Monsters Among Us #1 (Page 22 B&W)

In panels 2 and 3, I referenced the vampire “Nosferatu” from the German movie in 1922.  Here is an image of Nosferatu from the movie.  It is a really cool early vampire movie where the B&W presentation is wonderful!

Monsters Among Us #1 (Page 20 Pencils)

I enjoyed inking Stefano’s wonderful buildings in Panel 1 only to write extensive dialogue that covered them up!  This is a difficulty in writing a comic book……..deciding how much to write and how much beautiful art is to be covered … Continue reading
