I think that pretty well sums up this page, and all the credit for that beauty should rightfully go to Smilton When we wrote the script for this page the description of panel two was simply that the station was now “glowing with blue light and coursing with power as Doc and Sagulo marvel at it in the foreground.” Well, as you can see, Smilton took that description and made it into an illustration that not only executes our plot perfectly, but also demands that the reader sit back and just enjoy it’s aesthetic beauty (for lack of a better word) for a while. Basically, he made it into art.
In fact, the dialogue on this page is actually inspired by my first reaction when it hit my inbox many moons ago. I literally thought, “I never imagined it would be so beautiful.” And, if I had that reaction just looking at a two-dimensional drawing then how much more impressive must it be for the characters who are actually in that space (well, kinda). So, I decided what the Hell? Let’s put that thought into the mouths of the characters.
Be here NEXT WEEK for another instant-classic DDD SPLASH page! Will Joe’s first kiss be a TRIUMPH or a DISASTER? Find out just a few days after Valentine’s Day when we post the most ROMANTIC page in Deep Dive Daredevils history!
Welp, I am finally feeling like a human being again, and many thanks for cutting me some slack on the blog last week. Believe me, when you have a splitting headache the last thing you want to do is write 300 words and try to be interesting.
In other news, the full print run of Deep Dive Daredevils No. 1 is scheduled to arrive any day now. I am EXITE.
Anyways, till next week!
