That arrow to the throat serves him right. It's just another fine example as to why you never side with the bad guys. :D

Nice to see it moving. Wonderful hair and more evidence of not counting chickens (... before hatched, etc :) )

I think I've said before how much I love your work, how excited I am to see you crafting this story before our eyes, etc., etc. But I hope I can offer one smidge of constructive criticism: the lettering is terrible. I hate doing lettering myself (I suck at it, frankly) and never thought much about it in the years of comics reading I've done. But it's one of those things where you ONLY notice it when it's done poorly. The fonts you've chosen are weak. Your choice of the dark, transparent, outline-less balloons, boxes and bubbles just doesn't work (though I like it in concept as it doesn't obscure much of the art). The hand-drawn sound effects look, well, hand-drawn. And, finally, your ongoing lack of punctuation or italics or boldface robs your script of a lot of its impact. Everything on the page, from the art itself to the panel layouts, to the words - even the shapes of the words - are part of the storytelling. And with art as AMAZING as yours, with characters as rich and compelling, your graphic novel deserves lettering that lives up to all of the other components.

The constructive part: a recommendation, and something that helped me a lot, is the DC Comics Guide to Coloring and Lettering Comics. Todd Klein offers a lot of great info about hand-drawn and digital lettering (I used Photoshop and Comic Life, myself). Or just pick up your favorite comics and study the way it's done there. There's obviously not just one way to do it, but you might find some techniques that will fit your work and make it stronger.

Anyway, enough of the lecture. Like I said, I'm loving this story and I hope you take no offense to some honest feedback from a fan.

The entire reason that we are posting the progress of the first part of this story is to get some feedback and see how well it goes over, so for us to take offense at feedback - especially constructive feedback - would be, well, retarded. The pages posted are by no means the finished product that will hopefully go to the printer, and comments and suggestions like yours are what we are looking for to help us improve the product. Glen and I have never tackled a project like this before - we're just a couple of guys who wrote what we think is such a cool story that we want to get it out there for others to experience and enjoy. We want it to be the best that we can make it, so honest criticism is welcome.

I actually managed to find a free pdf download of the DC Comics Guide to Coloring and Lettering Comics, and it appears to be an awesome guide. Honestly, I haven't been completely happy with the lettering myself, so I appreciate you pointing us to this guide. Thanks for being a true fan.

My great pleasure! Two questions. One: who's the attacker/would-be rapist here who's NOT Gannelon? And two: are you still reachable at your hotmail account?

That would be the Lord Defiler who Gannelon inherits the position from. My hotmail account was hacked, so my new email is arnecooper@yahoo.com
