Hey fellas!  I figured I'd chime in about the stylistic fiddling going on with today's comic in case anyone was worried or curious.

If you have a good eye, you've probably noticed that the inks don't always stay consistent from comic to comic (fountain pen, crow quill, there's some brush pen here).  I don't care too much about the visual consistency of Johnny Wander -- as the name implies, this place was made to be a sandbox for Ananth and myself.

I'm trying to teach myself how to ink with a brush right now and it is haaard!  So I'm working with it as much as possible so it looks like I know what I'm doing maybe.  Also it might give me some indie comic street cred.  The change isn't permanent, if you were worried.  I might work like this for a few comics though.

REALLY SERIOUSLY, if you have any suggestions on how to do this better, I'm all ears.  Also if you have any questions about art stuff, I will try to explain as much as I can which-I-cannot-promise-will-be-much.

IN THE MEANTIME: HEY ANANTH DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS

IT IS TIME FOR LEFT 4 DEAD

HEY RIGHT SO this is an idea we had jotted down from a while ago. Yuko had this conversation in the car with her Dad on her way from Rochester to New Jersey ... she told me about it later and I couldn't stop laughing. I am laughing about it now ...
