If you all go back to last month’s installment, you’ll note that the top panel here is a cinematic transition from the end of the last comic – basically a literal change of focus to reflect a storytelling change of perspective, from Tarkas to Carter. I’m also playing around more with panel composition a bit more than in a while. It’s most evident in that lower-left panel where there are a couple of different perspectives going on, as well as an (attempted) manga/Jack Kirby vibe.
Also, if anyone has left any comments recently, I’ve only recently noticed that something is wrong in the WordPress admin and I’m unable to view or approve any comments. In fact I can’t do anything except upload new comics. Which is in and of itself positive, right? If anyone would like to leave a comment, please feel free to do so on the Patreon post, as all comics are dually posted there (and early for patrons).
Additionally, HIGHJUMP gets started next week. I’m both excited and nervous. A Princess of Mars comes with some built-in interest, but HIGHJUMP is a stone-cold start and my baby. If you’re interested at all, please go ahead and follow the site on Tumblr here. Posting frequency, like here, depends solely on Patreon support levels, currently bimonthly.
Thank you for your time and I hope you’re enjoying the comics!
