Episode 1 - Chapter 3: No Life

This was the first comic that I hadn't really planned out in advance. Usually I would write a bunch of comics quickly, and then tweak them over time based on what was going on, and any last minute changes I thought of. This time, I wrote the comic on a Monday, and edited it for a few days before letting it sit, re-reading it later, and making some more changes. I'm not sure if it has really made much of a difference, but it's easier to make them this way, so I think I'll stick with this producing method. The lack of light in the tunnels here is both a good thing, and a bad thing. Good, because I don't have to worry about posing a lot and bad, because there isn't really much for the reader to look at and understand what is going on. Usually I would say that without seeing the characters you miss half the action, but that doesn't happen much in my comics because I don't use their bodies enough. It's a problem I'm working on. I added the reference to Frohman being a rebel expert just because I needed something for the combine soldiers to talk about while waiting for Frohman to blow himself up. His final line in the last panel I had ripped off from a Foxtrot comic where Peter tries to slide over the hood of his car Dukes of Hazard style. I just changed the line "Molten... shrapnel... in... groin...." from the original "Underwear... snagged... on... windshield wiper...." I'm not sure why I added the "Molten" part in there though. It could be something that would be funnier if left out. Lighting in the 5th panel was pretty easy. I just put a big yellow colored light on the ground, and then a yellow colored lamp next to it facing the Combine Soldiers. I kind of like how the lights worked out. Oh, and that big yellow blur over the combine soldiers' heads is supposed to be a car that was blown over their heads by the grenade. Usually grenades don't have that kind of force, but I needed to find a way to get that car pinned against the door.

If you have to ask if it's wrong to enjoy the pain of others, you're in the wrong line of work Mr. Combine Soldier.
