Finally we're back to the story pages... this one came out pretty much the way I had scripted it, for once.

It's now been almost exactly 1 year since this comic started. I can't believe how the time has flown by.

I don't even want to think about that.

I finished scripting issues 5-7 this week. Issue 7's final pages will come out, if I stay on schedule, at the end of 2018. When I realized that I thought well, I guess I can take a break from writing for a while... lol.

Yeah but .... 9 years ! >_<

After 9 years, LL will be on issue 18. If I get that far.

I have things written completely to #7, and fairly solid ideas for the story arcs of issues 9-12 and 14-16. I am not so sure yet on what I will do for 8 or 13. And beyond that... I have no idea yet. LOL.

The sad part... the way things are going, if we get to LL #18, odds are it will be the highest-numbered superhero comic in the world, including print comics, since the print guys reboot every couple of years now.

I'm guessing there's far more to Homewrecker's armor than just a wrecking ball hand? The distortion effects on the ball suggest some kind of vibration mechanism, the better for which to knock things apart

Homie's wrecking ball is made of Artificial Neutronium. It's this world's equivalent of Adamantium or Intertron. See the 'world' link for details.

Ah yes, Neutronium ... my moms kitchensink is made of it.
It keeps trying to escape down through the floor, the bastard.

I really like the contrasts with the dark shadows in this scene, and the skin texture look fabulous; well done. Outdoor city lighting must be a real challenge, what with the shadows that tall buildings can make.

Yes, the buildings can be an issue. It helped in this scene that Kelly's is next to a used car lot. But also... if necessary, I cheat and turn off the buildings that are off-camera to generate extra sunlight.

I like that idea.

I remember many years ago that the producers of "Law and Order" compared themselves to "NYPD Blue", a competitor at the time. The former was filmed in and around NYC, whereas the latter was mostly filmed in LA. The claim was that NYPD Blue didn't look right because the light is just different between the two cities.

But I, who didn't live in either place, didn't notice such a thing, and certainly even if I had noticed, it probably wouldn't have diminished my enjoyment of each show, because both were story-driven with engaging characters and with actual character development.

Many years later, I do notice the light changes when I fly to different parts of the country. The light really is different.

Not something to be concerned about for a fictional comic set in a fictional East coast city. It's just something I remembered. Useless trivia. :)

Light changes in a single location based on cloud cover, time of day, time of year, etc. Iray sun/sky *can* provide some of that for you (well other than cloud cover) if you want but I usually prefer more fine control over it so I don't use the latitude/longitude/date function.

Oh, and another thought. Why not make Cosmic Comics a "real" entity? I say go for it!
