In pages 19 and 20 I did my first explorations into something that has fascinated me ever since: how to convey simultaneous action in comics or any other sequential media. I was also trying to give the feeling of accelerating tempo, hence the 5 staccato vertical panels taking the top half of the page, culminating in the explosion panel, taking the bottom half of the page.
I am serially posting each page from Gotham Adventures #33, published by DC Comics in February, 2001. I will be posting Ed Brubaker’s script, my roughs, pencils and printed versions of each page. This is day 20, page 20. All posts in this series are archived on my website blog, http://blog.raderofthelostart.com
