I chatted with Darren recently, and in between peppering him with additional notes for the next issue, he managed to get a word in and tell me he expects to have a first draft of most of the pencils for me to review next week. Very exciting! My hope is to make the wait for issue #2 tolerable by dropping little snapshots of the progress as we get closer. There is so much stuff being added to the story in this next issue that I had to warn Darren these panels are going to be working hard. I’m sure there will be some choice cuts I can sneak out for all of you to see!
