Finally finished it. Here's the first 25%.
Guess it's a little deceptive to call this a sixty-four page story when there are so few panels per page.
Marty, I'm sorry but I decided not to hand-letter my word balloons. I considered your suggestion very seriously, and tried an experiment or two. I love the word balloons in your comics. They have such personality and are just right for the work you are doing, but in the end I couldn't tap into my own inner Artie Simek. Maybe next time.
So "Raymond and the Giant Robot Attack" represents the most I could do in six months of spare time, mornings and weekends. The thing I'm happiest about is that I could follow through, finish the project, and have a good time doing it. It's another step in the development of my own peculiar aesthetic. Having fully accepted that I will never be Frazetta or Kirby frees me to do as I please.
