Our cast of characters starts to expand with some new faces joining the race to prevent Deadworld's seemingly inevitable demise. Characters that I've subsequently grown very fond of.
Even though I've finished my scriptwork on this series, artist Dave Kendall is still hard at work on the last couple episodes. Can you hear the screams?
Some freshly-drawn pencils arrived from Dave this morning and - OMG! - I really wish you could see them. (But SPOILERS!) Dave's renowned for his fully-painted finishes, but his breakdowns and full pencils are a joy to behold: full of life, energy and inner dynamism. One scene in particular - between two characters - crackled with tension and meaningful sideways glances (no lettering at this point, but you could just see the emotional transaction taking place), and then: a killer / devastating full character reaction shot -- so full of soul and inner life. I got proper choked up.
And, then, the episode's final panel: some Wrightson level shit.
