I finished drawing Page One of RaceTraitor a few days ago, but realized I’m not happy with Page Two. At least, not as it’s currently written. After showing the script to a friend, he suggested I expand it from eight page to twelve pages.
As he pointed out, this idea that I have, this universe I’m building, is far too ambitious for eight pages. Even though the comic is only meant to be a brief snippet into the world of this band, its ideas and concepts are too weighty. Leaving it at eight pages will make the comic feel cramped, rushed. I need four pages to simply let it breathe.
So it’s back to rewrites. I’m giving myself a new deadline of May 18 to get it all finished. Let’s hope I can actually pull it off.
