Here’s the third panel of my four-panel strip!
Who knows, I may even get to draw the final panel tomorrow.
Now for an hour of writing.
Following on from yesterday’s post here’s panel number two.
I split the panel in two and put two different scenes in the background to give the impression of movement.
The far leg isn’t great, and we won’t talk about the hands, but it’s looking okay in regards to comic books and storytelling.
Two more panels to go and then I’ll have to think of something else to ink.
Here’s just one of the many reasosn I’m looking forward to getting hold of a copy of the concluding collection of Prophet. The scene below is from one of the previous stories, but it gives you a glimpse of the kind of brain-twisting visuals you can expect.
The artwork throughout this series is continually exceptional as is the storytelling. This is sci-fi in the British and European tradition. A tradition of dark, bonkers ideas that stretch the imagination. Prophet is a rarity in comic books in that it improves with successive readings, but don’t just take my word for it.

Y: The Last Man is a stunning graphic novel that poses the question: would the world be a better place if it was run by women?
Written by Brian K. Vaughan and beautifully drawn by Pia Guerra the story is told across 60 issues that concluded way back in 2008. I read it a while ago but I’ve been prompted to post this after coming across a fine article in The Guardian today written by Sian Cain. Check out the article on The Guardian site and more imnportantly read the book for yourself. Don’t just take my word for it, Stephen King said it was the best graphic novel he’s ever read.
The article is prompted by the search for books that inspire rather than soothe and states that hope can feel intangible – but defiance is practical. What do you think?
