This is the left page of a two-page spread. While both pages can be read individually they’re clearly designed to be seen next to each other, much like Earth -32- and -33-. You’ll see what I mean on Friday – unless you support ATC on Patreon, in which case you already know what I’m talking about! :D
This page veers away from the original layouts a little bit – the scripted panel two was a shot of West looking antsy with the jump sticks. During rendering I decided that the line was a better fit for Xand, and changing the shot from the bridge to the cargo bay made for a much stronger composition. It works thematically as well as visually, as every cast member aboard the Daedalus gets their own panel and they’re all very much doing what they do.
I’m writing the post for this page on Sunday the 16th. With any luck by the time the page is scheduled to go up the plumbing issues I talked about previously will have been resolved. One of the quirks of doing this kind of writing in advance – my “tomorrow” won’t show up in metadata until the final page! A page you can read right now if you support ATC on Patreon!
Friday – DROP!
