on the story telling. It bounces us back into the previous panels and then to the last panel instead of the second last panel. When we pass to panel 4 you cross the action axis again which I found a little jarring.

And in the last panel, the arm of the strangler is covering the face of the victim. It reminds me of acting across the face in animation, it's something I'd personally avoid.

Hope you don't mind me commenting on those things.

You can of course tell me to mind my own business :-)

But all in all, great stuff. Love the the surreal feel you got going on.

All the best.

Glad you didn't mind me offering some crit there.

There's a FANTASTIC book for comic artsts called On Film Directing by David Mammet. It's for film students but it really helps with comic book story telling too. Even if you know the stuff it's a great reference book.

Also, the 5 C's of cinematography is another great reference book.

And if you don't have them, get yourself the two books on visual narrative and graphic story telling by Will Eisner. Indispensable reference guides for visual story telling.

If you don't have them, get them! I DEMAND IT! :-)

Really though, FANTASTIC books. They help me an enormous amount and many of my peers.
