28 DAYS LATER #1 Page 9

I haven't been regularly posting of late. Apologies. Felt like the blog could do with a bit of a re-vamp so i changed the layout. Had been using the same one for about 3 years, so it was due a change.

Anyway, since #1 of 28 Days Later is out, i guess i can show any pages i want now, so here's page 9. I'm still pretty happy with this one. There was no dialogue of any kind in this page so there was more pressure on me to tell the story in pictures alone. That's always the aim mind; that you can follow the story by just looking at the art, but it's fairly uncommon for a writer to leave the storytelling of a page to an artist and not feel like dialogue is needed to support it. Since there was more attention to the art, i tried to make the panel layout a bit more interesting.

Also, my good friend (and fellow Eclectic Mick) Will Sliney has a comic written by Dave Hendrick in the Zuda Comics competition this month called The Symptoms. Check it out and give it your vote won't ya?

btw,if you get the chance,give the guy who coloured your art a massive pat on the head.
he did an awesome job.
although i would love to see a b/w version of the book.
