I finally contacted a writer friend, Reggie Carlisle, to help me format this story. I knew what I wanted to say and where the story was going but I wasn’t sure how to illustrate the middle sections of it and knew that he could help with this.
He, being a big fan of flash fiction, believed that we could more effectively tell my story in a more condensed format. He took my 25-30 page comic and condensed it down into 4 pages. Creating 4 perfect comic pages deemed harder than I’d originally thought. After inking, scanning, editing, formatting, and adding in the text, we achieved the look we were going for.
The comic below is the final version of this story.
