Here we are again, my friends. Tuesday’s page is the last one in Chapter 1 so get ready to hold onto your hats because we’re fixin’ to blow them into outer space.
My Bonus Lunch blogs are going to suffer the next few weeks as I’m in a pretty writing heavy class right now. Don’t take it the wrong way though Lunchskateers, I still love you, I just want a better job so I can afford to sleep on a bed where the bed frame isn’t held up by books on one side. I’m also fixing to drop a huge amount of stuff into the member’s area after Chapter 1, so that is taking up some time. You don’t want excuses though do you? Too bad.
This week we saw the fish vampires take McCarver in their bubble. The sound effect GLOOMPSH is one of the best ones we’ve ever used. We did a good amount of underwater research about bubble noises, and that is the best approximation of an aquanetic containment field detaching from a submarine. GLOOMP would have been ok, but adding the SH afterwards is what is telling you that it is detaching. GLOOMP is just someone entering an aquanetic containment field, GLOOMPSH is it detaching from something.
But the real action happens at the bottom of the page. Doc wakes up to face his kidnapper, who could it be? If you think you know shot it into the comment section. That way if you’re right you can eternally lord this over everyone you meet, that you figured out the bad guy in Pitch Black Day was…
Oh crap, that is a .gif of how Doc escapes! Well, spoiler alert I guess. Doc is a talented bassist! That wasn’t going to come out until the next DARDEVILS book where they meet the Harlem Globetrotters.
Next week on the Lunch I’m hoping to get some Danilo art from the past. That’ll be fun. He’s an exceptional artist, and he really brings the DAREDEVILS to life. I’m not going to spoil what the theme is, you’ll have to wait.
Tuesday’s page is a super collaboration between Fonografiks and Danilo. The lettering is marvelous on the final page, it is exactly what it needed to through it over the top. I’ll give you a hint, it is a splash page! Danilo’s splashes in the past have been legendary. Sedna, the Whale, the Fish vamps approaching the Custer. This page stands with them all. But when it drops, will it answer more questions than it creates? No. What would be the fun in that?
I’m also hard at work on our top secret ultra classified project that will run in between chapters 1 and 2. We can tell you now that the break in between chapters will be 5 weeks long, but we will have great content each of those weeks. In reality is it less of a break and more of a cutting edge voyage into what is possible with webcomics. It will change your entire emotional state and you will come out the other end a better person than anyone you know.
That’s the Lunch for 6/16
To the Future,
