    Here's a 5-page sample I put together that Image was having none of. I personally think it was amazing work by all parties involved and still intend to get the series off the ground one day. So church, your thoughts?

    Pretty pictures. Did you try any other publishers?

    My one suggestion -- not that you've asked -- is to rethink the captions beginning midway down page three. You're breaking one of the biggest rules of comics storytelling (if comics storytelling can be said to have rules): You're narrating to the reader exactly what the reader can already see on the page. When you can help it, words and pictures should be complimentary rather than redundant.

    No, no. I welcome any criticism I can get. It only helps me get better. Yeah, the more I look at that 3rd page I see more and more i'd like to change. I have a bad habit of overexplaining bits; i've been really admiring Morrison's style of minimalism lately. Grant doesn't explain shit, you either catch it or you don't. Thanks for sharing that.
