'Underworld' Preview

Not to be confused with the crappy movie of the same name, this is the first, unlettered page of a short comic that will be published in the fall issue of Something Wicked (a FutureQuake publication). Keith Burns did the art. I can go on lauding his work, but for the sake of brevity all I'll say is that his cityscape rendering in the third and fourth panels is excellent (and exactly what I had in mind).

And, just to note, the birdcage was a detail I really enjoyed--a homage to one of my favorite films, Melville's Le Samourai. It was in the original script, but seeing it on the page is a different experience.

The story is intriguing...I am intersted to hear more. Your artist is brillant, do you story board your ideas to him? You two should do very well together!
