UH-OH! Look out John Henry, that’s a Pinkerton your messing with, or something there of equivalent to. Erin, love how you make JHH slink into the back seat before the guard sees him, and how he acts annoyed that they have stopped. I’m basically watch an animated movie here. Great stuff.
Question. How hard is it to do an on line comic?
Thanks so much!
Re: your question though that’s kind of huge. Define “hard”, I guess? It all depends on your level of ability and the level of intricacy in what you’re looking to do, how often it updates, what kind of comic it is, your web savvy, etc.. There are too many factors for an easy answer.
No Erin, you answered my question just fine. Basically it’s tough to do, especially if your “web savvy” is poor (like mine), and you don’t have outside financial stability to fall back on when times get tough. I appreciate your thoughts on this and, as always, I wish you much continued susses with NTO.
Just look like one of the passengers, Hunter–after all, if you bought a ticket, you want to ride!
Erin, I do have 2 questions: can’t he disguise his face? or does he find it beneath himself to do so?(of course, you don’t have to answer, I am just curious!)
I guess I’m not exactly tipping my hand if I confirm he just doesn’t, if you’ll pardon the expression, particularly give a shit.
Shaving his beard might make him recognized less, but who could bring themselves to damage such pristine majesty as that beard? heh
Vane, you cheeky undead devil.
I am really pleased about the acuracy in your drawings. It’s clear that you have done a lot of research. Even little details are shown correct, for example the truck of the coach, which is a typical US-truck.
Thanks so much! I really appreciate the positive feedback; usually I’m getting busted for inaccuracies.
To G Dupons: I also love the accuracy. My youngest son and I did some Google searching on telegraph keys, for instance, and were delighted to find one very close to the one used several pages ago. And it also did not surprise us that, after looking at photos of literally over a hundred antique keys, the most aesthetic one we had seen was the one like in NTO.
I really can’t overstate how excited I always am when you comment; you really lavish an unbelievable amount of consideration on my comic and I’m super appreciative.
I love the reflections in the windows in this page. And the furtive body language in the center panel. And the car number, 221, reminds me of the famous Baker Street address… Coincidence?
So, Erin, the question on my mind the last few weeks has been whether you have the whole story mapped out? And even if so, do the characters ever seem to get ideas of their own, like other writers experience?
It is indeed written in its entirety. I guess characters largely dictacted certain turns when I scripted it in the first place; occasionally now I make some really minor adjustments to things that don’t seem quite plumb with how characters turned out in the end (my early ideas were pretty different from what I ended up with and some later scenes were written earlier and have some janky behavior).
I didn’t think Catherine Tate had made it out of the UK. Or is “Russet Lodge” a coincidence? http://youtu.be/bUhLIjlTNSk
