Pipeline #1008: “Lake of Fire”

I’m bullish on this book.  Incredibly bullish.  It’s a great first issue, filled with lots of the things I love about comics.  Read my full 1100 word review of “Lake of Fire” at ComicBook.com right now.

And, in the biggest sneak surprise of the year, it’s a perfect book for the French album format.  In fact, the whole thing is done in that style.  It’s a great package.

Warning: There are pages with lots of ornate dialogue.  That’s OK; this is a period book, and it all is in service to the characters.

I even started to work on a little piece of fan art for the book.  It needs some fixing up, and there’s some devil-in-the-details type stuff that’s bound to trip me up, but I look forward to inking this one.  Maybe even coloring it.

    Picked up Lake of Fire last night on your recommendation. And absolutely loved it. Thanks for the recommendation and I like the new website. Please keep up the great work.

      Thanks, Brian! That’s wonderful to hear. I always am a little nervous that I’m the only person who might like something. 😉 And thanks for the kind words on the website. I’m going to keep going as long as I can stand it! =)

    I’m just happy with any website where the comments actually work!

    BTW – I think the colours “serve” the artwork, not “sever” it.
