  1. Hi John,

    Great start. My favorite scene was when Nomicrus’ ghoul started chewing on the bone in the background. Nice touch of morbid humor. :)

    Looking forward to Chapter 2 on Wednesday. This installment was a solid 14 pages, which I have to assume won’t be the norm… any idea how long each installment will be?

    John

  2. Hey, John,

    Glad you’re digging the first chapter.

    I just finished putting the final touches on Chapter 5. Here are the page
    counts so far:

    Ch 2 – 12 pages
    Ch 3 – 16 pages
    Ch4 – 14 pages
    Ch5 – 14 pages

    These original scenes were much shorter when laid out on traditional (portrait-style) pages. But when I “chop up” the pages and create landscape-style layouts (for computer screen viewing) the scenes tend to lengthen–less panels per horizontal page. Sometimes there will only be one or two images per “page.” So turning all these portrait layouts to
    landscape layouts creates more screens that pages.

    The best is yet to come…

    Cheers,
    John
