Even still, it may not be a bad idea to figure out a way to explain that "error" in the comic itself - after all, most people don't go to this forum and may be going "hunh?".

This coming from the guy who's never heard of "Motion paths', and whose informal spelling is attrocious ;) *whistles innocently*

And yeah. That's one of the reasons I really hated Ron Lims art... There was no dynamic visual effects or variation in the action. Either it was mostly mid level close ups, or the character running with a few straight lines. Conversely, Tracy's art screams exagerated poses and stances, with simple yet stylish and attractive movement. It looks ALIVE.

Just like Mammoth Mogul has Bristley Tusks. Every morning he polishes them with his Mammoth Tusk Polishing Kit.

Hmmm..... I know i havn't posted anything in a long time on either this or Ken's board, but I just cant think of anything to post. I mean now that DST is over the comic has slowed down again to its usual pace.

I suppose i should say something since this is the ask Ian section. Hmmmm? What else have you worked on? How did you break into the industry? Were you like Stan Lee who was just a kid who worked there doing odd jobs until someone took pitty on you and let you prove your worth? or did you just apply and get hired?

Also on a not question area, thank you for making the comic something I enjoy reading again, instead of something I buy out of a obligation to keep an old friend in print.

Just a quick question Ian, In StH #120, Mighty tells Julie-Su how he hopes to one day find out what happened to his family… any chance you will be picking up on this, maybe in a backup story?

And also did we ever learn what Constable Remington secret was from his past (KtE #24); if not will you be answering this on your run on the comic?

Thanks a lot in advance

Thank you for the compliments, as always! All your questions have been covered already in previous threads, though.

I'd like to address it sometime in the future, but I don't know when we might do so.

It was my understanding that the secret was Remington's father, which (in the comic) has been heavily hinted to be the late Kragok and unofficially confirmed by Ken Penders. I do hope to address that issue as well one day.

While it was a very well written issue overall, there were quite a number of technical errors, your scene for example, as well as a number of misattributed word balloons. What I'm trying to ask is, after your script is submitted and approved, how much more involvement do you have on that story? Or wished you had? Not to marginalize Mike's efforts but the original author would seem to be the highest authority as to the accuracy of the finished product.

Yes, three is a number. (Page 6, Panel 3). Otherwise things lined up spot-on. Issac was colored silver rather than gold and there's the Egg Grape issue we've addressed already. There were some hiccups, but not enough to undermine the purpose of the book.

Usually very little. On occasion there are tweaks that have to be made well after the fact for various reasons. I've talked with Tracy a few times to tweak the "finished" product to result in something better visually. But everything from last-minute word changes, balloon placement, coloring, etc. is enforced by Mike. If I have special notes on anything, I try to include them in the scripts, but I have not authoritative control over the production once it's out of my hands.

*Gasp* WHY YOU!!!! *shakes fist in rage*

XD

Hah! What's funny is Ian went and edited his post, which is the very reason there was originally no edit function ;) I place my cards on the table sir, and demand three quarters of your wealth, a donkey to carry said wealth, and a hand drawn pic of Princess Sally.

Having said that, I return this thread to it's regularly scheduled topic.

You do realize the donkey would be more valuable than its burden, right? I might just do that Sally pic, though. I'll add it to my list of Sonic-things-to-do today - including the next Script Bits.
