Proto-Angie Bongiolatti - part 1
Now that copies of my new book are dribbling out into the Real World, pages from this shelved comic might be of interest. They’re from an early draft of what eventually turned into Angie Bongiolatti. There are familiar characters, and plenty of situations and dialogue that I repurposed in the final story, but everything here is a little bit different.
This is an excellent example of what’s been my primary working method for my last two projects, which is to dive into a story and make lots of lots of pages, and then when I realize what it is I really want to write about, scrapping the lot and starting again. (I discussed this at length with Dan Berry on his Make it Then Tell Everybody podcast, here)
I’ll be posting pages from this unseen draft all week, and on into next week too I expect, because there are quite a lot of them.
