The second first issue of the First Issue Project is done and online! Side Passage 1 was assembled from panels taken from 5 previous (incomplete) versions of itself, with some newly drawn panels to connect the different ideas. It’s a frankencomic. The styles vary, panels don’t always fit, there are inconsistencies in the characters’ looks and costumes. Still: I told a story! That’s what I’m going for here. Maybe one day I’ll want to publish Side Passage, at which point I’ll clean it up a little.
Issues 2-4 will also be shambling frankencomics, all assembled from early ideas and versions of issue one. Yeah. I redrew the first issue so many times I’m making 4 comics out of it. Issue 5 will be the original issue 2 almost panel for panel. That comic is still one of my favorite single issues I’ve ever drawn. And then, issue 6! The first ALL NEW Side Passage comic in 4 years! In which we meet…

Anyway, this took so long because I was doing it intermittently, on breaks from this other project that I’ve been struggling with. Once that monster is punched in the face the comics will be flowing like Del.
