FUBAR: Life Preservers with Mario Wytch, Amy Corbin and Jeff McComsey
With the exception of one pesky "radio" balloon on the final page, I've just finished lettering the "Life Preservers" story for the full version of FUBAR, volume 2, and I thought I'd show a preview of it here. The full story clocks in at 11 pages in length, and one of the things I'm most happy about (though you can't tell it looking at the first two pages...) is that I don't, for once, overcrowd the pages with huge blocks of text...in many cases, the art tells the story. I'm really happy with how it all turned out!
Mario Wytch is responsible for the pencils and inks, with an inking assist a bit later in the story from Amy Corbin. Jeff McComsey came in to add greyscales and round the pages out into a complete product. This story is set to see print this December - in fact, the book will be listed in October's edition of Previews magazine, so I should be able to pass along the order code sometime within the next few weeks. And there will be signings. Oh yes, there will be signings.
Now I've gotta see where I put that Comicraft lettering guide. Damn radio balloons.
