Un-men Tuesday (gore warning!).


Ok, you still there? Cool.

So, let's keep this Un-men Tuesday train rolling! Here's another page from Un-men #7. Here we have a double page spread that later became two seperate pages, but retained all the same scenes. If you've been following this blog or Un-men cover artist's Tomer Hanuka, then you know about the cover to this issue that was deemed too hardcore for you. Go over to Tomer's blog to see it. Be warned, it's scarey! But I dug it! ;)

Anyway, this was the scene the cover was based on. Tomer and I didn't see each other's versions while we were working on this, so it was interesting to see what we did similarly and what we did differently. Vertigo decided to leave the scene in the book, so you'll see it in all it's gorey glory if (or when) you pick up the issue.

'Eye' think you did an awesome job on the spread! Get it, eye? Aw man, I kill myself sometimes.

OK, that was lame, but I do like the layout and the way the last panel's perspective is laid out so the figure is popping right out at the reader. Sweet.

Thanks man. Unfortunately, it didn't stay like that. The last panel was turned into a splash. My editor felt it might be more impactful if you turned the page THEN saw the bithing scene. He didn't say it HAD to be that way, but I gave it a try and it ended up working better that way. So, there you go.
