Thanks for the kind words, man! I love Zenith, so I take that as a huge compliment. V for Vendetta and Alan Davis’ black and white Captain Britain were also in my head too when I drew this.
I didnae colour the sequential page, that was Gavin Boyle. Gav does his own comics, Rapid Gazzer and Escape from Coatbridge. He’s way better wie digital colouring than me. I draw everything old school. I taught myself to ink on this too, so that hopefully improves as the story progresses. I coloured the cover, so your tips will come in very handy and I’ll tell Gav too.
The number of panels per page generally increases at moments of tension, so it’s cool you picked up on that. Dutch tilts come straight from reading How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way as a teenager! I also love film noir (which is pretty obvious later on, I guess).
Here’s some more pages, a pin-up for Rapid Gazzer and a page fae Tales From The Garngad, a work in progress…
