Black Vatican #12

Artist's comments:
In this comic, I am especially happy with the first frame. The blurring I put on the back BCPs gave a solid feeling of atmospheric perspective, which is good because I wasn't sure how to accomplish that look with just the solid colors that I use to shade the characters. The last frame in this comic was tossed in well after the comic script was completed. Linus and I had talked about dividing the comic into chapters, and this comic being the last in the introductory series seemed the best place. We talked over a few ideas, and I ended up putting together a kind of 2001 door-of-light cliffhanger. It took some doing; the original frame had a close up of Flynn with the light in his face, but I had some trouble getting it to look just right. Luckily, Linus had the solution, and we ended up using a Neo from the second Matrix look, which I'm very pleased with.

The next few comics will be current events and cover art as we prep for Chapter 1, and we have just recorded a special Pod Cast of the Pope and I discussing how far we've come. In the meantime I want to know what you guys thought of chapter 0...
Comments Go Go Go!

Reverend's Comments:
Chapter 0 has been a growth experience. Like Flynn's hair, the comic is taking on a life of its own...

As for the podcast, I am afraid of what will make it into the final cut. Our conversation ranged from how the comic gets made to cross-dressing in Islam to UFC fighting... I hope Flynn is judicious with his editing.

no way! i want the full out un-abashed version of the Pod Cast. It's really punky to find out that there will be a pod cast and that there will be heavy or "judicial" editing of said pod case before we have a chance to hear it.
*pouts*

Believe me, you don't want to hear all of it. It is quite long, and it's largely just giggling and drunken ranting. Rest assured, my innate vanity will see to it that the very best bits are posted.

It's true. The complete recording runs a daunting 2 hours and 45 minutes, and includes things like 20 solid minutes of the Pope and I pondering the finer points of swamp ass and Burger King commercials...

The pod cast will still be a very Amature Hour glimpse into our fragile psyches (for those of you brave enough to venture).

So, given what we know about His Sinfulness, that means our ears, feet, and tongues are still flesh and blood, right?

The ears would have been the orifice that I would imagine HSBP would keep as flesh and blood. ;)
