Red’s crazy dreams. The original art on this page was part of the same page where I revamped the second panel on page 2. It’s much smaller than it’s printed at, even. The original drawing is maybe four square inches at most. We cut down the last page from several panels, to just this one. It has more impact, and more importantly saved valuable time.
I recently stumbled on a great little site called Just the First Frame. It, as the name suggests, has a page filled with the first frame from several webcomics from around the internet. The trick is to get hooked from the comic by, you guessed it, just the first panel. I must say, it’s a fantastic way to find something new to read in the ever changing world that is the web comic. There’s even a great feature that let’s you hide comics that you’d rather not see on the front page. it’s defiantly something to check out on a daily basis as different comics update on different schedules!
Oh, and Flying Fortress is now on the site, too!
