Strip 9: Just Another Day
I'm quite happy with the cityscapes in this strip. There's already much more depth and complexity here than we had in, say, strip one. Which is good, because the next few pages are light on text, so the visuals will have to be able to stand on their own.
I really wanted panel four to be an homage to the famous cover shot from The Dark Knight Returns, with Dy-Gar jumping from the stadium while striking Batman's pose. For some reason, the others didn't go for it. Gar-man will just have to live on in my storyboards, I suppose.
