Pencils are up! Inks and colors will happen soon. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a young Gus.

Here are some process shots of how the strip came together:

    WOW! Awesome piece of work!
    Its packed with gags.
    Tells a concentrated story.
    Has time-setting elements/references.
    I like the Gus-story/versus/reality angle a lot.
    And of course, the art rocks!
    Georgie? LOL!!!!! Hair on fire? LOL!!!!
    Man, Krishna, this one alone is a masterpiece of comic story cobbling. And I just started reading this one from the mailer, so there’s even more.
    As well, there is so much extra info on the post itself, its dense with good stuff and related info. Extremely well organized.
    Is this a new comic story era for you? I’d be hard pressed to find anyone doing this kind of work online. Kudos, my friend!

      Thanks for the kudos, Jose!

      I’m really excited about the direction of the story, and I’m glad you are enjoying it as well. As I’ve mentioned before, the basic idea for this story has been trapped inside my head for more than a year now, so it feels great to finally commit and put it out there for readers to enjoy.

Tell me what you think!
