I know Ed Brubaker’s disappointed. He thought it would be funnier than this. But we’re way, way off the map. That’s what doing an adventure/crime story as a weekly serial creates–an awful lot of chances to turn and swerve and, in general, fling the original map out the window and just drive.
To belabor the metaphor, Pete took the wheel more than usual with this one, particularly in the last few pages, where the pacing was all him. I swear, sometimes I wonder if that boy’s not darker than we all give him credit for. (Pete, not Galahad.)
Hope you’re still enjoying and passing the word along to your friends. Next week, we’ll be taking a break for Comicon San Diego, but we’ll be showcasing some spectacular pieces of fan art which tickle me–and then we’re back the following week as we move into Act Two of our narrative and meet the Galahad Enterprises support staff. At last, more comedy.
And don’t forget to check in next week to read about some of our big Thrillbent announcements we’re making at San Diego. All I can tell you right now is that we’ve been wanting you to come back more than once a week…and we’re finally ready to give you cause.
