20090815 (33) – Got started on this one around noon, then my mom and my cousin Joe (whom I haven’t seen in about ten years) showed up. We did the museum, the comic shop, etc – had some fun; I got restocked, have a vacuum cleaner, etc. It’s now 19:35 and this page is assembled. Cropping all around – no one panel in particular, though two and five got the brunt of it.

NOTE TO SELF: Add SFX to indicate that West is wiping his hand against his pant leg. While this has always been his reaction to shaking hands with Malky, it’s not immediately obvious without action indicators or an onomatopoeic sound effect.

Possibly both.

20091008 (32) – Lettered. Still having alignment problems – you take a couple of weeks off of lettering and look what happens!


Mastering notes, 2016.12.07 – Removed some very unnecessary and clumsily-placed dialogue from panel three.
