PREVIEW: Possum #5 page 1


The Possum, Issue #1 page 5


Here’s a peek at the first page of The Possum, issue #5 which is scheduled to go to the printers at the end of May, and should be ready to purchase around the middle of July!  Let me know what you think.  I find I struggle when it comes to laying down the grey tones.  I always flop back and forth from thinking they’re too contrasty, to too muddy.


Update:  I’ve adjusted some of the tones to make this page lighter since I first posted it.  Comparing it to pages from issue #4, I realized that my new monitor is a lot lighter than what the pages will come out printed as, so I made some adjustments.  That’s the thing I find tricky with tones, because each comic has been a bit of a surprise so far when I see it in print because usually the grey tones come out darker or lighter than I expect.  One day I’ll get it right.

    I especially like the Robot walk-cycle, and the sliver panel 7. Where’s pages 2-24?

    I was just gonna comment on the same things Mike did!

    The lumbering, methodical suspense of the robot is counterbalanced nicely with Possum’s panic attack.

    But really Blair. Wouldn’t it have been more merciful to have the robot simply squash the little old man? Now the poor geezer is gonna suffer broken bones and blunt trauma!! You are a sadistic little man….. >:(

    Mike: I think I lost them.

    Javier: More merciful: yes. More funny: no. Funny wins!
