I frickin’ LOVE this page.

As soon as Danilo turned in the first pencils, I knew it was going to be one of my favorites from Chapter 3, and the funny thing is, the way it turned out is nowhere near how it was described in the script. The script suggested a basic panel-to-panel layout with the whale appearing at the top of the page, but in his infinite wisdom Danilo opted for a collage layout and saved the money shot of the whale for the bottom of the page.

And, man what a shot of the whale it is! It’s glowing, soulless eye and battle-scared jaws just bring the point home once again that this monster is one tough, terrifying customer – more than a match for Custer and Crew.

Not to mention, it’s SWALLOWED JOE and CUP WHOLE! Now, some of our ever-appreciated commenters have been comparing Joe’s predicament to Jonah (from the Bible story) or Pinocchio – and rightfully so. However, once you guys see NEXT WEEK’S page all those comparisons will be BLOWN out of the WATER. You ain’t never seen the inside of whale as CRAZY as this!

What has Joe seen that’s left him in AWE? What is up with the bright lights and psychedelic colors? Be here NEXT WEEK when we explore the BELLY of the BEAST! Make sure to RSS, Like, or Follow unless you hate adventure and discovery…
