The beginning of the end!
Man, I love nine-panel grid layouts. It’s pure, unadulterated sequential art, in my opinion. The rigid panel structure creates a rhythm to the storytelling that is undeniably classic, and considering how heavily Deep Dive Daredevils is influenced by the Golden Age, I’m surprised that it took us this long to utilize it. Here though, with all the balls in the air heading into Chapter 4, it was a no-brainer; the perfect opportunity to pay homage to old-school comics, and at the same time, pack a ton of plot into a page.
Speaking of the plot, as the Captain lamented, WHERE THE HELL IS JOE?! Well, be here NEXT WEEK when that very question is answered as Joe and Cup embark on a mind-blowing MYSTICAL JOURNEY! Trust me, Daredevilers; you DO NOT want to miss this. Danilo goes above and beyond, and delivers one of the most stunningly beautiful pages yet, so make sure to RSS, Like, or Follow.
For those keeping score at home Chapter 4 will run for 12 weeks of uninterrupted good times, and I, for one, am as excited as hell. It’s all been building towards this and I can’t wait for you guys to see how Secret of the Beaufort Sea ends! And, what comes after…
This just in, every time you vote for the Daredevils at topwebcomics.com an angel gets its wings (that’s what I heard, at least)! And, as always, make sure to stop by our blog every Sunday to check out the Bonus Lunch/Evin’s slow descent into madness.
Anyways, till next week!
