Well, since my “Damania Retroactive” webcomic mini series finished recently, I thought that I’d do my usual thing of showing off the “work in progress” line art I scanned whilst making it (and apologies for the disruption to the scheduling of my “1990s films” review series that this post has caused).
Since this webcomic mini series was vaguely topical (I make these comics quite far in advance, so the time that the characters travel back to was actually the time I was making it), there were a surprising number of changes between the dialogue in the line art and in the finished comics.
This was mostly because I was influenced by events in the news at the time, or because I worried that parts of the dialogue might not sound emphatic enough or might sound too emphatic etc.. I also occasionally ended up rewriting parts of the dialogue and altering the characters’ expressions slightly too. Likewise, there were some fairly major changes to the second comic (even including changing the title of this comic from “Opinion” to “Time Troll” in the finished comic too).
As usual, you can click on each piece of line art to see a larger version of it.
