DANGER ACE PAGE 10, THE ONE WHERE WE BLOW UP A MONKEY
Jerry really outdid himself on this one. Just look at panel 2 and tell me it's not one of the most beautiful drawings you've ever seen.
It occurred to me this morning that I never did a Danger Ace wrap up post, and that's probably because I don't like thinking about it as being over.
Most of you probably already know this, but we didn't win Small Press Idol. We came in 5th place (out of 6) and I honestly thought we would have done a little better. But we've been able to generate a lot of "after show" buzz, which is cool, and I think everyone that pre-ordered a copy of the zero issue will be pretty happy. Everyone in Team Danger Ace will walk away from it with a really nice showpiece, and that's not bad at all.
Out of all the stuff I've worked on and developed, Danger Ace is probably my favorite and I really hope I find somewhere to continue it. I love the characters and the landscape we've built, and I'd be pretty upset if we lose it.
I was looking back over the script and the outline for the 12-pager last night, and I realized just how quick the story is. No matter the page count, I always try and give readers a lot, as I myself feel cheated by comics that don't take more than a few minutes to read. But this one, man, it truck, and while I don't think it's a bad thing, I was just surprised.
Thanks again to everyone that bought a copy, voted for us, emailed us, etc... I enjoyed hearing your comments and suggestions and the whole experience was made easier just knowing you were behind us all the way.
