For issue #3, I’ll be posting my rough layouts along with each page. Since the writer, Mike Barr, and I were working “Marvel Style” (in that he gave me a fairly fleshed out plot outline as opposed to a finished script, writing the dialogue and captions to my penciled pages) I suggested possible dialogue to go along with my staging, anticipating that Mike, or the editor, Bob Schreck, would ask for changes in my layouts before I went into the tight pencils. This was how we worked in the animation biz; I had been trained to accept that as a normal part of the collaborative process.
As you can see, the lettering was a part of my page design from them beginning. In the case of the splash panel, I wanted to create the feel of a target or a vortex centering on the fallen figures of The Mark and The Archon.

This is page 2 for "The Mark" issue 2, volume 2, otherwise known as "The Mark In America", published by Dark Horse Comics in January 1994. Written by Mike Barr, Drawn by Brad Rader
