Legionnaire Alert! an actual update.

Well Loyal Legionnaires, here it is. I do again apologize for three weeks between updates. But life just can't be helped. With KiGor, the day job, this damned winter, and all I just can't seem to get enough hours in the day.
Anyway, here is an almost totally digital strip. It still has some bugs in it. Line thickness is one of the other things I didn't mention in the previous post. With all that zooming in and out, it is so easy to lose your vision of line thickness. Even with a second viewing window open, you photoshop users will know what I mean, it is tough.
Also if you notice there is another experiment going on in this long panel. Instead of breaking it all up into three panels to show the passing of time, I took extra care to lay the panel out in a progression of people and time. This is another advantage to using photoshop to composite the piece. I get to play around with placing the actors where they will do the most good.
So I hope the experiment worked. The dialog progress's from left to right with the actions of the people and the time of the panel's duration.
Anyway enough explaining, just enjoy yet another cliffhanger leading to the last cliffhanger of the chapter. Which is coming soon.....I hope.


  1. Beautifully done, pal. What a cliff-hanger!

  2. WOW! An update! And, what an update!

    YOU KILLED HIM! The witnesses say so, the title say so and the blood...

    I'm pick at you to chip off the ice, honest.

    I prefer the old ways you used to to the strip, but, if it is easier, or better for you, then no problem. Computers are great tools, but, you lose something I think, by not doing it by hand. I really hate computers.

    As for the cold, Spring is coming very soon, really! (fingers crossed)

  3. Looks great Tom. Excited to see using the digital inks. Been toying with that myself.
