I spent a lot of time (the better part of a year) planning this entire story out, before I started drawing any pages. I really wanted to make sure that I had a plan and that I would be able to see it through to an end that both satisfied and tied everything together. These early pages, although not terribly “pulse-pounding” are all necessary for what’s to come. At least that’s what I tell myself as I lie awake at night second-guessing my decisions.
