... the dark side of HUZZAH!!

This little page made me nervous also, as I attempted in this, my debut page, to do justice to the fabulous 'Huzzah Noir' team and the 'film noir' genre I adore.
On the whole I am fairly satisfied with this page though. Not least of all, because the black and white comic inks so lend themselves to the echoing the film noir world.
Big thanks go out to Faz for his inspiring opening to the new chapter and especially to Rob for his invaluable scripting input in the final stretch.

...the 'follow that' syndrome


It was always gonna be a tough act to follow, as not only was I having to build on a well received first page, but since then, several wonderful pages of comic art had been posted by artists I admire immensely.
So it was with no small regret that I feel I did not achieve the level of quality I needed to meet, in order to glean any real satisfaction from this page. But I am hoping I learnt a lot in 'not' getting there!
Which is, for me, the beauty of 'HUZZAH!!'. It forces your hand and makes you play the game as professionally as you possibly can, but without any client breathing down your neck, just you ... and the Huzzah team and everyone that follows the blogs and ... and ... chuckle!
What scary fun it is!
