SO PURE IT FLOATS...

SO PURE IT FLOATS...

Comics have become pretty flashy these days...you can read them digitally on your ipad, kindle, phone, etc. The printed pages are slick, the colors are alive and the packaging is top grade. There’s movies, tv shows, toys, and numerous other ways to engage with the product. It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that at the heart of all this, it’s still comes down to lines of black ink on plain old white paper. Here’s a page of SCALPED 56 (on sale 2/29) that shows exactly what I’m talking about...see the defiant look on Dash’s face in panel 2, the light/shadow on Red Crow’s face in panel 3, the uneven lines of the bricks, the rust spots on the jailhouse doors...there’s a lot of life in these simple drawings. Thanks for reading. peace and hair grease, will dennis
