(That's totally a napalm bomb or something, where the point is to set fire to the general vicinity/poor guys in the vicinity in question, but it's good for Yana because it means she won't spend the rest of the comic nursing burst eardrums/CTBI from the shock wave, so...)

And onto business! Y'all, I'm in progress on a Real Live nonfiction biographical comic about a con man during WWII. I posted something about it here about a year ago. I'm really lucky to have the chance and I want to do it justice. And that's where you come in.

If you read the preliminary thumbnailed version I've got so far and give me your thoughts on it/tell me what I need to fix, I'd draw you something of your choice, color, black and white, your characters or whatever -- it's up to you. (Also, you'd have my undying gratitude, but talk is cheap. :P )

(For those of you who have already, you can get a retroactive drawing if you want.)

I never say no to a drawing from you, but it's up to you if you want to make something for WM :)

Also I shouldn't laugh at this page, it's horrible, but man... I'm a terrible person and I laughed. XD

Then I'm equally terrible.

Sure, anything in particular?

I will -- I want to tweak it a little first.

I'm just glad that I'm not the only one who finds this funny.

So, the other comic. It's great! Interesting beginning to draw one in, strong storytelling / characters to keep one interested, and finally a satisfying and emotional ending to wrap things up.

One of my favourite individual pages has to be #5, the one where you cover the German invasion. Really cinematic stuff. I think there maybe could be more of that; short scenes about the war and general situation in the world, just to sort of convey a better feeling of the time that the comic takes place in? I do like how the story flows on as it is, though, and the pacing is spot-on.

The violin scene was really beautiful, by the way.

Thanks very much! I'll mull over and adjust accordingly. If you want a drawing, you know where to find me. :p
