Comic is Here
For some reason, Lois remembers things in the style of a 1930's comic book.
This was probably the biggest, most difficult, and most complicated comic I've ever drawn in my life! Copying Shuster's art style was both fun and frustrating, and a very horizon-broadening experience. I feel like I've grown a bit as an artist.
I wanted to do something special in honor of passover starting tonight. This comic was completed at exactly 11:59 last night, and by then, I was so punch-drunk tired that I was ready to weep tears of joy. My original plan was to pace out the seder storyline to keep up with the passover season, to keep it timely, but then I realized that even if I somehow managed to write, draw, and post one comic a day, it just wouldn't quite work out right. So, instead, I'm just going to give in to the effects of "comic book time" and let the story take as long as it needs to.
Yes, the comics are connected, but if I do this right, then you won't have to read any of the others to understand any given one (although it might give a little bonus); they should be able to stand individually and alone, so you could even share a random one with a friend if you like.
Oh, that reminds me; I'm still on a quest for a better title for these things: "QotC's fan-comic", while accurate, isn't exactly catchy. I've been toying with:
1. Metropolis, DE
(see, because this Metropolis is in Delaware; but I don't know how important that'll end up being, and emphasizing a real state might imply "gritty realism", which is so not the tone I want.
2. Lane and Kent
(Might imply emphasis on the investigations; not sure yet how much of that they'll even do)
3. Daily Planet Funny Pages
(Might be construed as an in-universe comic that the Planet prints for its readers)
4. Titles are Hard, You Guys
(Again, it's true, but not catchy)
Well, what do you guys think? I'm open to ideas.
