Ben sent me the draft of our first chapter for “Voyages” (still just a working title), and we’ve got a 21 page story to kick off this project. I’m really excited about it — I love the characters Ben has come up with and the tone he’s striking. Fantasy has a tendency to take itself (far) too seriously [Editor’s note: Chris’s opinions are his own and do not reflect the opinions of Voyager Comics, which are complex and subtle] [Not the editor’s note — Ben, glad to see you interjecting ideas into my posts], and I like how we’re going to be playing around with cliches and archetypes and having a lot of fun.
With his script in mind, I did a quick sketch of some monsters catching Tomas, the Franciscan monk.
The rest of the evening I spent inking page 18 of “The Year of the Dragon. Just have to get to page 20 so we can launch it, but all the details on this page meant I worked on it for 3 hours and finished 3 panels. Normally I can ink a whole page in that time, but hey, it’s looking great.
