Debt of Honor
Debt of Honor
Time for a change of pace. Recent events have made me realize that I rely rather heavily on dialogue to move my stories along, and I wondered if I was capable of telling a story without spoken parts. This in turn begged the question: could I tell a story without any character input at all, using third-person observations only? Not long after this query came the manic desire to do this story as a comic. And so, after approximately 100 hours of drawing, inking, coloring, and banging my head into the wall in periodic bouts of frustration, here is the end result.
I'm not going to try to summarize the plot, since it is more of a random interlude than a coherent sequence of events and interactions. One of the purposes of this comic was to raise more questions than it answered, while at the same time fleshing out a character that seldom gets solo screen time. I'll ask you to forgive the size of the comic, and the fact that at times the layout and borders are cheap and lazy. I was experimenting here, not trying for a polished piece.
I have tried to answer several of the more obvious questions at the end in a special section designed to ward off most pimento-loaf attacks, but please let me know what you think of the finished product. Was it a roaring success? A dismal failure? An acceptable foray into the webcomic realm? Please tell me. I must know.
