The Living End...The Graphic Novel
It's been months that I talked with writer James Robert Smith about adapting his novel The Living End into a graphic novel. Our first foray was adapting his novel, The Flock, into a GN but once the rights were signed over to Warner Bros for the movie deal, all publishing rights went away. After having an early Winter storm that knocked out our power, and still has, I found myself with time to sit and take one of the more picturesque scenes in Bob's novel and lay it out as thumbnails. I changed the zombie money shot a little bit, but I still think it works very well. My goal was to also give our dog star BC, a little more personality, especially with ear, eye and tail positioning. I think he's a huge star!
