XII 98: calm down

this one just about made it onto the page. Note the tell-tale slump in effort after the second panel.

Ever have a snippet of imagery, as though you’re dreaming film trailers? I get it all the time. Tiny snippets of casual, charming conversation, eyes and dark hair, nerd revenge fantasies, a weaponised furious sky, grotesque mutation. If I’d been more skilled behind a lens I might have made a go at putting out unanchored shorts.
I really like the comic format, even if that narrative clarity never lasts more than six panels, or a track. (see also: no grasp of layout, pacing, lettering etc.). That dream-clarity to things can’t be captured, but I love trying.
