It's finished! The comic! Really!

About Angel: the Series tribute

Previous Entry It's finished! The comic! Really! Jun. 5th, 2005 @ 03:21 am Next Entry
That is, not quite... this is not yet the final, polished version, quite obviously. But since I won't have time to do any polishing for the time, for now I'm posting it to LJ as it is. I'm also re-posting all the previous pages in this entry. Page- and file sizes vary wildly but they should all load reasonably fast.

Later, when I archive it, I will re-do parts of the lettering, fix a few details, and scan all the pages at the same resolution. But for now, here it is in all its six-page glory:

"Smile Time: The Comic" *
*(... until the day I come up with a real title.)
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Smile Time
Summary: "Angel wants to blow off steam. Things don't go quite as expected." Spike&Angel gen, because there can never be enough of that.




Disclaimer: The artwork is mine, characters and universe aren't, no money is being made off this. Thanks to mousehounde for betaing, and to doyle_sb4 for looking over the script and for coming up with this awesome challenge in the first place. Much thanks to Sabine A. for a most productive brainstorming session.

Wow. That was fantastic. Great snark between those two, and I love the details you drew, such as Angel wringing out his arm.

Thank you!

Ah yes, I love the hand-wringing scene, too. Drawing all these little details was lots of fun.

Kitten poker! Dude, you rock. Best line: "I feel like a sponge." And Spike just carries on as though he'd never said a word. Perfect.

Fantastic, Funny, and yes, adorable. Followed my nose! Haha. I wonder if you could sell this to Dark Horse? It's quite extraordinary.

Thanks muchly. Dark Horse... mmh... ;o) probably not feasible, but the thought has crossed my mind once or twice (I shoved it away really fast because I wanted this to be fun and not go anywhere near work...)

You're very welcome. :o) And thanks for all your frequent commenting and pimping. Knowing that people were following it and waiting for updates, that was a nice motivational push.

Man, I can't believe that I've been at it since October. Eeek.

Yeah, really not his week, was it. What is it about wanting to torture the characters you love best? ;)
