    $30,000,000 is an insane amount of money.

    Pretty, pretty bracelets. :) Lovin' it Mark. The splash (pun intended) of LJ leaping is done wonderfully. The painterly style to your color work is inspiring me to try it out myself… maybe I'll do a little fan art one of these nights. :)

    This episode seems more familiar, even down to the dive into the river. I'm comfortable with this scenario, but I'm not surprised by it. This feels like the turnaround on a 12 bar blues.

      While that may be true to a point…. part of the fun of Pulps in general is very much akin to 12 bar blues. We may know the structure… we may know when the beats are about to come… but it's the substance in the lyrics that we pay attention to to enjoy.

        Y'know – I never thought of it that way – but I think you have something there. Whenever I've explained the nature of episodic, series fiction it usually takes me about an hour and quite a few examples. But comparing it to the Blues in this way is a lot faster!

    In case people missed this a week or so back – there is a nice interview with Bob Tinnell and me over at THE PULSE:http://www.comicon.com/ubb/ubbthreads.php?ubb=sho

      Thanks for that link to the interview ! I did miss it and found it a good read and answered a LOT of my questions on why people would want to bring storys/art to Comicmix ;>

    Y'know, the dive into the river reminded me of a Tarzan movie I saw as a kid. And I just noticed the "Graystoke Building." Graystoke = Greystoke?
