Episode 1 - Chapter 1: Due Alarm http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/ Episode 1 - Chapter 1: Due Alarm Issue_001 This is the first comic of the Rip-Off series (obviously). The entire layout of the comic was before I had down a real format that I was trying to adhere to, and when I still didn't have most of the fonts Chris used in Concerned. I didn't add in the chapter name until later for that reason. The funny thing is that this entire comic is a true rip-off in all meaning of the word. The images in each panel were taken from the last comic of Concerned through the use of that handy-dandy screenshot button. The hard part of this comic was the fact that the original frames of his comic all had speech bubbles in them and that each panel was darker than the other in a sort of fade to black way. I had to take two of the panels, adjust the brightness of each so that they matched each other, and then erase the speech bubble and hope that the 2 panels were close enough in brightness that it wasn't noticeable that there was a big hole cut in whichever panel was on top. I think it worked out pretty well, although something could be said for the image quality. I think I'm going to keep it though, just to keep with the whole rip-off theme. Lastly, the loading picture in the final panel was also cut out from one of Chris' comics as well. I was too lazy to turn on Steam, start up the game, and then try to get a screenshot of the loading screen, so I just cut it out from the issue where Frohman and the combine are driving through the tunnel. http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=11205247 11205247 Issue_002 In order to properly give the reader an idea as to what point in time the checkpoint occurred at I had to find a recognizable point in the Concerned time line to reference so the reader would understand when Frohman is when the checkpoint loads. I chose the shovel hitting him in the head part because it was pretty early after he fell off of the citadel tower and more importantly, before he turned off Buddha mode. My plan was to make him confused as to what was going on so that he didn't travel down the same path he did in Concerned (which led to his death) and instead take a different route that involves him not turning off Buddha mode and continuing to live. The final panel was a straight cut out from Issue 201 that I pasted into my comic. I did that mostly because I was lazy and because it was recognizable as the same event. http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=11205273 11205273 Issue_003 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=11205258 11205258 Issue_004 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=12757127 12757127 Issue_005 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=11205281 11205281 Issue_006 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=11205282 11205282 Issue_007 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=11205280 11205280 Issue_008 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=11205308 11205308 Issue_009 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=11540944 11540944 Issue_010 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=12088578 12088578 Issue_011 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=12757151 12757151 Issue_012 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=13127660 13127660 Issue_013 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=13602954 13602954 Issue_014 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=14105654 14105654 Issue_015 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=14638023 14638023 http://aconcernedrip-off.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=15736685 15736685
