Hey everyone,

Here's some info on the issue, along with Doug's amazing cover.

Best,

Man, I like the panel layout and storytelling on this page. Pretty darn nice. When you get the idea of what is going on without dialog, your job as a true artist is done.

Kudos!

Thanks Patrick. I try to make it so that the dialogue is never really needed. Doesn't always work, but I try :-)

Yeah, I get that dialog is important and it is, but like the great silent movies, I really respect when artist take some actual pride in storytelling. For my money, it is a lost art. Very few, you included, seem to be clinging to the beauty of telling a clear, entertaining and plausible story through visuals.

Thanks man. I'm truly flattered. :-)
