Well, I just got back from the post office, and I’m happy to finally be able to say that my fencing/noir story is officially on its way to a handful of French comic book publishers. Now comes the fun part… waiting, worrying ("Did the package make it there okay ?" "What if they don’t like the art?" etc. etc.) and waiting some more. I submitted the book to five of my favorite publishers over here and I hope at least one of them will be interested in the story I have to tell.
Here are a couple of the sample pages I sent(some of you folks out there may recognize them, as I posted the b&w versions here a few months ago), my first attempt at coloring in the two-tone style made famous by Seth, Mike Cho and Darwyn Cooke, all artists whose work I really admire.
