As I mentioned two weeks ago, I'm reviving one of my old characters for Jonathan Green's new book, You Are the Hero: A History of Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks. He contacted me a while ago regarding bringing back a 1980s character of mine, Derek the Troll, and I'm drawing the strip this weekend.
Above is a snapshot of the first panel from the page in rough pencil stage. When I'm lettering my own strips I tend to rough the page out first, do the lettering, then proceed with tightening/correcting up any pencils if necessary and finally inking the strip.
I'll show part of the completed strip here on Monday.
